Dental Implants in John’s Creek
In the United States, approximately half of people between the ages of 18 and 64 are missing one or more teeth. However, if you need to have a tooth replaced, don’t worry! Our team of dentists can provide high-quality services to help make your smile beautiful. There are several ways to replace single or multiple missing teeth, but dental implants have by far become the easiest and most cost-effective treatment we use to give you the ability to chew and smile again!
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the best way to restore your smile if you’ve lost a tooth to gum disease or tooth decay. Once complete, they’re designed to match the color and the look of your surrounding teeth. We also place multiple implants to support a loose denture so it will “snap” in to place eliminating the need for denture adhesives.
Dental implants have become a very popular and safe way to replace missing teeth. We use titanium implants that are placed where the missing tooth or teeth were located. Once the implant is placed, a porcelain crown, bridge or denture is fabricated to restore your smile. It’s literally like getting brand new teeth again!
How Do You Take Care of Dental Implants?
Taking care of your dental implants is easy. For the most part, you take care of them the same way you would take care of your natural teeth. It’s important to brush and floss the implant, crown or bridge, and to make regular appointments so that we can monitor the implants and make sure that they’re functioning properly.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Implants are very natural looking
- The integration of the implants into your jaw makes them very stable and comfortable compared to traditional dentures
- They last a lifetime
- They require very straightforward care
- They improve your oral health
- They make eating easier if you’re missing a tooth or teeth, and you can eat normally once the dental implants are placed, bettering your nutrition
- Dental implants can make you look younger by preserving your jawbone
- Dental implants will make it easier to speak if you’re missing a tooth
Losing teeth can also have a negative impact on your jawbone, as its primary purpose is to hold your teeth in place. When you lose teeth, your body thinks that you don’t need the bone in that area and that can lead to bone loss.
While getting dental implants can be an investment, if you’re missing one or more teeth they can drastically improve your life and your oral health.
