Patients who are missing one or more teeth once had to select from very limited options, like dentures, partials, or bridges. Luckily, we are now able to offer patients a safe, attractive, long-lasting option. If you’re missing one or more teeth, let the experienced team here at Grady Dental Care in Cumming, GA show you how modern dental implants can restore your natural, beautiful smile.
Unlike other options, a dental implant replaces the entire tooth, including the root. A titanium implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone and capped with a replacement crown. Because it functions much like a natural tooth, implants offer many advantages over other alternatives:
- Permanent: Most patients who follow a regular oral hygiene regimen can expect their implants to last a lifetime
- Improved cosmetic appearance: The dental implant looks and feels like a natural tooth, and crowns can be made with all-ceramic materials.
- Better oral health: Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not increase tooth decay or sensitivity because the implant seamlessly integrates into your jawbone.
- Improved jawbone strength: Implants can keep your jawbone strong because they don’t rely on support from adjacent teeth. And because the jawbone needs to support the implant, no atrophy of the bone occurs.
If you’re missing a tooth, we would be happy to show you how dental implants can improve your oral health and quality of life. To arrange your consultation with our Cumming dental implant specialists, please contact us today at Grady Dental Care, or call (678) 822-0288.
