Want to learn more about dental implants from your Lawrenceville, GA, dentist?
Dr. Tu Nguyen of AT Dental, PC offers patients who have missing teeth with dental implants. They are reliable, long lasting and comfortable oral appliances. Dental implants are made of a titanium post that's inserted in a person's jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. A screw and abutment fasten a permanent crown on top of the implant to finish off the procedure.
The whole procedure takes about 3-to-6 months so that the titanium post properly fuses with the jawbone to reinforce bones in a process called osseointegration.
There are many advantages to using dental implants.
Here are a few:
- Beautify Your Smile: Dental implants replace missing teeth and improve your appearance. You'll feel more confident with your new smile as you walk out of your dentist's office.
- Improve Oral Function: Dental implants restore bite and chewing function, as well as speech. This makes it easier to eat and speak, and you won't have to worry about dental implants feeling loose or slipping out of your mouth.
- Prevents Bone Loss: When you don't replace missing teeth, you may suffer serious problems. When left unreplaced, bones deteriorate and cause the face to sink in. Dental implant's titanium post stimulates bone growth, distributes chewing forces and reinforces your jawbone.
- Prevent Teeth Shifting: When missing teeth aren't replaced, your natural teeth begin to shift out of place. Dental implants keep teeth in place.
- Increase Your Self-Esteem: It's hard to smile when you have a missing tooth/teeth. It impacts a person's self-esteem and makes it difficult to do something as simple as smiling. Dental implants improve your smile and make you feel better about yourself.
