More than 3 million Americans have improved their lives with dental implants, and that number is growing every year! When it comes to replacing missing teeth, no other teeth replacement option is as reliable and durable as dental implants.
That’s because when you lose a tooth, you actually lose two things: the visible crown of the tooth and the root. Dental implants allow you to replace the root of the missing tooth with a titanium prosthetic. It’s a comfortable and reliable way to replace a tooth!
Plus, there’s a dental implant solution for almost everyone at Atlanta West Dentistry!
Whether you’re missing one tooth or an entire set, we can help you restore dental function and confidence. Dental implants can be restored with custom-made dental crowns, dental bridges, and even full dental arch prosthetics!
Read on for five reasons why you’ll love dental implants. Then, give our Marietta, GA office a call at 770-744-4619 to find out whether dental implants are right for you.
1. Dental Implants Offer Unmatched Security And Durability.
When dental implants were introduced more than 50 years ago, they were game-changing. That’s because when it comes to replacing missing teeth, many solutions simply replace just the visible part of the missing tooth. That’s not the case with dental implants.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are inserted into your jaw, where the root of the missing tooth once stood. In time, your jaw bone heals around the dental implant, holding it and the attached dental restoration in place.
The result is an artificial tooth that’s incredibly lifelike, one that offers unmatched security and durability. Your dental prosthetic isn’t held in place with adhesives or metal clasps, so it’s discreet and reliable.
2. It’s A Comfortable Procedure At Atlanta West Dentistry.
The idea of having a dental implant inserted into your jaw might sound scary, but some of our patients have said that getting a dental implant placed is easier than having a cavity filled!
That’s because at Atlanta West Dentistry, we go the extra mile to make sure the process of placing a dental implant is a comfortable one.
We’ve invested in the latest dental technology, such as a 3D cone beam X-ray device to help us more thoroughly plan your treatment. This results in more comfortable and precise placement of dental implants!
Computer-assisted dentistry in implant placement allows us to perform the procedure with minimal pain, soreness, and swelling.
But if you’re hoping to further minimize stress and discomfort during your procedure, you can choose from three dental sedation options:
- Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, provides a mild euphoria and sense of calm.
- Oral conscious sedation is administered in the form of a pill, which will help you relax.
- IV sedation is the deepest form of sedation we offer. You’ll experience your procedure as if you were in a dream!
3. Regain Your Dental Function.
If you’ve been living with missing teeth for a while, you know how much of a pain eating can be — both literally and figuratively. If you’re ready to eat the foods you love again without hesitation or discomfort, dental implants can help you regain your dental function.
In fact, dental implants can restore up to 90 percent of the bite force of natural teeth! You’ll be able to more easily enjoy a healthy diet and experience improved overall health.
Plus, there’s an added benefit to chewing with dental implants.
Dental implants allow your jaw bone to continue being engaged while you chew, since the bone absorbs the force of your bite. That’s not the case with prosthetics that simply rest on the gums (such as dentures). When the jaw bone is not supporting a tooth root, it begins to deteriorate. So, dental implants also promote a healthy jaw!
4. Caring For Dental Implants Is Easy.
Dental implants look and feel like real teeth. So, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that you care for them the same way you would natural teeth!
You’ll simply continue to brush and floss regularly, and you’ll come in for dental checkups and professional cleanings every six months. There are no special adhesives or rinses to worry about!
5. They Can Last A Lifetime.
With proper care, dental implants can last you a lifetime. Because of this, dental implants are truly an investment in your overall health and happiness.
