At the Smyrna dental office of Highland Dental, we create individual smiles that compliment a patient’s facial features and enhance their overall facial beauty. Our tooth loss solutions seek to establish facial harmony where the smile is not the central focal point, but enhances the overall facial appearance. One of the ways we do that for our patients is by replacing missing teeth with dental implants.
Whenever you lose a tooth, the force of your bite shifts to the teeth next to the empty space. As your bite changes, it may cause difficulty in chewing, damage to your jaw, cause other teeth to shift and extrude out of socket, and also makes it harder to clean teeth, resulting in tooth decay and periodontal diseases. That is why it is critical to replace missing teeth with dental implants at our Smyrna dental office as soon possible. Our dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed by our dentist into the jawbone where teeth are missing. A colored crown is then cemented on top of the implant. Dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. You will regain the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that your teeth appear natural and that your facial contours will be preserved.
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by our team. At Highland Dental, we take the time to customize and personalize the treatment for each patient that require the replacement of missing teeth, which may include dental implants. Call our Smyrna dental office today with any questions or to schedule an appointment to receive the smile of your dreams.
