Smyrna dental office
If you have missing teeth, there are several different ways that you can have your teeth replaced at our Highland Dental office. Patients come to see us to get dentures, bridges, or dental implants. Dental implants are a very popular way to replace missing teeth because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you would like to see our dentist, Dr. Michael Nguyen, regarding getting dental implants at our Smyrna dentist office, simply contact us today.
When you come to our practice wanting to get dental implants to replace your missing teeth, our dentist will first need to analyze your particular dental and jawbone situation. Your jawbone will need to be thick enough and healthy enough in order to completely heal from the oral surgery, and to firmly support the dental implants whence they have fused to the jawbone. Once our dentist determines that you are a good candidate for dental implants, you will have a titanium dental implant root inserted into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Dental implants can also be used to hold implant-supported dentures. Once your dental implants are precisely placed into your jawbone by a procedure at our Smyrna dental office, there will then be a healing period of several months during which time your jawbone will fully heal and the dental implants will firmly fuse to your jawbone.
Once our Smyrna dentist determines that the dental implants and your jawbone have completed the healing process, he will then proceed to permanently attach a beautiful porcelain crown to the top part of each dental implant root. The dental implant crown will perfectly color match year adjacent teeth so no one will ever be able to tell that you have dental implants. In fact, you too will soon forget that you even have them in your mouth. At this point your dental implants are complete and you will be able to smile and speak in total confidence once again. You also will be able to eat anything you want in total comfort – including corn on the cob and steak. If well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic teeth cleanings, your dental implants should last a lifetime.
