Taking a Deeper Look into Why Patients in Kennesaw, GA Are Choosing Dental Implants from 32 Dental

Are you tired of hiding your smile due to decreased self-confidence caused by missing teeth? Millions of Americans face this issue each day. A smile with missing teeth can be embarrassing due to the social stigmas which come with that. While we all wish it were not true, many people will be judged immediately (to some extent) based on their smile. If you are looking for an answer to missing teeth, you should consider what dental implants can do for you. Drs. Breckley and Lan Vo and the team at 32 Dental in Kennesaw, GA, have been placing tooth implants for years with incredible success.

How A Dental Implant Can Improve Your Life

Dental implants are a great option for anybody who is missing teeth. A dental implant consists of titanium posts, which are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once the jawbone has fused to the metal posts, an abutment and then an artificial tooth (most often in the form of a crown) is then attached to the titanium post. The result is a natural-looking artificial tooth that will last for years. Many who choose a dental implant do so for cosmetic reasons. You will immediately notice a renewed self-confidence in yourself just because you will want to show off your newly completed smile.

Outside of the cosmetic improvements a tooth implant can provide, some individuals require an implant for dental health reasons. When you lost a tooth (or have it extracted) and do not replace that tooth, there are several detrimental outcomes that you could find yourself up against, including:

  • Shifting Teeth: When you have an open gap in your smile, the adjacent teeth will slowly begin to shift into that gap, causing further issues with your smile. Your bite will be negatively impacted, and you may begin noticing issues with proper speech and with a decreased ability to chew food.
  • Bone Loss: A leading cause of jawbone loss is an individual’s failure to replace a missing tooth. Teeth play a large role in helping to stimulate and support your jawbone. When a tooth is lost, that stimulation is no longer there, and, over time, jawbone loss can begin to occur.
  • Facial Appearance: When you lost teeth, it is not only your smile that takes the aesthetic hit. If you have lost several teeth and have not replaced them (through either dentures or implants), your face could begin to take a sunken and aging look. Think about somebody you know who has removable dentures and how they look when the dentures are removed. This is what will happen, eventually, when teeth are not replaced.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

The Benefits of Dental Implants at 32 Dental in Kennesaw GA AreaNow that we have explored why somebody would be likely to consider getting dental implants, let’s look closer into dental implants. Specifically, let us take a quick look at some of the benefits offered by implants put into place by Dr. Breckley and his team at 32 Dental.

  1. A tooth implant should function and feel completely natural. Your chewing power should be fully restored and nobody, not even you, should be able to tell the difference between the implant and your natural teeth. Eating, brushing, and flossing should all feel just as normal as ever.
  2. A tooth implant should, when taken care of, last a lifetime. The titanium implant fuses with the jawbone and is bio-compatible and should not be rejected by the body. The crown may require replacing at some point, but the implant itself should not need to be revisited.
  3. Adjacent teeth need the stability that is provided naturally by surrounding teeth. When a tooth (or multiple teeth) is suddenly gone, this stability wavers and teeth can begin to shift, your bite can be affected, and even your temporomandibular joint can begin to cause problems due to missing teeth. Replacing with an implant can help prevent many dental issues that could surface in the future.

If you are ready to fix a smile that is missing teeth, there really is not a better option available than a dental crown.
