The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants and implant-supported restorations are considered the best way to replace missing teeth because they allow you to chew and speak with the same level of functionality as natural teeth. The benefits of dental implants are far-reaching. Not only do they help to enhance the aesthetics of your smile, but they can also improve your overall oral health, preventing misalignment and stopping bone atrophy at the site of a missing tooth. At Adel Dental Associates in Adel, GA, Dr. Michael McCartney combines his expertise with an artistic touch to maximize the benefits of dental implants for long-lasting results.
Long-Term Oral Health
After a tooth is lost or extracted, the jawbone begins to recede. In order to stop bone atrophy and prevent further tooth loss, Dr. McCartney may recommend a dental implant treatment. Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural tooth root. Once placed, the body treats the implant as though it were healthy tissue, which promotes bone regrowth. In addition, dental implants provide a stable base upon which implant-supported restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures can be placed.
Other restorations such as removable dentures may slip out of place throughout the day, causing discomfort and irritation. In addition, food and debris can collect below the surface, leaving tissue vulnerable to infection or further bone atrophy if not addressed. Unlike traditional dental bridges, which impact healthy soft and hard tissue, dental implants do not compromise the structure of adjacent teeth, preserving their health.
Dental implants can afford you the opportunity to laugh freely, enjoy your favorite foods, and live without dental discomfort.
Restored Function and Improved Comfort
Dental implants create a firm foundation for an equally durable and natural-looking restoration. Once your implants have successfully fused with your jawbone and your restoration is placed, you can experience restored dental function and improved comfort. With the help of dental implants, you never have to worry about your restoration slipping out of place when you eat or speak.
Improved Appearance and Confidence
With expertise in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. McCartney takes an artistic approach to implant-supported restorations in order to provide each patient with a healthy, natural-looking smile. Each restoration is made from biocompatible materials designed for durability as well as aesthetic enhancement. Dr. McCartney can customize your implant-supported restoration to match the natural color, size, and shape of your smile.
A healthy, bright smile can boost your self-confidence and improve your quality of life. Dental implants can afford you the opportunity to laugh freely, enjoy your favorite foods, and live without dental discomfort.
