Smyrna, GA dentist explains the dental implant

Restoring the smile may need to be done if patients are experiencing problems such as tooth loss. Disease, extraction, and trauma can all contribute to the loss of natural teeth, and it is imperative that patients in Smyrna, GA address the problem as soon as possible to maintain the alignment and health of their smile. When tooth loss occurs, patients may speak to Dr. Lamothe, the dentist at Smyrna Dental & Headache Center to learn about the various methods available for replacement.

In most instances, Dr. Lamothe will suggest the placement of dental implants. Dental implants are the best restorations available for the replacement of natural teeth. They offer several benefits. They are:

  • Natural in appearance
  • Strong and durable
  • Long-lasting
  • Versatile
  • Easy to maintain

Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, hold a dental bridge to replace several teeth, or to use in conjunction with full dentures to hold them steady. Dental implants are titanium metal posts, which Dr. Lamothe surgically implants into the jawbone. The process of osseointegration occurs, during which bone growth is stimulated and wraps around the implant to hold it in place. The implant is then restored with a crown, bridge, or denture to complete the restoration process.

Proper candidates for dental implants are patients with enough bone structure to hold the implant in place and ensure successful implantation into the bone. This can be determined with x-rays to examine the bone structure underneath the gum tissue. Patients must also have a relatively healthy mouth free from cavities and periodontal disease, as this can greatly affect the success of placement.

Dental implants are becoming extremely common due to their naturally high success rates. They can last a lifetime when patients maintain proper oral hygiene habits at home and visit their dentist regularly for cleanings and examinations at least twice a year.

Dr. Lamothe of Smyrna Dental & Headache Center is excited to offer dental implants to patients who are ready to improve the appearance of their smile after natural tooth loss. Call today to schedule an initial consultation and examination to determine candidacy for this cosmetic procedure.
