Find out how dental implants can give you back the smile you lost.dental implants

Tooth loss doesn’t have to be forever, especially when you have our Athens, AL, dentist, Dr. R. Brad Beasley, on your side. If you are missing one or more permanent teeth then it’s time you found out what dental implants can do to restore your smile.

Most people want a replacement tooth that is as close to a real tooth as possible. While dentures or dental bridges may be less expensive and quicker to get, they don’t offer the same amazing benefits as dental implants. Implants are the only tooth replacements that truly work in much the same way as a natural tooth.

What does an implant do?

This small metal post or screw is placed into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth roots. While you may not realize it, the tooth roots are so very important to the health of your mouth, particularly your jawbone. Your jawbone needs tooth roots in order to remain stable and strong. If you lose a tooth the jawbone will also begin to deteriorate. The only way to prevent bone loss is to place an implant where your missing tooth roots used to be.

How do you get implants?

Getting dental implants in Athens is a multi-step process that includes:

Your Consultation

We need to make sure that your mouth is healthy enough for getting dental implants. This means that we will need to examine your mouth and also run X-rays to check the health of your mouth, particularly the health of your jawbone (since it will need to be strong enough to support the implant).

Placing the Implant

The first step after your consultation is to place the implant into the jawbone. Once the implant is placed there is a waiting period as the implant fuses with the jawbone. Once this is complete we will open the gums up again to place an artificial structure known as an abutment, which will serve to connect the implant with a dental crown.

Securing the Dental Crown

Once the abutment has been placed we will then secure the dental crown over the abutment to complete your restoration.
