Discover why so many people are treating their tooth loss with dental implants.

Implants offer our patients the ability to replace missing teeth with a false tooth that both looks and functions like a real tooth. Implants replace the roots of the teeth, providing a long-term foundation from which to support one or more false teeth. If you are wondering whether you should turn to our Marietta, GA, dentist Dr. James Hutson for implants you may be wondering what unique benefits it can offer.

Here are some of the advantages of getting dental implants,

Enjoy your new tooth for life

With proper oral care, it’s possible to keep your dental implant for several decades. Better yet, implants don’t require special care. All you have to do is treat them like real teeth, making sure you brush and floss them daily to ensure that your implant stays healthy and problem-free.

Prevent bone loss

This is a major advantage to choosing dental implants. Implants act just like tooth roots, which means that they stimulate the jawbone in the exact same way as real roots. Why is this important? The jawbone needs constant stimulation from the roots of your teeth in order to remain strong.

When one or more teeth fall out this reduces the amount of stimulation the jawbone receives, which causes the bone to deteriorate. Implants are the only tooth replacement option that can actually provide the jawbone with the stimulation it needs.

Keep teeth where they are

The last thing you want is for the rest of your natural teeth to start to move and shift around, which is something that will happen if you don’t fill the gap in your smile. By placing a dental implant as soon as possible after tooth loss, our Marietta, GA, restorative dentist can also prevent teeth from shifting and moving around, which in turn can prevent more gaps between teeth, crowding or crookedness from occurring.

Restore your bite

When you have a gap in your smile it throws your bite off, causing your jaws to put more force and pressure on some teeth rather than distributing the weight and force evenly. By getting a dental implant that is anchored into your jawbone, this will allow you to bite and chew with about the same force as you would if you still had all of your teeth. A dental implant also makes it possible to still enjoy all the foods you love without any of the challenges that come with having gaps in your smile.
