Find out why so many adults are turning to dental implants to restore their smiles.

A dental implant is a tooth replacement option that doesn’t just replace the visible portion of your tooth, but also the tooth roots. The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone by our Marietta, GA, cosmetic dentist, Dr. James Hutson, to restore both appearance and functionality.

Here are some of the top benefits related to this treatment option:

Dental Implants Function Like Natural Teeth

When you lose a tooth, you want to ensure that the artificial tooth you get feels as close to the real thing as possible, and nothing comes as close as a dental implant. In fact, an implant is the only tooth replacement option that replaces the roots of the tooth, meaning that it will look, feel, and even function just like a real tooth will.

Eat What You Love Without Worry

People with tooth loss know just how frustrating it is to chew certain foods. In fact, you may find yourself having trouble with digestion or having to avoid some foods altogether. Instead of fearing mealtimes, dental implants can fully restore chewing so you can eat what you want without worry. Since implants naturally fuse together with the jawbone they won’t shift or move around in your mouth. You’ll have a false tooth that is as strong and capable of chewing food as the rest of your natural teeth. In fact, you may see a vast improvement in your digestion after receiving your dental implant.

Implants Preserve the Jawbone

One of the biggest benefits of dental implants, and one of the main reasons people here in Marietta, GA, choose to receive dental implants, is that these artificial tooth roots provide the jawbone with the same stimulation that real tooth roots provide. This means that if implants are placed not long after losing your teeth, you can prevent bone loss from occurring at all!

Implants Fill Gaps and Prevent Drifting Teeth

Untreated tooth loss also means that the rest of your natural teeth will eventually begin to drift into open gaps. To prevent this from happening, you need to fill those spaces with a false tooth. Since significant jawbone loss and structural changes can occur in just the first year after tooth loss, it’s a good idea to speak with our dental team about receiving dental implants.
