Did you have a damaged tooth extracted, and do you feel self-conscious of the gap in your smile? Restoring a missing tooth is important to your oral health because missing teeth can weaken your jawbone. Our team at Dental Implant and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta would be happy to speak with you about dental implants and the benefits they provide.
Because dental implants are not removable, they are very durable and allow you to eat the foods that dentures may not be able to withstand. By restoring the function of your teeth, dental implants enable a healthy diet that promotes body and jaw health. Your dental implants can give your jaw a lifetime of use.
Dental implants are so beneficial to your jawbone because they are secured directly into the bone. If a tooth is missing, your jaw can deteriorate over time and begin to decay, but with a dental implant in place, the jawbone undergoes osseointegration, in which it fuses with the implant to strengthen the bone form a tight bond with the implant to recreate the root of the missing tooth.
