Missing teeth can have a dramatic impact on your quality of life.
Health Issues From Missing Teeth
You may find it difficult to chew properly, which can lead to discomfort. Your speech may be affected, causing you to withdraw in social settings. Most importantly, embarrassment about missing teeth can ruin your self-confidence. You may also face alignment issues because neighboring teeth will gradually drift into the space left by the missing tooth.
Dental Implants Process
At Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry, dental implants are our preferred tooth-replacement method. Implants take over the job of the missing tooth root by stimulating healthy regrowth of the bone that supports your teeth. Without a dental implant, the bone resorbs, or breaks down, because it lacks the stimulation that a natural tooth root would have provided.
A dental implant is designed to attach to a tooth restoration like a crown or bridge. We can also use multiple implants to hold a full or partial denture securely in place.
