While dental implants may seem like a recent innovation, they are actually a time-tested tooth replacement solution that has been used for decades with a 98 percent success rate!
Patients prefer implants because they are a fixed, permanent tooth replacement. An implant is placed in your jaw and becomes a permanent part of your dental anatomy. This means they are a solid foundation for a number of restorations including crowns, bridges, dentures, and partials. Once restored, a dental implant acts, looks, and functions just like a natural tooth.
Dentists choose implants because they not only look and act like a natural tooth, they also promote healthy growth of bone and tissue in the jaw. When a natural tooth and its root are lost, the jawbone deteriorates and loses its strength and density. Implants are the only tooth replacement that preserves and stimulates natural bone growth.
Dental implants have received a lot of attention lately because they are the gold standard for tooth replacement. If you would like to find out if one or more implants are the right choice for you, please call Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry to arrange a convenient consultation with Dr. Kai to discuss your needs.
