Losing a tooth can stir up a lot of feelings. We understand, but we don’t want you to spend any time worrying because your priority now is to replace the missing tooth. You’ll feel better about yourself without a gap in your smile, and it’s also essential for maintaining your oral health.
Tooth Loss Can Lead to Bone Loss
When you lose a tooth, you lose the root that stimulates the regeneration of bone in your jaw. The bone starts to resorb or shrink back into the body, gums recede, and the loss of bulk in your mouth causes your cheeks to sink in and give you an aged appearance. Eventually, you may start to lose surrounding teeth.
Dental implants placed at our Alpharetta, GA dental office are the only tooth replacement that will stop this bone loss. A dental implant is a titanium replacement root that Dr. Kai Liang places surgically in your jaw.
As the implant heals, it fuses with the bone and tissue around it. Ultimately, it becomes a permanent part of your dental structure. When we attach a dental crown, bridge, or denture to it, you’ll have a tooth that’s looks, functions and feels as close to a natural tooth as possible.
