Have you lost one or more teeth? Dental implants, a restoration option provided by your Norcross, GA, dentist, Dr. Orson Baek of Smart Family Dental Care, may be the perfect choice for you. Implants offer several important advantages for your oral health, including:

Natural feel

If you're like most people, you probably won't be able to tell the difference between your implant and your natural teeth. Just like natural teeth, implants are firmly rooted in your jawbone. During the first step of the dental implant placement process, your dentist adds a titanium post (the implant) to your jawbone during minor oral surgery. The implant bonds to your jawbone in just a few months and is then topped with a dental crown, an artificial tooth that looks just like the visible part of your missing tooth.

Exceptional biting power

Your ability to bite hard, tough or sticky foods may decline if you choose a restoration option that doesn't replace your tooth roots. Roots give your teeth the power they need to tear, bite, grind and chew a variety of foods. Thanks to your dental implants, you won't have to give up certain foods or shred tough food into tiny pieces before you eat it.

Long-lasting results

In most cases, your dental implants will never need to be replaced. Good oral hygiene and regular visits to the Norcross dental office will help you protect the health of your implants. Although the implants themselves won't need to be replaced, you will need new dental crowns every 10 to 15 years or longer.

Versatility

Unlike other tooth restoration options, dental implants can be used to restore any number of missing teeth. Whether you've lost one tooth due to an accident, infection or decay, or all of your teeth are gone, implants offer a comfortable, attractive solution to tooth loss. Implant-supported dentures and bridges provide all of the same benefits as single dental implants.

Easy care

Your oral hygiene habits won't have to change just because you have dental implants. Daily flossing and brushing will remove plaque from your teeth and gums and keep your implants healthy.
