Kettering area dentist discusses the benefits of dental implants

If you are missing teeth, chances are you have experienced some of the side effects that go along with it. Missing teeth can affect the ability to bite and chew properly, speak efficiently, and affect the appearance of the smile. Whether the teeth were lost due to injury, decay, or extraction, it is important to seek solutions to restore the smile.

When the smile is left with the gaps from missing teeth, it can allow remaining teeth to shift out of place. This can lead to numerous dental issues including the need for orthodontic treatment, difficulty properly cleaning teeth, and a loss of bone structure.

At Alex Bell Dental, Dr. Cobb and the team have years of experience providing beautiful, functional restorations. One of the most popular is dental implants.

Dental implants are a permanent option for tooth replacement that can give patients the functionality and appearance of natural teeth. They consist of artificial tooth roots that are implanted into the jawbone. The implants are then left to heal and fuse with the jawbone. Once this process is complete, the implants are fitted with an abutment and can then be completed with affixed dentures, crowns, or dental bridges. No other dental restoration available provides stability and durability that rivals natural teeth. Unlike other restorations, dental implants can last a lifetime.

The entire dental implant process can take several months to complete, as the implants require ample time to heal. Patients are fitted with temporary restorations during this period. During the procedure, patients can take advantage of dental sedation for a relaxing and comfortable experience.

Dental implants are versatile. They can be used for one missing tooth, or used when an entire arch of teeth is missing. For denture patients, dental implants provide stabilization that can prevent the dentures from moving around or falling out.

If you are in Kettering, Centerville, or the surrounding area, there are options for your missing teeth. Call the team at Alex Bell Dental today to schedule your consultation and learn how you can get your smile back.
