Whether your smile has no remaining natural teeth or you had to have one or two teeth pulled due to certain situations, your dentist can help you replace your missing teeth in the most permanent and effective way possible with dental implants. This revolutionary procedure will not only replace your teeth, but keep your oral tissues healthy by replacing your tooth’s root as well. Learn more about dental implants with Dr. John Massey at Augusta Smile Care in Augusta, GA.

How can dental implants help me? 
Dental implants benefit those missing one or more teeth. Dentists use one implant to replace one tooth. However, replacing several teeth in a row requires only two implants on either side of a dental bridge. Dentists replace all of the teeth on an arch using four or more implants throughout the arch. Your dentist can help you determine which type of implant is best for you and your teeth.

The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are unique in that they lie within the bone underneath your missing tooth. Thanks to your body’s natural healing abilities, the bone in which the implant lies grows around it to hold it securely in place. This renders the procedure completely permanent. Implants are often considered to be the next best thing to natural teeth. The prosthetic teeth used are made from porcelain, which reflects light in the same way as natural teeth, helping them blend perfectly into your smile. Implants also restore the biting surface of your teeth, making chewing more efficient and helping with the breakdown of your food before it enters the digestive tract.

Dental Implants in Augusta, GA 
The dental implants process usually requires several consultations and appointments and patients normally need several months of recovery time to allow their implants to properly integrate into the bone. This integration is crucial to a successful procedure and cannot be rushed. With the implants in place and fully integrated into the bone to replace your tooth’s root, your dentist will attach your replacement teeth to the implant, completing your smile.
