Missing Teeth? Give Your Smile New Life with Dental Implants
Losing natural teeth can be disheartening. It’s hard to smile with confidence when you have significant gaps in your smile. Fortunately, there are restorative dental options for resolving tooth loss issues, one of which is dental implants.Implants from Lifestyle Dentistry in Smyrna, Georgia, will infuse new life into your smile so you can confidently flash your pearly whites.
The Implant Process
Implant treatment is a process that involves oral surgery. Dr. Aja Nichols will surgically insert the implant into your jawbone and wait for it to fuse with your bone system, a process that can take up to six months to complete. This implant will function like a tooth root in supporting your replacement tooth. Once the implant has healed, Dr. Nichols will add an abutment to hold your restoration and wait two weeks for it to heal. Lastly, a restoration is attached to make your smile complete.
Rebuild Your Smile Naturally
Implants can rebuild your smile naturally, as they look, feel and function like natural teeth. They’re the only dental restorative treatment that replaces your teeth and their roots to give you a smile that’s strong, secure, and stable.
