Want to know more about dental implants and how they can makeover your toothless smile?

Tooth loss can be devastating, no matter if you are missing just one tooth or all of your teeth. Our Radcliff, KY, dentist,, Dr. Ernest Skaggs,dental implants offers a full range of restorative dentistry to make sure that you get the care you need to treat your tooth loss. Of course, many people are turning to dental implants to replace their missing teeth because they offer a variety of unique benefits. Learn more about what implants could do for your smile.

A dental implant is a titanium post that is safe to use around the bone and soft tissue. Its main job is to replace your tooth roots. The only way for an implant to actually replace your tooth roots is for our Radcliff, KY, general dentist to surgically place the implant into the jawbone. What makes implants unique from other tooth restorations is that they actually fuse together with your jawbone and tissue. This means that an implant is designed to last the rest of your life if you maintain it and keep it healthy.

Dental implants boast countless benefits:

1. They make it vastly easier to chew food. Even dentures may slip around in your mouth, making it difficult to eat your favorite foods, but with dental implants, you won’t be afraid to bite into that juicy burger again.

2. You’ll find confidence not only in your appearance again but also in speaking. You won’t have to worry about your teeth shifting around in your mouth or dealing with speech affected by missing teeth.

3. You have a restoration that is strong, durable and designed to function just like a real tooth. By far, this is the best long-term solution for replacing your missing teeth.

4. Implants are also designed to look just like a natural tooth so you won’t have to worry that people will be able to tell which tooth is an implant and which ones are actually yours.

5. They also prevent jawbone deterioration. Since they naturally meld together with the jawbone, they stimulate the development of new bone cells. This prevents bone loss and keeps your jawbone healthy.

Do dental implants sound like the treatment you’ve been looking for? If so, then it’s time you called your Radcliff, KY, dentist, Dr. Skaggs, to schedule your no-risk consultation. Trust us; you’ll be happy you did!
