Dental Implants are Permanent, Beautiful, and Realistic
Replace missing teeth without dentures or bridges when you opt for dental implants from Catlett Family Dentistry
There was a time when dentures were the only option for replacing missing teeth. It was common practice for dentists to remove remaining teeth to prepare the gums and mouth for plates of false teeth. These days, thankfully, the process of replacing teeth has come a long way and there is no need to sacrifice perfectly good teeth to make room for uncomfortable dentures. At Catlett Family Dentistry, we are pleased to provide our patients with the option of dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are growing in popularity because they are permanent solutions to missing teeth. Rather than go without a complete set of teeth, patients can have a single tooth replaced with an implant. Made from titanium rods and surgically placed in the bone of the gums, implants don’t move once they’ve settled into the space. Using a crown to finish the implant off, your teeth will look better than ever, and you’ll be able to treat your new implant as if it was your real tooth.
What is the Process of Getting Dental Implants?
First, you’ll want to book a consultation to discuss options for implants. Our friendly dentists in Fayetteville will help you determine whether or not this is the best treatment option for you. In some cases, not all patients can opt for a dental implant, especially if there are issues with bone degeneration in the jawline.
Once we know you are a good fit for the procedure, we’ll order a surgical guide to help place your implant. Once placed and healed, your new crown will be placed on top of the titanium post and you’ll be on your way. The entire process can take several months from start to finish so the sooner you contact our dental office, the sooner you can get started and finish with a beautiful smile.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
It goes without saying that dental implants are very beneficial because you don’t have to remove it and the risks of it falling out are very small. Implants look and feel like your real teeth and they provide you with a great deal of stability to eat, drink, smile, talk, laugh, and even play sports. Because they look and feel like your real teeth, people won’t be able to tell you’ve had dental work done.
