Why Get Replacement Teeth in Nashville, TN?
For optimal dental health, everyone should have 28 teeth (assuming they have had their four wisdom teeth removed). A full, healthy set of teeth allows you to eat nutritious foods such as apples, corn and meat. Avoiding foods because you have missing teeth means you don’t get all the vitamins and minerals you need.
As important as dental health is, most of the patients who come to our Nashville, Tennessee, dentist office inquiring about implants do so because they feel self-conscious about the gaps in their smile. They may cover their mouth with their hand when they laugh or smile, or look down into their lap so no one sees that they have missing teeth.
Living with missing teeth can affect your self-confidence, stopping you from applying for jobs, asking for dates, attending parties and events, or even going out at all. Getting dental implants can give you your life back.
How Teeth Replacement Procedures Work
Not everyone can get tooth implants — some medical conditions make the procedure unsafe. However, if our dentist believes dental implants can work for you, our first step is to determine if your jaw is healthy enough to implant the titanium post.
If you lost your tooth very recently, you may need to wait for your jaw to grow and fill the space it left. If you lost your tooth many years ago, your jawbone may have atrophied, and you may need bone grafting. Or, if your neighboring teeth have moved into the space left by the tooth you lost, you may need orthodontia to shift them back into place.
Once you’re ready, our dentist implants the post into your jaw. After this step, patients need several months to heal and for their jawbone to grow around the post so it is tight and sturdy. Next, the dentist attaches the abutment and the crown. Then you’re ready to look in the mirror and see your beautiful new smile!
How to Take Care of Tooth Implants
Tooth implants are easy to take care of — you treat them just like your natural teeth, brushing and flossing them regularly. That’s because they are as close to being natural teeth as you can get. No one will know you got an implant if you don’t tell them. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime, and they feel and function just like your other teeth.
