More than 3 million Americans have replaced missing teeth with dental implants, and 500,000 more join them annually. The reason is simple: Dental Implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth.
At Fayette Dental Group in Fayette, Georgia, Charley Cheney, DMD, and his team, know this first-hand. They’ve helped countless patients reclaim healthy, confident smiles with state-of-the-art dental implants. Here’s why they recommend dental implants over other replacement options.
Dental implants are permanent
Old-school prosthetics, such as removable bridges and dentures, ride on the surface of your gums.
Dental implants use a manufactured “root” system and a prosthetic crown, the visible portion of your tooth. The root portion of an implant is made from bio-friendly titanium that’s surgically implanted into your jaw and capped later with a realistic-appearing crown.
Once healed, a prosthetic crown is placed, closely mimicking the form and function of your natural teeth.
Dental implants prevent bone loss
When implants are placed in your jawbone, they fuse with your natural bone. This not only provides a secure anchor for your crown, but it also stimulates your jaw bone, preventing bone loss. Preventing bone loss is crucial to maintaining your face shape.
Dental implants function just like natural teeth
Confidently eat whatever you want, from corn on the cob to an apple, with ease and comfort. You’ll never need to worry about embarrassing slippage.
Dental implants offer unparalleled aesthetics
Your crown is shaped and color tinted to match their neighboring natural teeth. It’s virtually impossible to discern the difference between your implant and the rest of your smile.
Dental implants are easy to care for
You’ll also appreciate the easy care of implants—no soaking in a glass on your nightstand, like dentures. As with natural teeth, hygiene entails brushing twice daily, flossing daily, and visiting our office every six months for routine cleanings and exams.
During these visits, Dr. Cheney examines the health of your gums and natural teeth, along with the condition of your dental implants.
Dental implants have no limit
Dr. Cheney creates personalized treatment plans based on each patient's needs. He may recommend dental implants to replace a single tooth or several.
So if you are missing one or multiple teeth, don’t wait. Contact Dr. Cheney at Fayette Dental Group to schedule a consultation. Call the office at (770) 683-2000 or request an appointment on our website.
