Missing Teeth? You're Not Alone!

Research shows that more than three-quarters of the adult population loses at least one tooth by the time they reach 44 years of age. If you have missing teeth and are exploring tooth replacement options, consider the benefits of dental implants to restore your smile! Permanent tooth replacement procedures like dental implants can improve your smile and offer several other benefits.

Getting Dental Implants in Birmingham, AL

Many dentists recommend dental implants to improve oral health and strengthen the jaw. Partial dentures are designed to rest on the gums and can cause bone deterioration over time. Bridges often require grinding down adjacent teeth and can cause tooth damage. Dental implants are fused directly into the jaw bone and have a very high success rate. They are the preferred option for permanently replacing missing teeth.

Tooth Loss and Implants

Dental implants are made out of a titanium post, a special connector piece called an abutment, and a natural looking implant crown, and fuse directly into the jaw bone providing a very secure fit. They are an attractive option for replacing missing teeth and work just like your natural teeth to stimulate the jaw bone and help prevent bone loss. Dentures and fixed bridges are still used to replace missing teeth but are not without complications. For example, dentures move around easily and can make clicking sounds. They can also irritate the gums and may cause bone loss. Bridges require grinding down adjacent teeth and this can lead to tooth damage and other oral health problems.

If you are in need of a tooth extraction or have missing teeth, it is important to replace them as soon as possible. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Kent in Birmingham, AL today!
