Dental Implants

When you have only one tooth missing, you may not want a partial denture or a dental bridge. Another restorative dentistry option is to get a dental implant. Dental implants have appeal because they stand alone and look like your natural teeth. In fact, today’s dental implants look more like natural teeth and they are sturdier and more durable than the first ones that were invented.

When you are considering implants, it is important to consult with a dentist who has experience in this type of procedure. At Southern Dental Group of Munford, we have the experience to provide you with all the information you need to make a wise decision about having an implant.

Your dentist will explain the procedure in full. A thorough exam will be required to ensure that your bone structure will accept the implant. Preliminary work may be required to prepare for it. If this is the case, your dentist will explain what that will entail.

A dental implant is a wonderful option when it comes to replacing a missing tooth. Unlike a partial denture, you do not need to worry about it becoming unseated. You will also not need special devices to clean it, such as you may need with dental bridges. With proper care, your implant will serve you well into the future.

Dental Implant Restorations

There is a very high rate of success for dental implants. They hold up well under most circumstances. However, there are times when an implant may need some repairs. Natural teeth have built-in warning systems that usually signal when there is a problem. Implants do not, so it is important that you maintain your regular visits to the dentist.

Sometimes an implant can develop problems that are not visible to the eye. With our dental equipment, we can detect any issues that may arise with an implant. If, however, you do experience a problem with your implant that you can see or feel, do not hesitate to give us a call. Addressing problems early with implants is just as important as with your natural teeth.

We want your implant to last a long time. That can happen with proper care and monitoring. We are here to help you maintain your implant and your overall oral health. Contact Southern Dental Group today to schedule an appointment and find out if dental implants are right for you.
