You're not alone! Did you know that 69% of adults between the ages of 35-44 have lost one or more of their permanent teeth?
Dental implants are the favored tooth replacement option among more patients today because they most closely resemble natural teeth. Nothing looks or functions quite as well as dental implants with Dr. Miller and Dr. Bounds.
Conventional dentures and bridges are losing their appeal because for most patients they can be uncomfortable to wear, difficult to keep in place, noisy, unreliable, conspicuous, and damaging to existing teeth and bone. Dental implants are a versatile option that patients can depend on for years. They can be used to seamlessly fill the space between two teeth after a tooth extraction or for a complete mouth reconstruction that looks completely natural.
Implants also provide important health benefits. Unlike dentures, which rest on top of the gums and contribute to bone loss, dental implants are rooted in the jaw bone in the same manner as real tooth roots. This is an important distinction, as tooth roots are responsible for engaging the bone and keeping it fit. Implant posts are also made with a nonirritating titanium material that is naturally decay resistant and purposely designed to integrate seamlessly with the jaw bone (a process called osseointegration) for a tight, lasting fit. Dental implant crowns also look remarkably authentic for a smile that truly looks and feels like your own.
