Close the Gaps In Your Smile
What does your smile say about you? If missing teeth aren't disclosing the truth about you, dental implants can help you regain your confidence and your dental health! At Brilliant Smiles Dental in Peachtree City, GA, Dr. James Reid Roberts offers dental implants as a way to help his patients restore their smiles. The questions you may about these incredible restorations are answered here!
How do dental implants work?
A dental implant starts as a tiny metal screw, which your Peachtree City dentist will embed in your jawbone during a procedure at Brilliant Smiles Dental. This is a minor dental surgery that offers major results: the jawbone will fix the post in place, allowing Dr. Roberts to attach the abutment and crown, which finishes off your implant. Crowns are made from a ceramic material that is meticulously painted, shined and shaped to look like a natural tooth and blend in with the rest of your smile.
Why should I choose dental implants?
There are many ways to replace missing teeth, but all dental restorations typically have a shelf life of a decade or less before they'll need replacement. Dental implants, however, are designed to last many years because of the unique way that their anchoring post actually becomes part of your jawbone, replicating a natural tooth's root system. This also means that unlike full and partial dentures, you don't have to remove your dental implants to scrub them for a nightly cleaning ritual. In fact, as your Peachtree Dentist will show you, dental implants are made to be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth in order to keep the gum tissue surrounding them healthy and clean. With proper care, including regular checkups at Brilliant Smiles Dental, your dental implants can last a lifetime.
