Save Your Teeth and Jaw Bone with a Dental Implant

Dental implants are quickly becoming the most preferred way to permanently restore missing teeth. The great thing about dental implants is that you can restore one missing tooth or several missing teeth while they still look and function like your other natural teeth. No one will ever know they are not your own! Dr. Kit Robinson can provide his patients with a dental implant in Hahira, GA.

When a tooth is lost, the surrounding jawbone immediately starts to deteriorate without the stimulation of the root. Once your jawbone is lost, it does not grow back on its own. This deterioration will cause surrounding teeth to shift and tilt, compromising your chewing ability and possibly leading to those teeth to be lost as well.

Traditional methods of replacing missing teeth, like dental bridges and partials, require adjacent teeth to be reshaped by filing down healthy tooth enamel to accommodate the restoration. Dentures and partials are also removable and can easily slip out when eating and talking. Your diet will have to be modified to accommodate your new limited chewing ability. Removable appliances eventually loosen due to bone loss and painfully rub against the ridges of your jaw bone. You will most likely need regular maintenance and replacement of these restorations which can end up being more expensive in the long run.
