Are you missing some or all of your natural teeth? Periodontal (gum) disease, injury, cavities, and hypodontia (teeth which never erupted) are all possible reasons for missing teeth. One of the most incredible innovations in dentistry over the years has been the advent of dental implants. If you are looking for a natural and permanent solution for tooth loss replacement which will keep your jaw healthy and dense, Knoxville dentist, Dr. Jim Erpenbach can provide you with dental implants.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Having a titanium rod implanted into your jawbone may sound a little wild. However, dental implants are made to be biocompatible, so your body will accept them as if they were a natural part of your anatomy. One of the biggest advantages of dental implants is that your body views them as teeth roots, so it will continue sending nutrients to the part of your mouth where the tooth is missing. No other tooth replacement does this. If jawbone density is a concern to you, dental implants are the way to go.

More Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants allow you to forgo replacements such as dental bridges and dentures. While bridges and dentures are certainly great methods of tooth replacement, they have their drawbacks. They can lead to wear and tear, on healthy teeth and don’t help your jawbone structure remain healthy. All tooth replacements are important as place holders for keeping your existing teeth from drifting to the missing tooth space. Dental implants do this and much more by providing a strong porcelain crown attached to an even stronger titanium root replacement. You won’t have to commit to any special cleaning methods or products, and you won’t ever need to worry about a dental implant slipping out of place. Brush and floss with dental implants just like you would your natural teeth.
