Dental ImplantOne of the most pressing cosmetic concerns that patients have is filling in spaces in the smile caused by tooth loss. Just one lost tooth makes patients very reluctant to show their smiles in public. Enjoy a number of benefits when you choose dental implants to replace missing teeth. Find out more about this solution when you visit Art of Dentistry in Danville, VA.

Benefits from Dental Implants
You probably don’t think about your teeth very much in the normal course of the day, but when one or more teeth are missing, that quickly changes. You may find yourself feeling more insecure about smiling around peers and you may experience challenges when trying to eat your favorite foods. Dental implants restore visual appeal and function to your teeth. You can go back to thinking very little about your smile (except for brushing and flossing of course) when you have an implant.

Dental Implantation
Decades ago, scientists learned that when placed inside healthy bone tissue, certain biocompatible materials will bind with the bone through a process called osseointegration. This revelation was adapted for dental science as a way to give patients newly rooted teeth. Dental implantation is a basic surgical procedure that can have long-term positive effects for your smile. You’ll only need to set aside about an hour with your Danville, VA dentist to have the implant inserted and secured in place.

A Difference in Your Smile
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much a dental implant can make a major difference in your smile, both in terms of how it looks with a newly installed crown and how it feels. Your new crown (the part that shows above the gum line) will remain white, glowing and polished-looking for decades. The implant is permanently fixed in the jaw and invisible to others. When a tooth is lost due to dental disease, injury, or extraction, there is always a concern that the other teeth will begin to change alignment. Dental implants resolve that issue as well.
