Here at West Cobb Dental Designs, Inc., we are proud to offer dental implants to our patients.
Our goal as a Marietta dental office is …to give our patients smiles which they can be proud of. If you have missing teeth, you may need dental implants. We don’t want you to suffer from a smile that embarrasses you.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Besides appearance, dental implants are needed for good dental health. Food, plaque, and bacteria will build up in open spaces from missing teeth. This can cause difficulty in keeping your teeth clean, and may put you at a higher risk to develop cavities and other dental infections.
Dental implants have many additional benefits. They feel like your own teeth, and make eating much easier. Many people find that their speech also improves as an added benefit.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are used to replace the roots of your teeth. They act as roots (and a base) for permanent teeth that will be placed later. Without implants, your artificial teeth will be weak, and you may end up losing them.
When done correctly and cared for properly, dental implants can last a patient’s whole life. It is still important to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash with implants. It is also important to maintain routine dental checkups to ensure your mouth is still healthy.
