That's why we're proud to offer a wide range of general, cosmetic, and restorative dental services at our Hixson, TN dental office, and why we strive to make dental care a convenient, relaxed experience. We're passionate about helping our patients achieve great smiles, and dental implants are one of the most effective methods available for replacing lost or damaged teeth.

Using Dental Implants for Replacement Teeth

If a tooth is missing, damaged, or decayed beyond the point of repair, the best way to restore a complete smile is to replace it with an artificial tooth - and dental implants make this process more effective than ever. Dental implants are made from small titanium studs that are inserted into the space where the tooth used to be then capped with an artificial crown, which is then shaped to match your natural teeth. We can color-match and shape the crown to perfectly match your other teeth, giving you a complete, beautiful, and fully-functional smile.

But it's not just aesthetics that make dental implants such an effective treatment. Because the implant is made from titanium, it has the unique property of osseointegration. This means that bone will naturally grow and attach itself to the titanium, literally fusing it to the natural jawbone and providing a strong, supportive base for the artificial tooth. This makes dental implants a better option than dentures or retainer-based fake teeth. With dental implants, bite pressure is disseminated naturally across the jawbone, preventing the bone loss problems that can occur with dentures.

We can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire dental arch, and once the implant is in place, it can last more than 40 years. This means that in the long-run, dental implants provide both a highly effective solution and an overall savings on cost.
