There is a great push in society to keep things as natural as possible. All-natural foods, all-natural juice, organic vegetables, preservative-free, non-GMO, etc are extremely popular. At New Albany Implants, we are very pleased to offer a very natural solution to a missing tooth! The dental implant is actually one of the most body-friendly dental solutions available to you!
Alternative to Implants
Alternatives to implants require extra hardware and plastic pieces in your mouth at all times. Dentures and bridges can be a hassle and frankly don’t feel very natural. These solutions cause your mouth to lose bone density and change the shape of your mouth and face. A dental implant, on the other hand, will look, feel, and perform just like a natural tooth. That’s because of the small titanium post that holds everything together.
When you lose a tooth, you lose the tooth root. This gives a signal to the jaw bone that it is no longer necessary to hold the tooth root, therefore, the jaw bone begins to diminish. Dentures and dental bridges do nothing to prevent this from happening, but a dental implant does. A dental implant is secured directly into the jaw bone. Over time, the bone bonds to the titanium post which creates a false tooth root. We place a secure crown on top of the implant, and you would never know your tooth was gone in the first place!
Ok, so a titanium post in the jaw bone isn’t “natural”, but it will feel, look, and function naturally. Dental solutions just don’t get any better than that! Contact us today to find out how you can get the best solution for your dental woes! We look forward to seeing you soon!
