If you’ve lost natural teeth, you know the dramatic impact that it has on your appearance, comfort, and quality of life. You may find it painful or difficult to chew certain foods, and speaking clearly is a challenge.
There are other oral health risks, too, such as the increased risk of cavities and infections. That is why Dr. Avrit always recommends replaces missing teeth to support a healthy, comfortable quality of life.
We offer several tooth replacement options for patients in the Franklin and Nashville TN areas, with the most long-lasting and comprehensive being dental implants.
How Dental Implants Work
A dental implant is a titanium post that Dr. Avrit places surgically into the area of a missing tooth. After the bone is given time to heal around the implant, we may then place a crown, bridge, or denture on top of the implant.
Dental implants offer other benefits, too; they’re not susceptible to tooth decay, and we don’t have to alter adjacent teeth to replace a missing tooth. A dental implant is also an alternative to a bridge or partial removable denture and can also stabilize a complete denture for ultimate stability.
