Tooth loss interferes with your diet, your speaking voice, your emotional well-being, and can even lead to further oral health issues down the line. At Twickenham Family Dentistry, we offer quality dental implants in Huntsville, AL to help you live your best life.
Dental Implant Restorations in Huntsville, AL
With dental implants, you can enjoy permanent new teeth that have the potential to last for the rest of your life. Each prosthetic root is made from titanium, a material that has been used for decades in surgical joint replacement and is highly biocompatible. This artificial root encourages new bone growth throughout the jaw, anchoring it more firmly into place than even the healthiest of teeth. This means you don’t have to worry about an aged or sunken appearance in your lower face.
The process starts with your implant post—a thin screw made of strong titanium. This post is implanted in your jawbone and integrates over a period of months to replace your missing tooth root. When bonding is complete, you’re ready for your quality tooth replacement. Additionally, a few strategically placed implant posts are strong enough to support an entire arch of restoration teeth on a denture or a bridge!
The benefits of implant-supported dentures in Huntsville include:
- No denture slippage
- No denture adhesives
- Reduced bone loss
- No denture realigns
Dental Implant Options We Offer
If wearing a traditional removable denture isn’t for you, then you’ll love the idea of one that is retained by dental implants! These full mouth prostheses can be screwed directly to the abutment so that they never slip out of place. Plus, they’re slim in size and shape, making it easier for you to talk and chew your favorite foods.
If you want to replace several teeth at one time, an extended dental bridge can be supported on each end by a strong implant root. It’s not uncommon for us to replace up to four teeth in a row at one time.
An independent implant with a porcelain crown is the closest thing to replacing a single missing tooth. It looks and feels just like the real thing!
Although Dr. Cook does not surgically place the implants in our Huntsville dental office, we work closely with an oral surgeon who does. Once your implants are placed, you return to our office to have the fixed restoration secured on top.
