Why Dental Implants?
Missing teeth can make it impossible to enjoy your favorite foods or smile with confidence. You deserve a smile you can feel proud of and a full set of healthy, functional teeth! Dental implants are the gold standard of care for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Holmes and our team at Vitality Dental here in Nashville, TN can completely rebuild your smile with full mouth dental implants if needed. Whether you’re missing one, several, or all your teeth, you’ll be able to chew and bite comfortably with dental implants that last!
Your Path to the Superior Solution for Missing Teeth
Replacing teeth with dental implants happens in stages, usually over the course of a few months. To begin the process, Dr. Holmes will make a thorough evaluation of your case to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. The good news is that implants work well for most patients with missing teeth! In some cases, a small bone graft or other alteration may need to happen before your implant is placed. Once everything is ready, your journey to new teeth can begin! Dental implants are placed in three parts: a post; an abutment; and a crown. First, a post (the part of the implant that will replace the root of your tooth) is surgically placed in the bone. We have plenty of options available to ensure your complete comfort during surgery. Be sure to ask us about sedation options! Most patients report minimal discomfort during surgery, which usually takes around 1 to 3 hours, and throughout healing. After your surgery, the post will be given time to integrate into the bone tissue. Once it is fully healed, we will be able to attach the crown (the visible, top part of a tooth) using an abutment (the connection between post and crown). Whether you need just one tooth replaced, or you’re in the market for full mouth dental implants, this versatile permanent solution requires the precision of a skilled implant dentist and advanced surgical technology to optimize the outcomes of your treatment and its long-term success. With our expertise, we can help you experience a life of health, function, and confidence with affordable dental implants in Nashville, TN!
Dental Implant Options to Suit All Needs
Dental implants are a great option for a variety of conditions. An implant can replace a single missing tooth or support a dental bridge to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Implants can also increase the stability of a modified denture, which snaps securely to the implants placed in the jawbone. For patients missing many or all of their teeth, full mouth dental implants can permanently support a full, fixed bridge of artificial teeth. This solution makes it possible to eat any type of food with life-like, strong teeth. In all cases, dental implants improve your ability to eat comfortably, feel confident in a complete smile, and live an overall healthier and better quality of life.
