Dental Implants

Dental implants are a reliable option for tooth replacement, providing a permanent solution that both looks and functions naturally whether you are missing one or multiple teeth.

Make Dental Implants Your First Choice

Dental implants are artificial teeth that permanently replace lost, damaged, or decayed natural teeth. They’re fixed to the jawbone and provide a lifetime of durability, just like natural teeth. Dental implants usually consist of three parts: the implant post, the abutment, and the restoration. First, a titanium implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone. Then, the abutment is attached to the post, which serves as an anchor for a custom replacement tooth (the restoration). Our Nashville, TN, practice specializes in implant fabrication, surgery, and final placement.

At Vitality Dental, we understand that each patient is unique. We provide custom-made restorations tailored to your precise measurements and specifications. It takes high skill and experience to produce a comfortable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing restoration. Dr. Holmes is an experienced implant specialist who will work with you personally to ensure that your restorations look great, function flawlessly, and last for decades.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    There are two common types of dental implants: endosteal implants and all-on-4 implants. Endosteal implants are the most popular option, consisting of a titanium metal rod placed into the jawbone and a supporting post that secures a dental crown or a dental bridge. On the other hand, all-on-4 implants are a new type of dental implant system where only four implants support a whole top or bottom denture. Using four implants reduces the possibility of complications from possible implant failure and promotes faster patient recovery.

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    When you lose a tooth, it can be challenging to chew and speak correctly. If left untreated, tooth loss can cause problems such as tooth shifts, jawbone deterioration, facial structure imbalances, and bite problems. These issues typically develop over time when there is no root system to maintain proper bone health and alignment. Therefore, dental implants can offer various benefits by replacing the tooth root, providing a stable foundation for a replacement tooth, maintaining bone density, and improving oral health and function.

  • What is the procedure for dental implants?

    Getting dental implants starts with a consultation and examination by a dentist to determine the ideal location in the mouth for the implant. After the examination, the patient is given a few months to heal before the implant is placed into the bone and covered with a healing cap. It is crucial to schedule regular check-ups with the dentist every six months to ensure proper healing.
