When should Knoxville, TN patients consider dental implants?
Tooth loss can be detrimental to a patient’s appearance and their self-confidence. It can also greatly affect an individual’s chewing and biting efficiency, and can cause existing natural teeth to shift out of place. This “domino effect” can occur in even the healthiest of smiles after a natural tooth has been extracted or lost. Addressing the space from tooth loss is essential to maintaining a beautiful and fully functional smile. This is why Dr. Foncea often recommends that patients consider the use of dental implants. Knoxville, TN residents can come to Sequoyah Dental Arts for all of their general and cosmetic dentistry needs, as well as the placement and restoration of dental implants.
Knoxville, TN practice, Sequoyah Dental Arts, believes in helping patients maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. Dental implants are used to restore smiles after tooth loss, either as a false tooth restoration or in conjunction with the use of complete cosmetic dentures. Both are effective ways to rejuvenate a smile and benefit the patient in maintaining full functionality.
Although there are alternatives to dental implants, such as dentures and bridges, many patients enjoy the amazing benefits dental implants can provide. Dental implants are stand-alone restorative treatments that allow patients to address a lost tooth without affecting the others in their smile. Dental bridges require that enamel be removed from the adjacent teeth for placement. Additionally, dental implants are permanent restorations, while dentures are removable and bridges need to be replaced regularly even with proper maintenance.
Dr. Foncea offers a number of cosmetic restorative treatments, but he is a firm believer in the value of dental implants. Placed and restored, they are beautiful, strong, and function as natural teeth would. When used for the placement of dentures, patients can enjoy a stronger, sturdier bite than ever before experienced with suction or dental adhesives.
If you are considering dental implants for tooth replacement, call Dr. Foncea and the team at Sequoyah Dental Arts today to learn the amazing benefits and advantages of using dental implants over other restorative techniques. You may find that dental implants provide you the strength, durability, and beauty that you deserve and desire for your smile!
