What are Dental Implants Used For?

Dental implants are a versatile, permanent restoration that can be used for many reasons at Sequoyah Dental Arts of Knoxville. Dental implants can be used to replace a missing tooth, support a dental bridge, and provide support for full, cosmetic dentures.

Replacing a Missing Tooth

Many patients consider dental implants when they are dealing with a missing natural tooth. The gap left from a tooth that has either fallen out or been extracted can be a source of embarrassment for some, and can affect the way a person talks and eats. Replacing the tooth with a dental implant can help create a natural-looking replacement for the original tooth, while keeping the existing teeth from shifting out of place. Dental implants are considered a permanent solution to missing teeth.

Bridge Support

Dental implants are used for patients who have several missing teeth and are considering a dental bridge. Bridges require healthy teeth on each side as an anchor to support them, but in the case of several missing teeth, dental implants can be placed to provide support for a dental bridge.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Poorly fitted dentures can to slide around on the gums, causing irritation and sores. Denture adhesives can be messy, and not always as effective as we’d like in maintaining the proper hold and fit for patients. Dental implants can be placed in various areas of the mouth and used in conjunction with dentures to provide the strength and stability denture wearers desire. Dentures will fit snugly and securely with dental implants, and patients can avoid using denture adhesives and feeling self-conscious about their dentures sliding or slipping out of place at the most inopportune times.

Dr. Foncea of Knoxville’s Sequoyah Dental Arts believes the dental implants are one of the best, most successful dental restorations available today. They are extremely predictable and successful for many, and are long-lasting alternatives to dentures, partials and bridges. During a consultation with Dr. Foncea, you can find out if you are a viable candidate for this cosmetic treatment, and get started providing the best for yourself and your smile!
