A Permanent, Natural Looking Solution
Nashville Periodontal Group offers implant dentistry to patients with missing teeth. Today, patients no longer have to worry about dental bridges or dentures, but those who are candidates can now receive a long term tooth replacement option.
Dental implants are comprised of three separate parts that all come together to create a replica to your natural teeth. First, the titanium implant is inserted into the jaw bone. Titanium is a material that naturally fuses with the jaw bone, which is what makes it so successful. Next, the abutment remains above gum line, and a crown is placed on top of it to give it the appearance of your natural tooth.
Dental implants are versatile, and they can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. Out of all tooth replacement options, implants have the highest success rate, and can last a lifetime if patients care for them properly with daily brushing and flossing. Over time, the crown may need to be replaced, but other than that the implants remain structurally sound.
Patients who are concerned about the cost of dental implants should know that Nashville Periodontal Group will work with you to find financing options to cover the dental implant cost. Although dental implant prices are traditionally higher than dentures or dental bridges, implants require less repair and replacement, so over time the overall cost is lower.
