Dental implants are one of the most popular ways to replace missing or severely damaged teeth. Most people are good candidates for implants, and you can call our office today to schedule a consultation with our experienced dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Ryu, to learn more about dental implants in Memphis, Tennessee.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are used to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. A titanium implant post is surgically embedded in your jaw to support the implant restoration. After the necessary healing time, during which the implant post integrates with your jawbone, we cap the post with a custom-made implant restoration, which can be a dental bridge or crown, depending on your needs.
Do I Qualify for Dental Implants?
If you are missing teeth, you qualify for dental implants. However, if you struggle with a dental condition such as tooth decay or periodontal disease, you may require additional treatment before receiving dental implants.
What Are the Benefits of Receiving Dental Implants?
Dental implants are permanent, stable replacements that look like your natural teeth, and they allow you to chew, smile and speak easily. Dental implants also help maintain good oral health, as the bone tissue around a missing tooth can deteriorate and negatively impact the health of the surrounding teeth.
How Long Will My Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants are designed to last for a lifetime with the proper care, including brushing, flossing and regular visits to our office to see Dr. Ryu. However, if the restoration is broken or worn out, you may require a replacement.
If you wish to schedule a consultation with our dentist, contact us at 901-767-3950 today. Dr. Ryu will be able to examine your mouth to see if dental implants are a good choice to help you reclaim your smile and will create a personalized treatment plan for you.
