More than 36 million American adults have no teeth, and 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth. It’s nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about. If you have lost teeth to dental decay, gum disease, a traumatic injury, or simple wear and tear, it’s time to schedule a consultation with a dentist to explore your options for getting one or more dental implants. No one will notice the difference between your real teeth and your implants.
The well-being of your teeth and mouth affects how you live and enjoy your life. We at the office of Perry L. Jeffries, DDS and Associates, PA understand this and are here for you and your whole family. Think of us as the gatekeepers of your dental health. We listen to your needs and collaborate with you to help your teeth and gums stay healthy and attractive.
Thanks to amazing advances in prosthetic dentistry, implants closely match the appearance, sensation and purpose of your own teeth. An anchor made out of biocompatible materials is inserted into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. During the healing process, the bone fuses with the implant, which creates a stable anchoring point for the placement of a crown, bridge or overdenture. The anchor acts in much the same way as the roots of natural teeth.
With a 98 percent success rate (the highest of any implanted surgical device), dental implants offer an effective treatment for missing teeth. While the field of prosthetic dentistry offers many great solutions for treating an incomplete smile, dental implants are one of the most popular and highly effective options in care.
