If you’ve experienced tooth loss due to decay, periodontal disease, traumatic injury or for any other reason, you may benefit from tooth replacement with dental implants. Dental implants are the most advanced approach to recreating the look, feel and function of natural teeth. At the office of Perry L. Jeffries, DDS and Associates, PA, we provide high quality care for tooth loss using state-of-the-art technology and treatment methods. Our goal is to give you the healthy, beautiful smile that you deserve.
Tooth loss can have a significant impact on your ability to enjoy life and perform important daily functions. Simple pleasures, such as eating, speaking and smiling, can feel like challenging tasks. Your self-image may suffer and cause you to hold back in social and professional settings. Dental implants can replace missing teeth to give you a smile that is attractive, functional and complete. In addition to improving your appearance and self-image, implants also address the oral and overall health complications of tooth loss.
Typically, when a tooth is lost or extracted, the bone supporting the tooth begins to deteriorate, and continues to do so over time. Bone loss affects the contours of your face and can compromise the remaining teeth in your jaw. Implants are the only method of tooth replacement that preserve the jawbone by acting as an artificial root that stimulates bone growth. The implant is made of biocompatible materials that fuse with your jaw to support a dental prosthetic. An individual implant can support an individual crown, just as your natural tooth root supports your natural tooth. Implants can also be used to support fixed dental bridges and removable dentures.
