Dental implants are regularly used for restorative dentistry when a patient has a missing tooth or needs a replacement for multiple missing teeth. With dental implants, you will not have to worry about fixing them or replacing them as they are made to last a lifetime with proper care. The best thing about dental implants is they typically have a 98% success rate. To find out if you need dental implants, contact Devine Dentistry to schedule a consultation, and we will talk about how dental implants can restore your smile.

Here are five signs that you may need dental implants

  1. When you have a missing tooth

It can be embarrassing to smile when you are missing a tooth, resulting in low self-confidence. With dental implants, you can fill the gap between your teeth, so it looks natural and complete when you smile. Since it will resemble the same color and the same shape as your other teeth, it will not look fake or out of place like economy dentures.

  1. When you have dentures or partials

Loose dentures and partials are a very common occurrence. With dental implants, you will not have to worry about your dentures out when eating or talking, saving you embarrassment. Ask us about implant dentures for a comfortable and secure fit.

  1. When your tooth needs to be pulled due to an infection

When a tooth becomes infected, contact Devine Dentistry immediately to schedule an appointment to address the situation. Depending on the level of damage to the tooth, it may need to be extracted or removed if a root canal will not repair it. Once the infected tooth is removed, and after the bone heals for a period, a strong and durable dental implant will replace it, closing the gap between your teeth.

  1. When you have a “sunken-in” appearance

Often with dentures, the patient can have a “sunken-in” appearance when the dentures are removed. Although dentures are an alternative to dental implants, the jawbone will not be stimulated to regrow tissue and will continue to deteriorate over time. With dental implants, there is no worry about a “sunken-in” appearance. Since the implants permanently replace your teeth, look like your teeth, and perform like natural teeth, you can maintain a normal appearance with a beautiful, healthy smile.

  1. When you decide you are tired of having or caring for your dentures

The daily care needs and messy adhesives for dentures can become overwhelming for someone with a busy schedule. So, to make life easier and care for your teeth normally, dental implants with custom-made dentures may be the way to go. As a permanent fix for missing teeth, dental implants can help bring back your smile without fear of your dentures falling out in the middle of dinner or taking a photo.

These are several instances where dental implants are the best decision to give you a dazzling smile. To find out more about dental implants or to see if you are a candidate, just call our office at (615) 269-4209. We welcome patients of Belle Meade, Green Hills, and Nashville.
