How dental implants from your Roswell dentist can give you back your smile
Have you lost teeth? Does your smile look incomplete? Do you want to restore your smile? If you answered yes to these questions, it’s time for you to discover the most modern, state-of-the-art method of tooth replacement available. It’s called dental implants! Dr. Wyman Martin at The Martin Dental Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA wants to introduce you to the benefits of dental implants.
Your dental implant procedure begins with the implant screw which is placed in your jaw by a specialist during a simple in-office procedure. It will function as the “root” of your missing tooth. Over time, your body will grow bone to fuse with the implant and secure it in place. After the implant area has fully healed, a beautiful new implant crown will be placed on top of a custom abutment which is screwed into the implant by your Roswell dentist, and you will have a new tooth.
If you are missing more than a single tooth, you can also choose multiple implant crowns, or a cosmetically beautiful bridge or denture which is supported by implants. The implants help to retain bone which might otherwise be lost due to the pressure of a dental appliance resting on your jaw.
When you choose to restore your smile with dental implants, you can count on:
- A beautiful crown which will look like your natural teeth.
- Improved chewing ability because dental implants are stable and won’t move around when you eat.
- A healthier mouth because you can brush and floss dental implants just like your natural teeth.
When you choose dental implants, you can be assured of successful results. In fact, dental implants boast a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
You deserve a complete smile, so why not restore your smile with dental implants? For more information about dental implants and other dental services call Dr. Martin at The Martin Dental Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA today!
New York University states the National Institute of Health has awarded a two year grant of nearly $450,000 to researchers at New York University College of Dentistry's Bluestone Center for Clinical Research "to develop biomarkers for tongue cancer", which is a subset of oral cancer. They hope to learn how to diagnose aggressive cancers earlier, modulate the microbiome, and prevent or at least slow the oral cancer progression, per Donna Albertson, PHD. Hopefully, this research will lead to the development of new, targeted therapies for these cancers.
