Implants Promote Overall Jaw Health
Implants Help Preserve Bone in the Jaw
Traditional procedures pose risks of complications, whereas implants promote overall oral and jaw health. The presence of natural teeth or implants helps to preserve the jaw bone. An extracted or lost tooth can cause the bone to weaken or erode. Once placed, successful implants provide stability and work to maintain jaw health just as natural teeth do.

Why Choose Implants?

There are many reasons why choosing dental implants is a good treatment option for missing teeth. These reasons include:

  • Beautiful, natural looking smile
  • Bone preservation
  • Enjoy the foods you love
  • Speak with confidence
  • Preserve the adjoining teeth
  • A more comfortable smile

Dental Implants after a Tooth Extraction in Augusta, GA

If you are planning a tooth extraction in the Augusta, GA region, you may want to think about filling in the space that will be left behind afterwards. Many patients choose dental implants with Dr. Ben Timmerman because of the numerous and unique benefits they provide.

Choosing Dental Implants after a Tooth Extraction Makes Sense:
• Preserve bone density and strength in the jaw
• Maintain the smile’s natural appearance
• Keeps existing teeth properly aligned and functioning
• Continue to eat and speak without worry

Dental Implants Replace Missing Teeth Most Effectively

When teeth are lost, the jaw bone becomes weaker and eventually disintegrates because the roots are no longer there to engage it. The degree and speed of bone loss is different for everyone but it does occur, which is why we recommend replacing teeth after extraction surgery as soon as possible. Although conventional appliances for missing teeth can address gaps and other issues, they cannot stop bone loss the way dental implants do. Dental implants replace missing tooth roots right in the jaw bone, while others operate on the gum line, allowing bone to wither and facial muscles to lose their natural support.

Traditional methods can also be damaging to existing teeth and have a higher failure rate compared to dental implants, which are supported by many years of strong scientific research and countless positive outcomes among those who have them. If you are preparing for a tooth extraction, consider a dental implant procedure as well. Waiting too long may increase the need for a bone grafting procedure prior to implantation.

Dental Implant Structure

The post: The post of a dental implant is what Dr. Timmerman will place in the jaw to mimic your missing tooth root. This piece is made of titanium, a nonirritant metal that resists decay and fuses well with the natural bone in your jaw. The post is also the piece that connects your jaw to the abutment.

The abutment: The abutment is the middle piece that connects the implant post to the implant crown.

The crown: This is the third segment of the dental implant, which looks and functions exactly like an authentic tooth. Crowns are designed to blend flawlessly with the rest of your natural teeth so nobody will know except you!
