Why should I get a dental implant?
At Dr. Reagan Grizzle’s office, we do everything possible to prevent tooth loss. Sometimes, even the best care cannot prevent a tooth from requiring an extraction. We understand you want to know all of your options when it comes to tooth replacement and Dr. Grizzle will go over the treatment that will work best for you.
One of the best ways to replace a missing tooth is with a dental implant. Dental implants are most like your natural teeth. They look natural, function like a real tooth, and help to prevent bone loss.
Dental implants are custom made to match your natural teeth. The size, shape, and color of your implant crown will be chosen specifically for you. Because our implant crowns look so natural, no one will ever know you have an implant.
Dental implants become stable because they work with your bone. That stability means they will not only fill in the gap in your teeth, but also provide a chewing surface.
One of the most important benefits of dental implants is that they help to preserve your bone. When you lose a tooth, the bone begins to deteriorate. A dental implant anchors your bone and may slow or prevent bone loss.
