Dental Implants in Knoxville
A Stable & Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth
At Family Dentistry of Knoxville, Dr. Jason A. Phillips can help you benefit from this highly effective area of modern dentistry. Dental implants are a versatile treatment that can be used for everything from implant crowns to replace a single missing tooth to implant supported dentures for a full arch of missing teeth. We offer restorations for dental implants in Knoxville to help you find a permanent solution for missing teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
If you need to replace one or more missing teeth and don’t want to deal with denture slippage or denture adhesives, you may want to consider dental implants. After your implants are placed and allowed to heal, restorations are attached to the implants for replacement teeth that look and feel like your own natural teeth.
Dental implants offer advantages that include:
- No limit on the foods you can enjoy
- Implants last a lifetime, which saves money in the long run
- Restored function
- An appearance that looks completely natural
- Reduced bone loss
Our highly talented dentist offers restorations after another dentist places your dental implants in Knoxville for missing teeth. We can provide the information you need to make an educated decision about whether to pursue dental implants or another method for replacing your missing teeth and restoring the function and beauty of your smile.
Implant Supported Crowns & Dentures
Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth with dental implant crowns. If you have many missing teeth or a full arch of missing teeth, implants can be used to hold bridges or dentures in place. Implant supported dentures or bridges are attached to dental implants that are permanently placed in your jawbone. The implant is surgically placed and allowed to heal. As it heals, the implant fuses to the jawbone to provide a stable base for your replacement teeth.
Your dentures or bridges will be custom made to ensure a comfortable fit. After your implants have healed and your new replacement teeth are ready, you will return to our office to have your new teeth attached to the implants. During follow up visits and regular checkups, we will monitor your oral health and ensure that everything is functioning as it should.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
Unfortunately, every patient is not a good candidate for dental implants. The best candidates for dental implants have good oral health and general health. You will need to have adequate bone in the jaw to support the implant and healthy gum tissue that is free of periodontal disease. If you have other oral health problems, we will address those first before deciding about dental implants.
If you are a good candidate for crowns, bridges, or dentures retained by dental implants in Knoxville, it can be a worthwhile investment. Dental implant restorations are more affordable than ever, and financing options are available. We offer affordable monthly payments with our convenient financing, so you can make your replacement teeth work with your budget.
