For most people, it can be a very disturbing and psychologically traumatic experience to deal with to lose a tooth as an adult or to go through life with several missing teeth. Fortunately, with advancements in the dental industry, there are several teeth replacement options that can solve these problems and allow you to recover any confidence that has been lost due to those terrible oral problems. Dental implants are among the top procedures recommended for tooth replacements. Dr. James R. Pace Sr. provides several dental implant choices at Belle Meade Family Dentistry to help you recover your perfect smile.

What is it 

Dental implants are comprised of a titanium screw that is surgically implanted between the jawbone and a crown-like tooth above the screw. The titanium screws serve as a post to mimic the original root of the tooth, forming a structurally sound connection between the two overtime, fusing the jawbone to the post. The crown implants were made to look exactly like a natural tooth, they are very robust so that you can enjoy the same stuff that you would like to do with your original teeth, such as cold foods, crunchy foods, or even hard to chew foods.

Things to remember when caring for your implants

Even if your dental implants are robust and designed in such a way that they function the same way as your original teeth, you should still look after them as if they are your real teeth. After every meal, you can brush and floss your implants as much as you can to make sure that they don't get contaminated with damage to your gums.
