Dental Implants in Auburn Alabama
Living with missing teeth can lead to poor chewing function and a decreased quality of life. At Bent Creek Dental, we are able to restore chewing function with dental implants. A dental implant is a titanium fixture to replace the root of a failing tooth. After appropriate healing, approximately 3 months, we are able to attach a crown on to the implant that matches your other teeth. With a dental implant, you are able to floss in between all of your teeth and we do not have to crown the adjacent teeth as we would with a bridge. Often, dental implants are the best replacement option for missing teeth. Call us today or book an appointment online to schedule your evaluation!
More than 36 million Americans are living without teeth. Often times, due to complications with the patient anatomy, dentures are loose and make speech and chewing difficult. With dental implants, we can convert conventional dentures to snap in dentures, preventing dentures from floating during function. Dr. Mathis can further evaluate how to improve your denture function.
