ATLANTA, GA, January 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Patients who might find themselves avoiding some of their favorite foods due to improper fitting dentures or missing teeth have a new reason to smile-dental implants in Atlanta from Dr. Thomas Kauffman. When a patient loses a tooth or multiple teeth, bone loss can occur if proper treatment is not provided. Over time, a toothless jaw that is battered by a denture can also lead to substantial bone loss. Like teeth, dental implants help to conserve the jawbone, preventing bone loss. Dental implants are proven to be an ideal treatment to restoring the look and feel of a natural beautiful smile.
"Both esthetic and functional, dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that allow you to, talk, laugh and eat without difficulties. Some reasons for choosing dental implants for your smile restoration include an improved appearance, bone preservation and more. Whether you need to replace a single tooth or support dentures, dental implants are a proven treatment for restoring smiles when teeth are missing," said Atlanta, GA dentist, Dr. Thomas Kauffman.
Implants are so well designed that they maintain the ability to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, making dental implants the ideal solution to replacing missing teeth. When teeth are healthy, the root of the tooth transmits chewing forces to the jaw bones, allowing the mouth to perform basic functions of chewing and eating without discomfort. The tooth remains stable and generally unchanged while chewing. If one or more teeth are missing, these forces no longer are effective, potentially causing the jawbone to begin disintegrating.
Dr. Kauffman explains to his patients in Atlanta that dental implants may help prevent this gradual bone deterioration, since the implant replaces the natural tooth root. Unlike dental bridges, implants do not affect neighboring healthy teeth. Instead, the dental implant replaces the missing tooth root and neighboring teeth remain completely intact.
Patients should consult Atlanta dentist, Dr. Thomas Kauffman if he or she is missing some or all of their teeth. Dental implants are not for everyone, but with proper consultation with Dr. Kauffman in Atlanta, GA, an appropriate treatment plan will be created for each individual patient. Missing teeth can be a thing of the past with proper dental hygiene, and dental implants in Atlanta.
