Hello and welcome to our online home. We hope to see you in person sometime soon. That’s because there is so much that we can do for you even if you don’t feel much like smiling. If you an adult living without a complete set of teeth, then we can help! At Alabama Family Dental, we think that your best bet for treating tooth loss is with a dental implant procedure. The right candidates for dental implant surgery are patients who are in good health with a jawbone thick and tall enough to support the implant. But we’ll help you figure it all out when you come in for your consultation. So, keep reading, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your appointment with Dr. Whatley right away!
Without Teeth, You Won’t Feel Much Like Smiling
This is a systematic problem that impacts every aspect of your life. If you don’t have all your teeth, you won’t be able to consume all the fiber-rich foods that keep you healthy. Trust us, that won’t be a very sustainable model. Before long, you won’t feel much like your old self.
Plus, tooth loss changes your appearance, and not for the better. For starters, your cheeks will eventually collapse, making you look much older than you are. What’s more, the empty slots where your teeth used to be will be hard to miss any time you open your mouth to eat, speak, laugh, etc. None of that will be very much fun. But with our dental implant procedure, you can greatly improve your health AND your looks in just two easy steps.
Dental Implants 101
Here’s what you need to know: our dental implants are artificial substitutes for your natural teeth. They are surgically inserted into your jawbone right here in our Mobile, AL office.
Initially, a titanium post will be inserted into your jaw. This post, which actually looks more like a screw, will create a sturdy foundation for a prosthetic tooth (a dental crown) that will be attached a few months later, after the post has fused with your jawbone.
Once the crown is attached, you will quickly regain the majority of your biting force so you can once again eat healthier menu items.
Not unlike a cosmetic dentistry solution, our dental implants will match the look and feel of your natural teeth and can flesh out your collapsed facial structure, making you appear vibrant and young again. And, get this: studies suggest that they will actually add years to your life, with proper care. We’ll tell you how to maximize the benefits when you stop by our office to learn more.
