Dr. Chris Arnold places dental implants at our practice serving West Tennessee which are located in Jackson, Brownsville, and Bells.
DR. CHRIS ARNOLD: Dental implants are titanium posts that replace missing teeth. Dental implants are an excellent restorative option for people missing teeth. The results from them can vary tremendously, based upon the need for them. We have many people whose function is restored tremendously with dental implants helping provide stability for removable dentures or anywhere to helping someone be able to chew better with just a single missing tooth.
The process for getting a dental implant can vary greatly from the need that you have. It can be anywhere from a couple of months to several months, basically it's several small appointments that involve placing the implant and then eventually restoring it.
I take a special interest in dental implants because they offer such a variety of restorative options for patients. You can tremendously improve someone's quality of life by providing them stability in order to chew, function, improve their speech and not only their smiles, but just their overall comfort in life. By giving them a dental implant, it provides so many different things other than just a dental implant.
