Dental Implant Restorations
Are you a candidate for a dental implant?
Dr. DeShazer and Dr. Leverton provide dental implant restorations for patients in the Pell City area for replacement of missing teeth. Together with dental surgical specialists such as periodontists and oral surgeons, they help their patients regain lost chewing function and smile confidence with dental implants.
A dental implant replaces a missing tooth with a restorative attachment for a crown, bridge or an implant denture. Dental implants have become a standard treatment option in dentistry.
Patients with a single missing tooth may be offered the option of a dental implant and implant crown vs. a dental bridge to help preserve natural tooth structure. Patients with loose complete or partial dentures should consider securing their denture with a set of dental implants for a snug fit and improved chewing ability.
Pell City dentists Dr. DeShazer and Dr. Leverton consider dental implants whenever possible in replacement of missing teeth.
Aren't dental implants expensive?
Some patients are concerned about the cost of dental implants, however, adult tooth loss can lead to a pattern of dental problems. Missing teeth leave ‘gaps’ in the bite, causing other teeth to gradually shift into the empty space. In some situations, this can lead to further tooth loss, bone loss or damage to remaining existing teeth. The subsequent costs of not replacing missing teeth can add up substantially, making dental implants extremely affordable in comparison.
Is dental implant surgery painful?
Even though it is considered dental surgery, placement of dental implants is a routine procedure for our dental specialists. They will consult with you and talk about sedation options and post-operative care to help make the process as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
