Advanced Dental Implants in Birmingham, AL
If you are missing a tooth, having an empty space in your smile can damage more than your confidence alone. Our jawbones actually deteriorate over time when teeth are missing. This bone loss not only contributes to a gaunt or aged look but also puts us at risk for shifting teeth, tooth decay, and further loss of surrounding teeth.
Dental implants halt bone loss, providing the foundation for artificial teeth that perform much better than dentures. These small titanium posts actually bond with your jawbone, acting just like your tooth roots once did. Once the bond is complete, your cosmetic dentist can place the artificial replacement teeth—and you can feel confident with a smile that looks and feels natural.
At Gonzalez, Carr & Maniscalco, our advanced dental implant technology allows us to perform single-stage implants, saving many patients the inconvenience of undergoing two separate procedures. In some situations, we can even place dental implants while extracting a tooth for the most seamless recovery and reconstruction process possible.
