Did you know, dental implants can restore a lost tooth? If you find yourself in need of a dental implant and you’re not sure if they are right for you, our staff here at Huthwaite & Huthwaite, D.M.D., PC in Gainesville, Georgia, is happy to work with you to find the right course of treatment for you.

Dental implants can also be used to support dentures, and other reasons that your dentist, Dr. Lance W. Huthwaite, can explain during your visit. One benefit of dental implants is that they can be matched to blend in with your surrounding teeth, so your dental implant won’t be noticeable.

Dental implants are surgically placed inside your jaw. The reason for this is because your implant acts as the root of your tooth, and a root is needed to keep your new tooth strong. Another reason for implanting the truth is to preserve the bone that supports it. If you go too long without a tooth, you could suffer from bone loss, which can be prevented with the implant; and can help your jaw can remain healthy and strong.

If you still have some questions about dental implants or you are wondering if they are right for you, please call us today at 770-536-8868 to make an appointment. Our professional and caring dental staff are eager to assist you with any oral health concerns in any way we can, so you can keep your smile healthy for years to come.
