A Permanent Solution for Damaged Teeth
If you need to replace any of your teeth, our dental implants in Mobile, AL, and the Semmes, West Mobile, and Theodore, AL, areas are a great option. At Alabama Family Dental, Dr. Whatley can use dental implants to replace all your teeth or fill in the gaps of just a few missing teeth. Thanks to today’s advanced technology, getting dental implants is a pain-free procedure with minimal discomfort during recovery.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a permanent replacement for your damaged or missing tooth. We surgically position a steel “tooth root” into the jawbone below the gumline. Once your implant heals and securely fuses to the jawbone, we create a natural-looking crown as a cap. Your new tooth will look, feel, and function just like your natural tooth.
Benefits of a Dental Implant
Go ahead and bite into an apple or corn on the cob! Permanent dental implants are as strong as real teeth — no adhesive or soaking is necessary. You brush and floss just like you would with your original teeth. And, unlike a denture or bridge, a dental implant does not require the support of the surrounding teeth.
Procedure & Aftercare
After your implant is placed, it will fully fuse with your jawbone as the bone around the implant heals. Every case is unique, and each patient has a different experience with their procedure and healing process. We can advise you more on the process during your consultation and answer any questions you may have about dental implants.
