Dental Implants

No doubt, a missing tooth can negatively impact your image, but did you know it also compromises your oral health? When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth shift, destroying the integrity of your bite. Your jawbone also deteriorates at a more rapid rate, beginning almost as soon as you lose a tooth.

Do missing teeth hurt your smile, ask Dr. Tony Ratliff about restoring your missing teeth with dental implants. A dental implant consists of a small titanium screw that is placed into the jawbone during a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Your body accepts the metal alloy in the dental implant so well that the bone integrates with the screw to create an anchor that simulates a natural tooth root. When your surgery has healed, you will return to have a crown placed over the implant. The crown will blend with your existing dentition flawlessly, and no one will know you have an implant – unless you tell them.

Dr. Ratliff has been placing dental implants in Noblesville and Fishers for 12 years and these are an ideal option for people who have lost a tooth or multiple teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.  Missing teeth pose a serious risk to your oral health. Don’t delay in calling Stony Creek Dentistry in Noblesville to set up your dental implant consultation today.
