Chattanooga Dental Arts - Chattanooga, TN

Dental Implants

Today, there are several effective options available for patients who are struggling with the loss of one or more natural teeth. Here at Chattanooga Dental Arts, we believe there’s one that stands out above the rest – dental implants. Implants are virtually seamless in feel, function, and appearance when compared to your natural teeth, and they can also be used to anchor dentures and bridges in place for a healthier and more confident fit. If you’d like to learn more about this transformative procedure or schedule your first appointment, please don’t hesitate to give our Chattanooga, TN office a call!

Dental Implant Placement

The secret behind the success of dental implants is simple – unlike other services, implants recreate both the root and the crown of your natural tooth instead of only the latter. With a new tooth root in place, your jawbone is stabilized and preserved, and patients are much less likely to experience deterioration over time. After our team has determined that you’re a good candidate for dental implants, the first step of the procedure involves their surgical placement within the jaw. Dr. Jancy Parkerson-McGovern and Dr. Daniel McGovern provide this service in-house and will ensure that this portion of your care is as comfortable and successful as possible.

Once the implant is in place, a process known as osseointegration begins. This means that your natural tissue will gradually start to grow around the implant and create a strong bond with it. This sets the stage for the placement of a new, custom-made restoration once you’ve healed enough to return to our office.

Dental Implant Restoration

Our doctors offer multiple implant restorations, and our recommendation will depend on the number of teeth/implants that require coverage, as well as the patient’s personal needs and preferences. For instance, all-ceramic dental crowns are designed to cover individual implants so that surrounding natural teeth can remain healthy and unaltered. For multiple implants, an implant-retained denture/bridge may be ideal, which can replicate several teeth at once for a more cost-effective solution. No matter what the patient’s final choice is, their new restoration will be an excellent match for the tooth/teeth they lost.

With your new dental implant(s) in place, it’s likely that your diet, your speech, and even your self-confidence will improve as a result. We look forward to helping you regain the complete and beautiful smile you deserve!

Dental Implant FAQs

The number of dental implants you will need depends on your specific situation. Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, our team will tailor a treatment plan that best fits your needs.

The long-term success of your new smile relies on a healthy foundation. As a result, you cannot get dental implants if you have an active infection, but that does not mean you cannot get them later on. You will first need periodontal therapy to stop the infection. Depending on the extent of the damage caused by the bacteria, you may need additional procedures before placing your implant posts, such as bone grafting or tooth extractions.

Initially, dental implants are more expensive upfront than other treatments, but they are more affordable long-term. They can last forever, so you never need to worry about paying to have them replaced. They can also lower your overall dental expenses. Since the posts stimulate your jawbone, any remaining teeth will have the support they need to stay in place. Stopping dental drift decreases your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss to prevent the need for costly treatments.

We understand that cost is a significant factor for many patients considering dental implants. Our office offers several financing options to help make this investment in your smile as affordable as possible. We can discuss these options with you during your consultation to find a plan that works for you.
