Implant treatment from your Kennesaw dentist can preserve bone health

When you lose a tooth, your first thought is likely to be about the unsightly gap in your smile. You might also worry about the effect it will have on your speech, and whether you will still be able to enjoy your favorite foods. These are valid concerns, all of which can be improved or corrected by a variety of different tooth replacement options. However, tooth loss has another destructive side effect that you might not be aware of – bone deterioration. Dental implant treatment can help keep your jawbone healthy as well as restoring your smile.

Why tooth loss causes bone loss

There is more to a tooth than meets the eye. Below the gum line, hidden from sight, are the roots. They extend to the jawbone, holding teeth in place and keeping them stable. When you bite down, the pressure on teeth is transferred to the jawbone, via roots and periodontal ligaments. This stimulation triggers healthy cell regeneration within the bone.

What happens when you lose a tooth or several teeth?
  • The bone in that area is deprived of stimulation from tooth roots.
  • Like a muscle that is never used, it becomes weak and begins to deteriorate.
  • There is an average 25 percent reduction in the bone width within 12 months of losing teeth.
  • Within the next few years, the bone height decreases by an average of four millimeters.
Traditional dentures and bridgework don't help the bone, because they don't replace the root. In fact, implants are the only treatment that does replace tooth roots.

How implants protect your smile

Implant treatment is designed to replicate the anatomy and functionality of a natural tooth. An implant is similar in size and shape to a natural tooth root. It is placed in the jawbone, providing a solid foundation for restorations. Specially designed crowns, bridges, or dentures may be attached to implants. Biting force is transferred from the restorations to the implants and then the bone, just like a tooth. Most importantly, the body responds just as it does to a natural tooth. Bone tissue fuses with the implant, and healthy cell regeneration continues.

In addition to keeping your jawbone strong and healthy, dental implant treatment allows you to eat what you like, speak clearly, and smile with confidence. If you are missing one or more teeth, call 32 Dental at (770) 423-1132 and schedule a consultation at our Kennesaw office to find out if implants are right for you.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
