August Is Dental Implant Month!

Dental Implants can be an excellent solution for patients who are missing teeth. Dental implants can help restore your function to eat, chew, and speak comfortably. Lexington dentist Dr. Doyle Freano offers dental implants in his office to give patients a durable, natural looking option for their missing teeth.

Dental Implants are an innovative addition to the dentistry world. Affordable dental implants can be used to secure dental bridges, crowns, and dentures, providing a stable foundation for your missing teeth replacement option. Dental implants are small titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jaw bone. Restorative dentist Dr. Freano requires patients to have strong jaw bone to be a good candidate for dental implants, so during your consultation, she will thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw bone to determine if dental implants are right for you.

Affordable Dental Implants

Dr. Freano is an experienced dentist, committed to providing patients with complete, comprehensive dental treatments. Patients can lose teeth due to gum disease, trauma, poor oral hygiene, and tooth decay. It is imperative that patients find a tooth replacement option as soon as possible because missing teeth can cause patients to feel less confident in their smile, have difficulties eating and chewing, and may result in further bone loss in the jaw.

Some patients may use denture or dental bridges as replacement options, which can be an excellent option for some patients. For others, dental bridges and dentures don’t give them the durability and natural look they desire. Dental implants preserve the jaw bone, aren’t prone to decay, and look and function like your regular teeth. Dental implants allow patients to function normally and helps restore the confidence they once had in their smile.
