Benefits of choosing dental implants in Richmond

Dr. Martin, of Richmond Smile Center, has been creating flawless smiles with dental implants for nearly three decades. He is a Diplomat of the American Board of Oral Implantology, and widely recognized for his exceptional skills. This procedure is becoming an increasingly popular solution to missing teeth for several reasons.


Dental implants provide a permanent solution to missing teeth. Unlike most appliances, which need to be replaced after a period of years, implants can last a lifetime. They replace your natural teeth, in function as well as form. Because they are implanted in the bone, they are extremely stable. The crown (false tooth) attached to the implant is just as hard as a natural tooth. You can eat what you want, without fear of your teeth slipping or falling out. They are fixed, sparing you the inconvenience of removing an appliance while you sleep, or for cleaning. There is no special care required, and never any messy adhesive.


Some restorations leave gaps or pockets, which can be difficult to clean, promoting tooth decay and gum disease. Some require the alteration of healthy teeth. Dental implants avoid these problems, as well as preserving bone health.

Natural teeth are supported by roots, attached to the jawbone. These roots are essential for bone health. Without roots to stimulate density, bone begins to deteriorate. Any dental appliance or restoration placed entirely above the gum line only replaces the teeth, not the roots. Our implants are made of titanium, one of the few materials known to form a bond with bone tissue. They serve the same purpose as natural roots, encouraging the formation of new bone cells.


Missing teeth can add years to your appearance, and cause embarrassment in social situations. The effect on your self-esteem, relationships, and lifestyle can be dramatic. You may hesitate to smile, avoid dating, and refuse to eat out.

Dental implants can restore your smile like no other procedure. The crown (false tooth) is sized, shaped, and colored exactly like a natural tooth. Because they will not slip or fall out, no one will be able to tell they are not your real teeth. By preventing bone loss, you can avoid the receding jaw line, which causes accelerated aging in many denture wearers.
