We begin this post from Thompson & Frey Cosmetic and Family Dentistry with a quote from classic literature: “Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond.”
When Miguel de Cervantes wrote that four hundred years ago, there was no widely accepted way to replace lost teeth. We are fortunate to live at a time where there is a permanent, cutting-edge replacement for missing teeth: dental implants.
A dental implant is a titanium post anchored to the jaw bone. One implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a full dental arch.
Because the titanium post actually fuses with the bone, it is a rock-solid base for the replacement teeth it supports.
With a dental implant, you can talk, chew, and brush like normal. Eat that steak. Laugh out loud. Sing at the top of your lungs!
Dental implants from Thompson & Frey Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Owensboro are among our restorative dentistry procedures. Patients come to our office from Philpot, Tell City, IN, and Hartford. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
