Do you want to restore your smile and also ward off bone loss in your jaw? Dental implants are the only solution that can do it all.
While other options restore your smile, implants are the only solution that can also maintain your jaw, avoiding future dental issues.
Learn how the dentists at Cosmetic Dentistry of Knoxville, TN, can restore the beauty and function of your smile with dental implants.
Why Replace Missing Teeth? It's Not Just Vanity
Each tooth helps support its neighbor. If even just one is missing, the empty tooth socket can deteriorate from bone loss and allow neighboring teeth to shift into the gap. This can cause misalignment and crooked teeth.
As tooth loss causes teeth to shift, they may no longer mesh neatly together. This may cause uneven biting forces and wear on teeth.
If you are missing a lot of teeth, a shrinking jawbone can cause the skin on your face to sag and your facial features to appear sunken, making you appear older than you are.
More Tooth Loss
As your jawbone degenerates, it begins to weaken and shrink. As the bone recedes you may lose more teeth, which would require more extensive dental work.

Dr. Bailey Was Relentless in Finding the Solution
Doctors Bailey and Sliger have proven to be one of the best health-care choices our family has ever made ... Here’s an example: A family member’s relatively new dental implant — itself the result of tooth and bone loss from poorly-executed orthodontic treatment — had loosened, causing pain and MORE bone loss. The dentist who had installed the implant was out of ideas. We went to Dr. Bailey, who took time from her office schedule to go and meet with the maker of the dental implant. Together they studied the X-rays and deduced that the wrong mounts had been used to install the implant ... Doctor Bailey made the effort, got to the bottom of the problem, and arrested the bone damage. The implant has been secure and trouble-free for years now.Read the Entire Review

What Exactly Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small post, often made out of titanium, that replaces the root of a missing tooth. Titanium is typically used in dental implants because it is biocompatible, which means it is not harmful to living tissue and does not produce an immunological response.
The dental implant is inserted into the jaw, where it fuses with the bone and will function as a tooth root. A connector piece called an abutment is attached so the implant can support a restoration.
Your restoration can be anything from a crown for a single tooth, which needs only one implant, to a full denture, which typically uses four or more implants.
