At Brannen & Yarbrough Family Dental Center, our leading dentists, Dr. Jay Yarbrough, and Dr. James Brannen offer personalized dental implant treatment to produce stunning smiles throughout Clarksville and the surrounding communities.
What Are Dental Implants?
Implant dentistry is a rapidly growing field and provides a variety of benefits while addressing the many complications associated with missing or failing teeth. Dental implants are unlike any other tooth replacement solution available because they completely replace the entire structure of a missing tooth, from root to crown.
Dental implants are made of biocompatible titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone in the area where teeth are missing. The body accepts implants through a process called osseointegration where the post fuses with living tissue and bone. This process allows dental implants to serve as artificial tooth roots, providing both essential stimulation for rebuilding jawbone strength and delivering a reliable and secure foundation for your custom-crafted dental prosthetic.
After your initial consultation, our dentists prepare a custom placement plan for you that is determined your existing jaw bone density and the location of your natural teeth. Each implant is strategically placed to achieve the best functional and cosmetic result.
Dental implant posts can be combined with a variety of implant restorations and prosthetics to restore your smile. This permanent placement provides durable support for restorations, including:
- Porcelain crowns: custom individual tooth restorations that look like natural teeth and are nearly as strong.
- Partials: replace teeth absent in a line, or sporadically missing to fill all your gaps.
- Overdentures: restore whole rows of teeth, both upper and lower arches. These dentures won’t fall out and don’t require any special maintenance.
