Are you dealing with tooth loss? Losing a tooth is challenging enough because your goal was to preserve it for as long as possible. But then you also have to deal with discomfort when you eat and speak and the blow to your confidence in your appearance.
At Cook Family Dental, our goal is to provide you treatments that we tailor to fit your oral health needs, budget, and lifestyle. In this way, we can be sure that every patient at our Birmingham dental office receives the high-quality dentistry they want and deserve.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are considered to be the gold standard for replacing a tooth because they closely resemble the structure of a natural tooth. Implants are unique because, unlike other tooth replacement options, they are placed directly in your jaw.
Dr. Cook places the tiny titanium post in your jaw and allows it time to heal. Titanium is a remarkable material that integrates securely with surrounding bone tissue.
When this process is complete, a crown will be attached to replace a single missing tooth. If we’re treating multiple missing teeth, we will use a bridge or dentures. We fasten the restoration securely to the implant which creates an entirely stable and functional replacement tooth.
Is the Procedure Painful?
Dr. Cook has many hours of specialized training in placing dental implants. Using this expertise and extensive experience, he can complete the entire procedure at our Birmingham dental office in just one to two hours.
In some cases, we can place your implant and restoration the same day. When the procedure is finished, you can leave our Birmingham dental office showing off your beautiful healthy new smile. The procedure requires only local anesthesia, but we also offer oral sedation if needed.
At Cook Family Dental, your complete comfort is our top priority. Our caring professional team has performed many implant procedures, and we will be with you every step of the way to encourage and support you.
With every treatment we provide, our goal is to welcome you warmly to our office and make you feel like family every time you visit. We are dedicated dental professionals who offer a warm and friendly environment where we can help you achieve excellent oral health.
Dr. Cook will take the time to talk to you and explain various treatments so that you can make informed decisions about your dental care. At our office, you really are in control of managing your own oral health!
