The Many Benefits of Dental Implants Make Them the Optimal Restorative Treatment
During your consultation with Dr. Sutton, he will discuss the many benefits of dental implants at his Newport, TN, practice. These benefits include an improved appearance, greater functionality, and overall better health that is associated with an implant procedure.
Implants Are Like Your Real Teeth!
We can replace a single missing tooth with a dental implant and the implants will look and function just like your real teeth! The titanium implant is designed with a dental crown that looks like a real tooth and the post will stimulate the jaw bone just like the root of a natural tooth. Implants do not require additional maintenance and are a permanent tooth replacement option for missing teeth in adults. In some cases, the implant can be part of a treatment plan that involves implant supported dentures.

Dental Implants in Newport and East Tennessee for Single and Multiple Missing Teeth
Many adults will lose their teeth because of periodontal disease, tooth decay, or other oral health issues. They will need some type of tooth replacement with Dr. David Sutton that may involve dental implants, implant bridges, or implant supported dentures to replace single or multiple missing teeth.
Replacing a Single Tooth with Implants
A single missing tooth can be replaced with a dental implant. The titanium post of the implant functions just like the root of the tooth and the crown looks like your surrounding teeth! Implants do not require additional maintenance beyond regular cleaning and checkup appointments along with proper daily home care.
Replacing Multiple Missing Teeth
Individual dental implants may be necessary for replacing multiple missing teeth. In these situations, a single dental implant would be placed in each area where a tooth is missing.
In other cases, a dental implant bridge may be a better option for replacing multiple missing teeth. Dental implants would be used to anchor the dental bridge where several adjacent teeth are missing. You may also be a candidate for implant supported dentures if you have lost an entire arch of teeth.
Dental implants are extremely versatile and can be used to replace a single or even all of your missing teeth.
