Tooth Implant Dentistry

In many cases, dental implants are the best option for replacing a missing tooth. A dental implant is a specially crafted synthetic tooth root that can take the place of an absent natural root. Dental implants are often the best option for tooth replacement because they provide support that your jawbone needs to stay healthy. After a tooth is lost, the jaw underneath the gumline starts to deteriorate. Dental implants are a fantastic option that can help stop this deterioration and help the jawbone stay healthy.
Implant dentistry has been around for years and has a very high success rate. With modern advances in cosmetic dentistry, your dental implants can look, feel and function just like normal teeth. At our Brentwood Tennessee practice, we can use implants for single tooth replacements and to replace multiple teeth. We can also use implant dentistry to secure dentures and dental bridges.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Your implant will be placed by a surgeon who specializes in dental implant procedures. After a period of healing, we will attach your permanent dental crown to your dental implant. At your implant dentistry restoration appointment in Brentwood, Dr. Wells will place your dental crown, placing the restoration that you may not even be able to visually tell isn’t your natural tooth.

The Benefits of Implant Dentistry

  • HEALTH – Dental implants help keep your mouth and your jawbone healthy, even after you’ve suffered a devastating tooth loss. With a dental implant, you’ll look healthier and feel better.
  • LONG-LASTING – Dental implants are durable and can last a lifetime with proper care.
  • COMFORT – Dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth.
  • FUNCTIONALITY – With a dental implant, you’ll be able to do everything you were able to do before your tooth loss.
  • BEAUTY – Our dental implants and restorations are beautiful, custom-made restorations that perfectly mimic the look of your lost tooth.

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentistry?

Although dental implants are a treatment that is suitable for large swaths of the population, some patients are not candidates. In particular, dental implants should not be used in patients with low bone density or poor health. Although there may be some stipulations, most individuals with the following health concerns may still be candidates for implant dentistry:
  • Bone loss – Loss of bone tissue is common in individuals with missing teeth or periodontal disease. If the jaw’s bone density has declined too much, dental implants can still integrate with the remaining bone. In extreme cases, bone grafting can be used to provide additional support needed for a tooth implant,
  • Existing dental work – Implant dentistry can replace dental bridges so long as they aren’t permanent. Teeth implants can also be used to stabilize dentures.
  • Existing medical conditions – Although our patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure may require additional precautions, most patients able to undergo routine dental care done are candidates for implant placement.
  • Periodontal disease – Implant dentistry has proven successful for many of our patients who have lost teeth due to gum disease.
  • Smoking – Smoking can lower the success rate of implant dentistry. A consultation with Dr. Wells will determine whether a smoker might still be a viable candidate for tooth implants.

While the information above serves as a good guideline for candidacy, we always evaluate patients on a case by case basis. If you are interested in getting dental implants, we meticulously evaluate your health to find out if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

    I love this place! I have had dental issues my entire life, and Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry is by far the best dental facility I’ve ever been to. They … More recently did dental implants for me and did a fantastic job! But, while their technical work is truly the best in town, what sets them apart for me is the kindness and amazing care and concern of everyone who works there. As soon as you step through their door, you are made to feel like you matter. I can’t recommend them enough!

    Words could never truly express our appreciation for Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry. There are no better experts at their craft, than Dr. Wells and Dr. … More Weese. Their reputations are unmatched. They deliver exemplary results, and treat everyone with kindness and individualized attention. The support staff is equally excellent, attentive, and makes sure you have the best experience possible.
    We consider it a huge blessing to have them caring for us.

    Dr Monroe and Ozzy (and prep team Denise and Stephanie) were AMAZING. Dr Monroe was kind, thorough, and he and Ozzy advised me of everything they did before … More they did it. I felt like I was getting a spa treatment as opposed to a dental treatment. I have to say that coming to the dentist is now NOT a scary experience. I highly recommend this ACE team. They’re the very best in Nashville … and they serve up the best post-treatment smoothies!
