Dental Implants

Whether you have lost one or more teeth, you may be struggling with pain, a limited ability to chew, and impacted speech.

The Gold Standard for Tooth Replacement

Long Lasting

Your dental implants can last 40 years or even a lifetime with proper care and dental hygiene. However, your restoration will need to be replaced about every 10 years or so.

Prevent Jawbone Atrophy

If restorative treatment is delayed for too long, jawbone tissue begins to recede. Fortunately, dental implants can act as tooth roots, halting this process and preserving the strength of the jaw.

Increased Stability

Traditional dentures can easily slip out of place when eating or speaking. Implant-supported dentures, on the other hand, remain firmly in place and increase the strength of your bite.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that replace lost tooth roots. At our office in downtown Chattanooga, our dentists can surgically place implants through your gums and into your jawbone. Over time, the implants will fuse with the bone and become a permanent part of your anatomy. Then, we can attach a lifelike dental restoration to the implants, completing your smile.

Before and After Dental Implants

Teeth before dental implants
Before Implants — This patient had a missing tooth that created an obvious gap in her smile and made it difficult to bite, chew, and speak.
Teeth after dental implants
After Implants — Dr. Damien F. Armstrong was able to replace her missing tooth by attaching a natural-looking crown to a dental implant.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

Simple tasks like eating, speaking, and smiling can be a daily struggle if you suffer from extensive tooth loss.

If you are looking for a better solution than removable dentures, Dr. Damien Armstrong offers All-on-4® dental implants.

All-on-4 is a sophisticated dental implant placement technique that maximizes the support from existing jawbone tissue. Instead of placing six or more implants straight down into the jaw, Dr. Armstrong secures your entire restoration with only four implants. Two of the implants are placed at strategic angles in the jaw to maximize contact with the remaining bone tissue. The resulting All-on-4 denture will function and feel just like your natural teeth.

The Advantages of All-on-4 Dentures

Patients missing most or all of their teeth have more treatment options than ever before. Rather than settling for removable dentures, consider the advantages of dental implants:

Maximum Stability

Implants anchor your prosthetic teeth to your jawbone, keeping your restoration securely in place at all times. Treatment allows you to eat all of your favorite chewy and crunchy foods once again and speak with perfect clarity.

Better Dental Health

Missing teeth over a long period of time can lead to serious dental health conditions. Implants are the only treatment that replaces your missing tooth roots, stimulating your oral tissues and preventing bone recession.

Youthful Appearance

Dental implants not only give you a full, healthy-looking smile but help you maintain a youthful appearance. They preserve your bone density so you do not develop the sunken facial structures often seen in patients with tooth loss.

Implant supported Dentures

Traditional dentures are a great restorative solution for some patients, but they will typically require adjustments to maintain a comfortable fit. Additionally, they are secured using dental adhesives, so they can often shift out of place.

For patients seeking the most stable and comfortable prostheses available, we offer implant-supported dentures at our Chattanooga, TN, practice. This type of prosthesis is attached to titanium posts that are embedded within the jawbone for unrivaled security. Dr. Damien Armstrong works with implant patients to develop effective and individually tailored treatment plans.
