With more than 178 American adults missing at least one permanent tooth, Atlanta, GA general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. J.D. Murray, is encouraging his patients to consider the many health benefits that dental implants can provide beyond just improved appearance. For those with missing permanent teeth, dental implants have proven to preserve jawbone and the health of surrounding permanent teeth, prevent gum recession, as well as improve digestion and diet.
“Most patients view dental implants as just a solution to an aesthetic problem of missing permanent teeth,” said Dr. Murray. “However, the reality is that dental implants provide a host of health benefits for patients, whether they only receive one permanent implant or enough to replace their entire smile.”
Dental implants are the latest technology available for reconstructive dentistry. Prior to the wide availability of dental implants, adult patients with missing permanent teeth had to rely on dentures, partial dentures, or bridges to conceal the void of their missing teeth. While these options help to improve appearance, they still do not restore full biting force or help preserve bone and gum tissue.
With dental implants, however, patients can once again enjoy full biting force of their teeth, and do not have any dietary restrictions because of their artificial oral appliances. Dental implants are so strong that patients can eat virtually any food, which helps improve their health as well as their digestion by adopting better chewing practices.
The dental implant itself is a small metal screw that is surgically installed in the jawbone where the permanent tooth once was. This small screw acts as the natural tooth root once did, allowing the hard tissues of the jawbone to bond to it, helping the bone remain active and viable. Having the implant and the attached artificial crown in place can also help preserve the gum line as well.
In addition to providing dental implants, Dr. Murray and his associate, Dr. William Alexander, offer a variety of other cosmetic services as well. Dr. Murray is a certified Inviaslign dentist to provide patients with a better, more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional braces. He is also a trained sedation dentist for patients who may have apprehension or fear about their dental visits.
Dr. Murray has been practicing dentistry in Atlanta for more than 30 years and is one of the most renowned professionals in the local area. He received his DDS degree from Howard University in Washington, DC and soon after served in the U.S. Army Dental Corps for three years. In addition to being a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Murray has also received certification in orthodontics and has participated in numerous continuing dental education courses to ensure that his patients receive the latest procedures and technology at his practice. Dr. Murray is actively involved in giving back to the community, and has received a Certificate of Excellence as well as a Community Excellence Award. He is a member of several professional dental organizations, including the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentists, the American Dental Association, and more.
