Having a single implant is the best way to replace a tooth. It feels the most natural and has the best longevity. It’s going to last for years.

Chattanooga Periodontics and Dental Implants invites patients to experience the long-term benefits of dental implants in Chattanooga, TN. Dr. Charles Felts and Dr. Elizabeth Felts Randall ensure candidacy for implants through bone grafting.
Patients with missing teeth will eventually experience jawbone resorption. This loss of bone shape and density occurs because teeth are no longer present to stimulate the natural bone. Over time, the bone shrinks until it is not strong enough to support tooth replacements like dental implants. To create the necessary bone foundation to support dental implants, Drs. Felts and Randall offer bone grafting.
Bone grafting refers to procedures that rebuild proper bone levels in the jaw by adding grafting material to the area of resorption. Specific procedures include a sinus lift that replaces lost bone beneath the sinus cavity and ridge augmentation, which replaces bone along a natural jaw ridge or fills a tooth socket after extraction. Bone can be either from the patient’s own body or from a donor source. When placed at the treatment site and allowed to heal, this bone material and the patient’s existing bone fuse together. After a few months, this rebuilt jawbone will be dense and strong enough to support dental implants.
Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements Drs. Felts and Randall can use to restore one tooth or several missing teeth. They also offer TeethXpress® full arch dental implants to replace an entire mouth of failing or missing teeth. The dental implant posts surgically placed in the jawbone support a dental crown, bridge, denture, or full-arch prosthesis. Once restored, dental implants provide over 98 percent return to dental function while looking and feeling like natural teeth.
“Having a single implant is the best way to replace a tooth. It feels the most natural and has the best longevity. It’s going to last for years,” says Dr. Felts.
