Free Implant Evaluations

One of the most traumatic experiences our patients go through is losing a tooth. Having to face an extraction brings up a number of questions and concerns. How will it affect my smile? How can I replace my tooth? What is the best option for my lifestyle?

At Mark Tickle, DMD, Family, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry, we do everything possible to keep your natural teeth healthy, but sometimes an extraction becomes necessary to protect your health. In those cases, we can help you plan ahead so that you have a tooth-replacement option right from the start. This will give you peace of mind when it comes to your treatment. Dr. Tickle proudly offers a no cost implant consultation to see if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Dental Implant Placement and Restoration

Dentists agree that dental implants are the best and most convenient tooth-replacement options available today because they most closely mimic your natural teeth.

Dr. Mark Tickle surgically places and restores dental implants right here in our Tuscaloosa, AL dental office. Our patients really appreciate the convenience of not having to go to a specialist for surgery. Because Dr. Tickle completed the Implant Dentistry Continuum, a rigorous and prestigious dental implant course, and is a member of the International Dental Implant Association, you will receive the best care and outstanding results.

In some cases, you could have your extraction and implant placement on the same day, eliminating the need for an additional surgery. Dr. Mark Tickle will evaluate your unique needs and provide you with all of your treatment options.

Once your dental implant has sufficient time to heal, we will create a custom implant crown to complete your smile. We design each crown individually to match our patients’ natural teeth and smiles. To everyone who sees your smile, your crown will look just like one of your natural teeth!

How Dental Implants Benefit Your Health

Aside from the aesthetic advantages of dental implants, they also have a number of health benefits that will protect the integrity of your smile and your bite.

Dental implants act as a placeholder and keep your natural teeth from drifting toward the gap in your smile. This protects your occlusion (bite) and keeps your natural teeth in their original location.

Additionally, dental implants prevent the bone loss that commonly occurs with tooth loss. Your teeth and bone have a dependent relationship. When you lose teeth, your bone is no longer needed to stabilize your root and begins to resorb. Bone loss creates a number of problems with your dentistry and may even cause you to lose more teeth. When you choose dental implants, you are making an excellent choice for your health as well as your smile!

Implant-Retained Dentures

If you have poorly fitting dentures, you are not alone. Many denture patients have difficulty finding dentures that fit properly due to changes in their bone structure. We offer implant-retained dentures to provide our patients with the added security they need to eat and speak confidently.

Strategically placed dental implants provide an anchor for your denture, allowing for a better fit and more comfortable wear. If you suffer from ill-fitting dentures, we can help!
