Replace your teeth for life with affordable Dental Implants
You might have heard of the saying, “Life is short. Smile while you still have teeth.” But what if you lose part of your teeth? Does that mean you have to live with it? If you are missing some teeth, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a beautiful smile. At Asheville Smile Center in Arden, North Carolina, we offer dental implants to fill the gaps left by missing teeth.
Benefits of dental implants
If you have lost a tooth or two, we advise our patients to consider teeth implants because they offer numerous benefits:
- Implants prevent bone resorption
- Dental implants prevent adjacent teeth from shifting
- They restore your confidence and self-esteem
- Implant-based restorations have a success rate of over 98%
- Dental implants can last for life with proper care
What to expect during a dental implant procedure
Dedication and patience are essential when getting dental implants because it isn’t an overnight restorative treatment. The process starts with a consultation with Dr. Christopher Port. Here, Dr. Port takes you through the procedure and answers any questions you might have.
Next, our dentist physically examines your jawbone and requests x-ray images to determine if you have a healthy jawbone to support an implant. If not, we may suggest bone reconstruction to help you become a candidate for dental implants.
If teeth extraction is required, you have nothing to worry about. We use gentle equipment and techniques to ensure that the tooth removal process is painless. To fill your tooth gap, Dr. Port surgically inserts a biocompatible titanium implant post into your jawbone. It then takes around four to six months for the implant to fuse with the bone through osseointegration. When your jawbone heals, you will come to our dental office to have a crown or bridge installed.
While the dental implant procedure may take several months, don’t let this discourage you. Each stage is critical in ensuring you get a replacement almost similar to your natural teeth.
