Dr. Christopher Port

Dental Implants

Arden, North Carolina area patients who have experienced the loss of natural teeth are often worried about what they are facing when it comes to replacement. Replacing teeth as soon as possible is highly recommended by Dr. Christopher Port of the Asheville Smile Center. This is because other problems could occur without the tooth in place. The existing teeth may shift, resulting in gaps between the teeth within the dental arch. Additionally, patients may notice that they have difficulty eating or speaking properly. One of the most embarrassing aspects is the appearance of the smile when teeth are missing. By restoring the smile quickly, patients can reduce the likelihood of these issues and enjoy improved self-confidence.

Dr. Christopher Port has been offering dental bridges and dentures for years, but is proud to announce the addition of dental implants. They are titanium posts that are biocompatible with the body and can be inserted into the jawbone. These implants act as tooth roots. They are solidified into the bone through the process of osseointegration, making them strong and sturdy. The implants can be restored in a number of ways. A dental bridge may be anchored by an implant, or the implant can stabilize full dentures. The most common way of using a dental implant is to replace a single tooth, during which the implant is restored with a dental crown.

Most patients with sufficient bone are proper candidates for dental implants. They are highly desirable for patients who want a permanent, no-fuss way of replacing lost teeth. These restorations are commonly known for lasting a lifetime with regular dental visits and proper hygiene.
