Dentist discusses the cost of dental implants in Asheville
Most of us probably remember losing some teeth as a child. When our new “permanent” teeth came in, many of us were inclined to believe that we’d have those teeth for the rest of our lives. The truth is, almost 2/3 or American adults ages 35-44 are missing at least one tooth. For those who are missing teeth, dental implants are a reliable, comfortable, strong, and natural-looking option to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants can be used if you are missing one or several teeth. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants provide stabilization within the structure of the mouth by replacing the missing tooth root. They can help preserve the jawbone, and restore your ability to eat and speak properly.
Dental implants are made of titanium and surgically placed into the jawbone. After the procedure, the implant fuses with the natural bone, becoming part of its structure.
The implants act just like natural tooth roots. A tooth-colored ceramic restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture is then attached to the implant. The pressure of chewing is absorbed by the jawbone, which helps prevent bone loss.
Dental implants give patients the functionality of natural teeth as well as helping to preserve the health of the jawbone. Dental implants are a healthy and beautiful restoration that can last a lifetime.
Say goodbye to dental adhesives and loose dentures forever. With dental implants, you can have confidence that your teeth will look and feel great. If you would like to find out more about dental implants including the costs and if you qualify as a candidate, call Asheville Smile Center today at (828) 585-4049.
