When tooth loss occurs, we understand that there are many options available for tooth replacement. Deciding which one is right can be overwhelming. During consultations, we discuss your issues and come up with a solution that meets your needs and desires. For many patients, dental implants are ideal to fully restore functionality and aesthetics to the smile.
Dental implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement because they actually replace the physical tooth root that is missing, which provides unmatched stability. The dental implant is secured into the jawbone, stimulating the bone just as if the natural tooth root was still there. This helps prevent bone deterioration and loss of proper facial structure. It can also improve oral health by preventing remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
The bone will fuse with the implant, creating a stable support for tooth replacement. Depending on the number of teeth missing, a dental prosthetic such as dentures or a crown can be connected via an abutment. The final result is a long term restoration that looks beautiful and functions like natural teeth.
If you are missing one or more teeth, we encourage you to contact us and find out if implants may be the solution for you. Seeking immediate care for tooth loss is important to prevent further damage to your oral health and appearance. We will help find a solution that works for you. Call us at (828) 585-4049 for a consultation.
