Benefits of the dental implant procedure for Charleston, SC area patients
Restoring the smile following tooth loss and extraction may be overwhelming for some patients. There are a variety of options available to individuals out there when it comes to repairing the smile and restoring function following tooth loss. Dr. Andrew Greenberg and his team of professionals in Charleston, SC encourage patients to take the time to discuss treatment solutions available, including the benefits of specific procedures such as the placement of dental implants.
Understanding how dental implants work
Dental implants are just one of several tooth restoration solutions available at Mouth Carolina Dentistry. Dr. Andrew Greenberg and his team describe dental implants as adequate tooth root replacements made with a metal called titanium. Titanium is used for many different implants for the entire body because it is biocompatible, long-lasting, and effective at repairing the body. The dental implants used in our practice appear as small screws or posts that are placed into the jawbone. During oral surgery, the dentist will place the implant and suture the soft tissues. While the area heals, the implant stimulates bone growth to the point where the bone of the jaw will wrap around the implant and stabilize it in place. This is what gives the dental implant the stability and durability it requires. The implant itself is then restored with a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on the patient’s unique situation.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Many patients choose dental implants because they are incredibly advantageous, especially when compared to alternatives. Dental implants are:
- A wise investment
- Easy to care for
