Dental Implants in Greenville - Pelham Links Family and Cosmetic Dentistry
Patients faced with missing teeth should consider dental implants. Dental Implants offer a secure and healthier alternative to dentures. They will give patients both the beauty and functionality of your smile back when faced with lost or extracted teeth. Always committed to providing top-notch care, our Greenville implant dentist, Dr. Hudson will share his passion for this procedure with you.
Reasons for Choosing a Dental Implant
Dental implants are recommended for those needing to replace teeth that can't be saved because of cracks, decay, breaks, or severe wear. They also provide a permanent fix when adult teeth are knocked out or have fallen out. For some patients, implants are a replacement for older dental work, such as a fixed bridge. Whatever method, missing teeth need to be replaced as without a replacement tooth to fill the gap, your existing teeth are likely to shift out of otherwise good alignment. You might also have trouble chewing or talking, and missing teeth that go without replacement contribute to problems with bone loss and periodontal disease that can cause additional tooth loss.
Our Greenville Dentist feel that dental implants are the ideal solution for gaps in your smile, as they:
• Are more stable than most alternatives, as they fuse directly with your jawbone
• Stimulate bone density, which prevents shrinkage that negatively affects your bite and facial appearance
• Don’t require filing down adjacent teeth
• Are natural in appearance, blending seamlessly with your smile
About the Procedure
During implant surgery our Greenville implant dentists place a small titanium post in the jaw, at the site of the missing tooth. After gum tissues heal and the post stabilizes in your jaw, an abutment is placed on top to house your custom-made crown or fixed denture (should you be choosing implant supported dentures). Most of our patients can return to work the same day however, as with most dental procedures, it’s nice to take the rest of the day off when possible.
The Pelham Links Experience
To help you decide if a dental implant is the right option for you, we first complete a consultation exam. Our dental implant experts will make sure your bone is healthy enough to receive the implant and that you don't have any conditions that might need attention prior to the surgical procedure. We'll use our state-of-the-art imaging equipment to map out your treatment plan and take impressions of your teeth to make sure you get the best placement, fit, and aesthetic result possible. At all points in this process, you remain in complete control and make the final decisions for the restorative dental treatment option that will work best for you.
