Dental Implants

Are you considering a dental implant for your dental treatment? Dental implants allow function and great aesthetic results. Carolina Dentistry @ The StateLine has the knowledge and skills needed for the results you are looking for in dental implants.

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants replace the root or roots of a tooth. Made from titanium, they are lightweight and bicompatible. The implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone. These implants allow a crown, bridge or denture to be secured.

These implants bring function, support the cheeks and lips while giving the appearance of a natural smile. It is best to have them placed soon after loss of a tooth. When a tooth is lost some of the natural bone surrounding it is lost as well. Relatively fast placement of a dental implant helps to ensure minimal loss of surrounding bone.

The success rate of these implants is very high. The high success rate can be attributed to the development of the implant itself along with making sure you are a candidate to receive this type of dental treatment. Your dental provider will make sure you have enough bone for the implant along with careful review of your medical and dental history.

These implants can bring function and aesthetics to your smile. Schedule your consult today to find out more information.
