A missing tooth is no light matter. Losing a tooth can cause undue strain on the integrity and spacing of surrounding teeth. Perhaps just as important to so many of our patients is the anxiety and embarrassment that is often associated with missing teeth.
With a missing tooth, both your bite and your smile are compromised. And while bridges and dentures an do much for temporarily improving the negative affects of missing teeth, these are not solutions that work for many people, or for very long.
Those looking for a truly long-lasting and natural-looking replacement for a missing tooth need look no farther than dental implants, which replace the entirety of a missing tooth, from root to crown. Once the implant root is put in place, a complete, custom-made porcelain tooth is installed to it, providing an incredibly strong, , versatile, and long-lasting tooth replacement. You can chew with them, you can floss with them, you can smile with them, and they will never decay.
In our Piedmont dental practice, dental implant candidates are given a thorough 3-dimensional imaging of the site where a dental implant is to be placed. This allows for a more precise, easier, more comfortable, and more accurate placement of the implant later.
Placing the dental implant is a minor surgical procedure done from the comfort of our dental chairs. Once the implant is placed and healed, the new porcelain tooth is made to order and installed in a simple office appointment. It is an extremely easy and comfortable process.
