Dental Implants in Greensboro

Dental implants fill gaps from missing teeth. If you've lost a tooth to gum disease, tooth decay, or dental trauma in the Greensboro area, you may be feeling self-conscious and reluctant to smile or even speak. A gap in your mouth can affect your speech, chewing ability, jaw alignment, and even the shape of your face. Unfortunately, many people believe their only missing tooth treatment options are bridges or dentures: "false teeth." While those treatments may be appropriate in certain cases, dental implants — artificial tooth roots — are an excellent solution for anchoring dental prostheses such as single replacement tooth or a dental bridge.

Tooth Implants are Permanent, Durable, and Effective

In fact, Tooth implants are one of the most durable and effective ways to fix missing teeth. They have at least a 90 percent success rate, and the results are permanent. With dental implants, small titanium metal posts are surgically placed into your jawbone, where they fuse with your jawbone, serving as the roots for replacement teeth. While bridgework or dentures often slip, make noise, and cause bone damage, dental implants are as permanent as your natural teeth. And there's more good news: dental implants don't damage neighboring teeth like traditional bridgework does, since implants don't require support from neighboring teeth.

Keys to artificial tooth root replacement success include healthy gums and an adequate bone structure to support the implant. Dental implants may not be for you if you are a smoker, suffer from diabetes or other medical conditions, or don't have sufficient jaw bone density to accommodate the implants. Other dental prostheses may be necessary to solve your tooth problems.

Dental implants may be the way to help you regain your self-confident smile!
