For the past several years, dental implant treatment has been gaining popularity by leaps and bounds. Unlike previous forms of tooth replacement, implants are designed to replicate the natural oral anatomy, right down to the roots of teeth. By addressing missing roots with affordable dental implants, your dentist in Greensboro restores the best possible function. When teeth are replaced with implants, speaking, eating, laughing, and more can be performed with comfort and confidence, which is what we believe our patients deserve.
As important as the restoration of natural oral function is the preservation of natural bone tissue that comes from dental implant treatment. When only teeth are replaced with bridgework or dentures, there remains no stimulation for bone tissue in the jaw. Without this stimulation, bone will gradually break down, affecting the entire facial aesthetic.
Choosing the best option for tooth replacement takes consideration of several factors, including short and long term goals and the care required for restorations.
The implant procedure is quite simple and is performed with a great amount of precision. We are focused on patient comfort and are happy to report that our patients tend to remain very comfortable during and after the insertion of dental implants. In the days right after treatment, the gums may feel a little sore and swollen. With over the counter medication, these side effects can be easily managed. For several weeks, implants are gaining support through the fusion of bone tissue around each implant post. As implants are becoming more stable, some people like to eat softer foods that are easily chewed.
One of the best things about dental implants is that they look and feel like natural teeth. Additionally, they require essentially the same type of care. The main idea behind caring for implants is caring for gums. Like natural teeth, implants rely on healthy gum tissue for support. As well, like natural teeth, implants can be lost if gum disease is not treated and the jawbone begins to break down.
We believe in providing outstanding care. When patients choose implants for tooth replacement, we see them through the entire process and well beyond, demonstrating proper hygiene techniques and continually monitoring gum health.
