Dental implants are quickly becoming one of the most popular solutions for missing teeth. If you have a missing tooth or you are looking into having a decaying tooth extracted, a dental implant from Advanced Dentistry of Mount Pleasant might be the right restorative option for you. Implants are an investment in your dental health, and with proper care they can last a lifetime. Here are some things to consider when determining whether this long-lasting solution is the best treatment for you.
The main benefit of dental implants is their permanence. Other restorative solutions for missing teeth are removable, and this means that patients must take them out when they eat, drink, and sleep. Because dental implants are durable and long lasting, patients can smile confidently knowing that their replacement tooth will be secure for years to come. Implants improve your dental health, but they can also improve the appearance of your smile. Since implants are custom made with state-of-the-art technology, your replacement tooth will look and feel natural, giving you a renewed sense of confidence.
During your consultation with Dr. Vinson, she will assess your dental health to determine whether you are a good candidate for implants. Since dental implants are permanent and they are surgically placed into your jawbone, patients receiving the treatment must have sufficient bone and healthy gums to support the implant once it is placed. Dr. Vinson will take an x-ray to get a detailed and accurate picture of your mouth before your treatment. If your jawbone and gums are healthy enough to support the implant, your treatment will begin.
Because implants are permanent and likely won’t need to be replaced, this solution is an investment in your health. Though dental implants may seem like a costly treatment up front, many other options may need to be replaced as often as every 5 to 10 years, requiring a more significant investment of your time and money in the future. To help our patients make sound choices for their dental health that will keep them happy in the long run, Advanced Dentistry of Mount Pleasant works with a wide range of insurance companies and we offer financing options to keep your care within your budget.
If you’re curious about dental implants and want some honest guidance, the team at Advanced Dentistry of Mount Pleasant is happy to help. Dr. Vinson will listen to your specific needs and keep you well-informed about the treatment process while taking the time to answer all of your questions.
