How Dental Implants Help Your Smile

Tooth loss doesn’t have to lead to further smile problems. Implants can help.

It’s true that dental implants have become a very popular way to replace missing teeth in adults. And why shouldn’t it be popular? After all, it’s a long-term tooth replacement that truly does mimic the appearance and functionality of a real tooth. You have to appreciate the wonder of dental technology and how far it’s come. Here’s what to expect when you get dental implants from our Kernersville, NC, dentists Dr. Wear and Dr. Bhatti,

Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants 

You shouldn’t leave gaps in your smile, otherwise, you risk dealing with further complications and smile issues down the road. That’s why it’s a good idea to visit your family dentist here in Kernersville, NC, as soon as possible after losing a tooth to find out what your options are. Most people choose implants because they are designed to replace the whole tooth, from the crown all the way down to the roots. An implant is made up of three parts,

  • The metal post or screw, which is placed directly into the jawbone to replace the roots of your tooth
  • The abutment, which sits on top of the metal post and connects the implant with the artificial tooth
  • The artificial tooth, or dental crown

It can take several months to get your full dental implant, as we have to wait several months for the jawbone and implant to integrate naturally. Implants offer an up to 98 percent success rate, which also puts our patients’ minds at ease.

The Benefits of Dental Implants 

Implants offer unique benefits. Some of these benefits include,

  • Supporting the natural structure of the face to prevent sagging skin, structural changes to the face and the formation of lines and wrinkles
  • Filling gaps in your smile to prevent your natural teeth from shifting into those gaps
  • Fully restored chewing and speaking
  • A tooth that stays put, doesn’t move around and can last the rest of your life with the proper maintenance and care
  • A renewed sense of confidence in your appearance
