Permanent Replacements for Missing Teeth
Dental implants are the state-of-the-art method to replace single missing teeth, giving you the function and appearance you desire.
What happens when you lose a tooth?
Many people believe missing a tooth is nothing to worry about. However it is important to understand what happens when you lose a tooth. Whether a tooth is extracted by a dentist, falls out on its own because of periodontal disease (which is a common cause of tooth loss) or is knocked out because of trauma, it is seen as a loss by the body.
The gums begin to cave in around the missing tooth, causing an unnatural ridgeline and contours. Because the bone in the jaw is no longer massaged by the presence of the tooth root, it begins to be reabsorbed, causing bone density loss. A tooth also provides a barrier against decay for bone and connective tissues, which can become decayed and infected without protection.
What is Dental Implant?
Our affordable dental implants in Charlotte consist of a titanium post embedded into the place where the missing tooth root once was. After the post has been surgically placed, the site will be allowed to heal over for several months so that the post fuses with your bone.
When the healing is complete, an abutment and temporary tooth-shaped prosthetic crown will be anchored to the post. When your dentist is confident that everything looks good, he will remove the temporary crown and place a permanent, natural-looking crown.
