If you’re missing one or more of your teeth, you know how hard it can be to enjoy your favorite foods or to smile with confidence. Not to mention the added worry over the possibility of your remaining teeth shifting. But you don’t have to suffer through the discomfort or embarrassment. Dental implants provide patients with missing teeth an option for a full, natural smile.
Dental implants are essentially prosthetic teeth attached to a prosthetic tooth root. A titanium post is implanted into the jawbone and as nature takes over, the bone will fuse to the newly implanted post to create a solid foundation. Once the implant has had time to properly heal and become secure, Dr. Jenkins will attach a permanent, handcrafted crown to the post.
How can dental implants benefit you? The implant will look, feel, and function like your natural teeth, as well as:
- Imitate the natural tooth from the root down
- Minimize bone loss
- Stop the shifting of adjacent teeth
- Improve speech
- Restore the ability to eat hard-to-chew food
- Return structure to facial features for a more youthful appearance
3D Imaging for Implant Placement
Oral surgery requires precision. Using the most advanced 3D technology available, i-CAT and Cone Beam imaging, Dr. Jenkins has the ability to view important internal structures beneath the teeth and gums including teeth roots, internal canals, and bone structure. This capability allows Dr. Jenkins to very precisely plan and perform implant surgery, making it more targeted, more effective and less invasive.Call Bluffton Dental Care
