Greenville dentist offers dental implants as one of the best options for tooth restoration
Tooth loss is devastating. Aesthetically, it detracts from your smile by leaving a gap in place of the missing tooth. Functionally, it can cause your teeth to shift leading you to speak or eat differently. Tooth loss also opens your mouth to the possibility of infections or bone deterioration. For Greenville patients searching for the best tooth restorations, Dr. Palmer offers dental implants as an effective treatment option.
What are dental implants?
Tooth implants are cylinders or posts made of biocompatible materials. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we use a Z Systems one piece zirconia implant to the device is durable and easily accepted by the body. Implants are surgically inserted into the jaw. After the mouth has time to heal, a crown or restoration is placed on top for an aesthetically pleasing smile. The crown and implant work together to function as a strong, natural-looking tooth.
Cost effective benefits
Some patients are concerned about the initial expense of dental restorations. However, the longevity and durability of dental implants cannot be denied. When properly placed and cared for, implants can last a lifetime preventing the need for future dentistry on that tooth. Surgical placement into the bone ensures the stability of the restoration and keeps the jawbone from deteriorating.
Other restorations alone do not have the same stability, durability, or health benefits. Crowns, bridges, and dentures need to be replaced over time. Implants do not making them more cost effective. The health and cost effective benefits include:
- Implants replace the visible part of the tooth as well as the root restoring and maintaining the health of the jawbone.
- They improve the function and appearance of a smile marred by missing teeth.
- Implants are long-lasting.
