Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Zirconia Dental Implants are safe and effective for guests missing teeth in Greenville, SC

For centuries there have been various methods of tooth replacement. In its earliest form, missing teeth were replaced with carved stone. Luckily, modern technology and medicine have advanced beyond carved stone and have led the dental world to dental implants.

 

At his Greenville, SC office, Dr. Palmer uses Zirconia dental implants for restoring smiles. The implant process takes place over the period of several months, but the end result is replacement teeth that look and function just like natural teeth.

 

A dental implant is a replacement for a missing tooth root. Dr. Palmer uses Zirconia dental implants because of its strong and biocompatible material; safe for use in the mouth. Once in place, the Zirconia implant will fuse with the jawbone, creating stabilization for prosthetic devices; such as dentures or bridges.

 

The procedure for placing the implant takes place in the office under local anesthetic or light sedation. Once complete, the mouth is given time to heal as the implant fuses with the bone. This process usually takes 3 – 6 months. Once the fusion and healing are complete, guests return to the office to be fit with the final prosthetic which can be a dental crown, bridge, or dentures.

 

One of the biggest advantages of dental implants is that it prevents bone resorption. In the absence of a natural tooth and root, the jawbone can begin to deteriorate. If this resorption continues, it can impact the appearance of face. Replacing the root with the implant can help prevent this process from progressing.

 

In order to be eligible for implants, guests must have sufficient bone structure. It is extremely important for guests to seek dental care right away in the case of lost teeth. Guests may still be eligible for dental implants after a bone grafting procedure. Details about this can be discussed in your consultation.

 

Dental implants are a great way to have your beautiful smile restored and fully functioning after tooth loss. If you are ready to learn more about the dental implant procedure and find out if you are an eligible candidate, call Dr. Palmer today to schedule your consultation.
