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.

The benefits of implant dentistry for Greenville, SC guests

Chances are, you’ve heard of dental implants, although you may not fully understand them. In recent decades, more and more guests come into our office inquiring about implant dentistry. Dental implants are a permanent and stable way to replace missing teeth, regardless of the reason they are gone. The implants are surgically placed into the bone and left to heal. During this time, the implants fuse with the bone, becoming part of the support structure for the teeth. The implant is then topped with an abutment, which acts as the “connecting link” between the implant and a restoration such as a crown or denture.

 

Traditionally, dental implants are made of titanium, which is a metal. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we practice holistic dentistry, which uses only biocompatible materials. Because of this, we offer guests Zirconia dental implants, a metal-free alternative to titanium. These ceramic-based implants will not irritate the gum tissue and are just as successful as their metal counterpart. Another benefit to Zirconia is that it is white, whereas titanium is grey. In many cases, guests with titanium dental implants will notice a dark gray line along the gum line. This will not happen with Zirconia implants.

 

The entire dental implant process can take several months. During the initial procedure, the implants are placed and then capped with a temporary restoration to allow healing. After several months, the healing process is complete and the guest can return for placement of final restorations.

 

Missing teeth can be challenging for guests. There can be a loss of self-esteem, which can affect professional and personal lives. We want all of our guests to have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a beautifully restored smile. If you are in the Greenville, SC area and have been dealing with gaps in your smile, or ill-fitting dentures, it’s time to find out if implant dentistry can give you the permanent solution for which you’ve been searching. Call us today to schedule your dental implant consultation and find out how you can replace those missing teeth and your missing confidence.
