Dental Implants

A Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth

At Lake Myrtle Dental, dental implants are a state-of-the-art tooth replacement option that provides a permanent and natural-looking solution for missing teeth. A dental implant consists of a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as a sturdy foundation for a replacement tooth or dental restoration.

The Process of Getting Dental Implants

  1. Consultation: During your initial consultation, our experienced dental team will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if dental implants are the right option for you.
  2. Implant Placement: The dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone by our skilled oral surgeon or implantologist. Over time, the implant fuses with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, providing a stable and secure foundation for the replacement tooth.
  3. Healing Period: After implant placement, a healing period of several months is typically required to allow the implant to integrate fully with the jawbone. During this time, temporary restorations may be provided as needed.
  4. Restoration: Once the implant has healed and fused with the jawbone, a custom-made dental crown, bridge, or denture is attached to the implant to replace the missing tooth or teeth. These restorations are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a functional and aesthetically pleasing result.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  1. Stability and Durability: Dental implants provide a stable and long-lasting solution for missing teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
  2. Preservation of Jawbone: Unlike traditional tooth replacement options, dental implants stimulate the jawbone and help prevent bone loss, preserving facial structure and preventing facial sagging.
  3. Natural Appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, providing a seamless and lifelike appearance that enhances your smile and overall facial aesthetics.
  4. Improved Oral Health: Dental implants do not require alterations to adjacent teeth, preserving their natural structure and promoting better oral health in the long term.
  5. Versatility: Dental implants can be used to replace single teeth, multiple teeth, or even entire arches of missing teeth, making them a versatile solution for patients with varying degrees of tooth loss.
