What Are The Advantages of Dental Implants? By SEO Admin on September 03, 2012

A smile is the first thing people notice when they strike up a conversation. This is why going through life with missing teeth can be tough. When people see a toothless person, they may pass judgment, whisper hurtful things behind their back or simply assume the person is older than their years. An individual with missing teeth may even be discriminated against at work. We at Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, don't ever like to think this way, however, it is a reality we know exists in the dental community.

With the advancements in dentistry, there is no need for people to spend the rest of their lives with toothless grins. Anyone living in the Charlotte can visit our Blakeney dental office and see if dental implants are right for them.

Benefits of Dental Implants

A dental implant is a restorative device that qualified dentists can place in the jaw to hold one or more replacement teeth in the mouth. The most common kinds of implants used are subperiosteal and endosteal. With Endosteal implants, screws, blades or cylinders are surgically put into the bone of the jaw. With subperiosteal implants, the device is placed on top of the jaw bone so that the metal frameworks posts sticks out through the gum and holds the teeth in place.

Dental implants are extremely successful at restoring toothless smiles. If the implants are done properly and the patient follows care and maintenance instructions, these devices can last a lifetime. Dental implants from our South Charlotte dentist office are reasonably priced and can have a lasting impact on your looks and confidence.

Don't spend another day toothless. Our Charlotte cosmetic dentists, Dr. Betancourt and Dr. Pinnix, can use dental implants to restore that smile to its original splendor.
