An attractive smile is a big part of your appearance and self-confidence. If broken teeth, gaps between teeth, or missing teeth are causing you to cover your smile, or worse, not smile at all, there is hope. Removable bridges and partial dentures are not your only option. Dental implants from Greenville, SC dentists not only improve your smile, they also improve your overall health.
Your teeth help maintain the integrity of your jawbone, and dental implants usually cause new bone growth. When you have missing teeth, the jawbone can deteriorate and cause other oral health problems. The remaining teeth will also shift and may overlap or cause large gaps between teeth. Dental implant oral surgery is done in two or three stages as an outpatient procedure. It can be done with a local anesthesia, or sedation if that’s your preference.
