Tooth loss is devastating, but it doesn’t have to be permanent. At Radiant Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we understand the importance of a properly functioning, healthy smile. Therefore, when tooth loss occurs, we offer dental implants for patients in Pineville. Dental implants replace missing teeth to complete and restore your smile.
The loss of even a single tooth disrupts the natural balance of the mouth. The adjacent teeth may shift, eating and speaking patterns may change, and bone loss may occur. Having gaps from missing teeth damages your self-confidence and the health of your smile. Dental implants offer functional and cosmetic benefits for permanent tooth replacement.
A dental implant is a titanium or ceramic post that is positioned in the jaw in place of a missing tooth. The post mimics the tooth root, stimulates the bone to keep it healthy, and forms the base for a sturdy dental restoration.
A dental implant can be used to replace a single or multiple teeth depending on the patient’s need. A single implant and a porcelain crown can replace one tooth. Multiple implants can be placed and then attached to a bridge or crown to replace several teeth or an entire arch.
In some cases, extractions must be done before implant placement. Once the dental implant is placed, the mouth is given time to heal. Then, the abutment is attached and the crown, bridge, or denture is placed. Your smile is restored with the completed restoration which looks and functions like a natural tooth.
