If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, there are different treatment options available to you. Treatment with dental implants in Irmo SC, at our dental practice, Peak Dental, is a very popular way patients like to have the missing teeth replaced because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth.
When a patient comes to our dental practice wanting to get dental implants in Irmo SC, they will be seen by our expert dentist, Dr. Pawloski Yarborough. Our dentist will need to determine whether or not you meet the candidacy qualifications for getting dental implants. Dental implants are an extremely effective procedure, however, if your jawbone is not thick enough and healthy enough to withstand the oral surgery, the dental implant procedure will not go well. For this reason, our dentist will make sure that you are a good candidate for getting dental implants, before the procedure begins. Our dentist will also need to check that your jawbone is thick enough so that the titanium dental implant root can firmly fuse to the jawbone. This is important, since this fusion process is what allows the dental implant to be such a strong and secure base for the new replacement tooth. Our dentist will also want to make sure that you do not have any medical conditions that can interfere with your jawbone’s recovery from the surgery. Once you are found to be a good candidate for dental implants, you will have dental implant root or roots surgically inserted into your jawbone, in just the right location, to hold your replacement tooth, or teeth. Today, dental implants can be used to hold dentures securely in place, as well.
