Do you have lost or broken teeth? Many dental patients are concerned with their smile, but Dr. Carter can help! We regularly perform dental implant placement and restoration. We enjoy assisting patients in their time of need and if you think you would benefit from dental implants then please contact us today.
A dental implant is a tiny, titanium screw that is placed deep into the gums and bone of the empty tooth socket. After time, nature will take its course and the bone will fuse with the dental implant. This creates a stable, artificial tooth root. Dental implants are used to anchor a dental crown, to return a tooth’s function and form to a patient. Crowns can be constructed to be durable and match an existing smile.
During your initial appointment with Dr. Carter, he’ll evaluate your jaw bone density and the health of your gums. We want to check if your dental implant will successfully form with your body before we take further action. When it’s decided that you qualify for dental implants we will plan your treatment.
First, Dr. Carter will surgically place your dental implant within the jaw bone and gum tissue. This will be followed by a period of recovery during which your new implant will fuse with your soft tissue and bone.
Once we’ve determined that your dental implant process was a success, our team will attach a crown to your dental implant. Dental implants can also be used to retain bridges or fixed hybrid dentures. Dr. Carter can also attach these dental prosthetics but it depends on your needs and preferences. Each of these smile solutions can be made to look like a patient’s actual set of teeth and are created to be permanent. Speak with Dr. Carter to learn more about the many uses of dental implants and the benefits of bridges and fixed hybrid dentures.
