Dental Implants – Beaufort, SC
Are dental implants right for you?
Dental implants are now the standard solution to missing teeth. They are often favored over other options, such as root canals, bridges and dentures, because they allow for 100% natural oral functioning and thus, a better quality of life.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
- Natural aesthetics
- Can last a lifetime
- Prevent jawbone loss
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are tiny screws that are inserted into the jaw in place of missing tooth roots. Made of titanium, which has the unique ability to fuse with bone in a process known as “osseointegration,” dental implants are as sturdy as their natural counterparts. Once the titanium screw has fused with the bone, it is capped with an abutment (connecting piece) and, finally, a natural looking prosthetic crown.
About Guided Implants
Guided implant surgery is an improved dental implant process that utilizes Cone Beam Computed Technology (CBCT), a state-of-the-art imaging process, to create a surgical template that is then used for precision implant placement. Guided implants have become the standard of care for implant surgery.
