Missing teeth can take a toll on your quality of life, but you don't want just any tooth replacement: you want a stable, permanent solution.
Dental implants can replace your teeth and provide excellent stability for bridges, crowns, and dentures, along with other benefits.
Learn how the team at the Center for Dentistry in Aiken, SC, can restore your smile and give you natural-looking results with implants.
Dental Implants Restore Your Dental Health
A Lifetime of Benefits
Patients who choose dental implants can expect these titanium devices to last 40 years or longer with proper care. Restorations will need replacement periodically, but the implants themselves can provide lifelong benefits.
Maintain Jawbone Density
When you lose your natural teeth, the bone tissue in your jaw will begin to deteriorate over time. This can lead to further tooth loss and other health issues. Dental implants are the only dental treatment that can stop bone atrophy after losing a tooth.
Restore Form and Function
Dental implants provide a solid foundation for dental restorations, allowing you to chew and speak without worrying that restorations like dentures will slip out of place. Your dentist can provide a bridge, crown, or denture that will blend seamlessly with your surrounding natural teeth.
5-Star Reviews From Our Patients
Center for Dentistry is an excellent group! I've been a patient here since moving to Aiken, and have been absolutely impressed at the high quality care during each visit. The staff are all amazing, and both Dr Tal and Dr Leah are wonderful! I recommend them to anyone seeking a high quality caring dental practice!View on Google
Great dentist. I've never had a better experience getting a cavity filled before. I literally didn't feel a thing (first time that ever happened) and they got in and out when working on the filling so fast. Also, very nice atmosphere in the office and the staff and dentists are wonderful. Would highly recommend.View on Google
Implants vs Traditional Restorations
Other tooth replacements like dental bridges or dentures can be a good choice for some patients, but these restorations cannot stop jawbone atrophy. Changing jawbone and gum shape is why traditional restorations require adjustments, relining, and general maintenance to fit properly. While the upfront costs associated with bridges and dentures are lower than those associated with dental implants, the price of adjustments adds up over time.
Implant-supported restorations are solidly secured in place compared to traditional alternatives, which results in a more natural-feeling restoration that does not slip or shift position. And because they help maintain jawbone density, they require significantly fewer adjustments. In the long run, the cost of implants vs traditional restorations may be negligible, but implants provide a higher quality of life.

How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are the only restoration that can prevent your jawbone from deteriorating due to missing teeth, because they provide stimulation to the bone. Normally, the body stops sending nutrients and resources to the site of a missing tooth, causing the bone to deteriorate over time.
Dental implants are made using biocompatible materials like titanium. Once your body accepts the implant, it will treat the implant like a natural tooth root and keep sending resources to that section of your jaw.

Our Premium Implant Selection
While most implants have textures to help them integrate with your jawbone, BioHorizons takes it a step further. These implants have surfaces that can bond with soft tissue as well, to help form a stable connection with your gums.
Zimmer Biomet implants use textures and unique 3D designs that encourage tissue growth and integration with the jawbone. Early evidence suggests some of their implants can improve your recovery time.
Financing Your Dental Implants
Even though dental implants are the most comprehensive restoration with long-lasting results, the treatment is not usually covered under most insurance plans. We offer several ways to help make the cost of implant treatment more affordable for our patients.
We offer 6-12 month internal payment plans as well as financing through Proceed Finance® and CareCredit®.
VIP Club members can receive discounts on dental treatments and other services when insurance coverage is not an option.
