Dental Implants

Missing teeth take a serious toll on both the appearance and health of your smile.

Dental implants replace tooth roots, providing excellent stability for bridges, crowns, and dentures.

The friendly 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 a tooth, the bone tissue in your jaw will begin to recede. This can lead to further tooth loss and other health issues. Implants are the only dental treatment that can stop bone atrophy after tooth loss.

Restore Form and Function

Dental implants provide a solid foundation for dental restorations, allowing you to chew and speak without worrying that your restorations will slip out of place. Your dentist can provide a bridge, crown, or denture that will blend seamlessly with your surrounding natural teeth.

They really care about their patients and do their very best to ensure that you are comfortable at all times.  Highly recommend.

An Investment in Your Quality of Life

Traditionally, missing teeth are treated with a dental bridge or denture alone. These restorations are an attractive choice, especially when considering costs, but traditional bridges and dentures cannot stop jawbone atrophy because they are unable to provide the needed stimulation to the jawbone. This is why traditional restorations require adjustments, relining, and general maintenance to function 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 more secure than traditional alternatives. And because they help maintain jawbone density, they require significantly fewer adjustments. In the long run, the cost difference is negligible. Our Aiken, SC, dentist office lets patients pay in installments over the course of six to 12 months to make this solution affordable.

Titanium dental implants anchor restorations directly to the jaw, allowing you to chew and speak with confidence.

Dental Implant Treatment Timeline

Dental implants traditionally require two surgeries (the second involves placing an abutment device onto the implant that attaches to the restoration) and four to six months of healing time. However, our practice can provide same-day implants for the right candidates. We place high-quality BioHorizons and Zimmer implants using sophisticated computer-guided surgical techniques that make it possible to arrive at our office with a compromised bite and leave with a smile that is complete, fully functional, and attractive:

Initial Consultation

We will assess your candidacy for implants and discuss your goals.

Implant Placement

Implants will be surgically placed through small incisions in your gums. Next, an abutment is attached. Our advanced technology helps us to place your implants in the best possible positions for maximum functionality and long-lasting results.

Restoration Placement

A bridge, crown, or denture will be attached to the implants to restore your smile. Finally, you can leave with a full set of teeth that allows you to eat your favorite foods and smile with pride.
