According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, more than 30 million Americans require dentures, as they are missing all teeth in either one or both jaws. Dental implants offer an alternative to crowns, bridges and dentures for individuals, and the success rate seen with implants is 98 percent, as reported in scientific literature. Individuals wishing to know more about — single dental implants or all-on-4 charlotte nc need look no further than Harrell Dental Implant Center.
"One's smile is very important. According to WebMD, when a person smiles, others perceive them to be intelligent and outgoing and someone worth learning more about. Smiling benefits one's health, how others perceive them at work, their romantic status and their social life. For this reason, anyone missing one or more teeth should learn more about tooth replacement options, including implants," Dr. Robert L. Harrell announces.
Dental implants provide an alternative to traditional tooth replacement options and may be used to replace multiple teeth. A titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone and an abutment or small post sits on this screw. A porcelain replacement tooth, referred to as a crown, is then attached to the abutment, and with proper placement and home oral care, the dental implant looks and functions as a natural tooth for years.
Most patients find they can easily make use of implants, rather than turning to bridges, crowns or dentures, Dr. Harrell reports. In certain cases, additional treatment will be needed, such as when there is a loss of bone in the area of the jaw where the implant is to be placed. In addition, certain medical conditions may interfere with the implantation process, such as diabetes or a bleeding disorder. The dentist evaluates each patient to determine if he or she is a good candidate for implants.
Traditional dentures must be removed and cleaned and, over time, the denture may need to be relined or a new one made. For this reason, many now look to alternatives when multiple teeth need to be replaced, and the all-on-4 dental implants allow one to obtain a new set of permanent teeth. The fixed dentures allow one to smile with confidence and one cares for the implants as they would their natural teeth.
