Dental implants restore the natural appearance & function of missing teeth, making them the ideal way to restore your smile. A dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone as an anchor for a natural looking crown.
Dental implants are extremely strong, stable & durable. In fact, with proper maintenance they can last a lifetime.
Dental implants are strong & secure so you can speak & eat with confidence! In addition to restoring your natural chewing & speech, they can resolve the joint pain or bite problems caused when teeth begin to shift following tooth loss. Dental implants have the added benefit of being strong enough to support other dental appliances, making bridgework or dentures more secure & comfortable. Plus, they look so real that they are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Implant placement requires a number of visits over several months. We will carefully explain each step of the treatment to you & provide you with after-care instructions to ensure that your teeth & gums remain healthy. Following placement, periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implants, teeth & gums. Proper oral hygiene, good eating habits & regular dental visits will help maintain the life of your new implants.
Skill & technique on the part of the clinician are critical for achieving a natural looking result. Dr. Chuck Smith has years of advanced training in dental implant restorations & works with top periodontists & implant dentists in the Hartwell area to ensure you receive the best quality care.
