What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the answer to your smile problems. If you need an extraction due to infection, tooth decay, gum disease, or other issues then the dental implant is the ideal choice for tooth replacement. The dental implant is the most comfortable and natural way of replacing that tooth missing in your smile. It is the most realistic looking option of tooth replacement that you could be offered by any High Point dentist. Many High Point dentists are not able to do Dental Implants but here in our High Point office we can accommodate any procedure you would need. The dental implant is better than a denture because it is a long term fix for any teeth lost in the smile. As opposed to a denture, the dental implant is anchored to the mouth like the rest of your teeth. This assimilates the natural process of tooth leverage that the jaw bone requires to maintain the shape of your smile. The implant does not have to be cleaned separately like a denture either. The dental implant essentially acts like a normal tooth in your mouth and can be cleaned as such. This requires regular routine brushing and flossing. This is why there is so much popularity around dental implants. There are no hassles with dental implants. With dentures you have to worry about speech abnormalities and trouble with dislodgement of the denture. This is something you will never have to worry about with your dental implant. We can cure speech problems and the aesthetic issues with your smile using the dental implant. Using the implant we can also maintain the jaw structure and integrity so that you have a natural looking and comfortable implant.

How is a dental implant performed?
Normally your teeth are anchored to your upper jaw (the maxilla) and the lower jaw (the mandible) by tooth roots. These roots are hollow pieces of bone that supply the tooth and anchor it to the jaw. That is how a tooth is supposed to anchored to the mouth. With dentures the tooth is never anchored to the mouth and thus the entire physics of the jaw can change. This can lead to changes in your jaw structure, physiology and the look of your smile overall. That is why the dental implant is favored over the denture. Dentures also have to be removed to be cleaned and can harbor bacteria that is not native to the mouth in turn. The dental implant is anchored to the jaw and can be cleaned just like a regular tooth. Because it is anchored to the jaw the push and pull of the implant will force the jaw into the correct shape for your smile. Call now if you want a free quote on dental implants today: 336-791-0903
