When it comes to tooth loss the most important thing is that you turn to a dentist right away that can provide you with the treatment options you need to make an informed decision about your oral health. Here in Charlotte, NC, our dentist Dr. Ramesh Sunar knows that those dealing with tooth loss want only the most reliable and trustworthy dental restorations. Find out if dental implants fit your smile needs.

Dealing with one or more missing teeth can affect so much, from your self-confidence to your speech to even the foods you eat. All you know is that you want a restoration that will be reliable and long-lasting. Luckily, implants are the closest you can come to real teeth. This restoration is not just made to look like a real tooth but also function like one, too.

What is a dental implant?

Simply put, an implant is an artificial tooth root made from a biocompatible and resilient metal like titanium. Once you lose a tooth the tooth roots are no longer there to stimulate the jawbone. As a result, the jawbone begins to deteriorate; however, to prevent further bone deterioration our Charlotte, NC, cosmetic dentist can place the implant into the jawbone where it will take over the role of tooth roots.

What makes a dental implant different from other tooth replacements?

Implants are the only restoration that is placed into the jawbone to take over for your missing tooth’s roots. Plus, implants actually fuse together with bone and tissue over the course of several months to become a permanent structure. This is completely different from dentures, which often shift and move around on top of the gums even with adhesives and natural suction. If you want a tooth replacement that resembles a real tooth then you can’t get any better than an implant.

Missing several teeth? No problem! Just as a single implant is used to replace a missing tooth, multiple implants are placed along the jawbone to support a dental bridge or full set of dentures, depending on your tooth loss needs.
