Fill that empty space where you used to have teeth because not only does it improve your appearance, but it’s good for your oral wellness, too. Here at Smile More Dentistry, we want you to know about the benefits of our Orangeburg dental implants, the choice that looks, feels, and acts the most natural when it comes to full-tooth restorations.
The one glaring omission of traditional bridges and dentures is that they don’t have a supporting root beneath them. Your real teeth do. And when you lose one of them, the bone and gum tissue can begin to atrophy. Your normal facial contours change. And it’s much more difficult to create a reliable tooth replacement without a root. That’s why fixed bridges are anchored to their neighboring teeth, which requires that some of the material from those teeth are going to be removed as part of the process. And it’s why dentures, even with the application of messy adhesive, are not 100% dependable. They can slide or move when you speak or chew. Our Orangeburg dental implants begin by having a titanium post (the root) surgically placed in your jaw. This post extends up to the gum line. And once your bone tissue has grown around the post and fused with it, which takes a few months, it is as strong as a natural root. It is then that impressions are taken and used to make a tooth-colored crown. Cemented to the post, it completes the procedure. You then have a complete smile once more. And with proper care, you should expect to get many years of use out of our Orangeburg dental implants. They may even last for life.
