If you’re looking for a solution to replace missing teeth, consider Campbell Dentistry to go over your options. Implants may be the route to go for those who find dentures uncomfortable and who want minimal long-term maintenance. Patients love implants due to the ease of maintenance and the natural feel and overall appearance.

An implant is a sterile screw that is surgically placed into the bone by a specialist. Following a healing period, the artificial tooth is attached to the implant screw. For people who want to restore confidence in their smile, implants could be a desirable option.

Implants replace missing teeth while easily blending with your natural smile. They can be used to support single crowns, bridges or full dentures, and offer these additional benefits:

  • Long-term solution

  • Secure feeling

  • Limited maintenance required

  • Natural look and feel 

Implants begin with the surgical placement of a sterile screw into the jawbone, followed by healing time. The healing time may vary, depending on the individual, as the bone grows around the screw to anchor it in place. After the area is sufficiently healed, an artificial tooth is placed onto the screw, creating a natural and secure smile.
