Dental Implants in Asheville & Brevard, NC
If you have missing teeth, whether it is just one or many, dental implants in Asheville, NC with Dr. Glenn J. Shefter and Dr. Greg S. Fertik will have you smiling with confidence again.
Many people need a tooth replacement because of missing teeth. As many as 70 percent of adults have lost a tooth by midlife and more than a quarter of adults over the age of 73 have none of their own natural teeth left. If you are missing teeth, you are not alone.
Whether it is gum disease, injury, or genetics that causes teeth to be lost, more people today are choosing to have a dental implant procedure instead of traditional tooth replacement options.
A Dental Implant Procedure
A dental implant procedure provides patients with missing teeth a more natural, dependable smile than treatments of the past, such as dental bridges and dentures. These appliances are still available and widely used to replace missing teeth but they can be uncomfortable, unnatural looking, and in some cases cause health problems for patients.
A dental implant procedure gives patients with missing teeth a smile that looks real and functions like the real thing. Supported by medical research, dental implants mimic natural teeth, providing a strong, stable, dependable smile. Implants enable people who have them to eat the foods they love and socialize without the embarrassment of any of the slips or noises commonly associated with dentures.
A dental implant procedure is also good for your health. Dental implants are decay resistant and placed right in the jaw where they fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. This helps to prevent bone loss because, as real tooth roots do, dental implants engage the jaw and keep it stimulated every day.
Dental implants require no special care either, just the usual brushing, flossing, dental cleanings and dental exams that natural teeth need to stay healthy.
If your smile is less than perfect because of missing teeth, consider a dental implant procedure. Dental implants in Asheville, NC are today’s preferred choice for missing teeth. Call Dr. Shefter and Dr. Fertik today for your friendly, personalized consultation.
