Successful Tooth Replacement using Dental Implants Anderson, SC

Gaps in your smile can leave even the most confident person feeling a little self-conscious. If you’ve experienced tooth loss, whether from decay or a broken tooth, there are options to help improve your smile. Experience the benefits of dental implants from your Anderson dentist, Anderson Aesthetic & Family Dentistry.

For centuries, the only viable options for teeth replacement were dentures and bridges. However, in recent decades, a new option has come into being, one that is now considered the gold standard by most dentists. The best dental implants are indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Dental implants have been designed to closely mimic the natural root system. This may seem like a small difference, but to replace roots means a lot more than just restoring natural design, it means restoring all the functions that are inherent to natural teeth and roots.

  • Implants act as new roots to stabilize replacement teeth. A single implant can support a crown, and multiple implants can support a bridge or denture to give you back the function you once enjoyed.
  • Roots are vital to the regeneration of bone tissue in the jaw. Without adequate bone, teeth cannot be sufficiently supported, and neither can the lips and cheeks. The root system transfers force from chewing into stimulation for bone renewal. Substantial bone loss results in a shortening of the distance between the chin and the nose, which causes the appearance of age. Replacing roots with implants helps avoid the process of degeneration.

We are proud to offer not just implants to replace a few missing teeth, but All-on-4 Dental implants. These are a revolutionary alternative to traditional dentures, in which we use four dental implants to anchor your replacement teeth into your mouth. The increased stability and function of this permanent, implant-supported solution is well worth it!

At Anderson Aesthetic & Family Dentistry, dental implant treatment is a team effort. Dr. Groeber performs a thorough consultation in which the details of treatment, including healing time and maintenance are discussed. The procedure is performed by an experienced oral surgeon who has the training necessary to achieve the desired result. Because of his methods and oral surgeons chosen, Dr. Groeber is one of the best dental implant dentists to oversee the procedure in the area, and is the natural choice of where to seek dental implants in Anderson. Once implants have been inserted, you may wear temporary restorations that will support your natural appearance and ability to chew. After full stabilization of implants, which can take several months, your final restorations can be placed.

While some people believe implants to be merely cosmetic in nature, we believe that the benefits to your overall health take dental implants beyond just a cosmetic treatment. Because of the nature of dental implants, many of the chewing, eating, and speaking problems commonly experienced by denture wearers are eliminated.

Benefits of dental implants:

  • Practically permanent: Many wonder if dental implants are permanent. With an excellent oral hygiene routine, many people have their implants last the rest of their lives.
  • Healthy: If you wonder if dental implants are safe, the answer is yes! In fact, for many situations, implants are the healthiest choice. If implants are used instead of a traditional bridge to replace a few missing teeth, less of the surrounding natural teeth are impacted. Also, the implant system most closely resembles the natural teeth. This means that the overall bone structure loss that is commonly associated with missing teeth does not occur with implants.
  • Natural: Because of how the implant bonds with the jawbone, it creates a replacement tooth or teeth that feel and function like normal teeth. Because of this natural function, they also most closely resemble your own natural teeth in looks and feel.
  • Enhanced self-esteem: Because of the benefits listed above, the long-lasting nature, the natural fit and function, and close resemblance to natural teeth, most patients report feeling better about their smiles, and better about themselves. This impacts how they interact with the world every day.
