Losing teeth can leave us with more problems than we may realize. On the surface, it may create medical concerns or make you feel like you’ve lost some of the ease of function of your mouth. However, it may also leave you with a smile you don’t love, and you might not feel like yourself anymore. Consider restoring your smile with dental implants from Dr. Wendy Willoughby, DDS in Asheville.
With a set of custom dental implants, our team can completely transform your smile. In addition to restoring your appearance, these advanced devices will also allow you to eat and speak with confidence. If you are missing one or more permanent teeth, then the time to act and start restoring your smile could be now.
Understanding Dental Implants
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or completely restore a patient’s mouth after all of their teeth have fallen out. They can be permanent or semi-permanent, and they can be used as means of securing bridgework, crowns, or dentures. The implants are typically made out of titanium. Dental implants are secured directly to the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration, which can provide longevity of the implant.
Your Implant Procedure
It is important to us that your dental implant procedure helps you achieve you’ve always wanted. To ensure you love your smile, our team of experts will consult with you to determine if dental implants are the right procedure for your goals, and they will help you develop a customized treatment plan.
How Your New Smile Can Help You
Dental implants serve more than just aesthetic functions. They can be helping in improving your oral health and support areas such as cheeks, gum tissue, and lips. They can help stabilize and maintain your jaw bone, its shape, and its bone density. You may even find your dental implants make it easier for you to speak, and they could make you feel more comfortable on a daily basis.
