Affordable Dental Implants Augusta & Aiken

The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jaw bone. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant which protrudes through the gums.

These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.

Introduction to Dental Implants

Are you missing teeth? Are you embarrassed to smile or even speak in public? Is eating solid food difficult on your mouth?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, dental implants may be your answer. Our team of oral surgeons is here to give you that confident smile you have always wanted. With dental implants, you can replace your missing or damaged teeth with implants that often feel more natural than other dental restorations.

To explain it simply, a dental implant is an artificial tooth root. Placed into the gum and fused with the jawbone giving it a solid foundation for a prosthesis or artificial tooth.

Here at Aiken Augusta Oral & Facial Surgery, our oral surgeons will work with you closely preparing your jaw, placing the implant, and building the prosthesis. They will be there along the way to explain the procedure step by step including post dental care.

Recovery Time

Each patient will be different in terms of treatment time. The majority of cases range from a couple of months to a year. Our surgical team will be there to answer any questions you may have. Please keep in mind that insurance will likely not pay for your implants and the use of tobacco products and certain medications can affect your recovery process.

For best results:

  • Prepare to adapt to a lifetime of excellent oral hygiene.
  • Follow up appointments are extremely important. Don’t miss them.
  • Take extremely great care of your oral health, including gum tissue, during the implant process.
  • You should have 3 to 4 dental checkups a year to ensure healthy gums.
  • Contact our staff if any problems should arise.

Your Dental Examination

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli.

Imaging Tests

Dental x-rays, Panoramic x-rays, CT scans, and x-ray tomography may be used to further evaluate your jawbone. This will give our surgeons valuable insight into just how much healthy bone is in your jaw.

The Implant & Prosthesis

The implant is first inserted in the place of the missing tooth. The jawbone will naturally heal and bond with the implant. The prosthesis is the last step in the procedure, however, there are multiple stages. Our professional surgeons will keep you informed every step of the way.

Depending on how many teeth you are missing, you might have a single, partial, or complete prosthesis. A temporary prosthesis may be used until the jawbone has fully merged with the implant. A single prosthesis only requires one single tooth implant, whereas, a partial prosthesis may require two or more implants. Lastly, a complete prosthesis will replace all of your teeth in the upper or lower jaw. The number of implants required will be determined by our surgical team.

Alternative Treatments to Consider

If our team finds you not to be a good candidate for dental implants we may suggest other alternatives for your consideration.

These are as follows:

Fixed bridge – You could consider replacing missing teeth with a fixed bridge which is much less invasive than an implant.

Dentures – Our team can help you adjust pre-existing dentures or help you find a complete denture set to avoid surgical procedures.

Risk and complications can arise so it’s important to weigh each option carefully. In which case, our surgical team will certainly help you in your decision-making process.
