Spaces left by missing teeth can cause not only embarrassment but discomfort as well. But did you know that they could also negatively affect your oral health if left untreated? Our Lumberton, NC, dentist Dr. Colin Osborne, III, offers dental implant services to help restore your smile’s function and beauty.
Dental Implants Offer Benefits That Can Last a Lifetime
Aside from rebuilding your smile, dental implants also offer the following benefits:
- A Confidence Boost – Restorations supported by dental implants will remain firmly in place. This will give you more confidence when smiling, talking, and eating.
- Improved Oral Health – Your jawbone will eventually atrophy or shrink without stimulation from the teeth roots. Among all teeth replacement options, dental implants are the only ones that can prevent atrophy. Likewise, you can brush and floss them like you would your natural teeth.
- Support That Lasts – Implanted and maintained properly, dental implants could last more than 40 years.
Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
It doesn’t matter how many teeth you need to replace. As long as you’re an ideal candidate for dental implants, our Lumberton dentist can create a treatment plan that will fit your specific needs. For instance, if you just need to replace one tooth, you’ll only need an implant-supported dental crown. On the other hand, if you need to replace multiple missing teeth, you will need a dental implant-supported denture or bridge for better results.
Further, if you’re missing all of your teeth, dental implants could be a better alternative to traditional removable dentures. Implant-supported dentures will offer more security and stability than removable teeth restoration treatments.
In this day and age, you really don’t have to live with missing teeth. Rebuild your smile today by dialing (910) 738-9396 and scheduling a consultation with our Lumberton, NC, dentist Dr. Colin Osborne, III, today.
