How oral health and wellness can be improved for Greenwood area residents with the placement of dental implants

oral health and wellness placement of dental implants

Patients in Greenwood faced with tooth loss have several options available to them with Dr. Christopher T. Griffin, including dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. For permanent, efficient tooth replacement, many of our patients consider the benefits dental implants can provide. These titanium restorations are used to replace one or more teeth in several ways. They can hold bridges and dentures in place, or be covered with a crown to replace just one tooth. These versatile restorations have many advantages which make them the solution of choice for many individuals who visit this practice.

Dental implants are placed into the jawbone. This allows them to improve overall oral health and wellness. The placement of a dental implant stimulates bone regeneration, something other restorations do not provide. Patients wearing dentures or dental bridges may be at risk for losing bone and experiencing issues with their other teeth which may become loose.

Dr. Christopher T. Griffin knows that the use of dental implants can impact the smile in a positive way. They can also provide improved self-confidence, speech, and comfort. Patients find dental implants to be extremely durable, lasting a lifetime with proper care. They are convenient and make eating and speaking as easy as ever.

To determine if patients are appropriate candidates for the placement of dental implants, they must have a consultation appointment. At this visit, patients undergo x-rays to check the health of the bone underneath the gum tissue as well as examine the overall health of the mouth. Then, they are encouraged to ask questions about dental implant as well as other restorations to make an educated decision regarding the best tooth replacement option for them.

    I've gone to at least 3 different dentists over the past few years, consistently had dental problems and had to get the same treatment done over and over again. Since I started going to Dr. Griffin, my dental problems are all solved for good. Here is a dentist with so much attention to detail and you can tell he truly loves what he does and sincerely cares about his patients. ~ Jenny
