Are you considering a single implant with a Greenwood area dentist for tooth replacement?

Single Tooth Implant in Greenwood area

Tooth loss or extraction can impact an adult smile in many ways. Primarily, it can cause bone loss through bone resorption that can cause disfigurement of the jaw. It can also make it more difficult for patients to speak clearly and eat properly. With the help of Dr. Christopher T. Griffin, patients in the Greenwood, SC area have options available to them to consider for replacing a single tooth, including dental implants.

Understanding how dental implants work

Dr. Christopher T. Griffin finds that dental implants are an excellent solution for many patients faced with tooth loss. The implant is a unique titanium post that the dentist can place into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery. The implant stimulates the production of natural bone through osseointegration, in which the implant is held firmly in place. Osseointegration ensures the durability and strength of the restoration. The top of the single implant, called the abutment, is then restored with a dental crown, which acts as the false tooth. The combination of treatments produces a false tooth that repairs the smile’s appearance and function while ensuring bone growth for optimum dental health and wellness.

Who is a candidate for a single tooth implant?

Not everyone is fit for dental implants. To determine candidacy, we encourage patients to contact our practice for a consultation visit with Dr. Christopher T. Griffin. During this initial evaluation, he will assess the bone of the jaw to determine if patients can have dental implants placed successfully without failure. If there is not enough bone to safely place the implant, alternatives may be considered. Patients may also speak to our team about the possibility of grafting bone to build up the jaw and prepare it for a dental implant in the future.
