Because your smile is a pivotal component of your health and daily living, losing one or more teeth can affect how you feel and function. Conspicuous gaps in your smile make you feel embarrassed about your smile. Missing teeth also take away your ability to speak or chew properly. Worse yet, if you delay treating your missing tooth, bone atrophy sets in, and your face starts caving in. Ultimately, the ongoing effects of missing teeth can take a significant toll on your health, functionality, and mental well-being.
Whether you are missing one or several teeth, Drs. Gary and Scott Pearl and the team at Pearl Dental Care can help restore your smile’s beauty, functionality, and fullness. We use natural-looking dental implants to restore your smile to what it used to be before.
A dental implant requires at least three components to complete the tooth replacement. The implant itself is a titanium screw inserted into your gum to act as a tooth root. Due to its biocompatibility properties, it fuses with the bone to provide a stable anchor for the prosthetic teeth. An abutment is a connector that links the implant post to the prosthetic component, which could be a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on the number of teeth missing.
Dental implants are versatile enough to replace one, several, or all your teeth. Here are dental implant options you can access in our dental practice:
While most dentists pride themselves on offering dental implants, only a few of them do the entire procedure under one roof. At Pearl Dental Care, the whole dental implant process — from preparation, placement to restoration — is done right here in the office!
And that’s not all. We have cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) to plan your entire dental implant placement. This dental imaging enables our dentists to place implants more precisely and conservatively than traditional technology.
