Missing teeth can make life much harder than it needs to be. From avoiding certain foods to thinking twice before laughing or smiling around others, even a single missing tooth can alter a person’s daily habits and lifestyle. If this sounds like you, High Point Dentistry would love to help! We create custom tooth implants for patients that look and feel great.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants offer a variety of benefits to patients who choose to utilize them. Dental implants:
- Look, feel, and function similarly to natural teeth
- Help maintain a patient’s face shape and jawbone health
- Are extremely stable and durable
- Do not require any special treatment
- Help boost patients’ self esteem
- Can last for many decades or even a lifetime
The Implant Process
The tooth implant process always begins with a consultation, where our team will assess your oral health, lifestyle, budget, and preferences to determine if a single tooth implant is right for you. The actual procedure will involve making a small incision in the gums, creating a hole in the jawbone, and placing the implant in the bone. The healing process takes a few weeks, after which the implant should be stable and ready for a custom implant crown to be attached. Then, you’re free to show off your brand new smile!
Are single tooth implants expensive?
Dental implants tend to be more of an investment than other restorative treatment options. However, many patients choose implants over other alternatives due to their durability and stability. At High Point Dentistry, we want to help any patient who wants to replace their missing teeth with single tooth implants find a flexible financing option that works with their budget.
