When it comes to replacing missing teeth, we are able to provide the most preferred solution in modern dentistry. Short Pump Family Dentistry proudly offers dental implants to restore your smile after missing teeth. Dental implants are a restorative dentistry treatment that not only looks like real teeth, they also function and feel like natural teeth. In fact, they offer numerous benefits over other teeth replacement options, including those that affect your health as well as those that improve your quality of life.
Dental implants are highly versatile. They can be used to replace just one missing tooth or a full arch of missing teeth. Depending on your specific needs, a crown, bridge or denture can be secured to a dental implant. If cared for properly, dental implants are durable enough to last a lifetime. They represent a revolutionary treatment option that can bring you the most long-term return on your restorative dentistry investment.
Dental implants involve the surgical placement of a small titanium post into the jawbone. This biocompatible screw gradually fuses to the surrounding jawbone over time, forming an artificial tooth root that serves as a strong anchor for your crown, bridge or denture. Not only do dental implants offer unrivaled confidence while chewing, speaking and laughing, they also prevent bone loss. When teeth are missing, the jawbone doesn’t receive proper stimulation to retain its density and form. Consequently, the bone will deteriorate and lead to premature facial aging as the lower portion of the face sinks in. Dental implants are the only teeth replacement option that prevents this process.
At Short Pump Family Dentistry, we pursue excellence in implant dentistry. Our office uses advanced techniques and cutting-edge imaging to ensure your dental implants are placed with the highest rate of precision and success. For your convenience, we can handle your dental implants from start to finish, which includes your initial surgery, placing your implant restoration as well as addressing any repairs and maintenance needs in the future.
Want to know if you qualify for dental implants? Call (804) 326-5426 and schedule your consultation at Short Pump Family Dentistry today. Most patients in good general health are great candidates for dental implants. Some require bone grafting if the jawbone doesn’t have enough height and density to support the implant. At our Richmond dental practice, we always welcome the opportunity to help patients regain the smile they deserve.
