Broken, damaged, decayed and missing teeth can drastically alter the look, feel, and function of your smile, but dental implants provide a solution that can help. Dental prosthetics such as dentures, crowns and bridges are common methods used to replace tooth imperfections—but patients ultimately discover that the results from placing dental prosthetics alone aren’t always long lasting. The introduction of dental implants to dental patients in The Villages has brought about a stable, long-lasting alternative that enhances the effects of dental restoration techniques. Dental implants are designed to restore imperfections while effectively functioning as natural teeth.
The dental implants at Sumter Landing Dental Care are small, sturdy, titanium posts that are designed to replace the root structure of a naturally growing tooth. During the dental implant treatment, a small titanium metal rod is implanted into your bone, where it effectively fuses with the bone, providing stable support for any number of dental prosthetics. Once stabilized properly, dental implants are designed to hold a crown, bridge, or over-denture in place just like the root of a naturally grown tooth. Dental implants are used frequently to replace anywhere from a single tooth to a full set of teeth for a natural look and feel.
