How Dental Implants Make Things Better

Welcome back to another edition of our Total Dental Care of South Carolina blog.

There is nothing we like to see more than the people of Columbia, SC out enjoying the autumn sun, sharing radiant, healthy smiles with one another.

That’s why we have made it our mission to get you a better smile both in terms of health and appearances.

We know that if you are missing teeth, you will be self-conscious and a bit apprehensive about talking and laughing around others.

You won’t be crazy about your new look, that’s for sure.

You will also have trouble eating, especially high-fiber items.

That’s never good because fiber is a necessary component to a balanced diet.

The health benefits are numerous and can keep your heart, blood sugar, and propensity for strokes in check.

Dietary fiber also helps protect your teeth from decay by producing saliva when you chew it.

Bet you didn’t know that!

The problem is that, in order to chew it, you have to have a full set of strong teeth.

Tooth decay and missing teeth can reduce your ability to properly chew on fiber-rich options like fruits and vegetables.

In fact, chewing such things becomes downright painful.

So, what are you supposed to do about healthy food choices if your oral health isn’t exactly in great shape?

Our solution is dental implants from Total Dental Care of South Carolina.

Dental Implants In Columbia, SC

Tooth loss, for any reason, is never fun.

It can be painful and embarrassing.

After tooth loss occurs, it is important for you to find a solution that can provide strength and stability.

Implants fit the bill because they are designed around a secure and permanent replacement root for the artificial tooth you will receive.

They can you the biting power you need to chew on high-fiber foods, and other things that you’ve been missing.

What’s more, they will match your natural teeth and can restore the normal look of your smile.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Thanks to modern dentistry techniques, restoring your mouth to full function and beauty is now a comfortable, convenient process.

At Total Dental Care of South Carolina, it all begins with a discussion about your goals and preferences.

Our Columbia, SC dental team will perform a comprehensive examination of your mouth and jaw to determine whether you are a good candidate for implant placement.

Placing your dental implants is a multi-step process at our office.

The implant “root” is surgically embedded into your jawbone, and the area is allowed to heal for a couple of months so that complete fusion can take place.

Once your bone and gums have healed, the abutment is attached to the implant.

Finally, the custom crown is attached to the abutment, this is the part that will be visible.

Then, you are free to live your life normally and happily!
