Millions of Americans struggle with tooth loss during their lifetime. Whether it’s due to gum disease, tooth decay, injuries sustained while playing sports, or as a result of an accident, this is a common issue which plagues many American families.

Until recently, dentists in Clemson, SC had limited options for correcting and treating patients who had missing teeth. In most cases, patients had to choose between having a fixed bridge installed in their mouth, or choosing to use removable partials or complete dentures for the rest of their lives.

Luckily, recent advancements in modern dental procedures have allowed dentists in your community to begin offering dental implants as a permanent solution to lost teeth.

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a permanent replacement tooth. The implant serves as a replacement for the roots of the tooth and provides a stable foundation for any additional fixed or removable teeth.

The dental implant is surgically inserted into the lower or upper jaw, which allows the replacement teeth to fit securely into the gums and imitate the appearance and feel of natural teeth.

Ask Dr. Layne about how dental implants can provide a convenient solution to your dental issues. The trusted and caring staff at Carolina Oaks Dental Care are here to help you get the dental care you need to give you a confident and radiant smile.

Are Dental Implants Successful Replacements for Natural Teeth?

Overall, dental implants have an extremely high success rate of 98%.

However, it’s important to note the success of a dental implant relies heavily on the patient, and how well they care for their replacement teeth. It is important to treat your dental implants as though they are your own, natural teeth, and to practice regular brushing and flossing to keep the surrounding teeth and gums healthy.

How Do Patients Benefit from Dental Implants?

Choosing to have a dental implant procedure offers a variety of positive benefits, including:

  • Convenience. One of the biggest complaints that we hear from denture wearers is that dentures are inconvenient. Permanent dental implants look and feel like your natural tooth and are cared for similarly, so no inconveniences!
  • Ease of eating. Many patients who have dentures struggle to eat properly, but dental implants make chewing and swallowing as natural as possible.
  • Improved speech. Some denture wearers struggle to speak while their dentures are in place. Dental implants enable more streamlined and natural feeling replacement teeth.
  • Increased comfort. Dental implants mimic the feel and appearance of natural teeth and prevent the discomfort that dentures may cause a patient.

“I was very impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone was. I love the location, its very convenient to where I work so making it very easy to visit during my lunch hour. Just a great experience, would definitely recommend”

Scott M

“After moving around the country the last few years I am embarrassed to admit making time for dentist appointments was not a high priority. I went in for a check up and cleaning today and they made me feel very comfortable and welcome. My cleaning was more than a bit over due and I was expecting
to be very sore after. Just the opposite, she was very gentle and understating of my procrastination. I made my next appointments with no hesitation. Pleasant experience and that says a lot when it refers to a dentist appointment”
