Dental implants - Asheville Periodonist

Healthy, attractive teeth and surrounding gums enhance your smile. In turn your smile enhances your presentation and self confidence. No less important, teeth are essential for proper chewing function and clear speech.

Although there are multiple ways to replace missing teeth, dental implants can be the best option, whether you are missing just one or multiple teeth.

An implant is a titanium post that is placed into the jaw bone. It becomes your “new root.” After the implant has healed (fused to the bone) your general dentist will create the final restoration that applies to you. You then will have a replaced tooth (or teeth) that look, feels, and functions comfortably.

Don’t suffer from missing teeth, annoying dentures or lengthy bridges. We will thoroughly discuss all your options.
