Dental Implants in Sylva, NC 

Missing teeth can make it difficult to chew and talk effectively. Traditional restorative options like crowns, bridges, and dentures can help, but none can fully give you back the smile you once had. That’s because they only replace the tooth (or teeth) you’ve lost and not the root that secured it to your jaw. To have the strong, stable smile you once had, you need a service like dental implants. As the most effective restorative service currently available, dental implants can help you by doing what those traditional services can’t.

Dental implants come in two parts: the crown and the implant post. The crown portion the way any other kind of crown does, while the implant post functions as a prosthetic root. What does all that mean for your smile? It means finally having a fully functional smile that will improve your smile’s appearance, its functionality, and your overall quality of life.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

The secret to what makes dental implants effective as a restorative option is the way your prosthetic root interacts with your jaw. Because implant posts are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible metal, they respond to the jaw by bonding with it. In other words, as time passes, the implant post your doctor inserts into your jaw will become just like a natural root, creating a firm foundation for your restored smile.

But Dr. McGuire can use dental implants to replace more than just a single missing tooth here and there. Dental implants can be combined with any traditional restorative service, like bridges, partials, or full dentures. No matter what your needs, dental implants can help.

Getting Started

But before Dr. McGuire can begin putting together your treatment plan, our Sylva office has to know that you’re a candidate for the implant procedure. That requires nothing more than a simple consultation visit at our office. During your consultation, Dr. McGuire will thoroughly assess the health of your teeth and gums, as well as the strength of your jaw. Once we have a complete understanding of how your smile’s doing, we can put together a plan that will give you exactly the kind of help you need.
