No one should have a gap in their smile because they lost a tooth. Not only does it look unappealing, it threatens your dental health as a whole. A common treatment is getting a dental implant, which includes an artificial tooth root placed in your jawbone. This gives the restoration the same strength and stability as your natural teeth.
But what happens if the bone under that gap is too thin or weak? That’s when you should call our South Carolina dental offices (Murrells Inlet at 843-507-5219 or Georgetown at 843-507-5064) and discuss getting a mini dental implant. These can be used where regular implants cannot, so you can start enjoying the benefits described below.
