Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants & How Can They Help? | The Smile Center Dental implants from The Smile Center can be the “next best thing” to replace your natural smile. When used as a sturdy foundation for dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures, the implants look, feel, and function like your own teeth. Most people forget they even have implants!

To find out if dental implants are right for you, call The Smile Center in Murrells Inlet SC at 843-491-5353 or Georgetown SC at 843-492-5026.

Dental Implant Benefits

Benefits of implants include:

  • Ease of care. You typically care for implants just like your natural teeth.
  • Strong bite: Unlike dentures, which can slip, implants stay put. So you can enjoy all of your favorite foods.

How Dental Implants Work

Our Murrells Inlet SC and Georgetown SC dentists embed a tiny titanium rod into your jawbone. When the bone heals, the rod functions like a tooth root. We attach a piece of hardware called an abutment to your implant. Finally, we attach a restoration like a dental crown or dentures to the abutment.

Implants can replace single teeth or multiple teeth, depending on the placement of the implants and the restorations used.

Your Personalized Dental Implant Plan

Thanks to Dr. John Miller’s expertise and advanced training with implants, The Smile Center offers numerous options, including:

  • Mini dental implants. These can work even if you lack enough bone density for full-size implants.
  • Dental implants with implant-supported dentures or implant-retained dentures. Dentures can be attached to your implants in one of these two ways, both of which offer a more secure fit than traditional dentures.

Dental implants may be the right tooth replacement option for you! For a consultation, call The Smile Center at 843-491-5353 in Murrells Inlet SC or 843-492-5026 in Georgetown SC. Or use our online form for an appointment at either of our two locations.
