Fill Gaps in Your Smile With Dental Implants in Georgetown

Dental implants in Georgetown are the next best thing to your natural smile. By using these artificial tooth roots as a sturdy foundation for dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures, your new smile will look, feel, and function better than ever. Most people forget they even have implants! You’ll enjoy many benefits:

  • Ease of Care – You typically care for implants just like your natural teeth.
  • A Strong Bite – Unlike dentures, which can slip, implants stay put. You can enjoy all your favorite foods without fear of your replacement teeth coming loose.
  • Added Confidence – You’ll smile more freely when you’re not worried about your teeth slipping when you laugh or speak.
  • Versatility – No matter how many teeth you’re missing, implants can fill out your smile.
  • Stronger Jaw – Since implants stimulate your jaw in a way similar to tooth roots, you won’t lose bone density. Your jaw will stay strong and healthy.

Get Optimal Results With a Personalized Dental Implant Treatment Plan

Dr. John Miller has extensive training with implants, so he can help determine if they are right for your smile. Because he both places and restores implants, you can get your entire dental implants procedure right in our office. In addition, our 3-D CT scanner will provide detailed images of your jaw so we can plan your entire procedure ahead of time.

Because of his expertise and advanced training with implants, we offer numerous options, including:

  • Single Implant With a Dental Crown – An implant restored with a dental crown is the perfect replacement for a single missing tooth. It will blend easily into your smile.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – A traditional dental bridge requires us to drill into healthy teeth. Anchoring a bridge with implants eliminates the need to do so. Like a traditional fixed bridge, an implant-supported bridge won’t need to be removed for cleaning.
  • Mini Dental Implants – These can work even if you lack enough bone density for full-size implants.
  • Implant Dentures – You can receive implant-supported dentures or implant-retained dentures. Both offer a more secure fit than traditional dentures.

We Can Build Up Your Bone for Implants If Necessary

While mini dental implants can work well if you lack enough bone strength for a traditional implant placement, they aren’t right for every smile situation. Dr. Miller can also perform oral surgery procedures to prepare your jaw for implants. You may benefit from:

  • Bone Grafts – This procedure strengthens your jaw by adding bone or bonelike material.
  • Sinus Lifts – We can create more room for implants in your upper jaw with this treatment.
  • Ridge Augmentations – A bit more extensive than a typical bone graft, this procedure beefs up your jaw strength and restores the contours of your gumline.

Dental implants in Georgetown may be the right tooth replacement option for you! Call 843-492-5026 today to schedule a consultation with your experienced implant dentist. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small posts made from titanium that Dr. Miller inserts into your jawbone to serve as replacement teeth roots. If you are missing one or more teeth, implants function as a base for several types of new replacement teeth, including crowns, bridges, dentures, and full arches of fixed teeth.

Are dental implants painful?

Our patients usually experience only mild discomfort after getting their new implants. Your dentist will use local anesthesia with The Wand® to ensure your mouth is numb and you don’t feel any pain. Plus, we offer sedation to help you relax and eliminate any dental anxiety you may experience.

Can dental implants be removed?

Dental implants could be removed from your jaw, but there is seldom any reason to do so. Once placed, implants fuse with your jawbone and become one with it. They are designed to last for decades, and maybe even the rest of your life, without requiring any special care or maintenance.
