Receive Your New Smile From Implant Experts

Teeth implants act as replacement tooth roots the support your natural-looking new teeth. Dr. Miller has been restoring his patients’ smiles for over 30 years. Teeth implants are one of the greatest methods he has at his disposal.

At your initial consultation, we’ll cover all your implant options and help you decide which one will work best for your unique situation. We will use our 3-D CT scanner, the X-Mind Prime, to take detailed images of your jaw. This way, we can plan your entire procedure before it begins. At The Smile Center, we offer a variety of solutions for your smile:

  • Individual Implant Crowns – After placing an implant in your jaw and allowing it to fuse with your bone, we’ll top the implant with a beautiful new crown. It’s usually made from porcelain, although other materials are also available. It will fill the gap in your smile and make eating easier.
  • Implant Bridges – We can use this type of bridge to replace several missing teeth in a row. Your new bridge will anchor to two or more implants embedded in your jaw. They will provide a sturdy base that gives you excellent stability and renewed chewing power.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures – If you’ve only worn conventional dentures, you’re going to love these replacement teeth. Your dentures will fasten to dental implants using a snap-and-ball system. They’ll stay securely in place without slipping, clicking, or popping out. They remove easily for daily cleaning.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – Relax and enjoy eating again with these comfortable dentures. They anchor to a fixed bar that is attached to teeth implants. The bar setup makes them our sturdiest and most comfortable dentures because it transfers the forces of biting and chewing to your jawbone rather than your gums.
  • Mini Dental Implants – If your jawbone is weak and not able to support standard implants, then minis may work for you. They are similar in structure to standard implants, but smaller and require less healthy bone material. Their healing period is also shorter and more comfortable.

It’s time to find out how Murrells Inlet dental implants can improve your life. Call us today at 843-491-5353 to schedule your consultation. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that Dr. Miller here at The Smile Center inserts in your jaw where your teeth are missing. After a healing period in which they bond with your jawbone, the implants will be ready to have new replacement teeth secured to them. Soon you will have a complete smile again and be able to bite and chew easily.

Do dental implants hurt?

Having a dental implant placed is not painful because your jaw will be numbed, and you can stay completely relaxed with dental sedation throughout the procedure. Once you go home, you might require pain relievers for a day or two, but most of our patients report only taking over-the-counter medication following their dental implant procedure. Most feel well enough to return to work the day after.

How much do dental implants cost?

Your exact cost for getting dental implants will depend on several factors, including the number of implants needed, their location, and the type of replacement teeth you get. We’ll be happy to work up a treatment plan and provide you with an accurate cost for your implant treatment so you can decide what’s best for your situation.
