Ready To Smile Again?

Are You Ready to Smile Again, Mint Hill?

This message from Town Dental Group in Mint Hill is about replacing missing teeth with dental implants.

There are people who refrain from smiling at all costs. Are you one of those who covers their mouth when laughing, or having your picture taken? It’s time to take care of those teeth problems and get a new lease on life.

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post.

One of the things that make dental implants so popular is that they blend in so easily with the patient’s remaining teeth. They look and function like natural teeth, and are an excellent, long-term option.

Another benefit of dental implants is that they prevent bone recession, which is common in people who have lost teeth. The titanium post goes where the tooth root used to be, which strengthens the bone.

For patients missing all of their teeth, implants can be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in  themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.

Dental implants are one of the most important advances in dentistry. To find out more about implants from Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, contact our office. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry, and children’s dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.

A Fresh Start After Losing A Tooth

Mint Hill Permanent Tooth ReplacementHave you had a tooth extracted? If the tooth had been bothering you, it may have been a relief. Unless, of course, it was in the front of your mouth and now the gaping hole shows every time you smile. At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, we can do something about that with a dental implant.

A dental implant is a permanent replacement for all parts of the tooth. It consists of three parts: the titanium post, the abutment, and the restoration.

The Titanium Post

  • Inserted directly into the jaw bone
  • Extremely strong
  • Titanium is unique in that it bonds with living bone tissue (also used in knee and hip replacement surgery)

The Abutment

  • Can be made of gold, porcelain or titanium
  • Permanently attached to the post (it will not slip and slide like dentures)

The Restoration (Crown)

  • Usually made of porcelain fused to a metal alloy (PFM)
  • Is made to match the color of surrounding teeth
  • Will look as good or better than the tooth it replaced

Dental implant are state-of-the art in tooth replacement. To find out if they are right for you, call us at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill. We also offer general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

What Does A Missing Tooth Say About You?

Mint Hill Mini-Implants When you meet someone who is missing a front tooth, what does that say to you? Do you wonder if they were in an accident? Do you start making assumptions about them? It is extremely unfair, but we are often judged (and misjudged) by our appearance. In the case of a missing tooth, a dental implant from Town Dental Group in Mint Hill can restore oral health and self-confidence.

Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Implants are titanium posts surgically implanted into a patient’s jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. They look and function like a natural tooth, and prevent the bone loss common to people who have lost a tooth.

Studies have shown that after more than 20 years, the vast majority of dental implants placed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons continue to function at peak performance. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.

The Town Dental Group in Mint Hill are providers of dental implants. We also offer our patients other cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as porcelain veneers. We have in-house specialists and extended evening and weekend hours for your convenience. Schedule an appointment with us today.
