How Dental Implants Mimic Your Natural Teeth Fort Mill, SC
Dental Implants Fort Mill SC

Whether you are replacing your favorite recliner or trying to replicate a famous painting, it can be very difficult to recreate the original version. However, when it comes to replacing a tooth, modern dentistry offers a solution that is remarkably close to the real thing. Dental implants are a gold standard in restorative dentistry due to their valued ability to replicate a natural tooth in function, form and feel.

What Sets Implants Apart

Dental implants certainly aren’t the only way to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Bridges, partials and dentures can also provide prosthetic teeth to fill in the gaps of your smile. However, implant dentistry takes teeth replacement to a whole new level – a deeper level that replaces the structure of the tooth above and below the gum line. A dental implant is distinguished for its ability to provide an artificial tooth root, which means your prosthetic tooth can achieve a level of stability and function just like your natural teeth.

Dental implants involve a titanium screw or post that is surgically placed into the underlying jawbone. Over time, the implant fuses to the surrounding bone to form a secure “root” for your prosthetic tooth. The abutment piece of the implant rests above the gum line and secures a crown, bridge or denture to your dental implant. These are restorations that can be customized in shape, color and size to match your natural smile.

What Can Implants Mean for You

Dental implants not only look and feel like real teeth, but they function like real teeth too. With implants, you won’t have to worry with extra maintenance regimes or fear that your fake teeth will fall out or come loose during everyday life.

By choosing dental implants, you can enjoy the following “real teeth” benefits:

  • No dietary restrictions
  • No special cleaning products or adhesive creams
  • No bone loss or premature facial aging
  • No worries that others know you have fake teeth

At Gold Hill Dentistry, we take tooth loss seriously. While it is always preferable to retain your natural teeth for a lifetime, we are proud to offer dental implants for patients that don’t find that possible. Regardless of the reason you have lost your real teeth, we can help. Dental implants can be your closest replica to your original smile!

Richard DeCristo

Dr. Sagunarthy is one of if not the best dentist I ever went to. He recently replaced a crown that was botched by another dentist and the procedure was done perfectly and painlessly. I first went to Gold Hill Dentistry for a second opinion on four crowns and maybe a root canal I needed asap from another dentist in Fort Mill. As it turned out I needed the crown replacement and only one other at a later date. That’s about $6000.00 I saved leaving this OTHER FORT MILL DENTIST. In addition to this wonderful dentist, the total staff is outstanding.

Midge Zimmerman

I have dental anxiety. I dreaded locating a dentist after recently moving to the area. I had gone to another dentist in the area but quickly changed to Gold Hill Denistry. Dr. Sagarnathy and staff are always kind, gentle and concerned with my well being. They also do a really good dental work. Other than routine work, I have had an implant, and chipped tooth repaired, all are doing well.
