At the office of Dr. Erin E. Pruitt, we keep pace with the latest advances in the field of implant dentistry to help patients with missing teeth reestablish beautiful, complete smiles. Our 29601 dental implants represent the most advanced solution for the replacement of missing teeth, coming as close as possible to recreating the look, feel and function of natural teeth. Our team keeps you informed and at ease throughout your course of care, and personalizes treatment to meet your individual needs.
According to the American College of Prosthodontists, 120 million people across the United States are missing at least one tooth, and 36 million are completely edentulous. As we all know, losing your teeth can occur for a number of reasons, including periodontal disease, injury or tooth decay, and the prevalence of tooth loss is shown to increase with age. If you are among the millions of people living with missing teeth, 29601 dental implants can dramatically improve your health, self-image and overall quality of life. A dental implant is a small post made of biocompatible materials, which integrates with your jawbone to support a dental prosthesis. Since dental implants provide the same stimulation to the surrounding tissues as the roots of natural teeth, placing an implant after a tooth is lost or extracted helps preserve bone mass in the jaw surrounding the edentulous area. Moreover, an individual implant can support a customized dental crown, just as your natural tooth root supports your tooth. Implants can also replace multiple missing teeth or a completely edentulous upper or lower arch, and in such cases will be restored with a fixed bridge or customized overdenture.
With 29601 dental implants, you’ll be able to once again smile, eat and speak with the confidence and ease you deserve. At the office of Dr. Erin E. Pruitt, we always provide precise and compassionate care, making treatment with dental implants a worry-free experience. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
