Free Dental Implant Consultation in Greer, SC
If you are considering replacing missing or broken teeth with dental implants, we would love to offer you a complimentary consultation to go over your treatment options. While we do everything we can to save your natural teeth, dental implants can be an incredible option to replace missing or failing teeth.
A dental implant is an artificial root that is engineered to replicate the tooth root that it replaces. Dental implants come in a number of different shapes and sizes; it is important for the implant to replicate the tooth that is being replaced.
At your initial implant consultation, our experienced team will begin by reviewing your medical history. Diabetes, tobacco use, and certain medications can impact the success of dental implants, so it is important for our team to record a thorough medical history.
Next, we will complete an oral exam where we will look at the condition of your remaining teeth and gums. Healthy periodontal tissue, also known as your gum tissue, is very important for long lasting dental implants because your gum tissue provides a protective barrier against oral bacteria.
After completing a diagnostic checklist, our dentists will discuss what your end goal is and how we can help you achieve that result. At this point, we will formulate a treatment plan that will include a timeline and financial obligations for treatment. We accept most dental insurances, and our financial coordinators will discuss your options prior to making any commitments.
As part of the treatment plan, we often recommend a 3D x-ray that will allow us to digitally plan the implant procedure. This technology allows for a better implant, fewer complications, a quicker procedure, and quicker healing time. After placing the implant, it takes the body four months to fuse to the titanium surface. Once the body has healed to the implant, a porcelain crown can be placed on the implant.
Hundreds of implant companies manufacture implants today. It is important to know what brand of dental implant is being placed by your dentist. We are proud to place Nobel Implants because they have the research and support to ensure a long lasting tooth replacement.
Dr. Adam Carraway completed an intensive General Practice Residency at the Dental College of Georgia where he trained extensively in the placement of dental implants. He is knowledgeable in many aspects of dentistry and able to discuss the best treatment options available in modern dentistry.
