Thanks to the many advancements made in modern dentistry, including those used by our dentists at Richmond Dental Care, it’s possible to replace one or more missing teeth with dental implants that can last upward of 25 years. The treatment protocol does take longer than other tooth replacement options. Still, dental implants’ durability continues to make them a top choice for anyone seeking a long-lasting solution. If you’d like to learn more about dental implants from our dentists at Richmond Dental Care, we invite you to make an appointment today to receive answers to your questions.
Besides being one of the most long-lasting solutions for missing teeth replacement, dental implants are also one of the most natural-looking procedures to choose from. Depending on your missing tooth (or teeth) location, a tooth implant may be the best choice. Likewise, patients with multiple missing teeth may use a combination of tooth replacement treatments such as a dental bridge for the side or back of the mouth and a dental implant on the front of the mouth.
When you visit our dentist for your tooth implant consultation, we’ll design a treatment plan that takes durability, aesthetics, and treatment time into consideration. That way, you can decide what works best for your immediate goals and long-term goals. For example, if you’d like to have a replacement tooth in a matter of two appointments, a dental bridge might be the better choice. Still, if you opt for a dental implant, our dentists at Richmond Dental Care will provide a temporary tooth to fill in for your replacement tooth until the implant procedure is complete.
Our dentists and their teams at Richmond Dental Care are not only committed to providing solutions in smile makeovers, but they’re committed to gentle dentistry too. A dental implant is considered a more invasive treatment than a dental bridge or partial dentures. Still, with our focus on compassionate, gentle care, patients can enjoy the benefits that dental implants provide over other missing teeth replacement choices. Please give us a call today to learn more about dental implants from our dentists.
