Keep your smile friendly and complete with a dental implant

An important benefit of receiving a dental implant in Charleston is to preserve the natural bone in your mouth. An implant is placed into the jawbone through a small hole in the gum tissue and attaches securely with an abutment and crown. The abutment is torqued into place with a specialized and calibrated implant torque wrench. This ensures long-lasting fixation of the abutment attachment.

Making a difference through dentistry

Dr. Costa and Dr. Williams insist on a trusting connection with their patients. They have a genuine desire to form lasting friendships with their patients and perform dental treatments in a setting that feels more like a second home than an impersonal, sterile clinic. The goal is to set patients at ease and create an environment where every individual can experience respect, trust, compassion, and peace of mind.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for those looking to improve their oral health. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants are permanently integrated into your jaw, like your natural teeth, providing a stable and secure base for replacement teeth. One of the main benefits of dental implants is that they help preserve the jawbone’s integrity. Dental implants mimic the roots of natural teeth and stimulate the surrounding bone, helping to prevent bone loss and maintain the natural shape of the face and smile.

Dental Implant Benefits & Oral Health

Dental implants are a great way to keep a single tooth issue isolated to a single tooth. Instead of involving the teeth next to a space, as would be done with a bridge, the dental implant simply replaces the missing tooth and allows for a simple, functional, and aesthetically pleasing result.

Another benefit of dental implants is that they are durable and long-lasting. They can last for many years with proper care and maintenance, making them an effective solution for improving oral health. When dental implants are planned and executed properly, they can be a life-changing treatment, allowing for chewing, talking, and smiling with confidence.

Creating stunning restorations from scratch while you wait

Dr. Costa and Dr. Williams craft restorations onsite. Using a finely honed eye for balance, color, shape, and texture, they create each restoration by hand, elevating the process to an art form. Whether it is a veneer, implant, crown, or bridge, the final outcome appears entirely natural and organic, as though it is your own tooth. Both dentists derive great joy from the process of creating restorations and go above and beyond to deliver a result that you will cherish for years to come.

Recovery After Dental Implants

After dental implant surgery in Charleston, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort around the implant site. This can be managed with pain medication and ice packs. The initial healing phase takes about 7-10 days, and full integration with the jawbone can take several months. Soft foods and liquids are advised initially, gradually transitioning to solid foods.

Proper oral hygiene is crucial, and your dentist will provide instructions for gentle cleaning. A temporary prosthesis may be used during healing. Follow post-operative instructions, attend follow-up visits, and maintain oral hygiene for a successful recovery and implant integration.
