Have you been thinking about getting a dental implant, but you’re not sure of everything involved? Asheville Periodontics is here to answer all of your questions. If your general dentist has alerted you to a tooth that needs to be extracted, or if you are already missing one or more teeth, a dental implant may be the best solution for you.
If a tooth must be extracted, it is usually recommended that it be replaced with a dental prosthetic (implant, bridge, or denture) to avoid breakdown of the bite. A “false” tooth replacement can be customized to work with the remaining teeth to restore proper function and help maintain the position of the existing natural teeth.
At Asheville Periodontics & Dental Implants, we are excited to schedule an initial consultation for you to learn about your dental health and discuss all of your options with you.
