Highlands, NC (PRWEB) November 19, 2015
Dr. Joseph H. Wilbanks welcomes new patients with missing teeth in Highlands, NC to receive cutting-edge implant dentistry without the necessity of a referral. Dr. Wilbanks is excited to offer high-quality dental implants at his Toccoa, GA office to patients who are suffering from the negative repercussions of missing teeth. Implants provide a permanent, aesthetically pleasing alternative to bridges and dentures.
Dental patients can end up losing one or more teeth as a direct result of advanced gum disease, genetics, side effects to certain medications, and accidents and sports related injuries. What many patients do not realize is that missing teeth should be filled promptly in order to avoid complications that can make it more difficult to receive implant dentistry. When empty sockets are left unfilled for too long, the jawbone can degrade and make dental implants more difficult to place. In cases where the jaw has experienced significant loss of bone, patients may need to receive bone grafts before they can qualify for implants.
When implants are placed promptly after a tooth is lost, there is less likelihood that patients will need to receive a bone graft, because their jawbone will not have time to degrade significantly. Additionally, when implants are placed promptly, patients will not need to worry about their teeth shifting to fill in gaps where their missing teeth once were. Patients who are missing one or more teeth are encouraged to quickly schedule an appointment with Dr. Wilbanks and find out if they qualify for implant placement.
Unlike dentures, which are designed to be placed topically on the gums, implants are surgically placed inside the jawbone for maximum strength and durability. An implant is designed to function just like a natural tooth, and should last a lifetime with proper care. Patients who seek an alternative to dentures that provides more stability and allow you to eat the foods you love without hesitation, are encouraged to find out if implants are a better choice for their situation.
All dental patients who need dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth in Highlands, NC, are invited to schedule an appointment to receive implant dentistry in Toccoa, GA from Dr. Wilbanks. An appointment may be easily scheduled by calling Wilbanks Smile Center.
