In America today, almost half the adult population has at least one missing tooth.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PRWEB) June 10, 2020
Restorative dentists, Drs. Steven White and Brad Haines of White and Haines Advanced Dentistry, welcome new and existing patients in the Charlotte, NC area to receive dental implants at their modern facility. This team regularly sees and treats patients with single or multiple missing teeth. When appropriate, the dentists frequently recommend replacing their lost, damaged or decayed teeth with permanent and natural-looking dental implants.
In America today, almost half the adult population has at least one missing tooth. When a single tooth falls out or is extracted, it leaves a gap in the smile. This gap can lead to the shifting of adjacent teeth as well as difficulty eating and speaking. On a less obvious level, the gap presents problems below the gum line. Without a tooth to stimulate healthy bone growth, the jawbone will begin to reabsorb leading to lowered bone density and a sunken-in and older appearance around the jaw and cheeks.
Dental implants provide a permanent solution for those affected by missing teeth. Using modern equipment including the PaX-i3D cone beam CT system for panoramic x-rays and 3D scans normally only provided in a hospital, Drs. White and Haines can precisely plan the position to surgically place each implant. The foundation of the implant, the implant post, is then placed in the jawbone for maximum long-term stability. In many cases, this team is able to attach a temporary crown on the same day so patients can leave with a complete and functional smile. After a few months, a final, lifelike restoration is placed to create a seamless smile that matches the unique facial aesthetics and personality of each patient.
As one of their patients who will be receiving dental implants soon has noted, “I came in and had the 3D scan done. I’m really excited about this technology, not only because it’s far more comfortable as a patient, but it’s going to enable Dr. White to precisely position the implants. At White and Haines Dentistry, they do everything within their power to make the patient extremely comfortable.”
