Greenville, NC dentists, Drs. Laura Davila & Norberto Velazquez, are happy to offer dental implants—the rising star of restorative procedures.
GREENVILLE, NC, December 08, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Some people choose to simply live with missing teeth that have either fallen out or have been lost due to injury. But others prefer to fix the problem--for reasons of comfort or esthetic appeal. Dental implants are a common permanent solution to tooth loss.
Drs. Laura Davila & Norberto Velazquez of Drs. Davila & Velazquez, P.A. Dental Office in Greenville, North Carolina know firsthand how rewarding an experience it can be for a patient to finally get a permanent replacement tooth--especially after years of going without treatment. Living with a missing tooth can cause problems with eating, drinking and speaking. It can also make a patient insecure when going out in public, which can affect his or her overall emotional state. Dental implants are the best and most modern option for a permanent and secure replacement.
About Dental Implants
A patient's natural teeth stay in place because they are securely attached to the bone beneath the gums. A dental implant is a similar concept, only using metal and ceramic or plastic materials in place of tooth and bone. In Greenville, dental implant dentists, Drs. Davila & Velazquez, first install a "screw" beneath the gums, which needs time to heal into place. When the gums heal over the screw, they then set a natural-looking artificial tooth on top of the screw. The entire process takes a few appointments, including the initial exam.
With proper installation and maintenance an implant can last a lifetime. Regular cleanings and checkups are key to the long term success of dental implants.
"Besides the actual dental implant, my job is also patient education. Patients must understand that they can keep the implant for years if they take proper care of their teeth and gums," said Greenville, NC dentist, Dr. Velazquez.
"One of the most common reasons for missing teeth is poor oral health. I encourage my patients to brush and floss at least twice a day whether they have natural teeth or new dental implants," added Dr. Davila.
Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants in Greenville. The dentist must take X-rays to evaluate the amount of bone beneath the gums to ensure that the implant will remain in place. For dental implants, Greenville residents are encouraged to call the office of Drs. Davila & Velazquez to set up an initial appointment to find out if they are good candidates for this common procedure. Visit their website for more information: www.doctorsdandv.com
