Dental Implants

Dental implants are the modern solutions for tooth loss.

Whatever the reason for your missing tooth or teeth— periodontitis, tooth decay, or injury— Sensational Smiles of Charleston can help. Dr. Richard Rutecki is a full service dentist who places implants and can help restore or enhance the look of your smile through this procedure. An astounding number of patients with missing teeth prefer restoration through this means, and it may be time you consider doing the same. Here’s a quick discussion on implants and why it may be the solution you need. 


Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically implanted into in the jaw, and act as an anchor to support restorations. Over the course of a few months, the appliance naturally integrates into your jawbone. This aspect alone makes it sturdier and more reliable than conventional dentures or bridges. The procedure is simple and results in beautiful implants that look and feel just like natural teeth. Implants can function as single tooth replacement, which has a crown cemented on top of it much the same as crowning a real tooth. The key fact here is that a missing tooth restored this way is a permanent cure. Implants and their crowns do not get future cavities like conventional crowns or bridges. Implants may also function to support and retain dentures or partials.
