Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums and are used to replace missing teeth.  Dental implants have the ability to make a difference in your smile as well as boost your confidence.  With advances in technology, our doctors at Wando Family Dentistry in Mt. Pleasant, SC can use implants to replace a single tooth or combined or replace an entire arch. In order to receive implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone structure to keep the implant in place.

Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, therefore nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, leaving more of your own teeth intact. Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. Because dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, they become a part of you, delivering a more confident smile.

The following are just a handful of benefits that make dental implants an investment worth considering:
  • Restores smile
  • Boosts confidence
  • Allows you to eat foods that are difficult or impossible with missing teeth or dentures.
  • Follow your usual dental care routine (brush your teeth like you would with natural teeth).
  • An investment that lasts a lifetime with proper care and maintenance (full and partial dentures may require frequent replacements – especially as your bone shrinks).
If you’re considering dental implants for one or more missing teeth you owe it to yourself to discuss your concerns with one of our doctors.

There are a few options when it comes to straightening your teeth. Invisalign is one option that combines 100 years of orthodontics science with advanced 3-D computer graphics technology.
Your teeth are straightened with Invisalign braces without the need for brackets or wires. This procedure uses removable, customized,. and clear aligners that are almost undetectable so you can walk around knowing that your teeth are being straightened without having a mouth full of metal. At Wando Family Dentistry in Mt. Pleasant, we take pride in giving you this option.

Your Customized Invisalign Treatment Plan
You will begin your treatment by setting up an initial consultation with Mt. Pleasant, dentist Dr. Cason Hund. After that you will:
  • Discuss your specific case with Dr. Hund to see if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
  • Dr. Hund takes pictures, x-rays and impressions of your teeth creating a digital 3-D image.
  • He creates a series of clear, custom-made aligners specifically for you based on your personalized treatment plan.
  • You change your aligners every couple weeks or so which advances you to your next treatment stage.
Follow up with us every six weeks or so for Dr. Hund to monitor your progress. On each visit, you can see the progress of your teeth and how close your new smile is. Contact us at our Mt. Pleasant, SC dental office at 843-972-9700 to set up your consultation with our dentist and see if Invisalign braces are ideal for you. Since they are comfortable to wear, easy to use and almost undetectable, you won't be disappointed and will leave our office feeling confident and happy.
