Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

Replace your missing teeth with dental implants treatment in Yadkinville

Replace Your Missing Teeth with Dental Implants Treatment in Yadkinville Area

While no one likes the thought of losing a tooth, advances in dental technology allow dentists to provide realistic replacement teeth that look and feel just like your natural teeth. Dental implants are the best treatment option for your overall health because they replace the entire structure of your tooth. Patients in the Yadkinville area can contact Virtue Dental Care to learn all their options for restoring their smile.

Benefits of dental implants

A dental implant looks like a small screw, and it is placed directly into your jawbone, where it will fuse into place over the course of a few weeks. Once it is acclimated to your mouth, it can be used to support a dental crown, a bridge, or complete dentures. Dental implants prevent bone loss in your jaw and help your face maintain its natural shape. They also function just like your regular teeth, allowing you to eat and speak without issue.

When you are missing teeth in your arch, chewing is a lot more stressful for your jaw, and the uneven bite force increases the risk of fracturing a tooth or developing TMJ disorders. Your teeth also support each other to stay in place, and when one is gone, the others can shift around in your mouth, causing a crooked smile and increasing the risk of decay and infection. The cost of dental implants may be more than other treatment options, but they can last a lifetime with proper care.

Placing your implant

Dental implants require healthy gums and jawbone, and Dr. Virtue will determine if dental implants are the right treatment for your situation during your consultation.

Dental implants are typically placed a few weeks after tooth loss or extraction to allow your gums to heal. Once it has healed into place, you can return to the office to have an abutment placed and take impressions of your mouth to design your restoration. Dr. Virtue uses CERAC technology for same-day dental crowns, and dental bridges and dentures will be made in the lab. Once they are ready and in place, you resume your normal eating routine without worry.
