Surgically inserted into the jawbone, dental implants mimic the function of natural teeth – improving chewing efficacy and preventing jawbone deterioration.
According to some studies, around 50% of the US adult population has at least one tooth missing, with adults who are 65 years old and older having a higher chance of missing more teeth. When teeth are missing, the jawbone may begin to break down, causing further damage to the gums. While dentures can provide the appearance of natural-looking teeth, they cannot provide the function. As such, Dr. Andrew Wilson, one of the lead dentists at Cornerstone Dentistry, recommends dental implants for patients who still have a healthy jawbone.
Patients who already have dentures but want more secure fitting, or those who are not a good candidate for dental implants, may opt for implant-supported dentures instead. These medical devices use less material that covers the roof of the mouth, making it easier for patients to chew and smile more naturally.
When cared for properly, dental implants and implant-supported dentures may last for a lifetime. Dr. Wilson recommends that patients with dental implants or implant-supported dentures visit their dentist at least twice a year.
Cornerstone Dentistry serves residents from Anderson, Seneca, Clemson, Powdersville, Greenville, Easley, and Greenwood.
While walk-ins are welcome, priority will be given to those who schedule an appointment through the official website.
A spokesperson for the practice wrote, “Dental implants are small posts made of biocompatible materials that are surgically inserted into your jawbone to support a crown, bridge, or full denture. When cared for properly, they can be a lifelong solution to missing teeth.”
