Charlotte, NC Dentist Restores Patients' Smiles With Dental Implants

When a patient is missing a tooth, or multiple teeth, the last thing he or she wants to do is settle for gaps in their smile. To help eliminate gaps, Dr. Richard Bateman, Charlotte, NC dentist, is proud to announce the availability of dental implants at Bateman Family Dentistry. Today, with advancements in dentistry, South Charlotte dental implants are frequently the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into a patient's jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. This cosmetic procedure is ideal for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or multiple teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, or other reasons. While dental implants in South Charlotte may be high-tech in nature, they are more tooth saving than traditional bridgework, since they do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

"No one ever wants to lose a tooth, yet alone multiple teeth. Thankfully, with advancements in dentistry, I am able to offer my patients the restoration they need to smile once again. Dental implants help me to maintain my patients' smiles so that they no longer need to be ashamed to smile," said Dr. Richard Bateman, Charlotte dentist.

Rather than resting on the gum line like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements that Dr. Bateman, South Charlotte dentist, surgically places in the jawbone. Dental implants are composed of titanium metal that "fuses" with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, and never slip or making embarrassing noises that advertise the fact that a patient has "false teeth." Additionally, dental implants do not decay like teeth that are used to anchor fixed bridges because they fuse to the jawbone, which helps to eliminate bone loss.

Whether a patient is young, middle-aged or an older adult, there is a dental implant solution available. By visiting Dr. Richard Bateman, dentist in South Charlotte, for an initial consultation, patients can better understand the best option available for restoring their smile. Like any dental restoration, dental implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a lifetime.

By offering dental implants, Dr. Bateman, dentist in Charlotte, NC, further proves his continual dedication and commitment toward making his patients smile for a lifetime.
