Dental implants are a safe, durable replacement for missing teeth. They may be paired with replacement crowns for single tooth replacement. They may also be used to anchor bridges, partials, or dentures. Dr. Rutledge will collaborate with you to develop a plan based on your individual needs and preferences.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are an aesthetic, effective solution for tooth loss. There are many great benefits to choosing dental implants. Dental implants can:
-Restore your smile
-Improve your oral health
-Improve your speech
-Protect healthy bone structure
-Provide a long-term tooth replacement solution
There are several factors that Dr. Rutledge will consider before recommending dental implants. Some of these include:
-Adequate bone support to anchor the implant
-Healthy gum tissue
-Sinus and nerve location
-Overall health, including any chronic illnesses
To ensure the success of your implant(s), we work very closely with local periodontists. They will evaluate many factors to determine if you are a good candidate for long term success. The periodontist would place the implant(s) under the direction of Dr. Rutledge. Once the implant(s) is healed, Dr. Rutledge would utilize the implant(s) as intended in your customized treatment plan.
