Dental Implants at Stiles Family Dentistry
At Stiles Family Dentistry, we offer dental implants for patients that are looking to replace missing teeth and leave with a beautiful, natural looking smile. If you live in the Salem area and have experienced tooth loss, we encourage you to visit our office to discuss the options available to you.
There are many options for replacing missing teeth,but dental implants are by far the best. Implants give you the most long-lasting results, and they help preserve tooth-supporting bone that naturally deteriorates when a tooth is lost. Loss of bone is one of the major hidden consequences of losing teeth.
A dental implant most often takes the form of a small, screw-shaped titanium post that replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. The surgical procedure used to place an implant is actually quite minor and routine, requiring only local anesthesia in most cases. After a healing period, the implant is topped with a tooth-colored crown custom-made to match your existing natural teeth. Implants have a documented success rate of over 95%, which is significantly higher than any other tooth-replacement option.
