Patient Testimonials
  • Azalea Dental is, without a doubt, the best dentist office I have ever been to. The staff is professional, courteous, and very easy to talk to and work with. They have televisions on the ceiling for crying out loud (I'm a former Army guy, so anything beyond whiskey and a stick to squeeze is good. Televisions on the ceiling is exceeding the standard).

How do dental implants work?

Losing just one tooth can lead to a series of events that can seriously compromise your overall oral health. The empty space left by a missing tooth gives surrounding teeth room to move into the void and surrounding bone can start to deteriorate.

It is important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible, and dental implants are a popular and effective solution. A dental implant is surgically placed in your jawbone and serves as a replacement root for the missing tooth.

First, we will refer you to a trusted local oral surgeon who places a titanium replacement root into your jaw. This is the underlying piece of the implant. Once the implant has been secured in the jaw bone, healing usually takes several months. When we’re familiar with your case, we’ll be able to give you a better estimate. After the bone heals, we anchor a replacement tooth like a crown, bridge, or denture to the implant.

Secure, durable dental implants have changed the way we look at tooth replacement, and there’s a lot to consider when thinking about having a dental implant placed. We encourage you to contact our Summerville dental office, and we’ll be happy to arrange a convenient consultation with Dr. Riley.
