We Help Dental Implant Candidates Rebuild Their Smiles
Dental implants are an excellent restorative option for the support of dental restorations. These titanium posts are surgically inserted within your jaw, where they mimic the function of natural tooth roots. Dental implants provide a variety of benefits for the right candidates. Drs. Jeffrey Emmi and Laura Dougherty work closely with patients to determine the best restorative treatments to meet their needs. To learn more about what characterizes dental implants candidates, contact our Wilmington office today.
A consultation with our dentists is the surest way to determine if dental implants are right for your needs. In general, dental implant candidates:
Are missing one or more teeth.
Desire a long-lasting solution to tooth loss.
Are tired of having their traditional dentures or other restorations feel unstable or slip out of place.
Want to be able to eat all the foods they love, including apples and steaks.
Have enough bone structure to support an implant. For patients who have experienced some jaw bone atrophy in the absence of tooth roots, we also provide bone grafting.
Dental implants recipients should be in good overall oral health. Patients who wish to have dental implants placed must have any decay or periodontal issues addressed before surgery. Smile Solutions by Emmi Dental Associates offers a full range of restorative treatments to correct these issues.
Restoring Implants with Crowns, Bridges, and Dentures
Dental implants can support several types of restorations, including:
Dental Crowns: These single-tooth restorations are most often used to restore teeth treated for trauma or decay, but can also restore a dental implant in the event of tooth loss.
Dental Bridges: Bridges, also called partial dentures, comprise several dental crowns fused together to fill the space left by one or more consecutive missing teeth.
Full dentures: Full dentures restore all of the teeth on your upper arch, lower arch, or both. They are custom-crafted to look completely natural, while providing balance and functionality.
Each of the dental prostheses we provide is made from high-quality, durable material. We know that the look of your new smile is important, so we take extra care to customize your restorations.
Affording Dental Implants
If our dentists find that dental implants are a good solution for you, we will thoroughly discuss your options to determine a plan that meets your needs and your budget. Dental implants are not typically covered by insurance. However, because they offer potentially life-changing benefits, we are happy to work with our patients to place this solution comfortably within their budgets. We accept cash and credit cards, and also also offer financing options like CareCredit℠. This medical credit line allows you to make low monthly payments, with no-interest and fixed-interest options. Let us help you determine what type of financing is best.
