Dental Implants by Charleston Dental Associates
Charleston Dental Associates offers dental implants to replace a missing tooth or teeth for our patients in James Island, West Ashley and North Charleston SC.
“A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium form an intimate bond to bone. Success or failure of implants depends on the health of the person receiving the treatment, drugs which affect the chances of osseointegration, and the health of the tissues in the mouth.” Wikipedia
