Graham, NC (PRWEB) July 24, 2013
Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jerome Crayle recently introduced dental implants in Graham, NC for patients seeking permanent, healthy smiles. Patients who suffer from decayed, worn or missing teeth no longer have to rely on the many inconveniences associated with removable devices such as dentures. Dr. Crayle is pleased to provide this new permanent procedure to his dental patients because of the many benefits linked to dental implants.
Dental implants are strong, secure and long lasting. Dental implants bond with the existing bone, support teeth firmly, reduce pain during talking and eating, can reduce bone loss and are aesthetically appealing. Before the new root-form implants were created, most dental implants were either blade implants (the metal piece placed within the bone resembled a flat blade) or subperiosteal implants (a framework which included attached screws to the jawbone).
“This is one of dentistry’s most exciting advances,” said Dr. Jerome Crayle, dental implants dentist in Graham, NC. “Dental implants significantly improve patients’ oral and psychological health by giving them a natural, permanent, healthy and confident smile.”
Most often made of titanium, dental implants replace the root. At the first visit, Dr. Crayle takes X-rays and impressions of the jaw and teeth. The impressions indicate the exact space available for the implant. At another appointment, the implant is surgically placed into the bone. After a period of time (up to six months) allowed for healing and to amalgamate to the bone, artificial teeth are made, fit and placed. Fitting may require many visits over several months to ensure exactness.
Along with his staff of skilled dental hygienists and assistants, Jerome M. Crayle DDS provides a variety of dental services including cleanings, fillings and extractions along with more specialized services like cosmetic dentistry, dental surgery and pediatric dentistry.
