When you've got teeth missing due to decay or other dental dysfunction, you know the hit it can take on your smile. After all, any smile that has important parts missing - aka your teeth - is sure to turn heads for all the wrong reasons.

At Joseph R. Hendrick, Jr., DDS, PA, you'll find the answer you need for your smile with dental implants, which are synthetic devices Dental Implantsplaced in your mouth as a substitute for your tooth root that typically get covered by an artificial tooth later. Using the expert dental techniques of Dr. Hendrick and his group of trusted dental technicians, you'll be able to achieve the smile you've been without for too long already!

One of the leading concerns about dental implants involves whether or not they can function alongside your neighboring teeth. The truth is, implants won't be rejected by your body because they aren't made up of living cell organisms or genetically-created material.

Specifically, they are made from titanium (which is fully biocompatible), a material that is very resistant to causing allergies in patients.

That being said, dental implants can prove to be an imperfect match for your mouth if you fail to exercise proper oral hygiene after one's been placed, as infections can cause it to be rejected by your body. Also, biting down on it too soon can cause issues with your body accepting an implant. Fortunately, rejections of dental implants happen less than five percent of the time.

You can feel sure about your body's chances for accepting upcoming dental implants by speaking with your trusted dentist at Dr. Hendrick's office in Shelby, NC. While the vast majority of dental patients are prime candidates for implants, give the office a call today at (704) 484-0077 and find out how you can get that perfect grin back in your mouth!
