As a general dentist, Dale Probst, DMD offers a full range of dental services for patients of all ages in the Charleston and James Island, SC area. At a minimum, come to us for cleanings and exams twice a year. From there, we’re able to help you protect and preserve your natural teeth through a variety of treatments and procedures. These include fillings, crowns, and root canals. We’ll also help repair chipped or cracked teeth. Plus, we provide implant placement and restorations as well as tissue re-contouring for gum recession and bone grafting procedures.
Dental implants are considered one of the greatest advancements of modern dental medicine and have an outstanding record of success. Quite often, strategically placed dental implants are a valuable aid in preserving natural teeth in challenging situations. Since 1995, Dr. Probst has trained and practiced in dental implant and bone grafting techniques. He’s successfully provided dental implant placement and maintenance to many patients over the years.
A dental implant serves as an artificial tooth root that reestablishes connection with the jaw. This root holds a replacement crown or bridge in place and can be used to replace one, some, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dental implants can also help someone whose teeth are in need of a serious makeover.
Today’s dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling that you may forget you ever lost a tooth! If you’re missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak, and eat again with comfort and confidence, dental implants may be the answer. Under proper conditions, implants can last a lifetime.
Gum Recession Treatments
Dr. Probst also offers gum recession treatments to improve the health and appearance of your gums. Receding gums can cause your smile to not look its best. Gum problems can also lead to tooth decay, pain, and a loss of gum tissue. If you have receding gums, there are gum rejuvenation techniques to help save your gums and teeth and to stop further gum recession. Today’s gum recession treatments are more comfortable and offer faster results than traditional gum grafting.
