Dental Implants at Beaufort River Dental Can Transform Your Life
A missing tooth or teeth does more than just have an effect on the appearance of your smile: it can have a tremendous impact on your oral and overall health, as well. The roots of a tooth not only hold it in place, but also provide vital signals to the bone tissue in your jaw, keeping it strong and healthy. When you lose a tooth, the lack of stimulation causes your jawbone to begin to deteriorate. As this atrophy continues, it can cause a whole host of issues as your surrounding teeth begin to shift. Left untreated, as your teeth shift further, your face will begin to appear sunken and aged beyond your years. Additional tooth loss will result if enough bone loss occurs, which only exacerbates further atrophy and tooth loss.
Fortunately, the titanium or ceramic posts of dental implants function as bionic tooth roots, providing the necessary signals to stop further bone loss and keep your jawbone healthy and strong. Dental implants from our Beaufort, SC, dentistry practice can restore both your appearance and your health. Whether you need to replace a single tooth or an entire dental arch, our dentist Dr. David Babb can help.

Advanced Technology and Techniques For More Predictable Results
Premium Dental Implants
We are proud to offer BioHorizons® and Ritter™ implants. BioHorizons' products are backed by millions of dollars in non-biased research based in the United States. Ritter Implants were designed in part by Dr. Maurice Salama, a world-renowned periodontist.
CEREC Scanning & Milling Technology
Our dentistry uses the advanced CAD-CAM system, enabling us to restore implants by placing an abutment and a durable IPS e.max® crown in a single appointment. Our use of the CEREC system allows patients to avoid having to wait two weeks or longer for a dental restoration from an off-site lab.
ACTEON® X-MIND® Trium CBCT
The latest digital imaging software allows us to determine whether patients are good candidates for dental implants by assessing the height, width, and quality of their jawbone. This incredibly low-radiation scan is also used to pre-plan implant placement and pinpoint the optimal position for the most predictable, natural-looking, and longest-lasting results.
3-D Printed Dental Surgical Guides
With the information provided by the digital imaging software used to plan a patients' dental implant placement, Dr. Babb can produce a unique 3-D printed surgical guide. This custom-crafted guide allows Dr. Babb to place implants quickly in the optimal location with pinpoint accuracy so that patients can enjoy the best possible outcome to their implant surgery.
"Absolutely fantastic!" Five-Star Google Review
Absolutely fantastic! I practiced dentistry for 40 years before retiring. My only hope is that I gave my patients the same welcoming and excellent care I received from Dr Babb and his wonderful staff yesterday. The hygienist, Callie is the best ever with her thorough gentle cleaning. The office is immaculate and totally updated to offer their patients the best in dental care. You will not be disappointed!View On Google
Dr. Babb and his team are the best in the low country. I drive all the way from Charleston to Beaufort for my appointments and it’s worth the trip. If you’re in the market for top notch care at an affordable price, look no further. Thanks, Beaufort River Dental Team!View On Google
Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
Lack of Jawbone Density
If you have been missing teeth for an extended period, you may have low bone density in your jaw. If this is the case, a bone grafting procedure can restore your candidacy.
It is no secret that smoking is bad for your health. Since smoking inhibits your body's ability to heal it increases your risk of implant failure. You will need to quit for several months before implant surgery.
To provide a stable platform for the titanium or ceramic implant posts your gums need to be healthy. If you have periodontal disease you will need treatment before you can receive implants
Other Health Concerns
Autoimmune disorders such as diabetes can increase risks during surgery and inhibit the healing process. Dr. Babb will review your medical history to ensure you are healthy enough to undergo implant surgery.
