Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are replacements for your tooth’s natural root, and can act as an anchor for dental crowns and other dental prosthetics. After discussing options with one of our doctors, a tooth implant may be the best option to solve a variety of dental issues you may be facing. And because our doctors will handle your oral care from the time of diagnosis until the completion of your treatment, you can trust that you are receiving the best recommendations and care from start to finish.
Benefits of dental implants include:
- Improved Appearance
- Increased Bite Function
- Easier to Talk
- Natural Look
- Improved Self-Esteem
Dental Implant Procedure
A tooth implant is a small titanium post inserted into the jaw bone where teeth are missing. Over time the bone and titanium bond together, functioning like a tooth root and establishing a secure foundation for artificial replacement teeth. After the implant has successfully fused with the jaw bone, the tooth implant is considered healed. A lifelike porcelain crown is then placed on top of the implant, serving as a “new” tooth. The entire process typically takes around 6-8 months.
Because implant dentistry is something we feel is important to our patients with missing teeth, we offer several specialized implant dentistry procedures that can streamline the dental implants treatment. We offer implant supported dentures, including same day dentures, an implant dentistry marvel as it gives us the opportunity to give you teeth in a day! Same day dentures are able to place the dental implants and restore them with dental crowns in one day!
We also use the CEREC system to give you beautiful, fully functioning dental crowns in a day! Using CEREC software and equipment, we are able to create high quality dental crowns while you wait.
The other bonus about getting implant dentistry procedures at Cary Family Dental is we do all the steps of the procedure in our comfortable office. Get to know our awesome team because we are here for you every step of the way. We are happy to offer you the familiarity of having your treatments done all in place.
Common Uses of Dental Implants
- Replacement of Individual Teeth | The doctor gently places the tooth implant where your natural tooth root would be, creating a sturdy foundation that can then support a beautiful dental crown to fill in the gap in your smile.
- Replace Multiple Teeth | If you happen to have several missing teeth or need extensive restorative dental care, we may recommend multiple dental implants and rebuild your smile with several dental crowns.
- Implant Supported Dentures | We also offer dental implant supported dentures, including the same day dentures procedure, which anchors the denture to four dental implants. Tooth implant supported dentures offer major benefits, including less worry about the maintenance and inconvenience of traditional dentures. You can now eat what you like and your dentures will always be fixed in place.
