Dental implants may be ideal to restore your smile.

Wondering about implants in Arden, North Carolina? Are you missing one or more teeth? If dental implants are right for you, Arden Dental Group’s Dr. Deines, Dr. Huffman and Dr. Clark will ensure that they fit your mouth comfortably and aesthetically.

Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or all of the teeth. They are made of two parts, the post and the replacement tooth. The post is made of titanium. It is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. Because of the placement in the jawbone, the implant functions like the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. Arden Dental Group works with local surgeons to place our patients’ posts in preparation for the restoration that we will complete.

Next a period of healing often is required, because the bone needs to bond with the post. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the replacement tooth. This fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture or partial denture. Each dental restoration is custom made to fit your smile exactly.

Because implants look just like your teeth, replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function and appearance. This is a great option for restoring your smile because the dental restoration is designed to look, function and feel just like your natural teeth. With proper care, this treatment can last a lifetime.
