Dental implants may be the ideal solution to restore the beauty and functionality of 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. Lee, Dr. Huffman and Dr. Clark will ensure that your implants 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. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This functions like the missing tooth root. Because of the attachment, this ensures that your dental restoration is stable. If the patient requires IV sedation, Arden Dental Group works with oral surgeons in the area to place our patients’ posts in preparation for the restoration that we will complete.
Next a period of healing often is required, to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture or partial denture. Because all of our mouths are different, each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile exactly.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function and feel just like your natural teeth – and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.
