Dental Implants in the Triangle
Many of our patients make the drive from Chapel Hill to come to our office because they know we’re highly skilled and successful at implant dentistry. The advances in implant dentistry over the years have transformed the way in which patients’ teeth can be restored and reconstructed. Implants can be used to stabilize and restore a person’s smile, and help them chew and speak more confidently. They are typically better than the older alternatives of dentures or bridges, because they are more natural-feeling, more secure, and don’t sacrifice the strength of your surrounding teeth. A dental implant is a small post made of metal (titanium) and coated with a special material that allows the implant to attach to the bone. The post is surgically inserted into the jaw where the teeth are missing, and afterward the surgical area and bone need to heal for a time period. It is during this healing phase that the bone actually bonds to the titanium implant. A dental implant can be used to replace a single tooth, be the anchor point for several adjacent teeth, or act as an anchor for dentures. To be considered a candidate for implant dentistry, a patient must be in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in the jaw is needed to support the implant, and the person needs to be free of gum disease as well. At Raleigh Comprehensive and Cosmetic Dentistry, we take extensive measures to make sure that we provide our patients with enough information to decide about implant dentistry. We will be there to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
