Dental Implants

Our Dental Implants/Implant Dentures Provide Your Best Smile Again

When you’re missing teeth, you tend to shy away and miss out on those life moments that normally make you smile. Missing teeth also limits your chewing ability, making it harder to eat your favorite foods. The great news is that our CarolinasDentist teams can get you back to a full, confident smile and traditional dentures aren’t your only choice! Dental implants are a more permanent tooth replacement option that closely mimics the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth. A dental implant post acts as a strong root with a restoration on top that looks like an actual tooth.

Many dental offices out there only provide the second phase of the dental implant procedure, which is the restoration, and have to refer you out for the actual placement of the dental implant. At all of our locations (and we have a dental office near you!), we provide computer-guided implant placement and natural-looking restorations, so you can get the entire procedure in-house from a team you trust.

There are several reasons why you could consider a dental implant:

  • Without the root structure of a natural tooth being present, the jawbone can shrink
  • This shrinkage can make your face look older than it is
  • There are no loose parts to worry about losing
  • The dental implant is stable and comfortable. No adjustment is needed after placement. (Normally, it will serve its owner for life)

Types of Dental Implants to Choose From

Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or even all of the teeth in an entire arch. We’re happy to sit down with you to discuss your options and what we’d recommend ensuring you have a beautiful, healthy smile.

Just have one tooth missing. We can place a dental implant along with a custom-made dental crown to fill in the space.

Have three or more teeth missing? We can place a row of replacement teeth supported by dental implants on either side.

Missing many or all of the teeth in an arch, or tired of dealing with ill-fitting dentures? We can stabilize a set of dentures that snap into place, so you don’t have to worry about slipping.

Your new teeth must be cared for and checked regularly, just like your natural teeth. Brush and floss as recommended by your dentist or dental hygienist. See your dentist in six months, or more frequently if you’re advised to do so.

    Always an amazing customer service experience! The hygienists have exuberant personalities and do wonderfully with children. It’s a non-judgy experience for adults - all around pleasant with little to no waiting.

  • Beth was fantastic. An absolute joy of a hygienist. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed in an otherwise unrelaxing environment (who likes going to the dentist?). Only downside is that the safety glasses did not come in a variety of colors to match my aesthetic.
