Dental implants are a long term tooth replacements option. Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and will act as a tooth root. Once an implant is fused to the bone it is restored with an abutment and crown. Dental implants can be placed in the upper or lower jaw.
Dental implants can help to improve your appearance because when you lose a tooth, shrinkage of the jawbone may cause your face to look older; therefore a dental implant can help stop this process. Dental implants can last for years and with good care, they can last a lifetime and there is no adjustment needed after placement.
If you have lost a tooth and are currently looking for a way to restore the natural appearance and function of your lost teeth, a dental implant may be the best solution for you. Please contact us today at (919) 479-1300 to start with your implant treatment!
