At least three million Americans have replaced a missing tooth with a dental implant, and that number grows each year. You can get a fresh start on your smile with a dental implant from Cary Family Dental.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. They blend in with your remaining teeth, and look and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are a long-term tooth restoration.
Dental implants also prevent bone recession, which is common in people who have lost teeth. The titanium post goes where the tooth root used to be, and helps strengthen the bone.
Implants can also be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.
Our implants are placed with the aid of CBCT technology, which gives us 3-D images of your jaw and teeth. These enable us to make the most accurate placement possible.
