Dental Implants: Change Your Life In 4 Steps

cosmetic dental and implants

Dental implants from Cary Family Dental are an ideal replacement option for missing teeth, whether it’s a single tooth or all of them. One implant can support one artificial tooth, while multiple implants can support a set of dentures.

Implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw, where they fuse with the bone and provide a solid support base. They have a success rate that is greater than ninety percent.

Here is the process:

1. Examination and Assessment
During your first visit, we take X-rays and analyze your mouth and the condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. We analyze options with you and create a treatment plan.

2. Implant Placement
The first step is to insert the titanium post into your jawbone. This is not as difficult or painful as it sounds. Most patients are surprised at how rapid and easy the procedure is.

3. Integration
Titanium is well-suited to dental implants because it readily integrates with bone. The technical term for this is ‘osteophilic,’ which means bone loving. For most patients, it takes from three to six months for the process to complete.

4. Final Restoration
Once the implant has fused you are ready for the final step, whether it’s a crown, bridge, or dental arch. Dental implant restorations are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Dental implants from Cary Family Dental can be life-changing. Please call our office to find out whether you are a good candidate for the procedure.
