One of the most innovative improvements in restorative dentistry in the last few decades is the dental implant. Designed like a natural tooth, dental implants offer a permanent way to replace a lost tooth or as an anchor for dental restorations. Our experienced restorative dentists at Carrington Square Dental offer advanced implant dentistry at our clinic in Waxhaw, NC, for replacing single or multiple missing teeth.
Dental implants are secured in the jawbone like natural teeth. The titanium post of the implant is the “root” of the new tooth, which is topped with an abutment to attach to the dental restoration. For single tooth replacements, dental implants have a natural-looking crown which is bonded to the abutment, creating a functional, beautiful new tooth.
Dental implants have an extensive lifespan – most implants will last for the rest of a patient’s life. While they do require maintenance and possible repairs, this is similar to natural teeth. The success rate of dental implants is extremely high – usually higher than 95% on average.
Excellence in Implant Dentistry
Dental implants offer the closest function and appearance to natural teeth. The bone in the jaw grows around the implant, keeping it secure and offering similar strength to a natural tooth. While not every person is a good candidate for dental implants, more and more people can enjoy this dental restoration option. Our implant dentists use the latest techniques and technology that increase the availability of dental implants for our patients.
Dental implants are an investment in your smile and oral health. Unlike dentures that sit on the gums or bridges that attach to other teeth, dental implants are inserted into the bone. This helps stimulate bone growth, preserving the jaw and facial structure. The bone growth in the jaw can help the face retain its youthful appearance, while the dental implant restores a complete smile for appearance and function.
