Dental implants are small titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone in place of missing teeth. Titanium is biocompatible, so it will fuse with the bone to create a strong and secure anchor for a restoration. Typical restorations that are placed on top of implants include dental crowns and bridges.

Implant Supported Dentures

If you’re missing most or all of an arch, we can also use dental implants to secure your denture. Stop fussing over a loose, uncomfortable, ill-fitting denture! Our Cary dentists can place dental implants that fit securely into holes precisely drilled into your denture, giving you a fit that feels great and dentures that function more like your natural teeth than ever before!

Are Dental Implants Right For You?

Generally, if you are missing a tooth you are a candidate for dental implants. Essentially, it all depends on whether or not your gums are healthy enough to support them. Everybody’s mouth is different with different needs, so there’s no way for us to tell if dental implants are right for you without a consultation with one of our experienced Cary dentists.

Are implants permanent?

Dental implants are considered permanent dental restorations. While they can be removed, dental implants are surgically implanted into the gums and fuse with the jawbone, making them very sturdy and essentially impossible to remove except by a dental professional. Implants are an excellent choice for patients who want to replace a missing tooth or teeth without having to worry about getting a replacement after 10 to 15 years.

Are implants painful?

A local anesthetic is applied to the gums before the procedure begins to completely numb the affected area, so the appointment itself should be painless. It is completely normal however, to feel some pain, discomfort, or sensitivity for a few days after your implant is placed, but it shouldn’t be unbearable by any means. You can take pain medication that we prescribe, over-the-counter medication, use an ice pack, or rinse with warm saltwater to relieve soreness. You will also want to eat soft foods and be careful with your new implant for a while, and if you have any questions about the recovery process, you are always welcome to ask our team.

Are dental implants expensive?

Dental implants can be more of a financial investment than other dental treatments, but they are long-lasting, permanent solutions for tooth loss. Our team wants to be able to provide affordable dental implants to anyone who needs them, which is why we accept many popular insurance plans and third-party payment plans through CareCredit®.
