Gentle Implant Dentist in Cary
Injury and disease often lead to missing teeth. If you have good oral health, sufficient bone in your jaw and healthy gum tissue, you are likely a good candidate for dental implants from Serene Smiles Dentistry. Your Cary implant dentist, Dr. Shah, will start by anchoring a screw into the jawbone to serve as the prosthetic tooth’s new root. From there, a small post will be attached to the end where an implant crown is placed. Your affordable dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. All that is required to maintain them is regular brushing, flossing and dental visits.
Choose Between Partial or Full-Mouth Options
You may be considering an implant crown or bridge to make up for a missing tooth. If you need a full mouth of replacements, perhaps you’ve looked into dentures. While these solutions are a good option for some patients, dental implants provide several distinct advantages:
- Prevent jawbone deterioration and gum tissue shrinkage. Gaps leave exposed tissue vulnerable to decay. By recreating the root, abutment and implant crown, your facial structure is preserved, helping you to maintain a youthful look.
- No pressure put on other teeth. This is unlike bridges, which use members on each side to provide support and often require adjustments over the years.
- Anchored in place. There’s no need to remove implants for eating or cleaning, and unlike dentures, they don’t move around while speaking.
- Truly permanent. Dentures and bridges do not include root replacement. Implants, on the other hand, utilize titanium to create a root that isn’t subject to decay.
