Dental Implants in Cary, NC
As kids, we couldn’t wait to have our teeth fall out. It was an exciting rite of passage; however, it’s not something that you would expect to happen as an adult. Unfortunately, millions of Americans are missing one or more teeth. Are you one of them? If so, our Cary, NC, dentist Dr. Torres can provide you with an amazing, long-lasting restoration that looks, feels, and even acts like a real tooth.
There are several reasons why an adult might lose a tooth; however, thanks to advancements in dental technology, our Cary, NC, dental team offers innovative solutions for restoring your smile. One of these solutions is a dental implant, which is as close as you can come to real teeth.
We know that there are a lot of tooth replacement options on the market these days. We offer all of these tooth replacement options to cater to every individual’s needs; however, we also know that our patients have been incredibly happy and satisfied with their dental implants. This is because dental implants offer the only permanent solution to tooth loss.
The implant, which is a simple titanium post, replaces the roots of a tooth. This part of the restoration is surgically placed into the jawbone exactly where the missing tooth used to be. The reason implants are made from titanium is that this metal is biocompatible, which means that it naturally fuses with the jawbone without any issue of rejection. Once the implant and jawbone are one, we will place the abutment and then the crown over the implant to finalize the restoration.
Dental implants have a very high success rate and are one of the best options we offer for replacing missing teeth in healthy adults. At this point, you may be wondering whether you could be a good candidate for implants. Our ideal candidate is a healthy adult with a healthy immune system who also has good bone density.
We also want our patients to be dedicated to the treatment process, which takes several months (and even up to a year, depending on how many implants are being placed); however, the treatment process is most certainly worth it when a patient knows that they have their teeth for the rest of their life.
