Dental implant restorations are designed to create prosthetic teeth that are just like real teeth in appearance and function. Using dental implants, people with missing teeth can regain the ability to smile and eat with ease and comfort. An implant is essentially a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone at the site of a missing tooth. The metal fuses to the jawbone through a process known as osseointegration and becomes a part of the oral structure. Prosthetic teeth are placed on top of the implant to create a permanent replacement tooth/teeth.
Dental implants are a restoration of choice for numerous patients. We offer the following varieties of implants at our practice:
Dental implants are installed using a surgical procedure which is conducted using local anesthesia. Once the implant is placed in the jawbone, small posts are attached to the implant. These protrude through the gums and become stable anchors for the artificial teeth.
Rediscover the confidence and comfort to speak, eat and laugh with teeth that look and feel natural. For more information about dental implants, please contact the office of Axiom Dentistry of Leesville Road at (919) 762-6834 for a consultation.
