One of the most effective treatments for replacing your missing teeth are dental implants. Dr. Kristen Langworthy may recommend an implant in order to replace both the root and crown of your missing tooth and provide you with a long-term solution that will promote both your smile and your oral health. We invite you to call Langworthy Family Dentistry at 919-762-3239 to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dentists to learn more about dental implants in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.
Dental implants are designed to permanently replace your missing teeth. They look, feel and function just like your natural teeth, including stimulating the supporting jawbone to ensure it remains healthy just like your original tooth root does. Implants may be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth or an entire arch of teeth.
When you receive a dental implant, our dentists work with local, board-certified oral surgeons and periodontists to have your implant placed. During this first part of your treatment, the implant post is surgically inserted into the jawbone to replace your missing tooth root and ensure that your restoration will have a stable foundation. After you have healed and recovered from your implant placement, you will return to our office and our dentists will create your implant restoration.
An implant restoration replaced the top part of your tooth and may consist of a single crown, a bridge, or a complete or partial denture. This restoration is custom-designed to fit your smile and provide you with excellent results. Once the restoration is completed, it will be placed atop the implant post to finish restoring your smile.
When properly cared for with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits for preventive care, an implant can last for a lifetime.
