Dental implants are an extraordinary cosmetic dental solution for patients who are missing permanent teeth and worried about their appearance and oral health. At Smile & Shine Dental Studio which serves patients in Holly Springs, Apex, Cary, Raleigh and the surrounding areas our dental implants look and feel natural, and can greatly improve your ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
If you already have implant posts in place and simply need new implant restorations, Dr. Hoogar can create custom replacement teeth to place on the implant posts. If you do not already have dental implant posts, we will coordinate with oral surgeons and periodontists who can provide this service for you.
At Smile & Shine Dental Studio the tooth replacement procedure offers dental patients the following benefits:
- A long-term solution for missing teeth. Dental implants can last a lifetime when properly cared for, whereas dental bridges usually need to be replaced after five to 10 years.
- Improved speech. Removable dentures or missing teeth can negatively impact your speech. Dental implants function like normal teeth, so you can speak easy!
- Eat your favorite foods, pain-free. Eating with missing or damaged teeth is painful, and dentures hinder your natural chewing and biting abilities. Dental implants and implant restorations from our dental office allow patients to comfortably enjoy their favorite foods.
- Greater dental health. Empty spaces caused from losing permanent teeth can harbor food and bacteria, and can also lead to the deterioration of your jaw bone. Dental implants occupy troublesome empty spaces and can preserve and stimulate the natural jaw bone.
