Tryon Family Dentistry offers all types of dental implants for their patients missing one, several, or all of their teeth. Dr. Leo Haydt performs every stage of the implant process from the comforts of our Zebulon, NC dentist office. The process typically begins with a consultation with Dr. Leo to assess your oral and overall health and determine if you qualify for teeth implants. Using x-rays and 3-D imaging, he will be able to see if you have enough bone to support an implant.
What Are Dental Implants?
The implants are actually tiny titanium posts that will need to be surgically placed in the jawbone. These metal anchors will serve as the replacement tooth roots which will help preserve the bone. The implant will fuse with the surrounding bone creating a durable foundation for the replacement teeth (the dental restoration). Since titanium is a biocompatible metal, it can easily integrate with the bone during process called osseointegration. Dental Implants can be used to replace:
- A single tooth with one implant that will anchor a dental crown
- Multiple consecutive teeth with two or more implants that will secure a dental bridge
- A full arch of teeth or all of the teeth by using at least four dental implants to secure a denture implant
Why Choose Dental Implants?
If you are missing teeth, we offer many solutions but dental implants are by the far the superior option. Implant secured restorations are changing people’s lives because they are a more natural alternative to dentures and dental bridges. They are better for your oral health since the missing tooth root is replaced. This will stimulate the jawbone preventing bone loss. The dental bridge process will require the adjacent healthy teeth to be degraded to accommodate the restoration and secure it in place. Essentially, you are adding stress and damaging healthy teeth. Dentures have a bad reputation for slipping around in your mouth, causing slurred speech, and sometimes even falling out. Denture implants will eliminate all those issues! Eating, speaking, and smiling will be natural again since they are more durable and stable than traditional, removable dentures. With a 98% success rate, dental implants are now considered the number one solution to replace missing teeth.
