  • Implants now gold standard to replace missing teeth

Dental implants are used frequently today to replace a missing tooth. The implant serves as the missing root of your tooth. Once it has stabilized in the bone, a crown and implant abutment that supports the crown completes the process.

Dental-Implants1We highly recommend implants to replace missing teeth, because the end result is a new tooth that few can tell from your own teeth. It’s natural looking, strong for comfortable chewing, and it cleans and flosses like your other teeth.

We offer the Astra Tech Implant System™ by Densply Implants. We selected this system because it has evidence-based research and testing behind it. In fact, the UNC School of Dentistry uses this system in its education program.

The Astra Tech Implant System is versatile; it can be used to replace one tooth or used in multiple sites to support a dental bridge. It also supports full dentures and partial dentures, and attachments are interchangeable.

The Locator™ mini-Implant Overdenture System is a more affordable option for patients who only need denture stability. Four of these mini-implants can stabilize an ill-fitting denture for considerably less than the cost of standard implant.
