Dental implants are the perfect choice for our patients who are looking for a permanent, natural-looking replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, and when properly cared for, they can last a lifetime. The dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone; created from titanium, the dental implant will fuse with the jawbone for a stable restoration. The dental implant restoration, which may be a dental crown, dental bridge, full denture, or partial denture, is placed after a period of healing. Your caring dentists at Durham Dentistry, Dr. Baxter Sapp and Dr. Macon Sapp, will help you determine which type of dental implant restoration best fits your needs. When in place, your dental implant restoration can:
- Enhance the beauty of your smile
- Restore lost facial volume
- Prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Improve your ability to chew, eat, and speak
Dental implants are exceptionally secure and aesthetic. We invite you to contact our dental office in Durham, North Carolina to discover whether implant dentistry is right for you!
