What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a type of permanent restoration and replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants are considered superior to other types of restorations due to their stability, strength, and aesthetic. Dr. Monahan, our talented dentist, offers dental implants in Burlington, North Carolina to help restore your smile and your self-confidence. Don’t let missing teeth hold you back any longer.

How are dental implants done?

Placing dental implants is a surgical treatment that is performed with great care and skill at our dental office. We make every effort to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. To place dental implants, a small titanium post is inserted into the empty bone socket where your missing tooth once was. After your gums have healed and the bone has fused to the post, a small attachment called an abutment is placed on the post. The abutment acts as a connector for your dental restoration. Depending upon your individual needs, a dental crown, denture, or bridge may be attached to the abutment to restore your smile. Dental implants are designed to look and feel like natural teeth for more beautiful, confident life. If you would like to learn more about dental implants, please contact our dental office today. We are excited to help you achieve a smile you will want to share!
