Dental Implants in Davidson, NC

Dental Implants

At Dastrup Dental, our implant surgery replaces tooth roots with screw-like, metal posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth. We take a comprehensive approach in helping our patients prevent the common dental conditions that cause tooth loss. But, if the tooth cannot be saved, we recommend teeth replacement treatments such as dental implants to replace the lost tooth permanently.

Dental implant surgery provides much-needed alternatives to dentures or bridgework. The details of your dental implant procedure depend on your individual needs, but the procedure is versatile enough to handle a range of pressing dental issues. Tooth loss not only affects the patients’ self-confidence, but also negatively impacts their oral health. Most healthy patients are eligible for a dental implant after an extraction and can benefit from its health and cosmetic benefits.

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants offer patients experiencing tooth loss a straightforward solution for natural-looking teeth. Candidates for a dental implant procedure will begin with a consultation with our team of dental experts. At Dastrup Dental, we believe in an individualized approach to guarantee the best possible results for each patient. 

The following procedures will take place when you decide to have dental implants treatment:

  • Dental exam (Dental x-rays and 3D imaging)
  • Medical history review and treatment plan
  • Jawbone preparation
  • Dental implant placement(artificial root)
  • Bone growth stage(jawbone fusion to implant)
  • Abutment and dental crown placement

The length of dental implant treatment may last for several months due to the waiting required for the bone cells to attach to the implant. On a good note, the long-term benefits of a dental implant are what make it worth the wait.

Dental Implants FAQ

A dental implant is a small titanium screw placed in the jawbone, acting as the root of the replacement tooth. As the implant heals, it becomes a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Then, dental crowns or dentures are attached to the upper surface of a dental implant, holding implants in place.

Candidates for dental implants include a person missing one or more teeth who cannot wear dentures. Additionally, good candidates have adequate bone in their jaw to secure the implant, good overall oral health, and a lack of bone growth-inhibiting conditions. The best candidate is positive, wishing to improve their smile!

A dental implant can feel like having a natural tooth again. Our dental team recommends this dental treatment for missing teeth due to the following health benefits:

  • Bone retention. It prevents the progression of bone loss caused by extraction and preserves your bone structure.
  • Bite alignment. It fills the gap in your smile and keeps the remaining teeth in place.
  • Comfortable and easy maintenance. Caring for a dental implant is the same as taking care of a natural tooth with brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits. It is also a fixed dental appliance that means you no longer need to replace it after several years.
  • Healthy diet support. It does not require diet restrictions and brings back the joy of eating that once was lost due to tooth loss.

Typically, dental implants are not noticeable. We design each dental implant crown to match your teeth so it fits perfectly both in color and size.

Dental implants also provide extra stability and support beneficial for other dental procedures like dental bridges. It’s a permanent teeth-replacement solution that allows you to have a ‘natural-like tooth’ that does not decay.

With the right amount of attention, care, and maintenance, dental implants should last your whole life!
