Completing Smiles with Dental Implants for Raleigh, NC
Missing teeth compromise your oral health. Even a single missing tooth can change the balance of biting force across teeth resulting in shifting, rotating, as well as jaw and facial pain from overworked muscles. Not only does a missing tooth change the look of your smile, it can negatively affect the way you feel from day to day, take away your confidence, and leave you with a diminished quality of life.
A missing tooth doesn’t mean you have to wear uncomfortable dentures or bridges. Dentures and removable bridges tend to be loose and unstable, but implants provide you with dental replacements that are just like your own teeth. Implants look great, feel great, and offer the chewing force of your natural teeth. Dental implants are a durable and attractive choice that can provide a complete smile for years to come.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a versatile tooth or teeth replacement therapy allowing for the replacement of a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. Because dental implants replace the tooth root, they are considered the most natural and permanent way to replace missing teeth. No longer do you need to worry about loose fitting or uncomfortable bridges or dentures.
How do dental implants work? If you aren’t familiar with dental implants, you’ve come to the right place to learn more. Dental implants consist of a titanium post that’s inserted below the gum line and topped by a handcrafted dental crown. The post acts just like the root of a natural tooth, and because it’s made of a biocompatible material, it fuses naturally with the jawbone creating a solid foundation.
Dr. Philip Lisk is a vital link in your care when receiving a dental implant. We take a team approach working in conjunction with periodontists and oral surgeons to provide the best and most up-to-date treatment available. We’ll refer you to a trusted colleague for the surgical implant process, and follow-up care will be provided between your specialist and our office. Once the healing process is complete, Dr. Lisk will place the dental crown, also called the restoration, on your implant post.
Do you have removable dentures or partials that slip and cause you pain? Implant retained dentures and partials are a great solution for many patients. The implant acts as an anchor for your prosthetic eliminating sliding and clicking for a comfortable fit and a confident smile.
