Dental Implants – North Raleigh, NC
Replacing Teeth from the Root Up
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. Dr. Philip A. Lisk offers dental implants as a durable and attractive choice that can provide a complete smile for years to come.

Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants are a versatile solution, 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.
Missing Single Tooth
We use an implant-retained crown when replacing a single tooth to deliver you a natural-looking and feeling replacement. Your restoration will be custom-made to match the rest of your smile, and once it’s placed, you’ll be left with a beautifully complete smile.
Missing Multiple Teeth
If you’re missing consecutive multiple teeth, your best option is an implant-retained bridge because it can replace your missing teeth all at once. With a dental implant on either side of the gap in your smile, Dr. Lisk will restore its look and function with a bridge. The dental implants anchor your bridge in place for a secure and strong bite.
Missing All Teeth
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.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Every patient’s overall cost will be different because of the many factors that play a role in the dental implant placement and restoration. The number of teeth you’re missing, condition of your oral health, and what type of restoration you’ll need are just some of the variables that influence the cost of your dental implants. During your first visit, Dr. Lisk will examine your mouth and discuss your desired goals before putting together a treatment plan with a fair and more precise estimate.
