Dental Implants Huntersville, NC - Anatomy of a dental implant - post, abutment, and crown.

A Permanent Solution

Dental implants are the best option for replacing missing teeth.

When a tooth is missing, the underlying bone begins to deteriorate. This causes problems like painful chewing and shifting teeth.

A dental implant replaces the missing tooth’s root and integrates with the bone to stop loss. No other restoration can do this.

A dental implant consists of a:

  • Post: This titanium root replacement is extremely strong and lightweight.

  • Abutment: Securely fastens the crown and post.

  • Crown: A beautiful custom-made restoration that’ll blend in.

Your new tooth will look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth.

FAQs About Dental Implants

Get the answers below.
  • Will dental implant treatment be painful?

    All work is done with anesthetics and in some cases sedation techniques so patients do not have to feel or experience any discomfort through treatment.

    Patients can expect relatively short appointments with no procedure or healing discomfort following dental implant therapy. Most patients finish the process telling us that it has been one of the more comfortable dental experiences they’ve been through.

  • How long does treatment with dental implants take?

    The process has shortened considerably because implants and materials continue to improve since their first introduction decades ago. Dental implants for most of our Huntersville patients will have shorter treatment appointments than they have experienced in the past for dental work such as crowns and root canals.

    The actual length of treatment time is also affected by other factors, such as:

    • Is a bone graft necessary to place the implant?
    • How many teeth are being implanted?
    • Individual healing time.

    Generally, the actual placement of the implant post takes just one office visit. Time is needed for this to heal and integrate with the bone. This process can take a few months. Once the healing is complete, the abutment is placed, and soon after that, the implant is finished off with a crown.

  • Aren't implants very expensive?

    Today, the implant process has become much more affordable for patients as it has become our first choice when it comes to replacing missing teeth.

    Also, providing the implant therapy start to finish in one office helps us to reduce the overall cost for patients. In some cases, the implant could have similar prices to other tooth replacement options.

  • Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

    Dental implants are a great solution for most people. We can successfully place implants in patients who have:

    • One or more missing teeth
    • Healthy gum tissue
    • A sufficient and healthy jawbone to support the implant. If not available, a bone graft may be necessary.
    • General good health

    Dr. Bunn and his team will be happy to help you determine if dental implants are the right option for you.

  • Are you accepting new patients?

    Yes, we always welcome new patients.
