Dental Implants in Wilmington, North Carolina
If you are looking for a long-term, effective solution for missing teeth, dental implants may be for you. Treman & Treman Family Dental Care performs dental implants that bring back the functionality, appearance, and feeling of real teeth.
One of the most effective restorative techniques for returning the function of your teeth is the use of dental implants. Implants are made from biocompatible titanium alloy and are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. They are anchored to the jawbone and serve as the foundation for a permanent bridge or artificial tooth. They may also be used to attach dentures. Our dental implants are so well designed to mimic the look and function of your natural teeth, you’ll forget you have them!
Dental Implant Procedure
This procedure can take several visits. During the first visit (for most procedures) a dental implant is placed into the jawbone and the site is allowed to heal for three to six months. This gives the bone time to grow around, and attach to, the implant and hold it in place. During a follow-up visit, a natural-looking artificial tooth, bridge, or denture is fitted over the implant anchor.
In some cases, a dental implant can be placed immediately following the removal of a tooth or root. In addition, if there is enough primary stability, a temporary dental crown can be placed at the same visit, enabling the patient to leave the office with a great smile.
