Dental Implants in Durham, NC
A natural-looking solution to replace missing teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
The next best thing to natural teeth.
Dental implants are the premier option for replacing missing teeth. Unlike restorative options, dental implants are a conservative and permanent solution.
Dental implants replace your entire tooth from root to crown, restoring your smile’s look and function.
If you had dentures before, you will no longer have to worry about slipping or clicking. You will be able to eat, talk, and smile like you would with your natural teeth, and best of all, no one will notice you have a dental implant.
Our dental implant process in Durham, NC consists of two parts:
The Benefits of Dental Implants in Durham, NC
With our distinguished dentists in Durham, NC, you can have the entire dental implant procedure done under one roof. Not to mention, this restorative option requires little, if any, ongoing maintenance.
We custom create our dental implant crowns to seamlessly blend in with your smile. Your new tooth will function and look like a natural tooth. This means you can eat your favorite foods again, speak without slurring, and smile without worry.
When you lose a tooth, the surrounding bone begins to deteriorate. The dental implant post serves as a tooth root, which preserves bone and prevents additional bone and tooth loss.
Other restorative options can require invasive work on the healthy, adjacent teeth. Dental implants don’t require shaving down your surrounding teeth, keeping it healthy.
Every piece of this restorative option is made with durable materials that are not subject to decay. With proper hygiene care, your dental implants could last a lifetime.
Bone loss from missing teeth can cause your facial structure to be inadequately supported, giving you a “sunk-in” look. By preserving your bone, you can have a more youthful appearance.

FAQs About Dental Implants
- Is getting a dental implant painful?
You should not expect to feel any pain during a dental implant procedure. We generally only need to use an anesthetic to numb the area.
Post-operatively, most patients only require over-the-counter pain medication and return to work the next day.
For those with dental anxiety or fears, we offer sedation dentistry – a way for you to relax during your appointment. With oral (conscious) sedation, you can finally get the smile you deserve in the most comfortable way possible.
- Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Do you have one or more missing teeth?
Then, the answer is likely yes! You are a candidate for dental implants.
However, there are a few things to consider, such as:
- Age – Dental implants are most suitable for adults who have fully developed mouths.
- Bone loss – If you do not have sufficient bone to support an implant, then additional work may be needed before the procedure.
- Health – If you are not in good health, then the dental implant procedure may not be doable.
To find out if you are a candidate for dental implants in Durham, NC, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
- How much do implants cost?
Dental implants may appear to be more expensive than other restorations like dentures or bridges, but consider this:
Dentures and bridges need maintenance and replacements, which add up costs over time. Whereas dental implants are built to last and don’t need regular updates, making them a cost-effective choice.
The average cost of a dental implant is $3,000 in the United States. If you have dental insurance, your policy may cover dental implants.
