What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are substitute tooth roots, used to replace natural tooth roots in areas of the mouth where teeth are missing. The replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth—dramatically improving so many aspects of a person’s life.
With dental implants, a person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with confidence. The natural-looking replacement teeth also help preserve facial contours and prevent the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
How New is Dental Implant Technology?
Swedish scientist and orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark, developed the dental implant concept for oral rehabilitation more than 40 years ago. With his pioneering research, Dr. Branemark opened the door to a lifetime of renewed comfort and self-confidence for millions of individuals facing the frustration and embarrassment of tooth loss.
Dental implants themselves are one of the most predictable and successful procedures in dentistry today. The single most important step you can make to safeguard your investment is to choose a highly trained oral surgeon to perform your surgery. Unlike general dentists who infrequently place implants, our specialists have years of experience in implant dentistry. Additionally, we implement advanced techniques and the highest quality materials to ensure your implants look and feel completely natural for years to come.
Carolinas Oral and Facial Surgery Center has been placing dental implants for over 30 years, with a 95-99% success rate. Any problems that may occur are usually minor and occur during the first year. Our surgeons guarantee their work, and will replace any implant that they place free of charge during the first year.
