Dental Implants in Surf City, North Carolina
During a dental implant procedure, Dr. Parr first positions a metal post into the jaw. A healing period follows to ensure functionality of the post.
Once the post and surrounding bone have sufficiently healed, your replacement tooth is attached to the post.
Dental implants are a safe and practical way to repair your smile. Implants are often more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, but they offer superior benefits:
- Stronger than natural teeth
- Generally last 10-20 years
- Do not rely on neighboring teeth for support
To be a good candidate for dental implants, it’s necessary that you keep up with your oral hygiene. Patients who receive implants need healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. Regular dental visits and careful oral care are critical for the long-term success of dental implants.
