Whether you’re missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or looking for a more stable solution for your dentures, our experienced professionals are here to guide and support you on your journey to a restored smile.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are one of the most effective solutions to replace missing teeth. They are composed of three parts: a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone, an abutment that connects the implant to the artificial tooth, and a crown (the artificial tooth) that is custom-made to match your natural teeth.

Implants offer a stable and secure foundation for the replacement teeth as they fuse with the jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. They closely mimic natural teeth in function, comfort, and aesthetics, providing a long-lasting solution to tooth loss.

Benefits Of Dental Implants

The benefits of dental implants extend far beyond restoring your smile. They also provide excellent support and stability, allowing you to chew and speak normally. Additionally, dental implants stimulate the jawbone like natural teeth roots, preventing bone loss often associated with missing teeth.

Unlike removable dentures, implants do not require special care routines or adhesives. They can be maintained just like your natural teeth—through regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups. In addition, dental implants offer superior durability and longevity compared to other tooth replacement options.

Types Of Dental Implants

At Southern Pines Smiles, we understand that every patient has unique dental needs and preferences. That’s why we proudly provide a wide range of dental implant options tailored specifically to suit you. Whether you require a single tooth implant, implant-supported bridges, or implant-supported dentures, our team is committed to helping you achieve a confident and functional smile. 

Single Tooth Replacement

For single tooth replacement, an individual implant is placed in the gap left by the missing tooth. The implant serves as the root, providing a solid foundation for the crown that will replace your natural tooth. The process is minimally invasive and results in a replacement tooth that blends seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, both functionally and aesthetically.

Implant-Supported Bridge

An implant-supported bridge is often the preferred solution when replacing adjacent missing teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, implant-supported bridges do not rely on surrounding natural teeth for support. Instead, they are anchored on dental implants. This approach is healthier for your natural teeth and provides a more stable and durable solution.

Implant-Supported Denture

For patients missing all their teeth on an arch, implant-supported dentures offer a much more stable and comfortable alternative to traditional removable dentures. They are anchored on dental implants, ensuring they stay firmly in place without the need for adhesives. This stability greatly improves the wearer’s ability to eat and speak without worrying about the dentures slipping or clicking.
