About Dental Implants

For a long-lasting and attractive substitute for lost teeth, advanced procedures at DentalWorks - Northcross Village in Huntersville, NC by our dentists use dental implants to help restore a beautiful, fully-functioning mouth. Dental implants surgically place titanium posts in the jaw to mimic the natural root, so false teeth can be attached for a secure fit that doesn't require adhesives or eating restrictions. The false teeth will be colored and shaped by our dentists to match the patient's teeth for a natural appearance. For anyone who is missing a single tooth or more, dental implants at DentalWorks - Northcross Village can be a great, long-lasting solution.

What to Expect

Before a dental implant is placed, a thorough examination will be conducted by our dentists to assess the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the patient is a good candidate for dental implants, digital X-rays and physical impressions will help our dentists to determine the ideal location for the dental implants during the procedure. The individual will be put under local anesthesia and sedation if needed while our dentists place the titanium post into the jawbone. Over the course of 3 - 6 months, the bone and dental implant will fuse while the bone heals and once the dental implant is secure, the false tooth or teeth can be attached to the dental implant using a connector. Our dentists will adjust the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and secure fit.

Treatment Aftercare

Most patients experience little to no discomfort following their dental implants are finished, however some patients may have short-term aches and soreness that can be relieved using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To prolong the life of dental implants, patients should have a good home dental care routine that includes daily flossing, brushing, and anything suggested by the dentist. Regular appointments at DentalWorks - Northcross Village in Huntersville, NC for dental cleanings and oral exams are also important to implant care. Dental implants can last a long time with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.

Insurance Coverage

If dental implants are deemed to be required for oral health, the patient's dental insurance plan will often pay for a portion of the final bill. However, elective dental implants are ordinarily not paid by insurance plans. During the patient's consultation, the office staff of DentalWorks - Northcross Village can figure our their insurance coverage and explain payment methods and financing available through our office.
