Dentist in Wilmington, NC
Dental implants are a safe, durable replacement for missing teeth. Unlike other solutions, dental implants function and appear like natural teeth. These nearly indistinguishable replacements provide numerous oral health benefits by filling up an opening in your teeth. Dental implant procedures are completely safe and are quite common in modern dentistry.
Implants can be placed wherever a patient has lost one of their permanent adult teeth. By anchoring a small metal piece into the jaw, dental implants form a sturdy bond with the natural bone. Then, based on your individual needs and preferences, our team will attach replacement crowns or dentures to make your smile look natural.
