Keep the functionality and comfort of your natural teeth with dental implants.
There are some occasions when a tooth needs to be extracted or cannot be saved. Sometimes this occurs because of a sports trauma where a tooth was knocked out, other times it might be due to multiple root canals and fillings degrading the structure of the tooth. Whatever reason applies to you, you might have dental implants recommended to replace your natural tooth. We here at the dental office of Paul D. Nifong, Jr., DDS would love to explain your options and the procedures surrounding dental implants for your needs in the Advance, North Carolina area.
Dental implants are like a very cool and somewhat futuristic prosthetic tooth that replaces your natural tooth in a permanent manner. Unlike dentures or bridges that can be removed, a dental implant is anchored in your jawbone with a surgical screw and a false tooth is attached to the screw. Dental implants usually require a few different visits over a longer period of time, but the results are long-lasting and leave you with a tooth that you can care for just as easily as your natural tooth. If you have multiple teeth missing, several dental implants can be an option that you should discuss with Dr. Nifong!
If you have recently lost a tooth or know that you will soon need to have a tooth extracted, then please come and talk with us here at the dental office of Paul D. Nifong, Jr., DDS about your options for dental implants. We look forward to working with you!
