Reliable Stability, Long-Term Function

Dental implants are made up of three components—post, abutment, and restoration—that mimic the function of natural teeth. Secured in your jawbone, dental implants can support single crowns, a dental bridge, and full arch restorations. This includes implant supported dentures and full mouth dental implants. Dental implants provide numerous advantages over other tooth replacement options.

Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanently secured in your jawbone and act like artificial tooth roots (implant posts). They are permanently fixed and stable enough to restore over 99% of natural biting and chewing ability.

Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require healthy teeth to be present to support the restoration. Dental implants only need proper jawbone density to remain secure and strong. In turn, jawbone density will provide stimulation to keep the bone healthy.

Considered the “gold standard” in tooth replacement, dental implants have been restoring oral health, smile aesthetics, and dental function for decades!

Dental Implant Treatment Process

Your dental implant treatment at Avason Family Dentistry is personalized to your specific oral health needs and smile goals.

You’ll first complete a consultation with our implant dentist in Cornelius, NC where we’ll discuss your dental and medical history, take digital x-rays, and create a custom treatment plan. If you need tooth extractions or bone grafting, we’ll be able to determine if these need to be completed before your implant surgery or if they can be performed in the same surgical visit. Next, you’ll undergo dental implant placement surgery at your next visit.

With advanced technology and relaxing sedation dentistry, this surgery is comfortable and efficient. What’s more, it can be completed in just a few hours.

During surgery, each dental implant post will be placed in strategic locations in your jawbone, avoiding nerves and optimizing longevity and aesthetics. In many cases, we’re able to attach a temporary tooth or set of teeth at this same appointment.

We work closely with a local dental lab to provide hand-crafted Provisionals attached the day of surgery, insuring you’ll never be without teeth. As your mouth heals over the next three or more months, you’ll be able to eat comfortably and enjoy restored smile aesthetics until you receive your permanent, custom-made dental implant restoration.
