Dental Implants in Cornelius NC

a dental implant diagram | cornelius nc dentistMissing or failing teeth have a big impact on your daily life. Actions we often take for granted are compromised, such as eating and chewing comfortably or even ordering whatever you’d like from the menu. Often, your nutrition suffers as well.

Damaged teeth also take a toll on your confidence when you feel embarrassed about talking or smiling in front of others.

You may not realize it, but your missing tooth is also impacting your oral health.

When your bone has no root to support, it will begin to deteriorate, or resorb, which changes the appearance of your face and eliminates the support system for your healthy teeth. Without a tooth replacement, your remaining teeth begin to shift into the open space. Not only does this cause bite misalignment, it also increases the risk of damage or fractures to your healthy teeth.

When you're missing one or more of your teeth, it often results in additional tooth loss.

The good news is Cornelius Dentistry has solutions for you, and dental implants may be able to help!

How Can Dental Implants Restore Your Smile?

A dental implant is the most successful tooth replacement option because it restores your root with a titanium post and your tooth with an aesthetically pleasing porcelain crown. Because it’s bio-compatible, the implant will naturally integrate with your bone over healing period of 3 to 5 months, which creates a stable foundation for your new tooth.

When your implant is ready, Dr. Stenvall will restore your tooth with a customized crown designed to deliver all the function you had before your tooth loss. You’ll be able to eat and chew with ease again and you’ll feel confident about your smile when you talk with someone.

Our team can determine if dental implants are right for your needs with a thorough examination and x-rays.
