Dental Implants for Mooresville Residents
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, coupled with cosmetic all-ceramic crowns, that provide a fixed replacement of natural teeth. Dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution that fit, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are the new standard in tooth replacement.
Dr. Keadle, using medical grade titanium that is engineered for strength and longevity, surgically places the dental implants that fuse to the living bone cells of the jaw over a period of several weeks.
Eating with dental implants is not a problem, and unlike dentures, there is no need to repair them regularly or worry about smiling or talking.
Dental implants typically have three parts:
- The implant: The titanium fixture that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw.
- The abutment: A permanent connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth. This is removable, but only by your doctor.
- The ceramic crown (or prosthetic tooth): This is the part of the tooth that you can see. It’s usually made of zirconium or porcelain and is both beautiful and durable.
Dental implants may be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. Call 704-639-1330 today, schedule a free consultation with Dr. Keadle, and find out how dental implants can get you a new smile.
