Dental implants in Clayton, NC are the gold standard in tooth replacement, restoring your tooth and its valuable root. No other option offers this unique and important distinction, making dental implants a popular choice among patients and dentists.
When you lose your tooth root, you risk jawbone deterioration. This can lead to a prematurely aged or sunken facial appearance and even additional oral health issues. A dental implant replaces your lost root to help keep your jawbone viable.
If you need a dental implant, we start you with a consultation in our dental office. If your implant dentist finds that you’re a good candidate for this particular tooth replacement option, we schedule your implant placement.
The dental implant itself is a tooth root surgically inserted into your jawbone. Over a few months, this new root integrates with the bone to create a durable base for your replacement tooth, commonly called a dental crown.
