About Us

We Meet a Need in North Carolina

If you are considering tooth replacement, you have likely considered dental implants. But what are dental implants? And are they the right solution for you?

Dental implants are a type of tooth replacement that involves placing a metal post into the jawbone to serve as a new “root” for an artificial tooth. Once the post is in place, it can be used to support a permanent artificial tooth or teeth. Implants are a popular choice because they look and feel like natural teeth, and they do not require the surrounding teeth to be altered, as is necessary with other types of tooth replacements, such as bridges. In addition, implants can last a lifetime with proper care.

If you are missing one or more teeth and are considering dental implants, the first step is to consult an implant specialist to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Generally speaking, most healthy adults with good oral hygiene habits are candidates for dental implants.

Our location in Durham means we can serve the needs of the surrounding communities such as Raleigh and Greensboro.
