Dental implants are changing the way people live their lives and here at Huntersville Family & Cosmetic Dentistry they are fast becoming the tooth replacement option of choice for many people who have one or more missing teeth. Our dental implants will help you chew, smile and even speak with the confidence of knowing your teeth will remain in place.
Dental implants are permanently inserted into the jaw. This “outpatient” 1 to 2 hour surgical procedure begins with preparing the jawbone which may require bone grafting. Anesthesia is required to eliminate pain and/or discomfort to the patient. The removal of unstable or broken teeth in and around the application area is also necessary.
We can use an implant to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth or to secure a denture. In older dental patients, implants are often used to replace an entire mouthful of teeth lost due to disease. They look, feel and function like natural teeth and truly are the next best thing to having your own teeth.

The process takes a series of visits over the course of two to six months. Dr. Marra and Dr. Layne will perform a thorough assessment of your mouth including 3D x-rays to help you determine if dental implants are the right choice for you.
