Professional Dental Implant in North Raleigh, NC
A dental implant is an artificial tooth that permanently replaces a missing tooth. Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth including every tooth in the upper and lower arches. Dental implants are fused directly into the jawbones providing the stability and function of natural teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Permanent replacement. Dental implants are surgically fused to your jawbone. They support permanent tooth replacements that will not shift, slip, or interfere with neighboring teeth. After just three short months of healing time, your titanium implant will be ready to receive its new porcelain crown.
Natural looking. Nobody can tell it's a dental implant! The color of your personal crown (artificial tooth) is selected to match the rest of our teeth. Created right in our office on our CEREC machine, your new tooth is screwed directly onto the titanium dental implant.
Long-lasting. Dental implants can last life long when taken care of properly. As long as the patient brushes and flosses twice a day, every day, and takes care of his/her implants the way that they take care of their natural teeth, they can depend on dental implants for a long time.
Does Insurance Usually Cover the Cost of Dental Implants?
There isn't a hard and fast answer to this question. Dental insurance plans vary. Some plans do cover dental implants, while others cover only part of the cost of a dental implant. Unfortunately, some dental plans will cover nothing at all. However, you don't have to worry just yet! This is because even if you don't have insurance coverage for your dental implants, you still have options to get the care you need.
What Are My Options?
At Caring Smile Family Dentistry, we understand that emergencies don't operate on your budgeting timetable. We don't want you to feel torn between the dental work you need and the cost of treatment. That's why we provide you with a couple of financing options. We are proud to work with CareCredit. These financing choices offer a variety of options which can be tailored based on your needs. Give us a call to learn more about your financing options or to learn more about which insurance carriers we accept!
What is Dental Flippers
Dental flippers are a great option for temporary tooth replacement. Today’s modern dental implants are designed to last for life. They’re a great investment for our patients to consider. However, the healing time required between an extraction, the surgical implant placement, and the final restorative phases can be intimidating, especially for people with visibly missing teeth. A few benefits of opting for dental flippers in the meantime include:
Because your flipper is removable, you’ll be able to easily access and clean the implant site as it heals.
There won’t be unnecessary aesthetic concerns when talking or smiling around your friends and co-workers before you can get your implant!
With a dental flipper, daily tasks such as chewing and speaking will be easier than if you didn't have a tooth in that spot at all.
This dental intervention is known for being generally cheaper compared to other tooth replacements.
Dental flippers can be created rather quickly, making this intervention the perfect solution when a patient has unexpectedly lost a tooth.
What to Expect
At Caring Smile Family Dentistry, our implant patients can enjoy a same-day, temporary prosthesis (or flipper) to wear from the first day of their treatment. This way, their smiles look great throughout their entire course of care. Whether you need to have a tooth extracted or you are waiting for new bone to develop around a recently placed implant, we’ll make sure that you have something to fill in the gap left behind.
Implant Failure Treatment
Caring Smile's Implant Failure Treatment
Though dental implants are usually very successful, there are times when they don't work. This is called an implant failure.There are many signs that you need to pay attention to if you believe that your implants are failing. These include:
Pain. If you have pain in your jawbone, your implants will need to be examined by your dentist.
Swelling. Though you may have some swelling at the beginning, if your swelling doesn't go down or returns in the future, you need to be checked out.
How Can It Be Prevented?
Getting implants is generally a safe procedure. However, there can always be complications. Here are some ways to prevent any further problems:
Make your dental health a priority. A healthy mouth is less likely to reject your implants so be sure that you continue to brush your teeth, floss, and use an antibacterial mouthwash every day.
Know the risk factors. There are some factors that will increase your chance of having implant failure. This includes certain habits such as grinding your teeth or even diseases such as osteoporosis. Some medications can also affect the outcome so be sure to discuss all of your medical conditions and medications with your dentist prior to your implant procedure.
Multiple Teeth Replacement
Caring Smile Family Dentistry's multiple teeth replacements
Are you missing two or more teeth? At Caring Smile Dentistry, we are proud to offer comprehensive multiple teeth replacement services to patients. There are many reasons why you need to replace any of your teeth. This includes
Preserve your facial symmetry. When you start to lose teeth, it can change the look of your face.
Stop your teeth from moving. As you lose teeth, they shift in order to fill in the gap. This can cause you a lot of problems down the road.
Keep your jaw healthy. Your jawbone needs your teeth to stay strong and healthy. If you don't have your teeth, your implants will do the same. It prevents your jawbone from deteriorating.
How Many Tooth Can Be Replaced?
You can replace multiple teeth at once. Usually, you will need one implant for every one to two teeth. We can also use implants as support for bridges when you are missing several teeth at once. At Caring Smile Family Dentistry, our professional staff members can do implants one tooth at a time or we can do a whole row of your teeth. It all depends on your situation!
Dentures vs. Dental Implants
Dentures and dental implants are options for replacing missing teeth. Dentures are false teeth that can be removed from the mouth, while dental implants serve as replacements for the tooth root. The implant is made of titanium and looks like a screw as well.
While both dental interventions can help patients to regain function and a full smile appearance, it is important to remember that not all patients will be a candidate for both.
The Advantage of Dental Implants
A few reasons to opt for dental implants instead of dentures include:
A Permanent Option. Patients who practice proper oral hygiene can expect their dental implants to last a lifetime. In contrast, dentures have to be replaced every few years.
Stability. Like natural teeth, dental implants stay in place. Dentures move around so much that some denture wearers require adhesive to keep their dentures from shifting about their mouths.
Natural Appearance. The crown for a dental implant can be created to match the color of the patient's natural teeth. Other people can't tell the porcelain crown is an artificial tooth.
Quality of Life. Since dental implants and their crowns function like natural teeth, they improve the patient's quality of life in a way dentures cannot. Dentures can interfere with activities of daily living like eating and speaking. Wearing dentures is uncomfortable for some people.
The Downfalls of Dentures
Dental implants act as a better, long-term solution when compared to dentures because:
They have to be removed and thoroughly cleaned regularly. The cleaning of cups and adhesives can be seen as undesirable because they are messy and expensive.
Dentures are not worn overnight.
Dentures can slip around, making it difficult to speak or eat.
Certain foods cannot be eaten with dentures, including caramel, apples, and corn on the cob.
Increased risk of gum disease if food is trapped by the dentures.
They frequently need replacement (every 3 to 6 years compared to 20+ years for dental implants).

Practice proper dental hygiene
Have regular cleanings
Make an appointment at the first sign of problems
Dental Implant Repair: Reasons and Causes
Although dental implants have a very high success rate, there may still be issues. Dental implant repair is when a dentist needs to make an adjustment of some kind due to a problem with the implant. Different problems have different causes and solutions. Below outlines the two most common types of damage that we see and what causes each type:
Dental Implant Damage.
This issue is actually quite rare as the materials used are so strong, however, occasionally it happens. The tooth replacement may become worn or chipped and in very rare cases, the implant itself may be damaged. In these cases the damaged components need replacement.
Causes. This can sometimes be caused by a defect in the components or excess stress to the implant, like teeth grinding. In some cases, the implant doesn't properly heal, causing issues.
A loose implant is a dental implant that isn't properly immobilized. This can cause mild to severe movement which can, in turn, cause pain or discomfort. Treatment typically consists of tightening the components or replacing them entirely.
Causes. The most common causes are issues related to placement, healing, implant stress, bone loss, and gum disease.
