About Dental Implants
For a long-lasting and natural-looking replacement to missing teeth, modern dental techniques at DentalWorks - High Point in High Point, NC by our dentists offer dental implants to help restore a beautiful, healthy smile. Dental implants surgically place titanium posts in the jawbone to mimic the natural tooth root, so false teeth can be attached for a secure fit that doesn't require food restrictions or glues. The false teeth can be colored and contoured by our dentists to match the patient's teeth for a realistic appearance. For anyone who is missing one tooth or more, dental implants at DentalWorks - High Point can be a great, long-lasting solution.

What to Expect
Before a dental implant is placed, a thorough examination will be conducted by our dentists to assess the health and strength of the gums and jawbone. If the patient is a good candidate for dental implants, digital X-rays and physical impressions will help our dentists to determine the best placement for the dental implants during the procedure. The individual will be given local anesthesia and sedation if needed while our dentists place the titanium post into the jawbone. Over the course of 3 - 6 months, the implant and jawbone will fuse while healing and once the implant is secure, the false tooth or teeth will be attached to the implant using a connector. Our dentists will adjust the implant and replacement teeth for a comfortable and secure fit.
Most patients have little to no pain after their dental implants are finished, but some patients may have temporary tenderness and discomfort that can be relieved with an over-the-counter pain medication, such as aspirin or Tylenol®. To prolong the life of dental implants, patients should have a good home oral care routine including daily brushing and flossing. Regular dental appointments at DentalWorks - High Point in High Point, NC for professional cleanings and exams are also important to implant care. Dental implants can last a long time with proper care, but dental implants may eventually need to be repaired or replaced.
If dental implants are proven to be a medical need, the patient's dental insurance plan will usually cover part of the bill. However, cosmetic dental implants are often not covered by insurance companies. During the patient's consultation, the office staff of DentalWorks - High Point can calculate their insurance coverage and go over payment options and financing plans.
