Replace Teeth with Dental Implants

Implants are often the best way to replace a missing tooth. The implant itself is a titanium artificial tooth root on upon which a crown is placed. Replacing missing teeth with implants will allow you to chew and smile confidently. We are proud to team up with specialist in the area to offer this service to our patients.

The dental implant is surgically inserted under local anesthetic. Once healed, the artificial root (implant) acts as a base for the visible portion of the tooth (restoration).

The dental implant can be used to replace:

  • an individual tooth
  • more than one tooth
  • all teeth

If you are looking for an implant dentist, you’ve come to the right place. Dr. Matthews and his dedicated staff treat your family like their family, and are the team you can trust in eastern North Carolina for your dental implants. Call today to schedule an appointment!

Routine exams are essential to discover small problems before they become bigger problems. Cavities, Gum disease, oral cancer, and other dental problems are easier and cheaper to treat in the early stages.
