Dental Implants: The Gold Standard for Replacing Missing Teeth at Scott A. Young DDS

At Scott A. Young DDS in Charlotte, NC, we believe everyone deserves a complete, confident smile. Dental implants offer a durable, long-term solution for replacing missing teeth, closely mimicking the look, feel, and function of natural teeth.

The Dental Implant Advantage:
Dental implants are made up of titanium posts surgically inserted into the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. Upon these posts, custom-made crowns are placed, providing a seamless addition to your smile. Unlike dentures or bridges, implants offer unparalleled stability and do not rely on adjacent teeth for support.

Key Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Natural Appearance and Feel: Designed to look and function like your natural teeth.
  • Durability: With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
  • Bone Preservation: Stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.
  • Improved Oral Health: Unlike traditional bridges, dental implants do not require altering surrounding teeth, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

Q: How long does the dental implant process take?
A: The process varies, depending on the individual's needs and healing capacity. Typically, it involves several months from implant placement to the fitting of the final crown, allowing for proper healing and bone integration.
Q: Is the dental implant procedure painful?
A: Patients are usually surprised at how minimal the discomfort is, especially with local anesthesia or sedation options. Post-procedure discomfort can generally be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
Q: Am I a candidate for dental implants?
A: Most individuals in good general health with sufficient jawbone to support implants can be candidates. A comprehensive evaluation by Dr. Young will determine if dental implants are the best solution for you.
Q: How do I care for my dental implants?
A: Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. With proper care, your implant can serve you well for many years.
