What are Dental Implants?
Missing and damaged teeth can be a hassle when it comes to everyday life including eating and drinking. But, dental implants are a way to help you regain your life back. Dental implants are a long term solution for patients who suffer from missing teeth, damaged teeth, or chronic dental problems because dental implants are surgically infused metal post or frames inside the jaw-line beneath the gums, which keeps it stable and secure.
Dental implants are artificial and natural looking tooth roots that give a permanent foundation for a replaced or fix tooth. Dr. Schmorr and her team of professionals artificially create a tooth or teeth with titanium screws that allow the tooth to be safely secured to the dental implant. Once created and secured, the tooth will look and feel natural and function just like a real tooth would.
The dental implants from Six Forks Smiles are strong and durable to last many years. Normal wear may require replacing or adjusting your dental implant.
Porcelain crowns are a great alternative when recreating a tooth because it has the same principals, form, and function because it replaces the whole external portion of the tooth down tot he gum and jawline. Porcelain crowns are tooth shaped caps that are placed on top of the tooth to restore the tooth’s size and shape. Crowns are individually sculpted to mimic and replicate the damaged tooth while adding more resilience, durability, and strength to the tooth.

What Dental Implants in Raleigh Involve?
When getting a dental implant, the process can take up to several visits and several months to our Raleigh dentist office.
At the initial consultation, Dr. Schmorr or her associates will take x-ray and impressions of your teeth and jaw to see if you would be an excellent candidate for a dental implant. Once the reviews are examined and confirmed, the dentist will numb the affected area and surgically infuse the dental implant into the jawline. Once completed, the six-month healing process will begin. After the healing and depending on the type of implant you receive, a second surgery may be necessary; however, the dentist will discuss all your options with you prior to the first surgery.
After the implant(s) has healed, Dr. Schmorr and her associate dentists will create artificial teeth and fit them to the post. Your fitting may take several visits, and up to two months to complete. Once the teeth are secured to the post, your implant will provide your teeth with stability and comfort.
Once your dental implant is complete, Dr. Schmorr will give you care instructions and go over good oral hygiene to ensure the life of your implant.
