About Dental Implants

The false teeth will be dyed and shaped by our dentists to fit in with the patient's teeth for a natural look. For patients who are need to replace a single tooth or several teeth, dental implants at DentalWorks - Fayetteville can be a wonderful, long-term choice.
"I was very happy with my visit. I had to bring my 9 month old in and they helped look after her for me while I got my x-rays and exam. The staff also didn't shoo me away when I nursed my daughter while getting my exam. On my first visit there they made me feel really comfortable and did not rush me might I add I was their last patient of the day and the dentist took her time and did a very thorough examination. I finally found a dentist home that I feel comfortable going to."- Y.C. / Google / Apr 29, 2019

"I haven’t been to the dentist in years. I was so nervous and embarrassed for waiting so long to go back. The care I received was outstanding. The X-ray tech made me feel at ease as she was doing the pictures. The hygienist was so nice and explained everything as she went. I then had the pleasure of meeting Dr. K. She was so gentle and reassuring throughout the examine. They had a cancelation so she asked if I wanted to start my treatment . I was in her chair for about 4 hours. I know that seems like along time but when I left the office I had a smile that I hadn’t seen in a very long time. She gave me my confidence back. I look forward for the first time ever to go back to the dentist to complete my smile. Thank you Dr.K for doing such great work!!!!! I appreciate all the staff in the office for making me feel so calm."- T.K. / Google / Apr 18, 2019
What to Expect
Before a dental implant is started, a full exam will be performed by our dentists to determine the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the individual is an acceptable candidate for dental implants, oral X-rays and impressions will assist our dentists to decide the ideal location for the dental implants in the jaw. The individual may be put under sedation and local anesthesia to relax the patient while our dentists put the titanium post into the jaw. In the next 3 - 6 months, the jawbone and implant will grow together while the bone heals and as soon as the dental implant is stable, the false tooth or teeth can be joined to the dental implant through a connector. Our dentists may alter the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and lasting fit.
Typical patients experience little or no discomfort following their dental implant procedure, however a few patients may experience short-term discomfort and tenderness that may be treated using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To extend the use of dental implants, patients should start a good home dental care regimen that includes daily brushing, flossing, and anything recommended by the dentist. Consistent appointments at DentalWorks - Fayetteville in Fayetteville, NC for dental cleanings and oral exams are also vital to caring for implants. Dental implants may last for a long time with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.
If dental implants are judged to be medically required, the patient's dental insurance policy will typically pay for some of the dental bill. Although, elective dental implants are ordinarily not paid by insurance plans. At the patient's dental consultation, the office employees of DentalWorks - Fayetteville can call about their insurance coverage and review payment methods and financing available through our office.
