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.

"This place is fantastic. Although When i arrived to my appointment there was some confusion on the work that needed to be done on me. I have to say it was a little upsetting since I explained what I needed over the phone when making the appointment. However, I was very pleased with my dental higuenist Alice Elizando who took the time to sit with me and explain what happened and also answered many of my concerns about my treatment. I really appreciated her patience, professionalism and over all good attitude. I’ve also had great experiences dealing with Barbara ( the office manager). She really knows her stuff and is pleasant to deal with. I have to say that dealing with these types of caring professionals makes this place great!"- C.R. / Google / May 07, 2018

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.
