Dental implants are the only treatment for missing teeth that are designed to mimic the natural anatomy of the tooth they’re replacing. Made from biocompatible materials that fuse directly with your body, today’s dental implants are the optimal choice for restoring your smile’s function and appearance.
No matter how many missing teeth you have, dental implants can provide a lifelong investment that’s designed to look and feel like the real thing. Because they stand independently, they are non-invasive to your neighboring teeth; in fact, they help to support proper tooth alignment and bone support, both of which tend to become compromised after losing a tooth.

Multi-tooth dental bridges
Implant supported removable overdentures

For our patients that may not be candidates for traditional treatment, our Cary, NC specialist offers supportive gum and bone grafts , enhancing the options available for your missing teeth needs.
You can even elect to have sedation dentistry throughout the procedure, for enhanced comfort. From extracting non-restorable teeth to final placement and restoration of your new implants, everything is completed in one central location.
Most implant cases usually begin with a CBCT 3D scan of your mouth. This provides a very accurate image of your teeth and jaw bone, allowing for precise implant planning. Dr. Kazmer will also discuss your treatment plan with your general dentist to work out any behind-the-scenes details that need to go into your dental implant process prior to treatment.
We will guide you every step of the way, beginning with your initial assessment all the way through the surgical placement and follow-up. Because your experience is well planned up front, there are no surprises along the way. You’ll have all of the information that you need to make an educated decision about your oral health experience.
You don’t necessarily need a new dental implant for each tooth that’s missing. We can use pairs or sets of implants to support multi-tooth or full-arch restorations like the All-on-4® treatment concept. During your exam, Dr. Kazmer will be able to provide you with an estimate as to how many are appropriate for your situation.
We want to help you preserve any healthy natural teeth for as long as possible. However, if your teeth are non-restorable and need to be extracted, dental implants offer the best and most effective form of treatment for missing teeth.
Having a dental implant placed is more comfortable than you’d think! Using The Wand® computerized anesthesia delivery, our Cary, NC periodontist can place your implants with no discomfort or pain. In addition, sedation dentistry is an option that can be considered as well.
When properly cared for, dental implants are made to last for many decades.
Yes. Now that your dental implant treatment is complete prevention is of utmost importance. We want your implants to be problem-free for the years to come. It’s important that you continue making regular checkups/cleaning appointments and have radiographs performed occasionally to make sure the bone remains healthy.
Fortunately, most major dental insurance plans do cover at least a portion of your dental implant costs. Our financial coordinators will work closely with your carrier to estimate your coverage, so that you have a general idea of which benefits to expect before moving forward with your treatment.
The fee for dental implants is dependent on more than just how many implants you need. Other factors such as tooth removal, bone grafts, sinus lifts, laser dentistry procedures, or the type of restoration you select will all play a roll in the total dental implant cost.
Your dental implants are only the “root” portion of your new restoration. On top of your implants you will have an abutment, which supports or stabilizes the restoration placed on top of it. Which one you select will be a key factor in your dental implant cost.
While there is no straightforward answer as to the exact fee for getting dental implants, we can provide you with a detailed cost estimate after evaluating your unique oral anatomy, discussing which teeth need to be replaced, determining the total number of implants that you need, and selecting the final restoration that will be attached on top of them.
If you’ve been told that you’re not a candidate for traditional implant therapy, then implant supported dentures are a wonderful option to consider. These full arch implant solutions replace all of your missing teeth at one time, without complex surgeries or lengthy recovery times.
