If you have a missing tooth, several missing teeth, or wear full or partial dentures, consider dental implants. Dental implants are permanent fixtures that replace both the tooth and the tooth root.
To begin the process, Dr. Saib will recommend you to a reputable oral surgeon or periodontist. He or she will surgically place a titanium “root” into the area of the missing tooth.
Once the gums, bone, and surrounding tissue have healed and attached to the root, you return to Dr. Saib for the finishing touches. Dr. Saib will create a beautiful porcelain tooth to be permanently seated on the “root.” He will design the tooth (or teeth) to blend with your other healthy teeth for a look that is completely natural.
Dental implants have been commonly used for over thirty years now and are some of the most successful treatments in dentistry. Dental implants may need to be restored with a new tooth.
If you have dental implants that are old, worn or failing, Dr. Saib would be happy to restore them.
With Dr. Saib’s artistry and expertise, the result is a tooth that looks, feels and functions just as a natural tooth. With dental implants you are once again free to eat, speak and smile with complete confidence and comfort.
Single Tooth Implant
If you’re missing a tooth, you know what a tremendous impact it can have on the appearance of your smile, your confidence and your comfort.
But did you know that missing teeth could wreak havoc on your health, too? The space left by a missing tooth (or teeth) allows your remaining healthy teeth to shift and move in your mouth. This movement can completely alter your bite, causing a range of problems from abnormal tooth wear to severe TMJ pain.
Chapel Hill dentist Dr. Bilal Saib has the perfect solution: Dental implants.
A dental implant is a permanent fixture placed in your mouth to replace both the tooth and the tooth root. Implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth and can also be used to hold full and partial dentures securely in place.
If you have one or several missing teeth and want a permanent solution, call Dr. Saib today 919.933.3388.
Do you wear dentures that slip when you talk, chew or smile? Are you tired of the hassle of taking care of your dentures every night?
If so, you owe it to your smile, your confidence and your comfort to consider implant supported dentures. To get started, just talk with Dr. Bilal Saib at Chapel Hill Advanced Dentistry.
Implant supported dentures are a comfortable and secure tooth-replacement alternative that function more like your natural teeth.
Dr. Saib works closely with oral surgeons and periodontists to carefully place the titanium implants into the area of the missing teeth. Once the area has healed, Dr. Saib will craft dentures that look natural, fit securely and restore your confidence.
The dentures can be made to be removable, but with a “snap-in” fit without covering your palate. In some cases, we can place permanent dentures that cannot be removed and offer the comfort of a perfect bite, so you can smile, eat and function the way you did when you were sixteen!
Dr. Saib is one of a few dentists in North Carolina who does “complex” dental implant reconstructions on a daily basis. He teaches local dentists how to plan and restore these life altering restorations.
If you have implant supported dentures, but feel they are getting old and not looking their best, Dr. Saib can restore them or create new ones to fit on your existing implants.
