Restoring Smiles, One Tooth at a Time

A dental implant can restore function, health, and beauty to those who are missing teeth. Dr. Schlotterer, our dentist in Durham, works closely with oral surgeons and periodontists to complete your dental implant. Designed to replace both the root and crown of a tooth, implants are placed in a series of appointments. First, the oral surgeon or periodontist will place the implant (titanium screw or man-made root) into the jawbone. After a healing period, Dr. Schlotterer will attach the custom dental implant crown onto the implant. When complete, you will enjoy increased strength, stability, health, and aesthetics. Call Digital Dentistry at Southpoint to discover how implant dentistry can change your smile, oral health, and life for the better.
