How can Raleigh area patients utilize dental implants?

Dr. Carl McMillan of Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers can help patients in and around the area of Raleigh with their dental restoration needs. When patients are missing one or more teeth, they may be overwhelmed at the restorative choices offered by dentists. The three most common options include:

  • Dentures
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implants

Dentures are typically removable and can be used when there is an issue with one or more teeth. Most patients think of dentures as full dentures, but there are also partial dentures that are made of metal and acrylic framework and snap into the dental arch to replace one or several teeth. They are economical but many patients don’t like the fact that they must be taken out and cleaned separately.


Dental bridges are porcelain restorations that use two crowns and pontics (false teeth) fused into once piece. They are bonded over the adjacent teeth and they can provide a more permanent way to replace teeth. However, they require special care and attention, as they need to be flossed underneath. Patients can still develop periodontal disease and cavities on the teeth underneath the bridge.


This is why many patients love the use of dental implants. At our practice, we offer holistic solutions such as zirconium implants, which are biocompatible, life-long restorations that do not require any additional care other than what the other teeth already receive. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, support a dental bridge, or stabilize full dentures. These versatile solutions are a great way for patients to feel confident with their smiles and enjoy the advantages of today’s dental solutions.


If you live in or around the area of Raleigh and want to be educated on the methods of repair available through our practice, contact the Cary or Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers today to book a consultation visit. We may recommend dental implants for you if you are a proper candidate, or guide you to alternatives that may best fit your specific needs.
