Dental Implants Cary & Fuquay Varina NC
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. For more information about dental implants or to schedule a consultation appointment, call our office at Cary Office Phone Number 919-567-3293.
Dental Implants Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.
What are wisdom teeth?
Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.
What is an impacted tooth?
An impacted tooth simply means that it is “stuck” and cannot erupt into function. Patients frequently develop problems with impacted third molar (wisdom) teeth. These teeth get “stuck” in the back of the jaw and can develop painful infections, among a host of other problems (see Wisdom Teeth under Procedures). Since there is rarely a functional need for wisdom teeth, they are usually extracted if they develop problems. The maxillary cuspid (upper eyetooth) is the second most common tooth to become impacted. The cuspid tooth is a critical tooth and plays an important role in your “bite”. The cuspid teeth are very strong biting teeth and have the longest roots of any human teeth. They are designed to be the first teeth that touch when your jaws close together, so they guide the rest of the teeth into the proper bite.
You and Dr. Mahar may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

Patient Testimonial from Mike H
Dr. Mahal and his staff are absolutely the best! This was my first extraction of a tooth and prep for a implant. When I arrived the assistant got me right back and prepared me for the procedure. I remember speaking to Dr Mahar and then I asked him when we were going to start and his assistant said we are done! Wow! I never knew or felt anything! Afterwards I had no pain in recovery and he was so nice as he called to check on me later that day. I can say I was apprehensive going in but I am sold! I look forward to finishing my treatment in 3 months! I recommend this practice to anyone who needs an oral surgeon! Thank you Dr. Mahar and your staff! You are the best!

Patient Testimonial from Hal J
Dr. Mahar was just great. I don't usually write reviews but anyone needing their services would do well to see Dr. Mahar and Staff. He worked quickly and confidently to remove a broken wisdom tooth and started an implant on another missing tooth all at the same time. His prices are VERY competitive and I had very little pain or discomfort at all. I experienced very little bleeding and I believe it's because he did such a good job. He also removed my daughter's wisdom teeth a couple years ago as she experienced the same great service. Highly recommend !!

Patient Testimonial from Judi C
Thankful that I went here for my procedure. Always a pleasant experience. He did an extraction and an implant. Each procedure explained clearly. Just the fact that he calls his patients after their procedure is very special. I have never had a doctor do that. Thanks to all the Staff and Dr. Mahar for everything.

Patient Testimonial from Michelle P
Dr. Mahar is a godsend! I’ve struggled with migraines the last several months, unsure what the cause may be. Little did I know, these migraines were a direct result of an embarrassingly decayed tooth I wasn’t ready to face, due to a horrendous dental history. I opted out of sedation, wanting to be aware of what was happening in the room and didn’t feel pressured to go under. Dr. Mahar and team worked in unison, talking me thru every pontentially scary sound coming from my mouth and explaining the necessity of a bone graft as a solid foundation in preparation for my future implant. The extraction was pain-free, and surprisingly, the injections didn’t phase me as he distracted me with pleasant conversation. I felt safe and well taken care of. Never once did I feel embarrassed or discriminated against because of my dental history. To follow up, I received a call and then a text message to inquire about how I was feeling, encouraging me to call him directly with any questions or concerns. My stitches were artistically placed and allowed me to go right back to work without a fuss and no nasty “post dental work mouth.” Anyone in search of a skilled AND personable oral surgeon, South Wake Oral Surgedy is my only recommendation. Dr. Mahar, thank you, thank you, thank you! Here’s to a great night’s sleep and no more migraines! I am looking so forward to my upcoming implant and am in awe of the instant relief.

Patient Testimonial from Matthew T
I can not say enough about this place. I had 4 wisdom teeth removed today. The staff were very professional and caring. Dr. Mahar has already followed up with me this evening. If you need oral surgery this is the place to go!
