Dental Implants in Cary NC
What are dental implants?
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.
The difference is that the implant is made of titanium — the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.
Please read some of our dental implant Patient Reviews below.
Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.
“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”
For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.
Surgical Advances in Dental Implants
Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Mahar is able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction – further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.
Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Dr. Mahar performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

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.
