Never Remove Your Teeth Again!
Many patients of all ages suffer from missing teeth. Over 40 million people in the U.S. have lost not just one but all of their teeth. Since this problem is so widespread, there are many ways for patients to restore lost detention and repair their smile. With new technology, doctors can provide more affordable and comfortable restorations. To replace your missing teeth, visit our dentist, Dr. Alok Sharda, for modern All-on-4® and All-on-6® restoration!
Replace All of Your Missing Teeth With a Permanent, Titanium Bridge
When deciding on a dental restoration, our dentist will keep in mind the overall function of your smile. The force and alignment of your bite is just as important as the look of your teeth. These will help keep jaw movement comfortable and prevent future damage.
Missing teeth can take a toll on your self-esteem. Butner Creedmoor Family Dentistry provides full restoration, whether the tooth was lost last week or last year. We believe it is never to late to have a beautiful, complete smile. Though there are many ways to restore your smile, dental implants have many advantages, including:
- Over time, implants tend to have a high success rate for many patients, with the help of effective, thorough planning.
- Unlike other restorations, implants don’t need to grind down or otherwise prepare any neighboring teeth.
- Dental implants prevent bone loss by replacing the lost root, as well as the crown, of the tooth. This provides stimulation and pressure to the jawbone, encouraging healthy growth.
- Dental implants are very durable and stable, so patients don’t have to worry about “losing” their replacement teeth.
To go over all the benefits of this procedure, plan a dental implant consultation in Creedmoor, North Carolina, today. Our dentist can go over and plan your dental implant. The implant itself is a small post made of durable titanium that is screwed into the bone of the jaw. Together with you, our dentist will recommend a restoration, such as a crown or bridge, to cover the post. Once the implant is finished, patients can easily take care of their restoration for years to come simply by brushing and flossing as normal.
A Safer Way to Place Dental Implants
Our practice is dedicated to making our procedures effective, comfortable and safe for all our patients. Part of that is using the latest tools and imaging processes to improve your care. Our CBCT (cone beam imaging) machine helps our dentist plan your treatment during your first appointment.
- First, our office will ask for your medical and dental history. This will help inform your treatment along with dental X-rays, photographs and CBCT scan.
- Like X-rays, the CBCT machine only emits a small amount of radiation, safe enough for patients of all ages. However, unlike X-rays, the cone beam technology is able to quickly take hundreds of pictures, creating a full 3D replica of your teeth, gums, jawbone and other facial structures. Using this comprehensive model, our dentist can then accurately identify issues, create custom appliances and complete your smile.
- Once the CBCT map has been created, we can then create a surgical guide for your procedure. Our dentist can then use this to place your implant at the proper angle and depth, helping ensure results.
Better Results That Are Built to Last
Whether you are looking to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or an entire dental arch, our office is here to help. We work to provide high-quality treatment and excellent results. One of the ways we ensure your restoration is through “bioengineered components” custom designed to fit your needs and smile.
With any procedure, we work to go into the smallest details related to your treatment. For instance, when we place a dental crown, our dentist will analyze the position of the new tooth, its relation to neighboring teeth, the position of the jaw, stress on the tooth, the health of the gums and many other details. All these factors help create a restoration that will last, fit comfortably and create a healthy smile.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a candidate for All-on-4 and All-on-6 implants?
Our dentist will review each case on a patient-by-patient basis to determine who is eligible for denture-supported implants. Often, patients who already wear dentures or have lost all the teeth in a dental arch are the best candidates.
If I’ve suffered from bone loss and I’ve been told I’m ineligible for an implant, can I still receive an All-on-4 restoration?
Because the posts for denture-supported implants are placed at the front of the jaw, there is often no need for tissue restoration such as a bone graft or sinus lift. Because of this, patients who are not eligible for traditional implants or fixed bridges make good All-on-4 candidates.
What sets All-on-4 apart?
Unlike traditional implants, All-on-4 posts are placed in the front part of the jaw. Because the bone here is more dense, it provides a strong foundation for the new restoration. The post is also put in at an angle to better stabilize the implant and minimize the site restoration.
How long will my appointment take?
To restore a complete dental arch, most appointments take two hours. During the procedure, patients are put under sedation and then wake up with a full restoration!
Is there any discomfort?
Because the procedure is minimally invasive and is completed under sedation, patients rarely experience more than a little discomfort and swelling. Patients can also take anti-inflammatory medication before their appointment to prevent post-surgery discomfort.
How long will the site take to heal?
With All-on-4 procedures, there is no waiting for implant sites to heal. Unlike traditional implants, your new teeth can be placed on the same day as your implant surgery.
My teeth need to be extracted before I get dental implants. Will I need to wait before I get a fixed bridge?
Because of the advanced All-on-4 process, implants can be placed immediately after the extraction of the teeth. The restoration is placed on top of the implant, not the gums, so the tissue is allowed to heal following the procedure.
What is the cost of treatment?
Treatment cost can vary, though most treatments are at about half the cost of traditional implants. Unlike other offices, we don’t need to bring in other specialists, which can bring up the cost of treatment. Come in for a meeting with our dentist to discuss any concerns you may have about the cost of All-on-4. Our office can go over how to budget your treatment.
How do I start All-on-4 or All-on-6 treatment?
The first step towards your new smile is scheduling a consultation. Patients can plan their first restoration appointment by calling our office at 919-528-9500. During this first appointment, our dentist will take X-rays and photographs and determine if you are a good candidate.
