What Are Dental Implants?
Restoring your smile’s function and beauty.
Tooth loss doesn’t mean an end to your smile. Far from it!
While losing a tooth or multiple teeth can be devastating, Dr. Jennifer Pan offers your ideal tooth replacement option: Dental implants.
Implants are permanent and fixed restorations that look and feel natural, so you can enjoy a full smile once again.
Dental implants replace the tooth root to hold your restoration in place. We customize your replacement based on your needs, and this can include a natural-like crown, bridge, or denture.
If you’re experiencing tooth loss for the first time or looking to replace old dentures, then dental implants in Wilmington, NC may be your solution.

Implants restore your smile so you can feel confident.

What They Say about Us
"My case wasn’t an easy one as I underwent a major jaw reconstruction for a benign but destructive tumor. My surgery resulted in the loss of ten lower teeth which was quite devastating to me. I hated the way I looked and was extremely self-conscious. Dr. Pan was able to come up with an innovative plan for a lower partial plate that “snaps in place,” and this has given me a new lease on life. I feel so much more confident about my appearance, and my smile has returned."
- Lisa D.
"What a wonderful dental office, from the receptionist and the dental assistant and Dr. Pan. She was so concerned about my dental health and spent so much time with me. I highly recommend this office."
- Tony A.
We have the right solutions for you.
Replace All Your Teeth
An implant-retained denture restores all of your teeth or the majority in the upper or lower arch. Regular dentures can slide or fall out, but implant-supported ones stay securely in place using four dental implants on each arch.
Whether you need new dentures or have a lot of missing teeth, this solution may be for you. Get your full smile, confidence, and function back with implant-supported dentures in Wilmington, NC.
Replace Multiple Teeth
An implant-supported bridge replaces several teeth adjacent to one another. Traditional ones “bridge the gap” and are held by crowns attached to adjoining teeth, but this treatment uses crowns attached to implants.
When you have several missing teeth in a row, then an implant-supported bridge may be the answer. We can securely replace multiple missing teeth at once.
Replace a Single Tooth
A single dental implant replaces one missing tooth with a post and crown. Unlike traditional restorations in the past, this procedure replaces the entire tooth from top to bottom (crown to root).
If you’re missing a single tooth or have multiple missing teeth not adjacent to each other, then single dental implants may be for you.
