Dental Implants for Durham, NC
Southpoint Family Dentistry is a modern, conscientious general dentistry practice conveniently located near RTP, South Durham, downtown Durham, Brier Creek, and parts of Morrisville/Cary. We are a dedicated and sincere team of dental health professionals who make every attempt to optimize our patients' oral health in a relaxed manner while keeping their best interests in mind. The practice offers ample free parking and is located near many local thoroughfares and has been recently updated for a more pleasant experience. We work steadily with the top local specialists who share our commitment to sincere, top-notch outcomes and participate with many popular dental networks. Some of our best patients have been referred to us by our best patients, and we look forward to continuing connecting with people from all walks of life while striving for optimal oral health.
Routine visits/checkups are the best way to maintain oral (and systemic health) and also to identify problems sooner rather than later. Our hygienists are warm and knowledgeable and will make every effort to guide patients towards optimal oral health and hygiene and nurture long-term relationships.
Depending on circumstances, preferences, and an individual patient's systemic health, dental implants and dentures are popular ways to replace missing teeth. From single tooth loss to more extensive cases, there are a variety of options. For some cases, dentures can be combined with implants to result in a higher level of retention, function, and confidence.
Composite resin is the standard of care in most cases which require simple fillings. Modern bonding agents are chemically designed and tested to offer solid long-term results and excellent aesthetics. Occasionally, a temporary material called IRM is placed for some potential concerns.
We have recently introduced the Solea all tissue laser. Many procedures can be completed without local anesthetic (no shot) with minimal or no discomfort. (ilovesloea.com)
SFD does not place dental amalgam (silver fillings).
Some dental emergencies can have simple solutions, while other dental emergencies require more comprehensive treatment. SFD makes every attempt to schedule patients as soon as possible for the initial assessment and sometimes address the problem by the very next day. Solutions can range from acute pain management and referral to a specialist to a quick replacement filling or denture repair.
We are Invisalign® certified and would be happy to discuss whether it is a good option for interested patients.
SFD is in-network for these dental insurance plans
We are happy to see patients regardless of their brand or level of dental insurances (or lack of dental insurance). We kindly request estimated copays at the time of service but will file insurances for all patients.
