Teeth restorations have created new opportunities to improve oral health for people with missing teeth. As a functional support for biting and chewing and a cosmetic enhancement for the smile, teeth restorations continue to make a big difference in the lives of many Americans. Among all the prosthodontic replacements for lost teeth, dental implants have a special position because of their design and functionality. They are custom-made to integrate with the supporting bone of patients. Dental professionals are specially trained to perform dental implant surgery. The successful completion of the complex treatment procedure can ensure that implanted tooth last for the lifetime of patient. At Apex Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we take special care of patients with missing teeth. Our dental implants have effectively improved the oral health of many of our valuable patients from Apex, Cary and the surrounding communities of NC.Dangers of tooth loss
Statistics show that a considerable amount of total population in the United States suffers from tooth loss during the age 20-64. It is one of the major problems faced by people. The obvious effect of tooth loss is on chewing efficiency. The confidence to eat hard food substances may reduce because of teeth loss. Missing teeth can also create an imbalance in bite forces that results in shifting of nearby teeth. Not just that, the gap in the dentition caused from teeth loss can increase food lodgment around soft gum tissues. This increases the chances of dental infection. When there are several teeth missing in a row, the jawbone starts to resorb due to lack of support.Dental Implant Surgery
Dental implants have been the most reliable teeth restorations in prosthodontics. They are basically metal posts which are designed to integrate finely with the jawbone. Dental professionals surgically place the implants in the jawbone. The patient should have sufficient jawbone to successfully hold the implant. The dentist takes X-rays and scans the oral cavity to check if there is enough bone to support the implant. Gum disease, if found, is taken care of before going ahead with treatment. Restoring a lost tooth using implant may require two visits. During the first visit the dentist carefully torques the implant into the jawbone and leaves it to heal. The healing may take few months.
Dentist takes impressions of teeth and gets the dental crown fabricated in the lab. Crowns are made of porcelain material which makes them look very natural. The crown can be either screwed or cemented over the implant through an abutment. Once fixed in place, the dentist advises patient about how to care for the restoration. With optimum care, dental implants can last for about two to three decades without any repair required during the term.

Dr. Chirnalli and his staff are fantastic! They are friendly and welcoming and create a very comfortable easy going atmosphere. With every visit, they take such good care of us from routine cleanings to more extensive work. I recently had a bad root canal and crown redone by Dr. Chirnalli and for the first time in 8 years that tooth is pain free. He really listens and cares about your health. I had been told by other dentists that it would just take time for the tooth to settle down or that it would have to be pulled. I'm so glad that we found Apex Smiles!" Stefanie BraceyMore Reviews
I was scared of going to new dentist just like any one else but had to find one after moving to the area. After talking to Ms. Jean at the Front Desk and then to Dr. Chirnalli casually, I felt very comfortable and did not hesitate at all getting an appointment for initial evaluation. I am so happy that I went to Apex Smiles as they have been able to treat me well above my expectations. The ambiance of the office, friendliness of the staff and the personal touch of Dr. Chirnalli is a perfect recipe for having a dentist of your choice. I take pride in recommending Apex Smiles to everyone I come to know who is looking for one so is here on Google who is looking for no nonsense dental office." Tushar ModiMore Reviews
Dr. Chirnalli is the best dentist I have ever visited. The staff at Apex Smiles are like family to me. I have had a couple dental emergencies, and called them, and they said "Just get to the office, and we will work you into the schedule." He has all of the newest technology, and he is more than willing to spend time with you.More Reviews
I hate Novocaine shots !!! I will break out in a cold sweat. I broke out in a cold sweat driving to my appointment just thinking about it. Dr. Chirnalli is the first dentist that has given me shots, and it didn't hurt much. I am comfortable going to the dentist now.
Dr. Chirnalli and staff are wonderful.
I highly recommend Apex Smiles." Rob A
I have been a patient of Dr. Chirnalli for over 4 years and I'm still very pleased. Dr. Chirnalli has done an amazing job with repairing previous worn teeth due to grinding using the latest technology and experience. Over 3 years ago Dr. Chirnalli repaired my damaged tooth and still to this day it's in great shape. His ability to color match is incredible! He truly cares and takes the time to explain things thoroughly and gives expert advice. I never feel like he's out there to take advantage of me as a patient but instead is honest and personable. I'm also very thankful for the professionalism and enjoyable personality of his hygienist Allison Maton. Allison is awesome!!!! Thank you Apex Smiles for taking care of my dental needs.
