What are Dental Implants?

Your Dental Implants Dentist in Winston-Salem

Worried about replacing missing or damaged teeth? It can be hard to find a replacement solution that compares to natural teeth. Fortunately, advanced technology makes the frustration of tooth loss much simpler.

Dental implants offer the same strength and aesthetic as natural teeth. At Winston-Salem Dental Group, we would be pleased to build your complete new smile with implant dentistry.

What are Dental Implants?

A tooth implant is a small titanium screw that resembles and functions like a real tooth root. Each tooth root is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Dental implants:

  • Fuse with the natural bone
  • Support and stimulate the jawbone
  • Prevent jawbone deterioration
  • Provide a solid anchor for replacement teeth

Later, we restore dental implants with dental crowns or dentures, giving you a confident smile!

Are Dental Implants Available to Everyone?

Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. Some patients that might not qualify for implant dentistry include:

  • Patients with extensive bone loss
  • Patients who smoke or have habits that may lead to bone loss
  • Patients with other health issues

At Winston-Salem Dental Group, we will evaluate your oral health and come up with a customized treatment plan. Our goal is to give you the most realistic smile possible.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Natural Feel: Patients find that dental implants feel the most like natural teeth. They feel more reliable than traditional dentures.

Comfort and Confidence: Dentures patients sometimes worry about ill-fitting dentures slipping or sliding while they chew and speak. Dental implants are anchored into the jawbone like true teeth are. They will never slide out of place, so you never have to worry!

Aesthetically Appealing: One of a patients’ favorite benefits of dental implants is that they look just like natural teeth. For many patients, this is the #1 concern for tooth replacement.
