Are you missing teeth? If you live in North Carolina and you’re looking for permanent tooth replacement, our Wilson dentists can assess your suitability for dental implants.

Unlike dentures and other tooth replacement options, dental implants are a comprehensive solution. A custom crown fills the space in your smile while a small artificial tooth root (the implant itself) is surgically positioned directly beneath the gums.

Dental implants are the most advanced treatment available for replacing missing teeth. A variety of factors can affect the price of the procedure, including:

  • The dentist’s training and level of experience with implant dentistry
  • Where your dentist is located
  • The types of materials used
  • The extent of surgery – placing one implant will be less expensive than multiple implants
  • Whether or not additional surgeries are necessary, such as bone grafting

If you’re weighing tooth replacement options, one of the most important things to remember is that dental implants can last the rest of your life. The initial investment might sometimes be substantial, but it’s an investment that could lead to long-lasting dental health and improvement to your smile.

Another important consideration is finding a qualified, experienced implant dentist. At our office in Wilson, we have three: Dr. Boles Jr., Dr. Ham, and Dr. Dixon have undergone advanced training in the surgical placement of implants, and have successfully performed the procedure for many satisfied patients.
