Dental Implants

  • Schedule a consultation. Schedule a consultation with Drs. Benton or Nelson at our Winston-Salem office. All treatment options will be explained to you after careful evaluation, diagnosis, and planning. 
  • Decide if a dental implant is the best choice for you. Our doctors will listen to your goals and customize a plan that fits your needs, budget, and lifestyle. After hearing all of your options, you can decide if a dental implant, or alternative treatment option, is best for you.

High success rate. Dental implants have a very high success rate of over 95%.

Permanent tooth replacement. Dental implants are a permanent restoration for single to multiple teeth.

Won’t come out. Dental implants will not come out when eating or talking.

You can chew again. You can chew anything with your dental implant that you can with natural teeth.

Maintain them just like your natural teeth. Dental implants require brushing and flossing, just like you would take care of your natural teeth. 

Very esthetic. The crown (the part that is visible in the mouth) is made of the same tooth-colored material that dentists use for crowns or veneers and will match your natural teeth.

Can’t get cavities. Dental implants are made of high-quality materials that cannot get dental decay.

Protect adjacent tooth structures. Dental implants prevent the recession of natural bone and gum tissue.

Don’t need to treat adjacent teeth. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants don’t require modifications or treatment to your adjacent teeth.
