Dental Implants in Greensboro, High Point, and Winston-Salem
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants have become a major advancement in replacing missing teeth, protecting oral health, and enhancing smiles. Advanced implant technology delivers the closest resemblance to one of your own natural teeth.
An implant is made of a titanium fixture, abutment, and crown. The fixture acts as a tooth root and goes through a process called osseointegration which allows the titanium to integrate with your jawbone, adding maximum durability and support for your restoration.
After the gums have healed after placing the implant, the natural-looking, restoration will be attached to the abutment and blend seamlessly with your smile. You’ll be able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again without worrying about your teeth.
This video shows you how a dental implant substitutes the root structure of a missing rear tooth, along with the placement of a special healing cap to promote the best result for the final tooth replacement.

Immediate Load Implants
Are you looking to restore your smile in just one day with dental implants? Immediate load implants allow Drs. Keith and Dan MacDonald and Dr. Whaley to place an implant and temporary restoration all in one day. There’s no need to wait for weeks or even months for it to heal. See if you qualify by scheduling a consultation.
A full-arch implant bridge is a great option for patients who are missing multiple teeth close together, but still obtain healthy teeth on both sides of the gap. That way two implants can be placed with the support of your natural teeth.
Mini Dental Implants
Just as its name implies, mini dental implants are just a smaller version of traditional implants. However, with mini dental implants, not as much bone is needed to be successful. It’s a great option for patients who have suffered greater bone resorption and don’t qualify for a regular-sized implant.
Sometimes, not every patient who wants to restore their smile with dental implants can automatically undergo the treatment process. A supplemental procedure can help patients regain their oral health and prepare them for a successful implant.
At Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, we want to help anyone who is looking to invest in dental implants to be able to receive them. We offer bone grafting and tooth extraction with immediate replacement to improve our patients’ health.
Extraction Immediate Replacement
Teeth that are infected or decayed will need to be removed before they’re able to receive implants. Luckily, we can extract a tooth and place an implant fixture all in the same day with our immediate replacement procedure.
Bone grafting is a procedure that helps rebuild lost jawbone. When people suffer from tooth loss, their jaw begins to weaken because their tooth root is no longer there to stimulate it. Bone grafts are taken, typically from another part of the patient’s body, and placed in the jawbone so it can regenerate.
