Achieve Your Best Smile
The loss of teeth can drastically affect your daily life and oral health. If you’re tired of living with missing teeth, our dental professionals at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry are here to help. As the number one restorative solution, dental implants replace any number of missing teeth for a smile that’s fully functional and natural in appearance.
Dr. MacDonald and the rest of our Triad dentists will craft a customized treatment plan to ensure all of your dental needs are met with stunning results. Discover how dental implants can improve your life below.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the leading restorative treatment for replacing missing teeth. This restoration has become a major advancement in replacing teeth, protecting oral health, and transforming smiles. Implants are specially designed to mimic the natural tooth root for a naturally functioning smile. The Triad dental team will use advanced technology to place the titanium posts into the jawbone for a lifetime of healthy smiling.
Each dental implant is made up of three unique parts:
- The Implant: A titanium post that serves as your new tooth root and is permanently attached to your jaw.
- The Abutment: A permanent connector that supports one or more restorations.
- The Custom Restoration: This is a visible part of your implant and is typically a porcelain crown to ensure durability and a natural look.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have become a revolutionary restorative treatment that provides unmatched benefits, including:
- Natural look, feel, and function
- Permanently secured to your jaw
- Stimulates healthy bone growth
- Stable and comfortable
- Easy to care for
- Resistant to decay
- Can last a lifetime

Setting Patients up
for Implant Success
In certain cases, patients don’t immediately qualify for dental implant treatment. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t replace your teeth with implants. Dr. MacDonald provides supplemental procedures for patients who need to regain their oral health and prepare them for successful implant treatment.
At Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, we want to help anyone who’s 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 need to be removed before the implant procedure. Luckily, we can extract a tooth and place an implant fixture all on 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
The first couple of weeks after your dental implant procedure are crucial to the overall success of the treatment. Your dentist will provide you with post-op instructions that should be carefully followed during your recovery. Post-op instructions include limiting your diet to soft foods and liquids, avoiding smoking and drinking alcohol, and rinsing your mouth with warm salt water after meals.
Once you’ve fully healed, your implants can be cared for just like natural teeth. You don’t need any special tools or products to maintain your restoration. Make sure to brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit our Archdale, NC dental office twice a year for regular checkups.
The cost of your dental implants will vary depending on a variety of factors. Factors that influence the total cost of implant treatment include the condition of your oral health, how many dental implants you need, and your insurance plan. Our dental team recommends contacting your insurance provider for an in-depth explanation of your coverage before starting treatment. If you have any other questions about the cost of dental implants, call our Archdale dental office at (336) 434-3186, and one of our knowledgeable team members will be happy to help.
Patients who are missing one or more teeth, are in good oral health standing, and have sufficient bone density are typically great candidates for dental implants. If you don’t meet all the requirements, our Triad Cosmetic Dentistry team can help. We offer certain supplemental procedures, such as a bone graft, to get you ready for successful implant treatment.
