More than 20 percent of North Carolina seniors are missing all of their teeth. According to The Washington Post, this unfortunate statistic could be the result of a high number of residents skipping a yearly dental checkup; North Carolina ranks slightly below the national average in the percentage of citizens who have visited a dentist in the past year.

If a loved one has suffered the loss of some or all of their teeth, our Wilson family dentists might be able to help them restore their smile with dental implants. Dr. Harvey Ham, Dr. Scott Dixon, and Dr. William Boles, Jr. are all experienced implant dentists who can evaluate a patient’s candidacy and perform the procedure to suit their unique needs.

Unlike dentures or other tooth replacement options, dental implants permanently fill the gap left by lost teeth. Implants have a number of additional benefits over the alternatives, including:

  • Prevents bone loss by fusing with existing bone tissue to revitalize the jaw
  • The restoration is anchored securely within the mouth, rather than shifting during everyday activity
  • Caring for the implant is as simple as practicing good dental hygiene
  • With proper care, dental implants can last an entire lifetime

Our implant dentists have undergone extensive education and training so that each step of the procedure can be completed at our Wilson office. Throughout your dental implant treatment you will be attended to by dentists and staff members who understand your needs and are dedicated to providing you the best treatment possible.

To find out more about dental implants, please contact Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles or call 252-291-2892 to schedule a consultation at our office in Wilson. We provide a variety of restoration treatments for combating tooth loss.
