An incomplete smile can leave you looking and feeling less than your best. If you live in Goldsboro and you’re missing one or more teeth, our North Carolina dentists are qualified to provide advanced tooth replacement using dental implants.

Three of our dentists have undergone extensive training and have the experience to provide you full implant dentistry treatment: Dr. William Boles Jr., Dr. Harvey Ham, and Dr. Scott Dixon. Many dentists say that they perform dental implants when in reality they only provide the final crown or other restoration.

Drs. Boles, Ham, and Dixon, however, perform each step of the dental implant process, including:

  • Diagnosing your tooth loss and determining whether or not implants are the right restoration solution for you
  • Developing a custom treatment plan to meet your unique oral health and aesthetic needs
  • Surgically placing the artificial tooth root beneath the gum line
  • Once the implant has successfully bonded with the jaw bone, creating and attaching a custom crown or other false tooth

Because of the steps involved, including oral surgery and a recovery period that can last six weeks or longer, it’s important to visit qualified implant dentists who have ongoing experience with the best materials and techniques. Our dentists enjoy a very high success rate with dental implants, and they will closely assess whether or not you’re a candidate before recommending this procedure.

Please contact Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles or call 252-291-2892today to learn more about dental implants. Dr. Boles Jr., Dr. Dixon, and Dr. Ham all serve patients in Goldsboro and other North Carolina communities.
