How can we help you?

At the office of Jeffrey J. Tibbs, DDS, patient education is the cornerstone of our practice. We know from experience that educated patients generally enjoy healthier smiles because they understand how their oral health affects their overall health and quality of life. 

We always have time for your questions because we don't expect you to be an expert on your oral health. Dr. Tibbs and our team are always more than happy to explain what we need to do and why we recommend a certain procedure. In addition to answering your questions, we also use state-of-the-art technology like digital x-rays and intraoral cameras that allow you to be an active participant in the process.

Your nutrition suffers when you can't properly chew your food, while your confidence may be diminished by the appearance of your smile without your tooth.

Price is determined based on how many implants you might need to restore your smile and what type of restorations you decide on. Dental implants in Winston-Salem, NC can restore a single tooth with a ceramic porcelain crown, and they're also capable of supporting dental bridges or partials and dentures for multiple tooth replacement.

When you lose a tooth, it’s critical to have it replaced as soon as possible. A gap in your smile is unattractive, but that’s not your biggest problem. You may find it difficult to speak clearly, and a missing tooth can make eating your favorite foods difficult or impossible

Replacing a Missing Tooth

At our office, we offer several tooth replacement solutions to fit your individual needs.

  • Full and partial dentures are a popular option because they work well for nearly everyone. If you resist the idea of dentures, you should know that technology and materials have dramatically improved their look, fit, and feel.
  • Dental implants are an ideal replacement because the implant post is rooted in your jaw and creates a stable base for the restoration we attach to it. We often use crowns to provide function for your implant, but we can also choose fixed bridges and full or partial dentures.
