Our smiles are designed to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, this is not always the case as life sometimes surprises us with the unexpected.

Merrell, along with their team at Weaverville Family Dentistry are here to help restore your smile to its proper function, health, and beauty. Our North Carolina dental practice proudly offers comprehensive dental implant treatment as our doctors place and finalize your tooth replacement therapy with a custom-crafted prosthetic specifically designed to match your individual smile.

The Advantages of Receiving Dental Implant Treatment from Drs. David and Jill Merrell
Healthy, secure teeth are vital to your oral health for a multitude of different reasons. One of the most essential being that natural teeth have healthy roots that provide vital stimulation your jawbone needs to stay strong, preserve proper dental function, maintain face shape, and keep teeth securely in place. When teeth are missing within the smile, so are their beneficial roots, and thus nothing is there to continually provide the jawbone with its much-needed significant stimulation.
Prolonged loss of this support will result in gum-tissue recession, as the body recognizes the tissue is no longer valuable. This resorption leads to neighboring teeth shifting towards the sites of missing teeth as well as facial features beginning to sag, creating a prematurely aged appearance.
Dental implants are highly reliable and successful solutions to resolving the many issues associated with tooth loss as they completely restore and replace the entire structure of a missing tooth, from root to crown. Dental Implants consist of biocompatible titanium posts that are accepted by the body and can fuse with living bone and tissue in a process called osseointegration.
To better serve patients in need of tooth replacement therapy, Drs. David and Jill Merrell provide complete dental implant placement and restoration treatment at our office. From strategic three-dimensional guided dental implant placement to crafting and affixing your custom-crafted prosthetic, our Weaverville dentists have the skill and experience to help you or your loved ones achieve full, functional, and beautiful smiles once more.
Utilizing Experience, Compassion, and Technology to Help Ensure Accurate Implant Placement
Our dentists initiate treatment by conducting a detailed yet gentle examination of your current dental and oral health state. Drs. David and Jill Merrell check for proper jawbone integrity and gum-tissue health allowing our team to determine you a viable candidate for dental implant placement.
With the use of our innovative, in-house dental implant technologies such as 3D x-rays and printing guides, we can better ensure accurate and successful dental implant placement as we combine these images to assist our dentists with every placement procedure. These artificial tooth roots are carefully placed in the jaw by their skilled hands.
Patients are given a few months to heal so the posts can properly fuse to the jaw, creating a strong and reliable foundation for your future personalized prosthetic.
