Why Dental Implants Are A Game-Changer: Dr. Eric Benefield Explains

When you’re on the cusp of making an important health decision, firsthand experiences and expert advice can be invaluable.
In this blog post, we’ll walk you through what Dr. Eric Benefield of Grand Dental in Grand Junction, CO has to say about the transformative power of dental implants.

A Common Reflection: “I Should Have Done This Years Ago”
From the countless discussions Dr. Benefield has had with his patients, one sentiment stands out: patients often wish they’d opted for dental implants sooner. The reasons they waited vary – from apprehensions about the cost to simply not knowing the immense benefits. However, the retrospective view is consistent: Dental implants are worth every penny, the effort, and the time. Dr. Benefield has a dental implant himself, and he knows from his own personal experience that the end result was well-worth it:

“It was worth the effort. It was worth the cost. This is awesome because I can eat, I can smile without being embarrassed. I can live my life without pain, without infections.” – Dr. Eric Benefield

Addressing the Root Problem
If you’re contemplating whether to get dental implants, start by identifying the core issue you want to solve. Dental implants can be the answer to various dental problems:

  • Constant Pain: Dental pain can be excruciating and debilitating. Removing problematic teeth and replacing them with implants can free you from round-the-clock pain management.
  • Dining Comfortably: If you’re missing out on the joy of biting into a crispy apple or relishing the local Olathe sweet corn right off the cob, dental implants can be your passport back to culinary bliss. Oh, and don’t get us started on the juicy steaks!
  • Reclaiming Confidence: No more hiding your smile or feeling self-conscious. Dental implants can rejuvenate your confidence, allowing you to beam your smile without a second thought.

Restoring the Natural Feel
Often dubbed a ‘mini miracle’ by Dr. Benefield, dental implants are about more than just aesthetics. They recreate the foundation for a set of teeth that not only looks ravishing but also functions flawlessly.
“To me, dental implants are like a little miracle. They bring you back what you couldn’t have before… They bring you back to being able to just live life and not worry about your teeth.”

Dr. Benefield’s Personal Experience
Beyond his professional expertise, Dr. Benefield shares a personal connection with dental implants. Having an implant himself, he can vouch for its natural feel and functionality. It stands independently like any other tooth, offering both aesthetic appeal and the genuine pleasure of natural bite and function.

“In my mouth, in my patient’s mouths, I wouldn’t consider any other tooth replacement than a dental implant.” – Dr. Eric Benefield

Making the choice to get dental implants can be life-changing. It’s about reinstating not just your oral health, but also confidence, quality of life, and the simple joys like enjoying a meal without hesitation.

Featured Testimonials


“I chose Dr. Benefield after researching dentists in Grand Junction following a move from Arizona. I needed extensive work, including implants and a bridge. We discussed the cost and the time frame (about a year). After an exam, he quoted me a price for the total package. I could not have made a better choice. The whole staff are super careful about the pandemic, as well as very caring and professional. Dr. Benefield, (known in the office as ‘Dr Eric’), has worked diligently with me for the past 8 months and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He obviously enjoys what he does and makes every effort to make it as painless as possible.” ~ Jean
