What Are The Advantages of Dental Implants?

Rediscover the Joy of Eating with Dental Implants

A missing tooth can be more than just a cosmetic issue; it impacts your overall quality of life. One of these is the joy and freedom of eating. Dr. Eric Benefield of Grand Dental in Grand Junction, CO, shares some enlightening perspectives on dental implants as the ultimate solution for filling a gap in your smile and reclaiming your life’s little pleasures.

Why Dental Implants Are the Unbeatable Option

Dental implants stand head and shoulders above other alternatives when it comes to tooth replacement. The reason is simple: no other method replicates a natural tooth as effectively as a dental implant. These provide the functional efficiency you expect from a natural tooth, that is as strong, reliable, and visually pleasing as your original one.

While various options are available for tooth replacement, none offer the natural feeling that dental implants provide. Once a dental implant is set and healed, it’s easy to forget you ever had a missing tooth. The implant feels like a part of you, allowing you to laugh, talk, and eat without giving it a second thought. Dental implants are the way to go if you’re seeking a solution that “belongs” in your mouth.

Because Corn Is Sweeter on the Cob

One of the less discussed downsides of missing a tooth is how it narrows your food choices. Anyone who’s had to sift through a restaurant menu, avoiding foods they’d love to eat for fear of embarrassment, knows what we’re talking about. Dental implants restore your freedom to eat whatever you feel like eating.

Living in Grand Junction, CO, gives you easy access to the renowned sweet corn from nearby Olathe. So why miss out on this local specialty because of a missing tooth or two? Grand Dental’s motto is as sweet as Olathe corn: “Corn tastes better on the cob.” Dental implants can bring back the pleasure of enjoying local specialties, making the experience even more memorable.

Your dental care is more than just maintaining a set of teeth; it’s about enhancing your overall quality of life. Dr. Eric Benefield and the team at Grand Dental are committed to offering dental solutions tailored to meet your unique needs and lifestyle.

If the idea of dental implants sounds like the missing piece in your life, don’t wait any longer. Take the first step toward a more fulfilling life filled with the foods you love and the smiles you wish to share. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Eric Benefield at Grand Dental today, and get ready to bite into life again—perhaps starting with a fresh ear of Olathe’s special sweet corn!

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
