Dental Implant FAQ's
 

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a permanent new root that is inserted to replace a missing tooth. It is a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone. An abutment and crown are put on top of the implant to provide a new tooth that is permanent and looks just like a natural tooth.

How are dental implants different than dentures?
Dentures are a removable set of teeth or a partial set of teeth that need to be removed to be maintained. They can often feel bulky and are difficult to get used to. Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth that can be cared for just like natural teeth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants look and feel just like real teeth, they are permanent, you can eat the foods you want without any fear of embarrassment, and they procedure is very successful and fairly inexpensive.

Who can place a dental implant?
We've been performing dental implants in our office since 1992. Requiring specialized training, some practices will refer you to an outside implantologist, cosmetic dentist, or another specialist, but rest assured you're in good hands with us.

How much do implants cost?
The price of your dental implants will vary based on how many implants you need, the amount of insurance coverage you have, and other factors. Schedule a consultation to determine a price for your implants and a financing plan if necessary.

Do dental implants hurt?
No. A local anesthetic will be given before the procedure so that you do not feel any pain. If you have any anxiety or fear, we can discuss sedation options with you.

How long do implants last?
When cared for properly, implants should last a lifetime. Proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits are essential to the success of your implant.
