We consider dental implants to be the gold standard in tooth replacement thanks to their permanent restoration of dental function, health, and aesthetics. It is common, however, for our Dental Care Solutions patients to express concerns or have questions about the process and the implants themselves. We are open in our communication about the pros and cons of dental implants and welcome your questions! Dental implants are a significant investment and we are here to help you make the most informed decision about your dental health. We invite you to read through our dental implants FAQ page and schedule your consultation with us to learn more.
Dental implants most closely mimic the function and beauty of natural teeth. A permanent option, dental implants can effectively restore any number of missing teeth and last decades. Most patients who get dental implants experience their benefits for a lifetime!
Dental implants have a clinical success rate of well over 95 percent. When properly cared for, a dental implant can potentially last the rest of a patient’s life.
Dental implant cost varies based on whether you need bone grafting or tooth extractions, how many teeth are missing and where, and the types of materials used. We personalize dental implant treatment to the unique needs of our patients, so each cost is different.
Dental implants can replace one, several, or all teeth. Specific protocols are in place for each scenario. Patients with any number of failing or missing teeth can restore their smiles with dental implants.
Most patients qualify for dental implants. If you have been told you cannot receive dental implants due to bone loss or other conditions, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our office. If we are unable to help you, we will refer you to an implant specialist who can.
Depending on your situation, you may need to have failing teeth extracted before an implant can be placed. Similarly, if you have lost teeth, you may need bone grafting to restore volume to your jaw ridge for proper support of dental implants.
With modern technology and minimally invasive techniques, dental implant placement is usually only a minor surgery. Often, patients feel comfortable with only local anesthesia administered at the treatment site. If you need additional sedation to feel relaxed and calm, we provide oral sedation and nitrous oxide.
The dental implants treatment process begins with a consultation with our implant dentist. We can help you determine the best treatment plan for your needs and goals, as well as provide a financial plan. Next, we remove teeth and provide bone grafts, if necessary. On your surgery day, we place your dental implant(s) using custom surgical guides. When the implants have healed, we restore your smile with a custom dental crown or bridge, denture, or full-arch prosthesis.
Dental implants are designed to last your lifetime, with a clinical success rate of over 95 percent. With proper at-home and professional care, your dental implants can last for many years.
Dental implants are cared for much like your natural teeth. Though they will not stain or decay, they can still be harmed if you do not brush and floss regularly. Maintaining bi-annual visits with our team can help ensure your dental implants remain strong and healthy long-term.
