Dental Implant FAQ's
 

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a replacement root for a missing tooth. A dental implant is a titanium fixture that is placed into the jaw bone. An abutment and crown is then placed on 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 partial set of teeth that need to be removed and cared for in a special manner. 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 the procedure is very successful and relatively inexpensive.

Who can place a dental implant?
Dental implants are placed by general dentists and various dental specialists.  We can help to explain the placement of your dental implant and help you to determine the best treatment plan for your ideal results.

Do dental implants hurt?
No. A local anesthetic will be given before the procedure so that you do not feel any discomfort. If you have anxiety or fear you should discuss sedation options with us. Most cases can accomplished under general anesthetic in an out-patient oral surgery setting.

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.
