Dental Implant FAQs

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a permanent new root for a missing tooth. It is a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone. An abutment and crown are 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. Dental implants are permanent and allow you to eat the foods you want without any fear of embarrassment.

How much do implants cost?

The price of your dental implant will vary based on your current oral health, how many implants are needed, amount of insurance coverage, and more. Schedule a consultation with us to determine a price.

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 anxiety or fear you should discuss sedation options with your dentist.

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.
