Contact us to book an appointment with our team

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the standard of care for tooth replacement. They are bonded with the bone to provide permanent support for crowns and dentures.
 

What will happen withough treatment?

Your jawbone begins to shrink from lack of stimulation. Losing your teeth will affect your smile and change the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged.
 

Who is a candidate?

Dental implants can be placed in most adults. Adolescents may be eligible once their face structure has matured. Please ask your dental implant specialist to explain the benefits and risks to see if dental implants are right for you.
 

Is implant placement painful?

No, dental implants are typically placed under local anesthesia. Most treatments can be completed in your clinician's office.

 

How soone may I return to work after treatment?

You may return to work the next day unless otherwise instructed by your clinician. You may be prescribed medication to alleviate any minor discomfort you may have.
 

How long does it take to place Dental Implants?

They may be placed in as little as 30 to 60 minutes depending on the location and the number of implants placed.
 

What if there is not enough bone or gum tissue for the Dental Implant?

A graft may be needed if your clinician determines there is not sufficient bone or gum tissue.
 

When will I receive my new teeth?

Treatment time varies by patient. Typically, you will have some type of temporary teeth until your implants bond to the bone. Your clinician can provide a time estimate based on your treatment needs.
 

How do I care for my implants?

Home care for your implants consists of brushing and flossing. Regular dental visits are required for long-term health and success.
 

How long can implants last?

Implants can last many years if cared for properly. Many implants have been in place for more than 40 years.
 

How does the long-term value of implants compare to other treatment options?

Dental implants are low maintenance and provide stability and confidence in your smile. Therefore, the long-term value of dental implants far exceeds conventional treatment options.
