Why should I choose dental implants?
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that mimic the look, feel and function of your natural teeth. Implants can restore 99% of function, allowing you to eat anything you want while looking completely natural and beautiful. What’s more, we have a team of multi specialists who can perform extractions, place implants and mill custom restoration pieces in office.
What is the success rate
Dental implants placed by our experienced specialists have a 95% success rate. With proper care they can successfully last your lifetime.
How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient. During your consultation we will take into consideration the number of teeth that need to be replaced, how much bone is available or if we will need to perform a bone graft or sinus lift prior to surgery, any tooth extractions, and if any infection is present.
How many teeth can I replace?
Whether you have one missing tooth or an entire arch, we have dental implant solutions to accommodate you. For full-arch tooth loss we can place as little as two implants that support an entire denture or bridge, giving you a secure fit.
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
If you have one, many or a full arch of missing teeth you are likely a candidate for dental implants. You should be in good overall health and be free of any gum disease or infection. Our doctors have the knowledge and experience to treat those who do have any underlying conditions.
What if I don’t have enough bone to support implants?
Even if you have been told you don’t have enough bone to support dental implants, you may still be a candidate. Through bone grafting or sinus lift procedures we can rebuild bone in your jaw so you can get any number of implants placed.
Does implant surgery hurt?
This is a common misconception we often hear. Dental implant placement is generally not painful; it feels similar to having a tooth pulled. In fact, many of our patients say they hardly felt anything at all! Many of our doctors are certified to administer IV sedation if it’s needed.
What is the process for getting dental implants?
Using 3D technology, we first take detailed images of your mouth which tells us exactly where the nerves are located and where the best possible location to place your implant(s) is. With this information we then create a computer guide and use it during surgery to precisely place your implant(s) in the jaw bone for the best results. Our doctors can administer sedation medication if needed. Our team treats each implant case uniquely, guaranteeing your experience is customized and that you feel comfortable throughout.
Where will my implant surgery take place?
Our offices are designed to accommodate patients receiving dental implants. We are equipped to administer sedation in our office as well.
How long do dental implants last?
When placed by an experienced doctor and cared for properly, dental implants can last your lifetime. The crown or restoration piece may need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear, but the titanium implant post should last many years.
