Dental Implant FAQs

dental implant facts

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a permanent new root for a missing tooth, made of a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone. An abutment and crown are then placed on the implant to imitate a new tooth, which is permanent and which looks just like a natural tooth.

How are dental implants different than dentures?
Dentures are a removable and can be both a full or partial set of teeth that need to be cared for in a special manner. They can often feel bulky and are more 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 fairly inexpensive.

Who can place a dental implant?
Your dentist may be able to perform implants in their own office based on their training. If not, they will recommend you to an implantologist, cosmetic dentist, or another specialist that can perform the procedure.

How much do implants cost?
The price of your dental implants will vary based on the level of experience that your doctor possesses, how many implants you are having placed, the amount of coverage your insurance provider offers, and many other varying factors. Schedule a consultation with us to determine a price for your implants as well as a financing plan, if necessary.

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.
