Everything You Need to Know and More!

Dental implants are considered by dental professionals everywhere to be the best option to replace your missing or failing teeth. But many patients want to understand why this is and what dental implants will mean to them over the course of their lifetime. If you are looking for more of an overall understanding of the dental implant process, we recommend you take a look at our About Dental Implants Page for a more thorough explanation. For those who want answers to common questions patients have, our team has created a dental implant FAQ to better help you understand.

Common Dental Implant Questions

Implants look, feel and function just like real teeth. They restore almost 100 percent biting and chewing function, so you’re able to enjoy your favorite foods again and look just like natural teeth when you smile. And with proper care, you can expect them to last you a lifetime.

When you have your implants placed by our experienced oral surgeons, you will benefit from an over 95 percent success rate. Thanks to our years of additional medical and dental training, plus advanced technology, we are the areas leaders in implant placement.

The cost of dental implants is unique to each person and their specific needs. We recommend coming in for a consultation or submitting a virtual consultation to get an estimate on your overall cost.

Dental implants are such a versatile solution that they are able to replace anywhere from one tooth to an entire mouth of teeth.

Our team specializes in providing you advanced, safe and precise implant placement. Your general dentist or a partnering prosthodontist will restore your dental implants, but the crown will be included in your treatment plan, so you can expect it to be of high-quality zirconia material.

Care for dental implants is easy—just treat them like natural teeth. Brush and floss twice a day and get routine hygiene cleanings twice a year from your dentist. An added benefit, your dental implants are resistant to staining and cannot get a cavity!
