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. 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. You do not need to worry about taking them in and out because they are permanent. You can eat the foods you want without any fear of your teeth being affected.
Who can place a dental implant?
Your dentist may be able to perform implants in their own office. If not, they will recommend you to an implantologist, cosmetic dentist, or another specialist that is qualified to perform the procedure.
How much do implants cost?
The price of your dental implants will vary based on the level of training of your doctor, how many implants you are having placed, the amount of insurance coverage, and more. Schedule a consultation with us to determine an estimate for your implants as well as a financing plan.
Do dental implants hurt?
A local anesthetic will be given before the procedure so that you do not feel any pain. If you have anxiety or fear, you will want to 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.
