What are dental implants?

Dental implants are posts made of titanium which are implanted into the jaw bone. The bone grows around and integrates with the post, creating a replacement “root”. This provides a structure around which a restoration can be built to replace a single tooth, or to which a bridge or denture can be affixed to replace multiple teeth. Learn more.

 

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Almost anyone can be a candidate for dental implants; the main differences between patients have to do with how much preparatory work must be completed prior to implant placement. When a tooth is lost, underlying bone begins to dissolve, and sufficient bone is required to securely hold an implant in place. Learn more.

How much do dental implants cost?

The final cost of your implant will depend on a variety of factors, again, mostly having to do with the location of the desired implant, number of implants required, and any prep work needed to prepare the site for a successful dental implant. Overall, a dental implant is often the most cost effective tooth replacement option long term. Learn more.

Why choose dental implants?

Dental implants have a number of benefits not offered by other dental restorations. They often last the rest of the patient’s lifetime, and can help prevent further damage to the bone and tissue surrounding the implantation site. The high success rate of dental implants makes them the gold standard for tooth replacement. Learn more.

Which are better – implants or dentures?

Dental implants provide a permanent tooth replacement, and help preserve jawbone by stimulating it like a natural tooth root. In contrast, traditional dentures must be routinely altered due to changes in the mouth as unused jawbone dissolves. Dentures can be cost-effectively supported on four or six implants per arch.

What are Teeth-In-A-Day?

Teeth-In-A-Day allow patients who are having teeth extracted to have their implants placed the same day and restorations done immediately. This has multiple benefits: shortening treatment time, preventing bone loss around the extraction sockets, and eliminating time spent without teeth. Learn more.
