Dental Implant FAQ's

What is a dental implant?
- A dental implant is a permanent new root for a missing tooth. It is a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone. An abutment and crown is then placed on the implant to provide a new tooth that is permanent and looks just like a natural tooth. A surgical procedure is required to place the dental implant in a sterile and predictable manner.

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. They can often feel bulky and are 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 a permanent solution to a missing tooth problem. Missing spaces can cause problems for the other teeth in your mouth. This can include teeth moving into the space, over-eruption of the opposing tooth and bone loss. Dental implants hold this space in the mouth and the bone.

How much do implants cost?
- The price of your dental implants can depend on how many implants you are having placed, amount of insurance coverage, bone quality, and more. Schedule a consultation with us to determine a price for your implants and a financing plan if necessary.

Do dental implants hurt?
- No, they shouldn't.  Local anesthetic will be given before the procedure so that you do not feel any pain. Patients have expressed less discomfort with the placement of dental implants than with extractions.

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.

What are implants made of?

- We use the Adin Implant system in our office. These implants are made from titanium as it is a "bone-loving" material, this means that the bone treats the titanium as itself and grows into it, creating a bond and locking the implant in place.
