Dental Implant FAQ's

What are dental implants?
Simply stated, dental implants are titanium cylinders that are permanently placed in the jaw bone. The implants provide the support for the replaced teeth. They are permanent and very successful.

Why should you consider?
Implants are affordable and permanent unlike dentures.  When you consider the ease and affordability of implants, there is no reason to live with missing teeth or loose dentures.

What are the benefits?
Dental implants offer the next best option to your teeth. They look and feel like your natural teeth. They improve the appearance of your mouth and smile. With dental implants, you are not restricted to eating certain foods. Dental implants also reduce the bone atrophy and shrinkage that is common with lost teeth.

Who will place a dental implant in my mouth?
Our periodontist is qualified to place dental implants.  In addition, a restorative dentist completes the crowns once the implants are complete.
