All About Dental Implants

If you have missing teeth, you may find it difficult to be confident and happy with your smile. Since bacteria can easily infect the spaces between teeth, it can be bad for your overall health as well. Dental implants are the best way to remedy problems caused by missing teeth and to get you smiling again.

What Are Dental Implants?

Our dental implants are made with a base and connector made of strong titanium that attaches securely to the replacement crown. This ceramic crown will look and feel just like a natural tooth, perfect for those who do not feel comfortable with noticeable metal crowns.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

This procedure helps your mouth in many ways:

  • It makes your speech clearer. Missing teeth cause you to experience speech impediments, such as lisping.
  • It gives your mouth a better appearance. Dental implants are designed to fuse directly with your bone and look just like permanent teeth. Having a smile full of teeth will do wonders for your self-esteem!
  • It improves the function of your teeth. It can be hard to eat certain foods with missing teeth. Dental implants function just as well as normal teeth, so you never have to worry about missing out on your favorite treats!
  • It improves your oral hygiene. Dental implants provide easier access between teeth, meaning they won't be as hard to clean.
  • It's proven to last. Studies show that dental implants have a success rate of up to 95%.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

To receive dental implants, it's important to have:

  • Good overall health
  • Healthy gums
  • A strong jawbone

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Many dental insurance companies will not cover dental implants since they are considered cosmetic. The average cost of a single implant is around $3,000-$4,500. Our office staff can discuss payment and financing options available that may be available to you.

How Long Does Healing Take?

The healing process depends on the extent of the procedure and the state of your oral health beforehand, but you can expect an average of 2-6 months.
