Common Questions

Who is a candidate?                                                                                                                                       

Dental implants can be placed in most adults who have lost most or all of their teeth. But the only way to be sure is to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors.

Are Dental Implants painful?                                                                                                                   

Most dental implant patients experience minimal to no discomfort. The procedure is often completed using local anesthesia, while other patients prefer I.V. sedation to sleep through the process.

How soon may I return to work after treatment?                                                                 

You may return to work the next day unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. You may be prescribed medication to alleviate any minor discomfort you may have.

When will I receive my new teeth?                                  

Dental implants are designed as an immediate solution so that you walk out the same day with secure natural-looking teeth.

How do I care for my new teeth?                                                                                                     

Initially, you will only use a mediated mouth rinse prescribed by your doctor. Once your mouth is healed, you will use a water pick to clean around the implants and under the secured denture, and of course, you should continue to brush daily, especially at night. You should also schedule regular follow-up visits with your dentist for cleanings.

How long will dental implants last?                                                                                                    

Implants can last many years if cared for properly. Many dental implants have been in place for more than 40 years.

What is the success rate of dental implants?                                                                             

Dental implants have an average success rate that exceeds 99%.

How does the long-term value of Dental Implants compare to other 
treatment options?                                                                                                                                         

Dental implants are low maintenance and provide you with a stable, secure, and confident smile. Therefore, the long-term value of dental implants far exceeds conventional treatment options.

Are Dental Implants covered by insurance?                                                                               

Insurance policies vary, but some cover a portion of the restorative procedure. Financing options are often available with competitive interest rates, and payment plans can be tailored to your budget.
