Following the guidance of the state department of health, we have resumed all dental care services at select practices. If you missed an appointment or were unable to make one due to coronavirus restrictions, please contact us to schedule as soon as possible to avoid cavities, infections or other potential complications. Your health and safety are our main priority.
Dental implants are the permanent solution for missing teeth. Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants are a comfortable, long-term replacement that you can brush and floss just as you would natural teeth. If you are missing one or more of your teeth, dental implants can help you eat, speak and smile confidently again.
Dental implants can help patients of all ages who have lost teeth due to injury, illness or gum disease. Our dental implant experts can talk with you about your dental history and help you find an affordable way to smile again!
Dental implants are metal posts, usually made from titanium, that are surgically placed into your jawbone beneath your gums. On top of each post, your dentist places an abutment which connects the implant to the replacement tooth. Replacement teeth, or crowns, are custom-made to match the color and appearance of your natural teeth.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
If you are missing one or more teeth due to injury, illness or gum disease – you can probably benefit from dental implants! During your visit, your dentist will want to learn more about your dental history, overall health and how you're currently feeling. But most patients, regardless of age, will benefit greatly from dental implants.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants can last a lifetime. And patients with dental implants report a higher quality of life – including more comfort while eating and greater confidence when they smile! Dental implants feel natural in your mouth and can be brushed and flossed just like your other teeth.
How much do dental implants cost?
In general, the cost of replacing a single tooth with a dental implant is similar to replacing it with a fixed bridge. Your treatment may qualify for insurance coverage depending on your plan.
