Dental Implant FAQ's

AGD Member
 

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 by a local Oral Surgeon. 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.

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 permanent, you can eat the foods you want without any fear of embarrassment, and the procedure is very successful and fairly inexpensive.

Who can place a dental implant?
Your dentist will recommend a specialist to place the implant in their office. 

How much do implants cost?
The price of your dental implants will vary based how many implants you are having placed, amount of insurance coverage, and more. Schedule a consultation with our local Oral Surgeon to determine the fee for your implant placement and a consult with us for the fee of the restorations and a financing plan if necessary.

Do dental implants hurt?
No. A local anesthetic will be given before the procedure so that you do not feel any pain. If you have anxiety or fear you should discuss sedation options with your surgeon.

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.
