Enjoy a Complete and Natural Looking Smile with Dental Implants
Our Dental Implant Treatments
An implant consultation is a meeting between you and your dentist to discuss whether dental implants are the right option for you. During the consultation, your dentist will evaluate your oral health and discuss your detailed treatment plan, including the benefits, procedure, risks, recovery and cost of dental implants.
Implant-supported dentures are overdentures supported by implants surgically placed in the jawbone. This provides greater stability and helps prevent the denture from slipping or moving in the mouth.
A single implant is a dental implant meant to replace one missing tooth. It is strong and durable and a popular option for replacing missing teeth because they look and feel like natural teeth.
Multiple implants are a type of dental implant that replaces more than one missing tooth. In most cases, each implant will support a single crown, but in some cases, multiple implants may be used to support a bridge or even a denture.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Implants
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. However, not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. To be a good candidate for dental implants, you must have healthy gums and sufficient bone density to support the implant. If you have periodontal disease, you must undergo treatment before placing an implant. Additionally, smokers are typically not good candidates for dental implants due to the increased risk of implant failure. You must also maintain good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
If you are considering dental implants, we recommend you schedule a consultation with our office. During the consultation, your dentist will take X-rays and thoroughly examine your mouth to determine if implants are right for you.
Dental implants are quickly becoming the treatment of choice to replace missing teeth. And it’s no wonder why – they offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options.
- Looks and feels like natural teeth:
With dental implants, you can smile and speak confidently without worrying about your teeth slipping or moving around in your mouth and knowing that your implants will blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth.
- Restores your appearance and chewing function:
This is important not only for one’s self-confidence but also for maintaining a healthy diet.
- Prevents bone loss and facial sagging:
When you lose teeth, the bone in your jaw begins to shrink, causing your face to collapse and making you look older. Dental implants prevent this by keeping the bone intact and healthy. In addition, they also help to support the cheeks and lips.
- Long-term solution:
Dental implants can last a long time with proper care, making them a wise investment in your oral health.
Although dental implants are generally considered a safe and effective tooth replacement option, some potential risks and complications can occur.
Infection can occur at the implant site or in the surrounding tissue. It can cause pain, swelling, and redness, and it may delay healing.
- Damage to surrounding structures.
Dental implants can cause damage to surrounding teeth and jaw bone. If the damage is minor, it can be resolved with treatment. However, in rare cases, it may require the removal of the implant.
- Nerve damage.
There is a small risk of nerve damage during implant placement. This may lead to numbness or tingling in the lips, chin, or gums.
- Sinus perforation.
This occurs when the implant penetrates the sinus cavity. This complication is rare and can usually be resolved with surgery.
Many people are concerned about the cost of dental implants. While the initial investment may be higher than other options, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. In contrast, dentures and bridges must be replaced every five to seven years. Over time, the cost of dental implants becomes more comparable to other options.
Additionally, dental insurance or health funds often covers a portion of the cost of dental implants. For these reasons, dental implants are an excellent long-term investment for your smile.
