Dental Implant FAQs

Curious about Dental Implants?

If you have missing, failing, or broken teeth, dental implants might be a good choice for restorative dental work. If you feel embarrassed about your smile, dental implants will help you smile with confidence again.


Q: What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that act as replacements for the roots of missing teeth. Titanium has biocompatible properties, so dental implants fuse with the surrounding bone to become solid anchors for replacement teeth, bridges, and dentures.

Q: Are dental implants painful?

After the procedure, you may experience some tenderness along the gum line. This is minimal, especially when compared to bone loss, gum receding, and decay, which c

an all be caused by missing teeth.

Q: How can I afford dental implants?

We understand that not every dental plan covers cosmetic and restorative dental treatments. Ask us about our flexible financing options. We offer in-house payment plans that can help you get the treatment you need. We also have a free dental implant consultation to help you get started.


Q: I already have dentures. Why would I need implants?

Sometimes dentures feel uncomfortable, or slip and rub your gums. This rubbing can eventually lead to bone loss, especially with patients who suffer from weak bone strength. If you’re unhappy with your dentures, consider dental implants as an option for a happier smile.

Q: How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last 20 years!
