What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the modern, conservative solution for the age-old problems of missing teeth and loose, unstable dentures.
Replacing missing teeth is very important for protecting the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw. If missing teeth are not replaced, it can cause surrounding teeth to drift out of place and deterioration of the underlying bone.
Unstable dentures are uncomfortable to wear and make it hard to eat or speak – sometimes resulting in embarrassing slippage. Dental implants are the perfect solution.

Have Questions About Dental Implants?
- Who is a good candidate for dental implants? Just about anyone who has missing teeth can use dental implants to restore their smile.
The requirements for a successful implant procedure include:
The patient has generally good health
There is no presence of periodontal disease
Sufficient healthy bone tissue exists to support an implant
Our dentists will perform a thorough exam and let you know if dental implants are the right option for you!
- Are dental implants safe? Yes, they are.
Dental implants are made of a biocompatible material that does not degrade, and dental crowns are not vulnerable to decay like natural teeth are.
Additionally, dental implants are the only restorative procedure that stimulates the growth of healthy bone tissue, protecting the health of your teeth and gums.
- Is the procedure painful? A numbing agent is used throughout your procedure to keep your treatment pain-free.
The procedure itself takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes, and we will monitor your comfort closely the whole time. Our patients report they experience very little post-surgical discomfort, which can usually be cared for with over-the-counter medication.
- Are dental implants expensive? As a dental treatment that completely replaces a missing tooth from root to crown and offers years of use, implants are very cost-effective!
We want you to get the best treatment possible and we will work with you to help you get it!
