Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Implants can be used in conjunction with a crown to replace a single tooth, and are particularly effective at providing a permanent and sturdy replacement for highly visible and utilized front teeth. Implants can be used with a bridge or dentures to replace whole sections or entire arches of teeth. Dental implants offer increased security and strength compared to removable devices, will not slip out of place during your daily activities, and will appear as though they are natural teeth growing out of your gums and jaw.
Are there any drawbacks to dental implants?
Dental implants have a higher initial cost than most other solutions for missing teeth. They are also more durable, so this is a trade-off that patients must consider when weighing their options. In addition, dental implants can only be used when a patient’s bone and gums are healthy enough to accommodate a surgical rod. When a tooth is lost due to bone loss, implants might not be a viable option. If you have a missing tooth, we will help you determine the best course of action for your particular circumstances.
