Dental Implant FAQ
What are the options for replacing a missing tooth?
While we are in the tooth-saving business, when required though, teeth can be easily replaced. We can use non-removable implants, crowns, or fixed zirconium bridgework. We may also utilize bonded composite or zirconium esthetic bridgework. When necessary, we create removable full or partial bridges or a combination of these solutions to fill in gaps left by missing teeth. If necessary but not routinely we may employ removable complete or partial dentures.
Do replacement teeth last?
Replacement teeth aren’t susceptible to dental diseases such as decay, but gum health is an important factor in how long your replacement teeth may last. A daily routine and regular cleaning at the dentist will help keep your gums healthy and in return keep your replacement teeth lasting.
Are dental replacements removable like dentures or do they stay in your mouth?
Dental implants are fixed solidly in the bone and allow teeth to be replaced in a manner that is closest to natural teeth. They are not capable of being removed like dentures.
Will it hurt?
We offer many pain management options to make sure our patients are comfortable.
