Confidence & Comfort
Dental implants can help you look, eat, and feel better. Over a million have been successfully placed in North America. That’s a lot of smiles! If you’ve been considering implants, here are a few commonly asked questions.
What is an implant?
An implant has two parts: a biocompatible metal root and a custom-made tooth which is attached to it. Underlying bone is prepared to accept the root which becomes part of your jawbone.
How do I know if implants are for me?
Implants are so versatile that they can replace one or more teeth, support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture, or provide support to make a complete denture more secure and comfortable.
Will my implants look natural?
Completely natural. You can eat, speak, and socialize with ease.
Are implants safe?
Definitely. Implants have been used for 50+ years and patients can expect an extremely high success rate.
Do implants require special after-care?
No. They require the same home care and regular dental visits as natural teeth.
Are age and health important factors?
Age is not a factor. Most people in good overall and oral health are excellent candidates.
How long will an implant last?
Implants are designed to be permanent and more than 90% last for twenty years or more.
