Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that mimic the look, feel and function of your natural teeth. Implants can restore 99% of function, allowing you to eat anything you want while looking completely natural and beautiful.

Dental implants placed by our experienced team have a 95% success rate. With proper care they can successfully last your lifetime.

The cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient. During your consultation we will take into consideration the number of teeth that need to be replaced, how much bone is available or if we will need to perform a bone graft or sinus lift prior to surgery, any tooth extractions, and if any infection is present.

Whether you have one missing tooth or an entire arch, we have dental implant solutions to accommodate you. For full arch tooth loss we can place as few as two implants that support an entire denture or bridge, giving you a secure fit or even perform the Teeth Tomorrow® procedure and give you a full set of permanent teeth in as few as two days.

Our doctors have over 70 years of combined experience, and have placed thousands of dental implants in patients with a variety of needs and conditions.

If you have one, many or even a full arch of missing teeth, or are needing to lose one or more teeth, you might be a candidate for Dental Implants. Our team of experienced doctors will do a thorough exam and will be able to let you know if you’re a candidate.

Even if you have been told you don’t have enough bone to support dental implants, you may still be a candidate. Through bone grafting or sinus lift procedures we can rebuild bone in your jaw so you can get any number of implants placed.

Using advanced technology, we first take detailed images of your mouth which tells us exactly where the nerves are located and where the best possible location to place your implant(s) is. With this information we then create a computer guide and use it during surgery to precisely place your implant(s) in the jaw bone for the best results. We offer sedation medication if needed for your implant surgery. Our team treats each implant case uniquely, guaranteeing your experience is customized and that you feel comfortable throughout.

In most cases we can remove a tooth, or multiple teeth, and place an implant the same day. This can even be performed for those seeking full arch tooth replacement. With Teeth Tomorrow, we are able to extract teeth and place implants in one day and give you a fixed bridge the very next day.

Your dental implant surgery will take place in our state-of-the-art office. We have recently built a unique surgical suite that is dedicated to advanced procedures such as dental implants and is equipped to offer sedation services as well.

When placed by an experienced doctor and cared for properly, dental implants can last you a lifetime. The crown, or restoration piece, may need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear, but the titanium screw should last many years.

Your dental implants can be cleaned like your normal teeth. We recommend brushing twice a day and flossing daily, and maintaining regular cleanings and checkups.
