All of the Answers to All-Important Questions about Tooth Implants

Do you have questions about dental implants? Get the answers you need to see if the treatment suits your smile.

What are dental implants?  

They are tiny titanium posts, which are embedded into the jawbone to support a crown, bridge, or denture. Once these tooth implants bond to the bone, a connector called an abutment is attached to the implant to hold an artificial tooth or teeth.

Do teeth implants last a long time?  

Dental implants can last for many years because they are not at risk for dental diseases like tooth decay. But they must receive proper oral home care, along with regular professional check-ups and cleanings, to stay strong and stable.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

If you’re missing a single tooth, many teeth, or even all of your teeth, then you are probably eligible to get implants.

What is an All-on-4®?  

This is a special trademarked treatment in which all of the missing teeth in a jaw are replaced with just four implants. Implant dentists often use it when patients have serious bone loss in the back of the mouth.

Do I need dental implants if I have full dentures or partial dentures?

Implants are often used to secure and support both full and partial dentures, regardless of whether the denture is fixed or removable.

Are dental implants taken out like regular dentures?  

No, implants are surgically connected to the jawbone in order to connect artificial teeth with the same look and comfort as natural teeth.

Can I get affordable dental implants, and are they covered by insurance plans?

Generally, the cost of replacing a single tooth with a dental implant is comparable to the price of using a regular fixed bridge. If cost is a concern, some implant dentists accept insurance and many offer financing options to make affordable dental implants a reality.

What is the success rate of tooth implants?    

According to implant dentists, patients with good oral hygiene habits and healthy teeth have up to a 95 percent success rate.
