Our doctor may recommend a dental implant if you have lost one or more permanent teeth. A dental implant is made up of a titanium implant post, which is surgically placed in the jawbone, a dental restoration, like a dental crown, and a dental abutment, which connects the post and the restoration. Before you choose a dental implant for your smile, you may wish to ask a few questions, like the ones below. We are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have to put your concerns at ease.

How long do dental implants last?
With proper care, implants can be a permanent solution. This is because the dental implant post is designed to fuse with the jawbone after it is placed.

Are dental implants comfortable?
Dental implants are designed to become a part of your smile, so they are very comfortable. They do not have to be removed and cleaned at night. They are cleaned right along with your natural teeth. In addition, you don’t need to worry about your implants sliding in your mouth.

How do I take care of dental implants?
Unlike some dental restorations, dental implants don’t need to be removed at night for cleaning. Simply brush and floss your implants along with your other teeth. In addition, make sure that you visit your regular dentist for your routine dental cleanings and exams.
