Does dental insurance cover dental implants?
Dental insurance can cover the cost of dental implants. Some may cover the full amount or at least partial. During your consultation, we will review your dental insurance coverage and explain cost.
Are dental implants painful?
The procedure itself is not painful. A local anesthesia is used to keep the patient comfortable. Afterwards, you may feel mild discomfort but can use over-the-counter medication to alleviate pain.
How do I clean my teeth after the procedure?
Dental implants involve regular teeth cleaning, which makes them ideal for many patients. Normal teeth brushing and flossing is all that is required aside from regular dental visits.
Why should I consider teeth replacement?
Teeth replacement is important for your overall oral health. It helps preserve jawbone and remaining teeth. Missing teeth can cause serious issues like tooth decay and gum disease because the existing teeth are more exposed to bacteria. It also causes teeth to shift unnaturally. Dental implants may not be the best option for every patient. Those that cannot have the procedure should consider other teeth replacement options like dental bridges and dentures.
