FAQs

What is implant dentistry?

Implant dentistry is a wonder of current dentistry. A tooth implant is a small titanium rod the implant dentist places into your gums. This metal rod fuses with your jawbone. This healing takes between 3-6 months. Once the tooth implant is healed, the implant dentist places a custom made dental crown–basically giving you a “new” tooth root and tooth!

Does a tooth implant look natural?

Implant dentistry has fine tuned its procedures so highly, a teeth implant is usually undetectable by anyone! The implant dentist will make sure the dental crown on top of the tooth implant is customized to be the right size, shape and color so it will match your other teeth. With a teeth implant, smile, laugh and don’t worry about your cousin who is camera happy! Have your photo taken with confidence.

Will the implant dentistry procedure be very painful?

We are careful to make sure you feel as little discomfort as possible. Of course we use all the up-to-date best practices that are part of the tooth implant procedure. But we also offer dental sedation to help you feel more comfortable. Dental anxiety can actually cause you more pain because you are tense. With IV sedation, oral conscious sedation or laughing gas, you may feel far more relaxed and may find that the implant dentistry procedure coupled with the dental sedation is really not painful at all.

Will I have to see more than one dentist to get the implant dentistry procedure?
