Dental Implant FAQs

 
Why do people get dental implants?
- If a patient is missing one or several teeth, they may have difficulty eating, chewing, and talking on a daily basis. They can also feel uncomfortable smiling and laughing around friends and family and would rather hide their teeth. When there are gaps between teeth, the rest of your teeth will start to naturally shift together to fill in the empty space, which can cause a number of dental difficulties in the future.
 
How long will dental implants last?
- If taken care of properly, dental implants can last beyond 15 years. Implants must be taken care of just like your natural teeth--by brushing and flossing. Make sure to discuss your particular dental treatment and history in order to ensure your implants last as long as possible. If you follow the guidelines, your implants may even last a lifetime!
 
Are dental implants safe?
- This treatment is the best option to restore your smile back to its natural ways. While there are other options to restore our teeth, dental implants have the ability to make your smile look and feel like it used to be.
