Dental Implant FAQs

Why should I choose an implant rather than a bridge?

With dental implants, there is no need to destroy your remaining healthy tooth structure, which makes it an ideal solution for most patients seeking an improved cosmetic dental appearance.  The longevity of dental implants is much longer than the life span of a bridge.

Can I Get New Teeth in Just One Day?

Early dental implant treatment protocols were based on the concept that an implant had to be integrated in bone prior to loading. However, an increasing number of publications and reports illustrate that one-stage surgery and immediate dental implants can be successfully used in many situations.

For many of our patients we can complete their implants in just one day, so they can avoid multiple office visits and walk out of our office with new teeth.

What if I already have Dentures?

If you’ve been living with full dentures for some time, we don’t need to advise you about all of their everyday limitations.

The good news? Our Oral Surgeons are specialists, who can replace your full jaw with dental implants and by working with your dentist, adhere a fixed bridge, to give you a permanent, stable and highly aesthetic solution. This eliminates the need for dentures and provides you with a long-term solution for your missing teeth.

Dental implants, fused to the jawbone, keep the bone healthy and your teeth securely in place. Once implants have been placed in your jaw, they can be restored with fixed bridgework or over-dentures. A fixed bridge is permanently secured to the dental implants, while removable over-dentures are held in place by a bar and clip, or by one of many other attachments currently available.
