Dental Implants

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants last for a long time — decades, or even for a lifetime with proper care. They’re made from high-quality, durable materials that integrate naturally with your jawbone. Implants are sturdy and won’t come out.

To ensure your implants last as long as possible, a good oral hygiene routine is essential. Dental implants don’t require any special care beyond daily toothbrushing and flossing, so they’re easy to keep up with. 

Visiting our Parkside dentists for regular cleanings and checkups is also recommended. We can clean off your teeth and implants to keep them sparkling and safe.

The cost of dental implants varies depending on your unique situation. Some of the main factors that influence your cost of treatment include the type of implants you need, how many you need, and your insurance coverage.

Less expensive implant procedures may be tempting, but they often exclude important parts of the procedure that can endanger your health as well as the success of your implant. Our implant dentists are all highly experienced and care about your safety.

Dental implants are easy to take care of. They only require the same amount of hygiene as a natural tooth — just brush and floss them every day. Make sure to use a non-abrasive toothpaste and gentle floss so you don’t scratch your implant.

While everyday hygiene is simple, it’s essential that you be careful while you heal from your surgery. Avoid using a straw, be gentle when spitting, and eat soft foods until you’ve healed. After your surgery, your dentist will give you detailed care instructions.

Implants are made from biocompatible materials that integrate naturally into your jawbone. They promote your natural health by keeping your jawbone strong and healthy. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that prevents jawbone deterioration. 

They also protect vulnerable areas of your mouth from harmful bacteria, protecting the natural teeth you have. You’re less likely to lose more teeth if you have a dental implant.

Most dental insurances cover at least part of the cost of dental implants. If you’d like to find out the details of your dental insurance coverage, we recommend contacting your provider. They can help you find out how much coverage you qualify for.
