Will My Restorations Look and Feel Real?
We use high-quality materials to ensure that our patients are provided with discreet dental solutions. You can replace your teeth with natural-looking restorations for a smile with full function and aesthetics.
Is the Procedure Painful?
We are proud to offer anesthesia and sedation, as well as digitally guided implant placement in our office to create a more comfortable experience and help successfully manage dental implant pain. Our doctors can safely administer nitrous oxide, IV, or oral conscious sedation during your procedure. We can combine sedation with a local anesthetic for optimal comfort.
How Long Will the Process Take?
For traditional dental implants, there are typically two separate appointments required. From the implant procedure to the placement of your custom restoration, patients can expect treatment to range from three to six months. After the implant posts are fully integrated with the jaw bone you will receive your finalized crown, denture, or bridge. We also offer All-on-4® for which a temporary implant-supported restoration can be provided on the same day.
Can You Restore Implants Placed by Another Dentist?
Yes, our dentists are able to restore dental implants placed by other doctors.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
The cost of your treatment can vary significantly depending on the type of dental implants you receive, type of restoration, and other treatment factors. The pricing for single tooth replacement begins at $5,850.
Our doctors perform all preparatory and dental implant placement procedures our practice.
Will the Procedure be Covered by Insurance?
Dental implants are not always covered by insurance, however, we accept financing through CareCredit® and LendingClub®. We use an external service to help our patients maximize their insurance coverage for these procedures.
