What is an implant?

An implant has two parts: a biocompatible metal root and a custom-made tooth which is attached to it. Underlying bone is prepared to accept the root which integrates your jawbone.

How do I know if implants are for me?

A consultation with an dentist who is experienced in implant placement is the first step to finding out if implants are right for you.  Implants are so versatile that they can replace one or more teeth, support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removablepartial denture, or provide support to make a complete denture more secure and comfortable.

Will my implants look natural?

Completely natural. You can eat, speak, and socialize with ease.

Are implants safe?

Definitely. Implants have been used for about 35 years, and patients can expect a 98% success rate.

Do implants require special after-care?

No. They require the same home care and regular dental visits as natural teeth.

Are age and health important factors?

Age is not a factor. Most people in good overall and oral health are excellent candidates.

How long will implants last?

Implants are designed to be permanent, and more than 90% last for twenty years or more.
