If you’ve been thinking about dental implants, you probably have a few questions. Some of the most frequently asked questions and answers are listed below:

Why are dental implants a better choice than bridges, partials, or dentures?

Dental implants are better than other tooth replacement options for many reasons. Unlike partials or dentures, dental implants are completely stable because they are firmly embedded in bone, eliminating the need for ever taking them out. They are also a much more conservative option than bridges because only the dental implant area needs to be prepared, whereas bridges require crowns to be placed on the adjacent teeth so as to hold the bridge in place.

Are dental implants often successful?

Yes, in fact, dental implants are the most successful surgical implant available today—in fact, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, they have a success rate of over 95 percent! This is largely because, they are made of titanium, a biocompatible material that your body won’t reject.

What is the procedure for dental implants?

The dental implant screw is placed in your jaw during a simple in-office procedure. Over time, your supporting bone fuses completing your new tooth!
