What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a replacement tooth held to your gums by small anchors or screws made of titanium. Implants can also be used in conjunction with a dental bridge to replace multiple missing teeth.


Are Dental Implants painful?

A dental implant procedure is not as painful as it once was due to huge advancements in procedure techniques, technology, and medication. You should not feel much during the procedure due to the anesthetic other than pressure. Post procedure, over-the-counter pain medication is all that is needed for pain relief.

How long do Dental Implants last?

The quick answer is it depends. The implant itself can easily last a lifetime if properly cared for. This entails regularly brushing and flossing teeth as well as regular cleanings at the dentist ever 6 months. A dental crown is placed over the implant and this typically lasts 10 – 15 years.



Should I get teeth whitening kits from the store?2022-04-19T13:00:20-04:00
In-store whitening kits could help with light staining for a short period of time. Professional teeth whiteners are safe and much more effective in a brighter and longer lasting smile. Another advantage of professional teeth whitening is it is done under the supervision of a dental professional. In most cases, it is worth the extra cost for long-lasting and safe results. Teeth whitening is safe when done correctly.
