Hear What Our Patients Are Saying About Their Dental Implant Experience

Dental Implants are the preferred permanent and durable solution for replacing missing or deteriorating teeth

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed securely into the jawbone. Because they look and function like real teeth, you’ll have the confidence to chew, speak, and smile as you’ve always wanted. Plus, when properly cared for, they can last a lifetime!

Frequently Asked Questions

At Southshore Dental we give our patients several options for sedation to keep the procedure pain-free and anxiety-free. We will perform the procedure with the latest techniques in a sterile environment. Most of our patients are amazed by how little discomfort they experience after the procedure.

With proper care, cleanings and check-ups, your new dental implants could last a lifetime. Traditional solutions, such as dentures only last a few years.

Before the crown can be secured, the implant must first properly be fused into the jawbone. It can take up to several months for the implant to fully heal.

Dental implant surgery is one of the safest procedures in dentistry and it is the only restoration method that stimulates natural bone beneath the missing tooth. Dental implants have been around for over 40 years and are extremely effective.

Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to dental diseases such as decay. However, the health of the gums is vital to maintaining lasting implant success. After the procedure, it is important to see your dentist every three months so your implants can be closely monitored.

Dental implants have a high success rate of 95-98%. However, there are risks to consider, such as nerve damage, implant movement, and infection. To reduce your risks, be sure to properly clean and attend checkup visits with your dentist and find an experienced dentist that has the best technology to be successful, such as a 3D Cone Beam Technology for a high-tech guided surgery.

Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing, along with dental checkups every three months and professional cleanings. For the first couple of weeks after the procedure, only chew soft foods, to prevent breakage.

Dental implants typically cost more as an upfront investment when compared to dentures or bridges. However, in the long-run, dental implants are less expensive because they last a lifetime, while other solutions must be replaced every few years.

Options for Treating Missing or Decayed Teeth

During an initial consultation, our dentist will listen to your concerns and smile goals, provide a comprehensive exam, develop and present a recommended action plan, go over financing options, and answer your questions. Here are a few of the options we may recommend for you.

Implant Supported Fixed Bridge

A fixed implant-supported bridge is a more cost-effective solution than individually replacing each missing tooth with its own implant and crown.

Fixed Hybrid Implants

The fixed hybrid implant treatment gives you a stable, long-lasting, and natural-looking final result for your smile. It’s secured using dental implants and cannot be removed without the assistance of a dentist.

Removable Implant Denture

When all teeth need to be replaced, one of the options with the best return on investment is the removable implant denture. This “Snap Assembly” provides stability and retention.
