FAQ’s about Dental Implants
Cosmetic dentistry, specifically dental implants, is one of the signature services offered at Arvada Dental Center because we believe that aesthetically completing your smile has countless mental, emotional, and physical health benefits. With that in mind, we design our cosmetic dentistry services around creating a positive change for your teeth, your smile, and most importantly, your life.
Below, our doctors have addressed some of the top questions we get from patients about dental implants. We hope you find these helpful and that they allow you to take the next steps to strengthening your smile.
Why should you consider dental implants?
If you are missing one or more teeth, the repercussions and consequences can go beyond impaired chewing and having a lackluster smile. The missing tooth or teeth may lead to infection, permanently alter the position of your other teeth due to a lack of support, or contribute to bone loss in your jaw. Not to mention, missing teeth can lead to diminished self-confidence.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
- They look and function just like healthy, natural teeth
- They provide a long-term solution to tooth loss
- They allow you to retain your natural face shape and smile
- They protect healthy jawbone
- They allow you to speak and chew just as you would with natural teeth
- They have highest success rate of all restoration methods
Are dental implants painful?
Just like any other medical procedure, some discomfort and soreness can be expected with the placement of dental implants. We routinely strive for minimally invasive treatment protocols, and ensure that the treatment we recommend is consistent with your long-term health and needs. We employ the use of state-of-the-art technology and quality materials to offer world-class dentistry services that are dependable and deliver long-lasting results.
Are dental implants expensive?
Our team will work with your individual needs and financial circumstances to ensure that you receive a smile you can afford. While dental implants are an investment, they are an investment in you, in your future, and in your overall health and happiness. You can’t put a price tag on that. It is also important to note that implants are less expensive than bridges in the long run, due to patients requiring multiple bridges throughout their lifetime. If you properly care for your implants and your overall oral health, your implants can last for many years. For more specific information, please contact our office today.
