Dental FAQs

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a small post, usually made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the root of the tooth. A connector, known as an abutment, is placed on, or built into, the top of the dental implant, which connects it to the replacement tooth. Finally, a crown, a replacement tooth, is custom fabricated to match your natural teeth, completing the dental implant.

Can any dentist provide my dental implant?

Dental implants are sophisticated dental devices that must be placed carefully to minimize complications or implant failure. For the best results, it is important that you choose a dental implant expert who has the proper education, training and competence in implant dentistry.

How long does it take to replace teeth using dental implants?

Each patient is different. After completing the necessary diagnostics, your implant dentist should provide you with a treatment plan including the estimated amount of time to complete the process. Total treatment time depends on your needs, medical and dental history, the health of the supporting bone in your jaw, and the technique and materials that will be used. It can be as short as a few months, or more than a year for more complex conditions.

Why should I choose professional teeth whitening over at-home treatments?

Nothing can replace professional help, so will always be better to have your teeth checked and corrected by a dentist. He or she can examine your teeth and determine whether there are concerns that require immediate attention other than common teeth problems. While if you choose to do at-home teeth whitening treatment, you may not be able to obtain a satisfying or a quick result.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Well-placed and cared for dental implants have the potential to last for decades. Caring for teeth restored with dental implants is just like caring for your natural teeth: brush, floss and visit your dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups.
