1. Do you use digital x-rays?

Yes. Digital x-rays are one of our greatest preventive tools and an essential part of care.

2. Is the implant placement procedure painful?

Patients often fear that receiving an implant will be painful, but this is not the case. We use local anesthesia to numb your gums, and you can expect the procedure to feel about the same as getting a filling. There is some pressure, but no pain.

3. How much pain will I feel after implant placement?

Patients experience little to no pain after placement, but we will also give you a prescription to preemptively combat pain and swelling.

4. How long does it take for an implant to heal and for me to get my final implant restoration?

The length of time required for healing depends on the location of your implant. The general rule is an implant placed in the upper jaw will take 3 to 6 months, while one in the jaw takes 2 to 3 months. Once the implant has healed and integrated, it will be restored for the final time.

5. How long does an implant last?

An implant that has fully healed should last for up to 30 years when you care for it properly.

6. How do I care for a new implant once it is finished?

Once your implant is installed and has a crown added to it, you just need to maintain a normal good oral health routine. You should brush and floss on a daily basis, drink plenty of water, and eat healthy meals with lots of vegetables.

7. Do you do veneers?

At our office, we specialize in the placement of porcelain veneers. Porcelain is durable and sought after material capable of making subtle to dramatic changes based on your personal preferences. Our veneers can be placed to cover a variety of cosmetic defects, including:

  • Unwanted spaces between the teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Crowded or crooked teeth
  • Chips, cracks, or worn enamel
Our dentists are Lumineer certified as well, which means they can apply a special type of veneer known as Lumineers. These are ultra-thin and designed to be more comfortable for you, the patient.
