Common questions about dental implants
Who needs dental implants?
Anyone missing one or more teeth may be a candidate for dental implants. Whether you’ve lost a tooth due to disease, injury, or extraction, dental implants are the best way to fill the gap and restore your smile.
Are dental implants safe for your health?
Dental implants are not only safe for your health, but can improve your health and happiness. Left unrepaired, missing and damaged teeth can cause serious problems:
- Inability to speak and chew normally
- Bone loss
- Jaw pain and infection
- Gum disease (which can lead to problems like heart attack and stroke)
We care about your health and want the best for your smile. Find out if dental implants are right for you.
How do dental implants work?
Our medical-grade implants are made of strong and resistant biocompatible material and replace your tooth’s root. The implant strengthens your jawbone and provides a stable foundation for the visible portion of your implant — which may be a crown, dental bridge, or fixed denture.
How long does a dental implant last?
Dental implants have long-term success rates of up to 95%, function just like natural teeth, and can last a lifetime. Additionally, dental implants from Pinecrest Smiles will not decay and don’t require any special at-home care.
