Replacing lost teeth is an incredibly important step patients should take to preserve their oral health. Since tooth loss can have devastating effects on oral health, our dental team offers dental implants to restore incomplete smiles.

Providing a complete restoration of the entire tooth, including structures below the gum line, dental implants are permanent replacement teeth that look and feel like natural teeth. Implants can be used in two different ways. An implant can replace one missing tooth or a series of implants can replace an entire arch of teeth.

Sedation for Implant Procedures

Dr. Prada and our team work diligently to make sure that our patients are comfortable and relaxed throughout procedures, including the placement of dental implants. To promote a positive experience, we offer sedation dentistry. Depending on the patient’s needs, sedation methods vary. We offer nitrous oxide or “laughing gas”, oral sedatives, and IV sedation.
Single Dental Implants

When used to replace a single tooth, a titanium post will be placed into the jawbone where a tooth’s roots should be. Titanium is ideal because it is biocompatible, meaning that the jawbone will bond to the post over time. This allows the implant to function like a tooth’s root and support a dental crown. Once the bone has bonded to the implant, a custom dental crown will be attached. Crowns are made to perfectly fit between teeth and offer a sturdy biting surface for chewing food. With proper care, implants can easily last for 40 years or more.

Common Questions

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a metal prosthetic used to replace the root system of a missing tooth. Dental implants are used to support restorations like crowns or bridges to increase oral function and preserve oral tissue after tooth loss. Made from titanium, a dental implant is only a few millimeters wide and resembles the ridged surface of a screw. It is embedded into the jawbone and will become stabilized through a process called osseointegration.

A dental implant is unique to other prosthetics like bridges or dentures because it replaces tooth structure beneath the gums. Since bone and gums support implants, they can last for decades. Sometimes, a dental implant can last for the rest of a person’s life.

How much do dental implants cost?

The price of dental implants can vary for each person. For instance, the more prosthetics a person receives the higher the cost. Moreover, preliminary treatments might be needed such as tooth removal and tissue grafts. If treatments prior to implantation are required, it will affect price. Lastly, one’s costs are affected by insurance coverage. Dental coverage varies among insurers and plans so it is important to determine what your insurance covers. At your consultation, we will be able to give you an estimate of what you can expect your costs to be.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Determining candidacy for dental implants is a process best determined by an oral health professional. An examination is necessary to evaluate a person’s oral health and general wellness. Since dental implants rely on bone mass and gums for support, a person will need adequate tissue to anchor the implant. Sometimes inadequate bone mass or gum tissue can be improved with grafting procedures. If you want to know if dental implants are right for you, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our team. You consultation is also a great opportunity to ask questions and address concerns.

How are dental implants placed?

Implants are placed through a surgical procedure. They are embedded into bone through empty tooth sockets.
