Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Do you place dental implants at your practice? How do I go about getting them placed?

Answer: We do not place implants. We will speak with you about your goals and will then provide you with a referral to an oral surgeon that we know well and trust. You will visit the surgeon to learn more about implants, to schedule a time, and to receive them.

Question: If you don’t provide the oral surgery for dental implants, is there some part of the process that I can take care of with your practice? Can you help me with my tooth replacement?

Answer: Of course! We restore your implants, once you have received them and recovered. This means that we will place the custom restoration on your implant or implants, which replaces the crown or crowns of your missing teeth.

Question: Will implants really stand the test of time? I’ve heard that they can last for an eternity but that sounds like an exaggeration!

Answer: The posts that you receive (implants) will most certainly be able to stand the test of time and may be with you for the rest of your life. Your restorations will also prove quite durable, often providing decades of wear!
