Dental Implant FAQS
Here are some things to ask yourself if you’re interested in dental implants or implant-stabilized dentures.
How will I pay for dental implants?
The cost of dental implants depends on how many implants you need and if you need any additional oral surgery to prepare for them. We offer flexible financing options for our patients so they can get the best care possible. Ask us what your options are and we’ll come up with a plan that fits your budget.
Is it painful to get dental implants?
We use gentle sedation options to make sure you remain calm and comfortable during your procedure. After your procedure, you may experience some tenderness along the gum line, which is to be expected. You can use over-the-counter pain medication to relieve some of this, or talk to Dr. Clauser about other pain relief options.
Are replacement teeth good for your dental health, too?
Replacing missing teeth doesn’t just restore the function of your teeth; it restores the health of your teeth. If you go too long with missing teeth, you are more susceptible to tooth decay, gum recession, and bone loss. Dental implants can slow or prevent harmful effects of missing teeth.
