Dental Implant FAQ


What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a permanent replacement for the root of a missing tooth. It is actually a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone. An abutment and crown is then placed on the implant to create a new tooth that is permanent and looks just like a natural tooth.

How are dental implants different from dentures?
Dentures are a removable, full or partial set of teeth that are removed and cared for in a special way. Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth that can be cared for just like natural teeth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants look and feel like real teeth, are permanent, allow you to eat the foods you want, generally are very successful replacements for natural teeth, and are relatively inexpensive.

Who can place a dental implant?
Dr. Firlik can place implants in her office.

How much do implants cost?
The price of your dental implants will vary based upon the number of implants you have placed and your insurance coverage. Please schedule a consultation with us to discuss our fees and financing options.

Do dental implants hurt?
No. A local anesthetic will be given before the procedure so that you do not feel any pain. If you have anxiety or fear you should discuss sedation options with Dr. Firlik.

How long do implants last?
When cared for properly, implants should last a lifetime. Proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits are essential to the success of your implant.
