What Are Dental Implants?

This treatment is an increasingly popular permanent solution that can last for a lifetime.

What Goes Into the Cost of Implants?

While implants do cost more upfront, there are many factors that go into the final cost, so the price can differ for each patient. Some of the factors include the number of implants needed, the materials used, whether a bone graft or sinus lift is needed, and the use of sedation. To understand everything affecting the cost of the procedure, talk to your periodontist.

Will They Last Forever?

Dental implants have a high success rate and can last for decades or even the rest of your life with the right treatment. However, there is also a slight risk they could need replacing. It depends on how you care for them and if you get in for your regular dental checkups. As long as you visit Dr. Kazmer regularly, your implants should last for a long time.

How Do You Care for Implants?

You can take care of implants just like your natural teeth – through daily brushing and flossing. Our team can offer additional tips for keeping your implants looking like new. The other part of properly maintaining your new teeth is to keep your regular dental visits.

Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?

Not everyone is a good candidate for implants, so you will want to consult with Dr. Kazmer beforehand. If you do not qualify for implants, we may be able to explore other treatment options for you.
