Dental Implant FAQs  

If you are considering dental implants, it is important to discuss all concerns with your dentist or oral surgeon before making a decision. Here is some helpful information based on common patient questions and concerns below: 

Q: Do dental implants function like natural teeth? Do they last a lifetime?

A: They preserve the structure of the face and jawbone to allow you to eat, speak, and otherwise function just like you would with your natural teeth, and they can last a lifetime with proper care.

Q: Can dental implants be placed in both the upper and lower jaw?

A: Yes, they can be implanted anywhere in place of missing teeth.

Q: Does insurance cover dental implants?

A: Because they are considered to be cosmetic dental treatments, insurance typically does not cover implants. However, some insurances now cover up to 50% of implant procedures. 

Q: Are implants better than dentures?

A: Implants are considered to be a better option than dentures, due to being more advanced in terms of longevity and function including speech. Implants also preserve your facial structure more effectively than dentures. 

Q: Are dental implants safe?

A: Implants have been used for decades and are a safe and reliable option.
