Our team at Fort Union Family Dental is here to help you smile with confidence again. Take the quiz to see if you are a candidate for dental implant treatment.
The dental implant posts are made from titanium. We use this metal because it’s biocompatible, which means it fuses with your jawbone for increased stability and durability that lasts. The fusion between the implant and bone can prevent or reverse the bone loss that happens when you lose one or more teeth.
Implants are typically more expensive than traditional removable dentures, but it’s a worthwhile investment in your oral health. The full cost of your implant procedure will depend on your overall treatment needs, such as the extent of restoration required to complete your smile. Our team will provide you with a complete breakdown of all costs and payment options during your consultation.
Yes, we do. We've partnered with CareCredit and LendingClub to offer affordable dental financing plans to cover the cost of implants and all associated services and procedures.
You will require a minor surgical procedure to place the implants in your jaw. Following your procedure, it’s normal to experience some pain and swelling while your mouth heals. Our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions and prescribed pain relievers (as needed) to help you manage any discomfort you may experience.
Your artificial tooth (called a crown) will only last 10-15 years before it needs to be replaced due to normal wear and tear. The implant itself fuses to your jawbone and can provide a stable foundation for your replacement tooth for the rest of your life with good oral hygiene and at-home care.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as you can. Missing teeth can impact your oral health as well as your overall physical well-being, causing problems biting, chewing, and eating properly. You also have a greater chance of developing gum disease, TMJ, crooked teeth, and other issues if you go without replacing your missing teeth.
