FAQ

Dental implants are small titanium posts implanted into the jaw to replace tooth roots and provide extra stability for replacement teeth. This makes them a great option for patients needing tooth replacements. Dental implants feel and look natural, and they prevent bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

A bone graft is a surgical procedure in which the dentist uses synthetic or donated bone tissue to restore lost tissue and improve dental implant stability. The dental patient must have enough jawbone to support the implant, so bone grafts often help patients prepare for implants.

Dental implants should be treated like natural teeth. Patients should brush twice daily for two minutes at a time with a soft-bristled toothbrush, floss daily to remove plaque and food debris, and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash to reduce bacterial buildup. Patients should also have regular checkups and cleanings with their dentists.

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. There are two types of dentures available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth, so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve your smile! They can help improve chewing and speech as well as support the facial muscles for a more youthful appearance. Dentures also help to prevent other teeth from changing position, which can lead to tooth and jaw misalignment. Once in place, they will serve you well for many years.

The cost of getting a new set of dentures will depend on several factors, including the type of denture you receive and how many teeth are being replaced. If you have dental insurance, your plan may cover some of the cost of your new denture(s). 

If you are missing all of your teeth and are looking for a way to replace them, you will need to talk to your dentists about which option is right for you. The best choice will depend on your overall health, requirement, and lifestyle habits. Your dentist will help you decide which option is best for you during your consultation.

Denture stabilization is the process by which dental implants can be used to hold dentures in place, providing a strong and firm foundation upon them to rest. If traditional adhesives are not working well enough for you, then you may want to consider getting implants to support your dentures. Implant-supported dentures are a great option for many people who are looking to have a stable and secure set of teeth that help them eat and speak normally again.

Dental implants help to prevent your dentures from slipping out of place when chewing or speaking. They also restore full chewing function, which many patients report as feeling more natural and similar to their natural teeth. If you have experienced tooth loss, your jawbone has begun to deteriorate without its tooth roots in place to stimulate the growth of new bone tissue. With denture stabilization, you can prevent further bone breakdown and restore your natural jaw structure over time. We may recommend stabilizing your existing denture or creating a new one for removable prosthetics. Your dentures will be anchored in place with small titanium implants that will bond with the jawbone. You will then receive a removable denture to snap into place on top of the implant posts. 

Oral surgery includes a variety of procedures that repair the mouth and jaw. Oral surgeons are trained to perform surgeries on the mouth, neck, and face. They can correct issues impacting the jaw, gums, tongue, teeth, and more. Some of the most common types of oral surgery include wisdom tooth extraction, dental implant placement, and bone grafting. Wisdom tooth removal is necessary when wisdom teeth become impacted or grow sideways. A dental implant replaces a lost or missing tooth with a false tooth made of titanium metal alloy. Bone grafting restores bone in the jaw after tooth loss, gum disease, or injury.

Dental insurance is a type of health plan that helps pay for the cost of dental care. Most plans help pay a certain portion of the cost of certain services, such as routine cleanings. These plans often require that you pay your deductible first before your insurance kicks in and helps pay for your care. It’s important to note that most dental insurance plans do not cover 100% of the cost of the work you need to be done. They often only cover a portion of it, leaving you to pay the rest out-of-pocket or through another form of payment, such as an HSA, FSA, or a CareCredit®️ financing plan. Plans are also subject to annual maximums -- the most your plan will pay for covered services in a year. Every policy is different, so be sure to talk to your insurance agent or visit the insurer’s website, so you understand how much of your care is covered through your insurance plan.

Getting dental insurance when you’re young and healthy is a great idea for several reasons. It gives you peace of mind that you’ll have the coverage you need to take care of your smile without worrying about unexpected out-of-pocket costs. It also protects your smile over time by catching potential issues early on and treating them before they become more serious issues.

CareCredit is a special credit card created specifically for healthcare services and dental work, including procedures like root canals. It’s a popular way to pay for medical expenses because it allows you to make smaller payments to your account balance over time rather than having to pay everything in one lump sum. Plus, you won’t pay finance charges in most cases as long as you pay the minimum monthly payment on time. Applying is quick and easy at carecredit.com. You’ll get a decision almost instantly, and most patients are approved within 24 hours. Once you’re approved, you can start using your card for services right away.

For dental patients, CareCredit is focused on two things: making costly procedures more affordable and helping patients get the care they need sooner. CareCredit offers no-interest and low-interest financing plans to help patients more easily manage the out-of-pocket costs associated with high-ticket procedures and treatments, including dental treatments such as root canal therapy, crowns, bridges, implants, veneers, and more. Patients can also use the CareCredit mobile app to manage their accounts and pay for dental services on the go from a mobile device. With CareCredit, you can use your card again and again for your entire family without reapplying. It works like a credit card, but it has two advantages: Special financing options and low monthly payments every time you use it.
