Choose the Implants That Are Right For Remaking Your Smile

Dental implants restore your smile if you’re missing one tooth or need to replace all of them. Dr. Farrell can even provide oral surgery procedures such as bone grafts to help you receive them if your jaw isn’t strong enough to support them.

Dr. Farrell makes sure you’re a good candidate for implants by first taking digital X-rays of your mouth. These are safer and clearer than traditional X-rays, and they allow him to place the implants where they will best benefit your smile. Based on your images and other factors, you can receive two types of implants:

  • Traditional Dental Implants – These implants are titanium replacement tooth roots that are gently positioned into your jaw. The implants naturally fuse to your jawbone to serve as dependable, long-lasting anchors for replacement teeth.
  • Mini Dental Implants – Mini implants are a smaller version of traditional implants. They are used if you don’t have enough bone mass in your jaw to support regular implants. You can still benefit from a fully functioning smile!

If you require tooth removal, which is common for many patients receiving full-arch implants, Dr. Farrell will gently perform the surgery without referring you to a specialist.

To ensure you remain stress-free and pain-free during any procedure, we provide local anesthesia and can administer safe dental sedation.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Modern dental implants are small metal posts, usually made from titanium, that your dentist places in your jaw to serve as replacement teeth roots for missing teeth. Your implants will fuse with your jawbone to form a sturdy base for new replacement teeth. Implants anchor crowns, bridges, and dentures to give you back a beautiful smile and strong bite.

Do dental implants hurt?

Our patients usually experience only mild discomfort after getting their new implants. Your dentist will use local anesthesia to ensure your mouth is numb and you don’t feel any pain. Plus, you have the option of taking a small pill to help you relax and eliminate any dental anxiety you may experience.

Can dental implants be removed?

Dental implants could be removed, although it is not likely you would need to have them removed. Once your implants are placed in your jawbone, they will fuse with the bone and last for decades, if not a lifetime. Your replacement teeth attached to the implants will last five to 10 years on average.

Are dental implants covered by insurance?

Your dental implant procedure may be covered in part by your insurance. You would have to check with your individual carrier to see what portion they will take care of. We’ll work with your insurance to help you maximize your benefits. We’ll also make sure you know how much your part of your treatment will be before we begin.
