If you’re finally ready to take the leap toward a new smile, we bet you have many questions about dental implants. Dental implants are a great option to replace missing teeth and keep your smile looking and feeling natural! Find several answers to frequently asked questions about dental implants:

Is there a limit on the number of teeth I can replace?

No, there is not a limit. You can replace as few or many as necessary to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Dr. Tomlinson will gladly discuss your options and talk to you about how many dental implants are necessary to revive your smile.

Could my mouth reject the dental implant?

Because the dental implant contains no living matter, it’s very rare that the mouth rejects the implant. The only reason an issue occurs is due to an infection caused by bad oral hygiene. The Athens Oral Surgery Center team will instruct you in detail how to care for your dental implants so you can have 100% success.

Why are dental implants more expensive than other teeth-restoring options?

The cost of dental implants is related to its durability and longevity. It’s no secret that dental implants last longer and perform better than other teeth-restoring options available. We understand that cost is a factor for many people, and that’s why we will gladly discuss payment and/or see if your insurance will cover it.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

When an adult tooth is knocked out or extracted, there won’t be another natural tooth breaking through the gums to replace it. Dental implants serve as a fake – but very natural-looking tooth – to fill the void. This will ensure your teeth do not shift, you can continue eating foods that you like, and your smile will be full!
