benefits of dental implants
at waterfront dental
Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth, and they are made to look and feel like your natural teeth. Your implant is surgically placed by Dr. Merguerian, and after treatment, your replacement tooth won’t shift the way that dentures can. When you leave our office with your new implant, you’ll have confidence and peace of mind knowing that your new tooth is durable and long-lasting. Call us now to schedule an appointment to restore your smile!
are dental implants right for me?
assessing your dental health
Since dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone in your jaw to support the small titanium post. During a consultation, Dr. Merguerian will thoroughly assess your dental health to make sure you are a good candidate for dental implants. Typically, patients who smoke or who have uncontrolled diabetes or periodontal disease are better served with other restorative options. Call us today to schedule an appointment and see whether implants are the right option for you!
the dental implant process
know what to expect
Once you have a consultation with Dr. Merguerian and determine that you are a good candidate for dental implants, the treatment process will begin. First, Dr. Merguerian will surgically insert the small, titanium post into your jawbone. Once this heals, a custom crown will be attached to the post. Together, the implant and the crown will act as a replacement tooth that looks and feels completely natural.
how much do dental implants cost?
The cost of implants can vary based on how many you need and how extensive the work is to surgically place your implant. At Waterfront Dental, we have resources for our patients and we do our best to keep your treatment within your budget.
