Open And Clear Communication—Always

It is no secret that dental implants are considered the gold standard for tooth replacement, yet many patients understandably have questions about the process. At National Dental, we strive to be transparent in our communication with patients and will answer any questions you may have about dental implants. To help patients understand the treatment, our doctors have created a helpful dental implant FAQ list to answer some of the most common questions. Any additional questions you may have, or if you want to discuss your smile goals, can be asked at a complimentary dental implant consultation with our team.

Frequent Questions And Answers

  1. Why Should I Choose Dental Implants?
    Dental implants are considered the most lifelike and natural replacement for missing teeth. They mimic the function and appearance of teeth so well, many other people will never be able to know you were ever missing teeth. Strong and stable in your bite, dental implants are the superior option to dentures, bridges or other temporary restoration options

  2. Do Dental Implants Have A High Success Rate?
    Yes! Dental implants placed by our experienced team have over a 95% success rate. We ensure such a high success rate thanks to our doctor’s years of experience and advanced technologies.

  3. How Much Will My Dental Implants Cost?
    Dental implants are unique to you and the cost is often determined by your needs and smile goals. There are many factors that go into the overall cost of dental implants that we can discuss with you during a complimentary consultation.

  4. How Many Teeth Can I Replace?
    Dental implants are able to be used to replace anywhere from one to an entire arch of missing teeth. Many times, we can replace an entire mouth of missing teeth with just a few dental implants!

  5. Do I Qualify For Dental Implants?
    Many patients qualify for dental implants due to the versatile nature of the treatment. However, having adequate jaw bone volume and a mouth free of gum disease is important. During an evaluation with our team we can help you discover if you need any preliminary treatments.
  6. Can I Still Get Implants If I Am Lacking Jaw Bone?
    Yes, you can, but you will need to receive a bone graft before we can proceed with the implant process. In some instances, we can plan your implants to be placed in areas of the jaw with the most bone, but this is determined on a case-by-case basis.

  7. Can I Get An Implant The Same Day As I Have A Tooth Extracted?
    Yes! We are able to extract problem or failing teeth and place a dental implant in the same day. We can also provide you with a temporary crown to restore the tooth and give it a natural appearance.

  8. What Is Teeth Tomorrow®?
    Teeth Tomorrow is a revolutionary full arch solution developed by our very own, Dr. Michael Tischler! Dr. Tischler and our team can place four to six dental implants into your jaw and give you a temporary prosthesis of teeth in just two days. Then, once your implants heal, we can fit you with an ultra-strong and attractive permanent bridge of teeth.

  9. Where Will My Dental Implant Procedure Take Place?
    Our Upper Eastside 40th Street location is fully equipped to handle every aspect of your dental implant procedure in-house. Everything will be done in one of our suites for your convenience and comfort.

  10. What If I Have Problems With My Implants?
    When placed by our team, we rarely run into problems. Our dental implants have over a 95% success rate. However, if you do experience failing dental implants, even from older implants, we have the skills and experience to help save them.

  11. How Long Will My Dental Implants Last?
    Dental implants are a lifetime investment! With proper care, you can expect them to last for the rest of your life.

  12. How Do I Take Care Of My Implants?
    To care for dental implants, simply treat them as natural teeth. Brushing twice a day and flossing regularly is important. We also recommend you continue to visit the dentist every six months for routine hygiene appointments and checkups.
