Will People Be Able To Tell That I Have Dental Implants?
Dental implants are specifically designed to match the look and color of your surrounding teeth, making it nearly impossible for anyone to tell the difference from your natural teeth and a dental implant.
Are Dental Implants Covered By Insurance?
There are countless insurance policies available depending on what your employer has chosen for you and each plan covers dental procedures in different ways. Our experience at Excellence In Dentistry is that insurance companies are finally acknowledging dental implants as the standard of care when it comes to replacing a missing tooth. We encourage you to call your dental insurance provider to find out specifically what will be covered.
Our ultimate goal is to maintain your oral health and our amazing administrative team is here to assist you with any information you or your insurance company may need to maximize your insurance benefits.
How Painful is the Dental Implant Procedure and Surgery?
The Dental implant procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Most patients who have received dental implants say the procedure is no more uncomfortable than a regular tooth extraction. Most discomfort following the procedure can typically be treated with over-the-counter medication (e.g., Tylenol, Motrin).
If you are worried about dental discomfort or suffer from dental anxiety, we also offer oral and IV sedation dentistry.
How Do I Care For My New Dental Implants?
You will care for your dental implants just as you would your natural teeth. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will ensure your dental implants, and your remaining teeth, stay clean and in good health for years to come.
