Dental Implants in Burlington Questions and Answers

August 1, 2022by admin

Our dental implants in Burlington help many people suffering from tooth loss. Even though there are other options, many patients choose this route. Here are some of the common questions they ask and the answers we often provide.

Question: What are these dental implants?

Answer: These are posts or artificial roots that are made of titanium metal. They are inserted right into the jawbone replacing the root of your original tooth. The implant is an anchor that holds an artificial tooth in place. This gets fitted on top.

Question: Can dental implants replace more than one tooth?

Answer: Quite often these appliances replace one tooth at a time. However, there are other options like All On Four dental implants that can replace several original teeth. Ask your dentist about the options they offer.

Question: Who are the best candidates for these appliances?

Answer: You need to have healthy bones and gums to get the most from dental implants in Burlington. Bad habits like tobacco use can lessen your chances for success. If you have gum disease, it will need to be treated before the implants are placed.

Question: Do they feel and look natural?

Answer: A dental crown gets placed over the top of the implant. It looks just like a natural molar. Not only that, the implant is secured to your jawbone. It feels more like a natural tooth than any other replacement option available.

Question: How successful are dental implants?

Answer: The titanium that gets used for dental implants has a success rate of 95%. Many of the implants that use this material can last for at least a decade. Most implants last much longer and many dental professionals expect them to be around for the lifetime of the patient.

Question: What do they cost?

Answer:  There are many factors involved when you are adding up the cost of dental implants. One of the bigger ones is how many teeth you need replaced. Your dental insurance is another big factor. Some dental plans don’t cover implants. It’s always a good idea during your first examination to ask your dentist for an estimate.

Absolutely amazing! Very highly recommend! Everyone made me feel welcome and always made me feel at ease as I was very anxious and embarrassed. I required Dentures the whole experience was awesome from start to finish. Very highly skilled! I drove one hour to and from each appointment and it was worth it!

The service is excellent by all the staff and Dr Cohen is by far the best dentist that I have ever been to. He is knowledgeable and experienced and ensures that you are comfortable while he is working on your teeth. Many people are concerned with the freezing process when having work done, but Dr. Cohen is so good that you will literally not feel anything. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen.

There is no joy living with bad teeth. Less joy understanding how expensive help can be. Most centres are more concerned with money, rather than the patient. Lakeside, Dr. Cohen and the team, are amazing. Why? Because they put me first. Are honest with options and realistic treatment. They want the same thing that I have wanted for years, to see me smile again. I believe in their team, their approach and their desire to make a difference for every patient. They have my trust.

Dr Michael did a great job on my first implant. I was so impressed with the high level of personal service that I transferred my account from a dentist where I had a 20+ year relationship. I feel Lakeshore Dental can serve me better as I need more crowns and implants. The office is clean, spacious and as safe as any business can be. I recommend Dr Michael and his excellent and very friendly support team

I was recommended this dental office by a coworker, I've had many dentists before that didn't understand how sensitive my teeth actually are and since my very first appointment here I knew I finally found the one. They are extremely friendly, very knowledgeable and will answer any questions you might have. Very professional and clean environment. They bill your insurance directly which is a huge relief, I'm so happy to have a dentist I can trust. They are so gentle, you also don't feel the needles going in! This is the first dental office where I didn't feel ANY pain whatsoever. I cannot say enough good things about them.
