What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is an appliance used to replace the roots of teeth. The implant is surgically attached to the jaw bone and an artificial tooth is attached to the top of the implant, creating a natural looking, undetectable replacement for the missing tooth.

Dental implants with artificial teeth are the closest thing to regrowing your natural teeth. They are strong, stable, durable and virtually undetectable. By filling gaps left by missing teeth, implants can provide better chewing ability and head off jaw joint problems.

Dr. Hansen has been placing and restoring dental implants for more than 12 years.

Implant Supported Dentures

A traditional denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. Complete dentures replace all the teeth in a jaw and fit directly on the gums and supporting bone. Partial dentures fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, resting partly on the gums and partly on the remaining teeth.

Dentures attached to implants give support to the cheeks and lips creating a more youthful appearance. Speaking, chewing, swallowing and smiling are also improved due to the confidence that stems from having the dentures firmly secured in the mouth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is getting a dental implant worth it?

Your teeth affect everything - from your smile and confidence, to your ability to eat, speak and participate in everyday activities. There is no better option to restore missing teeth. As a permanent restoration, dental implants are an ideal investment in your oral health.

Do I really need a dental implant?

In many circumstances a dental implant isn't necessary. When you visit us for your complimentary consultation we will provide you with an accurate, honest diagnoses. If you don't actually need an implant placed we won't try and push you into getting one.

How long does an implant last?

Nothing lasts forever, but for most patients 45 years or older a dental implant will last for life. The implant itself won't typically need replacement but the crown or cap placed on the appliance may need restoration or replacement every 10-15 years.

Does insurance cover dental implants?

Our wonderful staff will work with you to see if your insurance company will cover the dental implant procedure. If for any reason it's not covered, we will let you know and will work with you ​to develop a financial plan if needed. Our patients often tell us that it's completely worth the investment of their time and money to permanently replace their missing teeth with dental implants.

Will I lose anything by coming in for the free consultation?

Of course not. The consultation is completely free of charge. We are limited in how many consultations we can schedule during any given period - so make sure to schedule yours as soon as possible.

What payment options are available?

Yes, ask our office about financing options or payment plans. CareCredit® offers reasonable interest rates for patients who need to finance their dental care.
