I’m already wearing a denture, am I still a candidate for Dental Implants?
Yes, dental implants can provide a life changing experience if you are not comfortable with your current dentures. Typically patients would need four or six implants in each arch to replace the entire denture. In many cases, your existing dentures if in good condition can be modified to retrofit the implants. If not, we do offer variety of fixed bridges or hybrid dentures to choose from at additional cost to replace the old dentures
I have insurance; Will my Insurance cover Dental Implants ?

I have option of HSA/Flex Spending account at my work, can I use that towards this procedure?
Yes, Dental implants are typically covered with these types of accounts. We can provide you a treatment plan with ADA codes. Be sure to consult with your HR department to make sure these codes are covered for Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account.
I am getting a tooth extracted; Will I need a Dental Implant ?
Yes, especially if you are going in for an extraction of a front tooth in your mouth (also called Esthetic Zone), you should seriously consider having a Dental Implant as soon as possible.
At the time of performing an extraction, the dentist can also place a bone graft in the socket. This will help secure the implant properly in you jaw bone. You will be given a temporary tooth while you are waiting for the tooth implant procedure to be completed.
Other option would be to replace missing tooth with a Bridge, which would require re-shaping/shaving the 2 adjacent teeth and putting crowns on them to support the bridge. With advances in Implant Dentistry, most people prefer to go with the Dental Implant option.
