Question: My teeth bleed when I brush them. Is this normal?
Answer: No, your teeth should not bleed and it might be an indication of the
early stages of periodontal disease. You should make an appointment to
talk with your dentist. If you don’t already have a dentist, please
call us today to make an appointment and we will give you a free professional
consultation. Don’t put this off. . . your teeth were designed to
last a lifetime, but only with proper care.
Question: Is the dental implant placement procedure painful?
Answer: No, it is usually done under local anesthesia. Most procedures can be
done in your local dentist’s office
Question: How long does dental implant placement, healing and construction
of the replacement teeth usually take?
Answer: The entire process usually takes between 3 and 9 months, depending on
your treatment plan and the location of your implant placement.
Question: How often should I brush my teeth?
Answer: We recommend brushing your teeth after every meal, but at the very least,
twice a day.
Question: Are dental implants covered by insurance?
Answer: Like most elective procedures, dental implants are not covered by most
dental insurance plans. However, look for our specials for implant discounts
and as always, we offer financing and payment plan options.
Question: What’s better for my teeth? A soft or a hard tooth brush?
Answer: A hard toothbrush can scratch the enamel of your teeth so we typically
recommend a soft tooth brush.
