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.
