Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

Dental implants rival natural teeth in function, feel and cosmetic appeal, and afford great benefits to your quality of life. Because dental implants integrate with the jaw and preserve bone health, they offer greater stability, longevity and durability compared with traditional bridges and dentures.

Dental implants consist of a biocompatible titanium screw acting as the “root” and a lifelike crown, bridge or denture prosthetic replacing the visible, or enamel, portion of a tooth. Dental implants integrate with the bone for extreme stability and support, closely mimicking the natural relationship between teeth and the jaw.

Dental implants are a minimally invasive procedure and very comfortable option for tooth replacement. Dr. Martinez ensures a relaxing procedure by thoroughly numbing treatment sites and offering sedation dentistry for those having dental anxiety.

The crown, bridge or denture portions of dental implants may need to be replaced over time due to normal wear and tear. But with proper daily care along with routine cleanings and exams, your dental implants can last a lifetime and rarely need to be replaced.

The cost of dental implants varies among Cape Coral, FL, patients, and is based on factors like the number of teeth to replace, the need for bone grafting or tooth extractions, and the type of implant procedure and restoration. A consultation with Dr. Martinez can determine your personal dental implant cost.

If you have lost bone in your upper or lower jaw, you may still be a candidate for dental implants with a bone grafting procedure. Dr. Martinez is highly skilled at preparing the jawbone for implant success through advanced technology and techniques that improve bone health, quality and quantity.

Dental implants are cared for just like your own teeth! All that is needed is thorough brushing and flossing daily along with routine cleanings and exams at a frequency recommended by Dr. Martinez.
