solutions for dental needs

What are dental implants, and how do they work?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into your jawbone. Once the implant is in place, a replacement tooth is attached to it, creating a natural-looking and functional tooth. The implant integrates with your jawbone, providing a strong and sturdy foundation for your replacement tooth.

Why should I consider dental implants?

Dental implants offer several benefits over other tooth replacement options. They are the closest thing to natural teeth, both in terms of appearance and function. They are also more comfortable and convenient than dentures, and they do not require the removal of healthy tooth structures like bridges do. Dental implants can also help preserve the integrity of your jawbone, which can be lost over time after tooth loss.

Is the dental implant procedure painful?

Most patients report only mild discomfort after the dental implant procedure. Our team will ensure that you are fully numb before beginning the procedure, and we will provide you with pain medication to manage any discomfort you may experience afterward.

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. You should treat your dental implant just like you would treat your natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups at Catalina Dental.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the number of implants needed and the complexity of the procedure. Our team will provide you with a detailed cost estimate before beginning any work, so you know exactly what to expect. We hope that these FAQs have been helpful in answering some of your questions about dental implants.
