    Teeth That Look and Feel Like Your Own
    Get natural-looking teeth with a realistic feel. Experience the comfort of teeth that blend seamlessly with your own.
    Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tooth roots made of titanium. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
    Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
    Dr. Kutsikovich has received advanced training in the surgical placement of dental implants. He has been certified in the diagnosis and placement of single and multiple implants, immediate implant placement, sinus augmentation, and multiple implant placement for dentures as well as regenerative procedures necessary to prepare sites and maintain implants.

    Who Actually Performs the Implant Placement?
    Ever wondered who actually puts in dental implants? Let’s dive in and uncover the unsung heroes behind implant placement.
    Implants represent a collaborative endeavor seamlessly orchestrated between an Implantologist and a Restorative Dentist. Dr. Rita, as the Implantologist, undertakes the pivotal role of executing the implant surgery with precision, adeptly navigating through the complexities of tooth extractions and administering bone grafts when deemed essential. Concurrently, the Restorative Dentist steps in to craft and affix the permanent prosthesis, ensuring a seamless integration of form and function.
    Throughout the implant journey, your dedicated dentist orchestrates the creation of any temporary prosthetic solutions, providing both aesthetic continuity and functional support during the transitional phases of the implant process. In this symbiotic partnership, each professional’s expertise harmonizes to deliver optimal outcomes and a restored smile that seamlessly blends aesthetics with functionality.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Got questions about dental implants? Check out our FAQs! Learn about the procedure, recovery time, costs, and more. We’ve got you covered with straightforward answers to common queries.
    What are dental implants?
    Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
    Generally, anyone with good oral health who has lost a tooth or teeth due to injury, disease, or decay may be a candidate for dental implants. It’s important to have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant. A consultation with our dentist can determine if you’re a suitable candidate.
    With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups. The longevity of implants also depends on factors like the patient’s overall health and habits such as smoking, which can affect healing and implant success.
    Most patients report minimal discomfort during the dental implant procedure. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area, and some patients may also opt for sedation to relax during the procedure. Afterward, mild soreness or swelling can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and typically resolves within a few days.
    The dental implant process typically takes several months to complete. After the initial surgery to place the implant, there is a healing period of 3-6 months during which the implant integrates with the jawbone. Once the implant has bonded with the bone, the final restoration (crown) is attached, completing the process.
    While dental implants may have a higher initial cost compared to other tooth replacement options, they are a long-term investment in your oral health and quality of life. The exact cost of dental implants can vary depending on factors such as the number of implants needed, any additional procedures required, and your dental insurance coverage.
    Yes, dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full arch of teeth. Depending on the number of missing teeth and their location, our dentist will recommend the most suitable treatment plan, which may include individual implants, implant-supported bridges, or implant-supported dentures.
    Dental implants offer numerous benefits, including improved appearance, speech, and chewing ability compared to traditional dentures or bridges. They also help preserve bone structure and prevent further tooth loss by stimulating the jawbone, promoting long-term oral health.
    Like any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with dental implants, such as infection, nerve damage, or implant failure. However, these complications are rare when performed by a skilled and experienced dentist. Our team will thoroughly evaluate your oral health and discuss any potential risks before proceeding with treatment.
    Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. It’s essential to brush and floss daily to remove plaque and bacteria, preventing gum disease and implant failure. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are also crucial for maintaining the health and longevity of your dental implants.

Her knowledge and care has made such a difference in both my life and my smile. 🙂 The staff is a true highlight of this office & always make me feel so welcomed and cared for. Everyone from Cindy and Erica at the front desk, to all of the wonderful hygienists who have worked on me over the years. I can’t imagine doing anywhere else for all my dental needs.
