Dental Implant Q&A

Are you interested in dental implant treatment? Read answers to common questions that many patients have about implant treatment:

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants:

  • Look like natural teeth
  • Can secure a dental bridge or denture
  • Offer a permanent restoration
  • Make it easier to speak
  • Do not have dietary restrictions

Contact our Newport office if you have one or more lost or missing teeth. During a dental consultation, we can find the right implant restoration to meet your current needs.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are permanent dental restorations. This is because implants are titanium posts that eventually fuse to the jawbone. The dental implant posts are permanent, though a dental crown, bridge, or denture may need to be replaced over time. To ensure that your implants last, gently brush and floss the implant’s crown and any remaining natural teeth.

Can you secure a removable bridge or denture with implants?

Yes, if you have a removable restoration but would like to benefit from implants, we can help. Our team can examine your dental bridge or denture to determine where to place your dental implants. We may also provide you with a new bridge or denture prosthetic if your restoration is old or damaged.
