Here, our oral surgeon, Dr. Howard Cooke, has created a list of common dental implant questions and his answers to them. If you still have questions about the implant process, don’t worry!

Implants are considered the gold standard solution for replacing missing teeth because they look, feel and function just like natural teeth. The function and aesthetics of your smile will be nearly completely restored, allowing you to use it like normal and enjoy your favorite foods again. They also look and feel just like your real teeth and with proper care, can last you the rest of your life!
The cost of dental implants is unique to each person and their specific needs and goals. We recommend coming in for a private consultation to discuss your smile goals and discover your needs.
Dental implants are such a versatile solution that they can replace anywhere from one tooth to an entire mouth of missing teeth. We offer the revolutionary All-on-4® solution that can replace an entire arch with as few as four implants!
Dr. Cooke specializes in providing you with advanced, safe and precise implant placement. Your general dentist or prosthodontist will restore your dental implants, but we work closely with a local and experienced dental lab to ensure that your crown is made of the highest quality material with the highest quality standards.
We recommend scheduling a consultation to find out if you qualify for dental implants. Most patients with missing or failing teeth qualify for dental implants. In some cases, you may need preliminary treatment first, such gum disease care or bone grafting.
Our team is committed to providing safe, gentle implant care and we offer advanced anesthesia options to make the surgery as painless and worry-free as possible. Dr. Cooke is experienced in providing general anesthesia and IV sedation for most implant cases. Many of our patients feel like they end up sleeping through the surgery and waking up with the surgery complete and little memory of anything happening!
Caring for your new teeth is easy—just treat them like natural teeth. Brush and floss twice a day and get routine hygiene cleanings twice a year from your general dentist. An added benefit, your dental implants are resistant to staining and cannot get cavities!
