Dental Implant FAQ

Implants are considered the gold standard of tooth replacement options as they feel, look and function just like real teeth. You’ll be able to eat, chew and bite just as normal and most people will never know you were ever missing a tooth to begin with. And with proper care, you can expect them to last you the rest of your life!
With Dr. Wilhelm’s experience and education, you can count on a 98 percent success rate for dental implants. We only place implants in ideal conditions and can help you achieve the best oral state before committing to the treatment.

The cost of dental implants is dependent on many factors. We can’t fully determine the cost until an examination, but you can better understand the factors that influence the cost by reviewing our dental implant cost page.

With dental implants, you can replace as many teeth as you need! From a single tooth to multiple teeth and even an entire mouth missing teeth!

Yes! As a prosthodontist, Dr. Wilhelm is exceptionally skilled at both placing and restoring dental implants. He can create a natural and beautiful dental crown to cap your dental implant, a full denture or a fixed bridge and give you the stunning look you desire. Prosthodontists are the specialists at restoring implants, as they study for an extra three years of specialized training!

If you have one or more missing teeth, you’re likely a candidate for implants! We may have to perform some preliminary treatments before beginning the implant process, but only a consultation and examination with our doctor will help you discover your needs.

Many people falsely believe that implant surgery is painful. Dr. Wilhelm offers local anesthetic to block the sensation of pain and oral sedation to calm your nerves, giving you a soothing surgery free of discomfort!

Caring for your dental implants is simple. You just treat them like natural teeth! Brush and floss twice a day, and make routine dental checkup appointments with our office to ensure healthy implants that can last you a lifetime. If you experience any complications, Dr. Wilhelm is able to handle these in a timely manner.
