Answers to Your Common Questions

Dental implants are the closest thing to real teeth you can get. They look, feel and function just like natural teeth and with proper care, can last you the rest of your life too. In addition, they promote proper jawbone growth and ensure your smile stays healthy in the long-term.

When placed and restored by Drs. Klein and Waltuch, dental implants have an over 98 percent success rate.

The cost of dental implants varies from person to person depending on their specific case. We recommend reviewing our cost of dental implant page to get a better understanding, then coming in for an examination and consultation to learn more!

Right here in our very own office! We are a unique practice because we have an in-house dental lab. This allows us to have a very hands-on approach when customizing your restorations, ensuring your new teeth match your smile goals and facial aesthetics. Dr. Klein is a trained and certified prosthodontist who specializes in the aesthetics of teeth, meaning you are in the hands of a specialist!

If you have any missing or failing teeth, you are likely a candidate for dental implants! The biggest causes that prevent the placement of implants is lack of bone volume or gum disease. Both of these conditions are treatable and after they are taken care of, you will be able to begin the implant process.

Thanks to sedation dentistry, having dental implants placed is not painful for most people. Our doctors are IV sedation certified to offer you the most advanced and soothing sedation possible. For many patients, they simply feel a slight pressure at the site of their dental implant.

Yes! Depending on your needs, we can offer you teeth in a day, which allows Drs. Klein or Waltuch to extract teeth, place implants and restore them all during the same appointment!

The best way to ensure your implants last, is to treat them just how you would normal teeth. Regular brushing and flossing, along with routine dental appointments for checkups and cleaning can ensure you keep your implants for the rest of your life!
