Upgrade your smile with Dental Implants
Dental implants are the ideal solution for replacing missing or broken teeth. Beyond revitalizing your smile, implants are permanent and promote healthy jawbone growth. Whether you’re missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, our team at North County Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry features dental implant options that will restore your livelihood and renew your smile.
What are Dental Implants
Dental implants are a permanent replacement option for lost, extracted, or broken teeth. They are custom-fit to blend with the rest of your natural teeth, restoring functionality and esthetics to your smile. The process begins with Dr. Henninger placing the dental implant into the jawbone. From there, your body will naturally form a secure bond with the implant through a process called osseointegration. After a brief healing period, your smile will be ready to show off to the world.
The benefits of Dental Implants
We’ve already talked about how dental implants can renew the esthetics of your smile, but they offer an array of other benefits as well. The advantages of dental implants include:
- Improved speech
- Improved comfort
- Easier eating
- Improved self-esteem
- Improved oral health

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the lifespan of a Dental Implant?
While the life-span of a dental implant is greater than any other tooth-replacement option, its longevity mostly depends on how you care for it. Dental implants are immune to disease and infection, but that doesn’t apply to the rest of your smile. If you don’t properly care for your teeth, you may develop gum disease or other conditions that can cause the implant to fail. However, if you practice strong oral hygiene habits, your dental implant could last for more than 25 years.
What is the cost of a Dental Implant?
No two dental implant treatments are exactly alike, so the number of appointments, procedures, and costs of dental implants will vary from patient to patient. With that said, the cost of dental implants is favorable when compared to other tooth-replacement options. This is because implants can last significantly longer — even a lifetime — with proper care.
What is the best way to care for a Dental Implant after surgery?
The easiest way to avoid infection and dental implant failure is to keep your mouth clean. This means cleaning your smile thoroughly after each meal, beginning the day after your procedure. At North County Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste that contains non-abrasive ingredients to ensure that you don’t damage the implant or irritate the structures that support it.
