At NuLife Dental and Med Center, we pride our self on our commitment to transparency, integrity, compassion, and community. Our dentist even speaks several languages, including Spanish and Portuguese, to help everyone feel at home.
Part of our commitment to transparency means answering your questions. Below is a list of the most frequently asked questions that we hear from our patients. If you have a question that is not answered here, please contact us.
At NuLife Dental, we suggest replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant. A dental implant is an affixed and permanent tooth replacement that looks and functions just like a natural tooth. No one will know it’s an implant.
Dr. Hoover will assess your health and the condition of your gums to make sure you’re a good candidate for a dental implant. Occasionally, when jawbone deterioration is a factor, she may perform bone grafting to make sure your new tooth has a solid foundation.
Following this assessment, you’ll be scheduled to begin the implant process, which includes receiving your implant.
A dental implant is a small titanium post surgically implanted in your jaw. Over a period of weeks, this post fuses with your jawbone and creates a solid foundation for an abutment and your new tooth. The new tooth will match the shade and shape of your surrounding teeth.
Throughout your implant procedure, we will keep you relaxed and comfortable. We offer nitrous oxide, conscious sedation, ceiling-mounted television, music, headphones, blankets, pillows, and a great coffee bar! Note: dental implant placement is not particularly painful.
Dental implants can last for a long time provided you practice good oral hygiene, brushing and flossing twice per day, and visit your dentist regularly for exams and dental cleanings.
