1. Who are implants for?

Implants are for best suited for adult patients who may be missing one or many teeth, have chipped, cracked or broken teeth, or dead / dying teeth.

2. Will dental implants last forever?

Dental implants can last for many years with proper care. Many of our patients have enjoyed them for ten years or longer. The key to a long implant life is making sure you keep your regularly scheduled dental visits with us and practice proper hygiene at home.

3. What is dental implant surgery?

Dental implant surgery involves the creation and placement of a dental implant into your mouth and jaw. We’ll begin by taking digital scans of your mouth so that we can create the implant(s) which will be perfectly designed for you. Once created, we’ll place the implants in your mouth as a permanent solution.

4. Can I afford dental implants?

At Station Square Dental, we hope to make care affordable to patients seeking our services. We offer interest-free payments through ZipMoney and have a HICAPS machine on site to process any health fund claims on the spot. During your consultation with us, we’ll be able to provide you with a better idea of any associated costs to you.

5. Are dental implants painful?

When we perform dental implant surgery for patients, we always use the most advanced anaesthetic techniques. During your care, you won’t feel a thing. While the area may be sore or tender following implant placement, there should be no serious pain associated with it. We’ll schedule you for checkups afterward to make sure everything is healing precisely.
