Implants: The Right Choice for You
Modern technology for a more seamless and efficient experience.
During the consultation, we review your mouth, health, and x-rays. Imaging is quick and painless using CBCT technology (cone beam computed tomography). This helps us plan your treatment safely and accurately.
Step 1: We insert a small titanium post in place of the missing tooth root, which fuses with the jawbone for stability. Step 2: We attach a connector AKA abutment to the post. Step 3: A custom-crafted crown finalizes the restoration.
Safe, high-quality materials help ensure each dental implant part lasts for many years. The crown, which is the artificial tooth, looks and feels natural while you eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

Giving you the answers you need.
- How much does it usually cost for dental implants?
The cost of dental implants varies depending on your needs and goals. Factors that affect the total cost of treatment include the number of missing teeth, preparation work needed (patients must have healthy gums and a strong jawbone), and your dental insurance coverage.
Please contact our Stillwater Family Dental team to schedule a consultation and find out how much your dental implants in Stillwater, MN, may cost.
- What is the best age for dental implants?
The best age for dental implants is when the patient is in good overall health and has a fully developed jawbone. Tooth loss happens for many reasons and at any age, and we’re here to help young adults, middle-aged patients, and seniors get a full, healthy, and natural-looking smile back.
- Are dental implants worth it?
The short answer is yes; dental implants are worth it! But the real answer is the best tooth replacement for you depends on your needs, goals, and budget. For missing teeth, dental implants are the best way to replace one missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or a full set.
While dental implants typically seem like the more expensive option, they’re a long-term and permanent way to replace missing teeth. So, in the long run, the initial cost of dental implants may end up being less expensive than more frequent repairs and replacements of traditional dentures or bridges.
The best part, which makes dental implants well-worth getting, is the care-free confidence of having fixed, natural-looking teeth. So if you’re looking for a restoration that combines beauty and function, contact us for a dental implants consultation in Stillwater, MN.
- Do tooth implants hurt?
Using the latest technology, advanced dental implant placement techniques, and numbing, we help ensure that every dental implant procedure is safe and painless. While you may feel slight discomfort following treatment, we give you the tools to promote comfortable healing at home.
- Who is not suitable for dental implants?
During your initial consultation, we determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants. Patients who have poor overall health, serious gum disease, inadequate jawbone, take certain medications, or smoke daily are not suitable for dental implants.
Certain lifestyle changes or dental implant prep work may help these patients become eligible for surgery. Each patient is evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine which tooth restoration is best. Other tooth replacement options include removable dentures and bridges.
