About Dental Implants
For a long-lasting and natural-looking replacement to missing teeth, modern dental techniques at DentalWorks - Grove City in Grove City, OH by our dentists offer dental implants to help restore a beautiful, healthy smile. Dental implants surgically place titanium posts in the jawbone to mimic the natural tooth root, so false teeth can be attached for a secure fit that doesn't require food restrictions or glues. The false teeth can be colored and contoured by our dentists to match the patient's teeth for a realistic appearance. For anyone who is missing one tooth or more, dental implants at DentalWorks - Grove City can be a great, long-lasting solution.

"Dr. Wong is excellent at working with the customers, is fair, and works well to please others.I really enjoy negotiating pricing and having her explain what would be best for me for my sister’s up and coming wedding next year.I know that she will be the person for whom I should speak to in regards of a second opinion on my tooth and will do her best to get it at best price for my finically situation.I will always stick with Dr. Wong’s advice and council with her if I can reach an agreement on price if I’m ever to make a change in the shade, color, or texture of my tooth when I’m able to get qualified dental insurance.She worked well with me on Care Credit, but I know that I will have to get my tooth changed eventually so it looks more natural to my other teeth as well. Thank again Dr. Wong and I hope that we can work out pricing for my tooth once again as soon as you can so I can get an adjustment."- J.B. / Google / Apr 05, 2019

What to Expect
Before a dental implant is placed, a thorough examination will be conducted by our dentists to assess the health and strength of the gums and jawbone. If the patient is a good candidate for dental implants, digital X-rays and physical impressions will help our dentists to determine the best placement for the dental implants during the procedure. The individual will be given local anesthesia and sedation if needed while our dentists place the titanium post into the jawbone. Over the course of 3 - 6 months, the implant and jawbone will fuse while healing and once the implant is secure, the false tooth or teeth will be attached to the implant using a connector. Our dentists will adjust the implant and replacement teeth for a comfortable and secure fit.
Most patients have little to no pain after their dental implants are finished, but some patients may have temporary tenderness and discomfort that can be relieved with an over-the-counter pain medication, such as aspirin or Tylenol®. To prolong the life of dental implants, patients should have a good home oral care routine including daily brushing and flossing. Regular dental appointments at DentalWorks - Grove City in Grove City, OH for professional cleanings and exams are also important to implant care. Dental implants can last a long time with proper care, but dental implants may eventually need to be repaired or replaced.
If dental implants are proven to be a medical need, the patient's dental insurance plan will usually cover part of the bill. However, cosmetic dental implants are often not covered by insurance companies. During the patient's consultation, the office staff of DentalWorks - Grove City can calculate their insurance coverage and go over payment options and financing plans.
