What are the pros and cons of getting an implant?
Dental implants have been in dentistry for about 25 years. Did you know that the very first implants placed are still in great function? They are a wonderful way to replace missing teeth. They are so strong and so natural and so comfortable, that once you've gotten the implant placed, you'll forget what tooth it is.
If you're thinking about getting an implant, there are a couple of things you need to consider. One is the time frame with dental implants, it takes a little bit longer to get to the final product but it is so worth it. The second thing is that the cost of an implant might be a little more expensive than the alternative but that's just a short run expense. When you look over the course of your life, dental implants will be far less expensive than the alternatives. It is the best way to replace a missing tooth.

"Who would have thought that getting a crown could be so easy?? Dr. Caven's in-office machine created my crown while I waited, which meant no need for a second appointment--something that I greatly appreciated! The office staff is kind, calm, efficient and accommodating--just like Dr. Caven himself."- Chace B., JUL 2014
