What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.
Who does this procedure?
At Zeus Dental Care, either Dr. Bahareh Gamini, or Dr. Peyman Safari-Pour will walk the patient through the process. The number one priority is to make sure the patient is a good candidate for this procedure and to go over any question that they may have.
What is the cost of Dental Implants?
We provide our patients with 100% custom solutions based on their needs, based on the condition of their jaw and gums. For most patients, the average cost of a single implant is a tad over $4000.
Who can get Dental Implants?
Dental Implants can be performs on patients who have healthy gums and enough bone in the jaw to hold the implant. If a patient’s jawbone doesn’t allow us to perform implants, a bone graft may be done to build up the jawbone.

If you are prone to tooth decay, your dentist may suggest an X-ray annually to identify weak spots and treat them before the decay progresses.
