Dental Implants

Dental implants do not only replace missing teeth. They also replace your teeth roots, providing ultimate strength and durability. Dr. Nurein will use digital X-rays to examine your jawbone. With these sharp images, he can determine the optimal placement for your implant posts. Then he will surgically place the implants in your jawbone. After your bone and gums have healed, the implants will become a permanent part of your dental arch. Then Dr. Ahmed Nurein can attach a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture.

Dental implants typically have three parts:

1- The implant: A screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw.

2- The abutment: A permanent, but removable by your doctor, connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.

3- The crown (or prosthetic tooth): This is the part of the tooth that you can see. It’s usually made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and good looks.

You can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. If you need to restore a full arch, you may be a perfect candidate for the all-on-four treatment.

The Advantages of Dental Implants

Many dental experts consider implants to be the optimal form of tooth replacement. These advanced dental restorations offer a number of benefits, including:

Stability: Because implants will be permanently fixed in your jawbone, your new teeth will never slip out of place.

Durability: When properly cared for, implants can last a lifetime.

Convenience: Because implants are so stable, you will not typically face any dietary restrictions. It is also easy to care for implants. You will simply need to maintain routine hygiene and your biannual dental visits.

Enhanced oral health: Out of all forms of tooth replacement, implants are the only restorations that can prevent jawbone degeneration. With implants, you will not have to worry about a changing facial structure, and you will have a reduced risk for further tooth loss.

Aesthetics: Because implants are secure and sit right against your gum line, they are virtually identical to natural teeth. Our restorations are also made of advanced materials that have a natural color and sparkle.


Although dental implants come with a hefty initial price tag, their long-term value is unmatched. For patients requiring prerequisite bone grafting or a sinus lift, the cost is greater. While insurance won't necessarily pay for a complete implant process, financing can make dental implants an affordable option for most patients.


Patients can apply for dental implant financing with third party banks or their own private financial institutions. Those who are members of credit unions may qualify for a loan to pay for dental implants. In addition, we accept credit cards, and will split payments made by credit card, over a period of three months or longer. This translates to longer repayment periods for you. For example, most credit cards give you 60 days to pay back a certain payment from the date of payment. If we split the payment in 3 months, you will have 5 months to complete the repayment.
