It is no secret that dental implants are considered the gold standard for tooth replacement, yet many patients understandably have questions about the process. At National Dental, we strive to be transparent in our communication with patients and will answer any questions you may have about dental implants. To help patients understand the treatment, our doctors have created a helpful dental implant FAQ list to answer some of the most common questions. Any additional questions you may have, or if you want to discuss your smile goals, can be asked at a complimentary dental implant consultation with our team.
