Is a dental implant the best option for me?
Patients who have a single or multiple non-salvageable teeth could be candidates for dental implant placement. You’ll know for sure if you undergo a free clinical assessment by Dr. Tsvetov.
Will I need bone grafting?
As part of your free initial consultation, we’ll perform a CT scan to determine if you have enough bone. If not, bone grafting may be recommended.
What is the cost of dental implants?
The cost of dental implants depends on several factors. In this video, Dr. Tsvetov walks you through the details.
Is there a solution for people with no teeth?
Yes, even if all or most of your teeth are missing or compromised, there are multiple options:
- Removable dentures
- Overdentures supported by implants
- Fixed, All-on-4 dentures, which look and feel like natural teeth

Should I choose a dental bridge or dental implant?
Dental bridges require the filing down of the adjacent teeth that will hold it in place. Also, it’s not an effective way to avoid bone loss. On the other hand, dental implants are the most advanced option that’s currently available. They are natural-looking, completely stable since they fuse to the bone, and can last a lifetime. Also, your adjacent teeth remain intact.
What are teeth-in-a-day?
In some cases, we can remove a tooth and place a dental implant during one session. This type of treatment is known as teeth-in-a-day or All on 4. Your doctor will determine whether you could be a good candidate for such a procedure.
Do I have to have my wisdom teeth extracted?
Wisdom tooth removal is typically advisable for most people. Because of their position at the back of the mouth, they’re hard to clean, which makes them decay faster. They also contribute to crowding and misalignment. Watch the video to find out more.
What is a dental emergency?
There are times when a patient needs emergency dental treatment. Some of these instances include:
- Abscess and infection
- Intense pain
- Severe injury of the teeth

What should I do in a dental emergency?
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, you can try:
- To put your tooth back in its socket and make sure it stays moist if you’ve lost a tooth.
- To rinse your mouth with warm water and use a cold compress if you have a cracked tooth.
- To clean the area that hurts with warm water and see if there’s something stuck between your teeth if you’re in extreme pain.
