Implants

Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.

Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth.

Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.

Like any restoration, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.

  • "Doctor Coston is honest, gentle and thurough. He doesn't try to upsell and push treatments like some area dentists that I've seen. The most positive and calm experience at a dentist I've ever had. His hygienists are knowledgeable and accurate in their cleaning. I also have had a filling done by Dr. Coston, which I'm usually very anxious about, but it was surprisingly comfortable and easy."

  • "I have been seeing Dr. Coston for at least 10 years. I could not ask for a more caring, knowledgeable dentist! I truly loathe going to the dentist, but Dr. Coston always ensures I am comfortable and pain free. I love all the hygienists and the front office staff! Just all around awesome!"

  • "I have been a patient of Dr. Coston for about 10 years. He is the best dentist I have ever been to! He is the epitome of professional, kind, and caring. He is an extreme perfectionist, the best kind of dentist anyone would want. I referred my friends and my family members and they have also been patients for years and have regular appointments with him. His staff is excellent. Yelp and other social media is a great source of feedback for us.....however....there are malevolent people out there, (such as scorned exes), who take unnecessary and reprehensible steps to defame and smear others. It is despicable for anyone to do so to an individual with an esteemed and highly respectable character."
