Implants FAQ's

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically inserted into the jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. They serve as stable anchors for dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, providing a strong foundation for replacement teeth.

Candidates for dental implants are individuals who have one or more missing teeth, adequate bone density and volume in the jawbone to support the implant, and good overall oral health. Patients with certain medical conditions or habits such as smoking may require evaluation to determine their candidacy for implants.

Dental implants offer several benefits, including improved oral function and chewing ability, enhanced appearance and confidence, preservation of adjacent teeth and bone structure, and long-term durability with proper care. Unlike removable dentures, implants provide a permanent solution for tooth replacement.

The process of getting dental implants typically involves multiple stages and may take several months to complete. It begins with a comprehensive evaluation and treatment planning, followed by implant placement surgery. After a healing period of several months, abutments are attached to the implants, and custom-made dental restorations are placed on top.

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last for many years, decades, or even a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene practices, and avoiding habits that can damage the implants (such as smoking) are essential for ensuring the longevity of implants.

Read Our 5-Star Ratings

We are new patients to the practice and have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Joseph Merritt. Dr. Merritt is currently treating my mom who is 90 years old and helping her with some aging gum and teeth issues. The technology that Dr. MERRITT has introduced us to has been absolutely incredible but with technology comes questions. Dr. MERRITT took the time to explain everything to us, step-by-step and answered each and every question. He took his time and made sure Mom understood what he was recommending and why. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and caring approach to each conversation. We just returned from our second visit and again can report another great experience and the communication with the practice has been excellent. Kim coordinated all the transfer of mom’s dental records within an hour, so our visits have been very thorough. Did I mention the amazing technology? It is worth repeating. I am so relieved my mom is in excellent hands and we will be returning to continue the treatments Dr. MERRITT has recommended.
Dr. Vlass is my dentist even though I drive 1.5 hours to his office. I trust his judgment and he does a terrific job with my teeth. As I am advanced in years, and he has had to deal with some sensitive conditions in my mouth with outstanding results. I highly recommend their practice.
Have you ever thought you would take the time to give a dentist a review...let alone 5 stars? Well, me neither, until now. My business is all about relationships, so I pay attention when someone else values and understands that relationships are everything too. Joey Merritt, not only gets it, he embraces it. His actions and professionalism forced me to leave a dental practice that my entire family was immensely happy with when one emergency issue was treated with immediate concern at the expense of his personal time. Prior to Joey meeting me in a bad moment, the only thing we knew about each other was that my wife played tennis with his mom. What I learned after that about him was more than enough to immediately come home and tell my family that we had a new friend and dentist for life. True story.
I LOVE Dr. Merritt! He's so kind and compassionate. He's an incredible dentist! His staff is also on the same level. I've been going there for years. I first saw Dr. Vlass, then Dr. Merritt when he joined the practice. I can't recommend them enough!!
I feel that the staff listens to my concerns when I call and they try to schedule me as soon as possible. When I am seen I am confident of their care of my teeth and dental concerns. The staff is very professional! I have been seen by Dr Vlass and Dr Merritt and both are very caring and exceptional dentists. This is an outstanding dental practice! I love my dentists!!
