Are Implants Safe?

Absolutely! Dental implants have been a part of periodontic treatments for decades. They're made of biocompatible materials, meaning they're designed to work harmoniously with your body. Under the skilled hands of Dr. Mermelstein, the procedure is both safe and comfortable.

Dental Implants: Pros and Cons

Every dental procedure comes with its own set of advantages and considerations. Here's what to consider with dental implants:


  • Durability: Implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
  • Natural Look and Feel: They're the closest thing to your natural teeth.
  • Preserve Facial Structure: Implants help maintain your face's natural shape and prevent bone deterioration.


  • Initial Cost: While implants might have a higher upfront cost than some alternatives, their longevity and benefits often justify the investment.
  • Surgical Procedure: It's a minor surgery, but a surgery nonetheless. Recovery is typically smooth, with most patients back to normal in no time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there food restrictions for dental implants?

As you heal from the implant surgery, you’ll need to restrict yourself to liquids and soft foods. After you’ve healed up, you can resume your regular diet. Implants behave like normal teeth, so you’ll be able to get back to eating crunchy, chewy foods in no time. Dr. Steven Mermelstein will instruct you on your custom timeline.

Can I get my teeth whitened if I have a dental implant?

Yes, though your implant’s crown won’t react to the whitening treatment the way your teeth will. As your natural teeth whiten, your implant will most often remain the same color. Sometimes patients will get their teeth whitened before their implant surgery so their crowns can be painted to match their whitened teeth. If you’re considering this option, consult with Dr. Mermelstein on when to get your teeth whitened.

Are Implants Worth It?

Consider this: Would you rather opt for a temporary fix or a long-term solution? While there are cheaper alternatives available, dental implants stand out as the gold standard in tooth replacement. They offer unparalleled stability, aesthetics, and function. So, in terms of long-term benefits and overall oral health, implants are often a top choice.

Pricing and Insurance: The Investment in Your Smile

We get it — cost is a significant factor. But let’s reframe the perspective:

  • Long-Term Savings: Given their durability, implants can be more cost-effective in the long run than other alternatives that might need frequent replacements.
  • Insurance Options: We collaborate with various insurance providers to help offset your costs.
  • Financing: Concerned about the initial price? Talk to us about financing options to make your implant journey more affordable.

Remember, it's not just about replacing a tooth; it's about investing in your confidence, your appearance, and your health.
