“I have just started using Dr. Conte as my dentist at the beginning of the summer. Had to have a considerable amount of work done. I am a veteran and uninsured. His billing is very affordable and his work is second to none. Great guy. Staff is awesome too.”
Just because you lose a tooth doesn’t mean you’re doomed forever to a disappointing smile or difficulty chewing. Dental implants are a practical and permanent solution that our team can provide by surgically placing an anchor for a replacement tooth.
At Conte Dentistry, dental implants happen in three phases:
- A skilled dentist places the post into the jawbone
- The area heals and undergoes osseointegration, which means it combines with the bone to create a solid foundation.
- A artificial tooth is placed securely onto the implant.
Dental work can be daunting, but be assured, we go above and beyond to make your experience easy and efficient. Our patients are thrilled with not only the look of their smiles after treatment but also the considerate care they receive at each visit.
Call Conte Dentistry to schedule an appointment so we can assess your unique needs and find a custom solution that’s worth smiling about!
Every smile is worth saving! Schedule an appointment to see if a dental implant could restore the look and function of your mouth.

Dental Implants Q&A
What are dental implants?
How do dental implants work?
Placing dental implants requires a certain amount of healthy jawbone. Without enough tooth-supporting bone, the implant won’t bond to your jaw and can even fall out. To ensure you have enough bone in your jaw, the team may recommend a bone graft before the implant procedure.
Once the team places the implant, it bonds to the jaw as your mouth heals. This is called osseointegration. Your replacement tooth then attaches to the implant.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
There are many advantages of dental implants over less permanent solutions, such as a dental bridge or dentures, including:
Unlike dentures, which sit on top of your gums, dental implants connect to your jawbone. Once your mouth heals, you may not even notice them. They won’t irritate or rub up against your gums like full dentures.
Because the team places dental implants into your jawbone, you never have to take them out for cleaning. You can care for them just as you would your natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing.
Dentures and dental bridges typically need replacement after 5-10 years. Implants, on the other hand, can last for 25 years or more.
Many people never need to replace their dental implants. However, if you do have problems with your replacement tooth or the implant itself, the team at Conte Dentistry performs dental implant restoration to preserve your implant.
Dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth, so you can smile, speak, and laugh with confidence.
Many people with dental implants also have an easier time speaking and chewing comfortably than they do with traditional dentures or a bridge.
What happens during the dental implant process?
Your mouth must fully heal before your next appointment. This typically takes between six and 12 weeks. When you return to the office, the team takes impressions of your mouth to create your new replacement tooth or teeth.
At your final visit, they connect the exposed portion of your dental implant to your artificial tooth for a fully restored smile.
