How Dental Implants
Transform Your Smile Story

Every year, more than half a million people get dental implants. That’s not a surprising number considering that nearly 100 million people and two-thirds of middle-aged adults have lost at least one tooth.

So how do dental implants transform your smile story?

Implants provide a long-lasting solution

Dental implants with Dr. Cope are designed to last a lifetime. Through the process of osseointegration, the titanium used in your dental implant biologically fuses with your bone, spurring bone growth to strengthen your jawbone, and ensuring lasting results. The implant essentially plants new roots in your jaw to help maintain your facial shape and provide long-term bite stabilization.


Implants are cost-effective

Would you rather make a one-time investment in permanent tooth replacement or replace your bridges or dentures every 7 to 15 years? Implants may involve a higher investment on the front end, but they are also designed to last a lifetime. And that’s what West Columbia Dental is all about – personalized dentistry that creates lasting smiles.


Implants look great

Dr. Cope ensures your implants are shaded and custom-shaped to fit naturally in your existing smile. In terms of beauty, strength, and function, the only difference between your real teeth and dental implants is that they’re not real.


Implants promote oral health

Unlike the teeth you were born with, modern implants do not decay or get cavities. Bacteria and food particles still need to be brushed away to maintain healthy gums, but oral hygiene is much easier as implants behave like normal teeth. Also, unlike a tooth-supported bridge, dental implants do not require reducing other teeth to support the implant. With more of your teeth left intact, implants lead to better long-term oral health.

Dental implants with Dr. Cope offer a cost-effective, long-lasting, health-focused, and beautiful solution for missing teeth. If restoring your smile is something you’ve considered, we’d love to offer you a complimentary implant consultation.

Common Questions about Dental Implants


Am I too old?

Although osteoporosis and other age-related jawbone issues impact how implant treatment is accomplished, implants are designed for patients of all ages. If you’ve spent many years dealing with the challenges of dentures, now may be the time for you to experience permanent tooth replacement.


Is the treatment painful?

With today’s modern techniques, the treatment itself will be pain-free. You may experience some tenderness for a few days following surgery, but we have some simple solutions to help you through it. The discomfort will soon be gone and you’ll have a permanent tooth in its place.


Can any dentist provide dental implants?

Not all dentists have the advanced education and clinical skill to effectively place dental implants. Proper implant treatment requires a clinical professional like Dr. Cope who has invested the time to master the intricacies of precision implant dentistry.
