Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that are attached in the jawbone on the area of the missing tooth/teeth. This provides patients a solid foundation for their removable or permanent teeth. It enables patients to have a natural looking and functioning teeth replacement that gives them the perfect smile and the ability to eat almost anything.


Dental implants are embedded to your jawbone during a brief surgical procedure. Your dentist at Anderton Family Dental will cut through the gum tissue, uncovering the jawbone before carefully drilling a hole where your implant will be screwed. The gum will then be replaced and stitched back in its position. Once the bone and the gum are healed after 6 to 12 weeks, your dentist will attach an abutment (a connector post) to the post that will firmly hold your new tooth. The whole process could take about 3 to 6 months and the recovery time could take anywhere from 2 to 3 months.

The two types of procedure are single-stage implants and two-stage implants and the different types of dental implants are:

  • Endosteal
  • Subperiosteal
  • Transosteal


At Anderton Family Dental, we assure that dental implants can improve your health and your lifestyle! Here are some of the benefits of dental implants:

  • Oral health improvement
  • Well aligned bite
  • Improved speech
  • Long-lasting effects
  • Better functionality
  • Strengthened jawbone


The cost of dental implants varies depending on numerous factors. It can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $7,000. It is not typically covered by dental health insurance providers but it may be covered by your medical insurance plan, depending on the cause of your dental condition and the coverage plan.

    Dear Anderton Family Dental Patients,

    I know that you all are thinking about safety during the current coronavirus spread. I am writing today not to alarm you, but to put you more at ease in knowing the steps we are taking at Anderton Family Dental to keep you safe and healthy. The virus is likely to cause only mild symptoms in most of us, but it is crucial that we all do our part in preventing its spread.

    CLEANING AT “Anderton Family Dental“:

    We have obtained a list of disinfectants the PA has approved that can kill COVID-19 and we will be using those to clean rooms in between patients. We will be thorough in cleaning the rooms between each patient using these disinfectants to reduce the risk of exposure. Also, following strict sterilization practices and disposable items for your safety and health. We use room filtration/infrared cleaners for air purification. Practitioners and staff will be checking themselves for fever or symptoms and will take time away from the clinic as warranted.

    VISITING “Anderton Family Dental“:

    Please wear a mask when not in the dental chair. Please wash your hands upon arrival. We will have hand sanitizer at the entry or you can use the athroom sink to wash with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.

    Please stay home if you have a dry cough, shortness of breath or have had a fever in the past 14 days. Inform your doctor of your symptoms.


    Maintain healthy lifestyle habits. Sleep deprivation, stress, excess alcohol or caffeine all decrease immune function. Set yourself up for success with good self-care. Nourish your body with healthy whole foods and drink plenty of fluids.

    Consider stocking up on healthful pantry items such as frozen veggies and berries, frozen meats, poultry and fish, bone broth, soup, nuts, seeds, canned beans, grains, and teas in case you need to spend an extended time at home.

    Thanks in advance for your understanding and patience as we navigate implementing best practices during this time. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. Be well and enjoy your day!

    RESPECTFULLY, Dr Anderton and Team
