What Are Dental Implants?

As the only tooth replacement solution that is capable of replacing teeth in their entirety (root to crown), dental implants are titanium posts that offer continuous jawbone stimulation. Alleviating the concern of facial changes and additional tooth loss, these prosthetics support all types of restorations, no matter how many teeth are missing. Their biocompatible material makes them ideal for fusing with bone tissues, and their long lifespan can have you enjoying your newer smile for decades.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  • Initial Consultation: You will meet with a member of our team to discuss how we plan to outfit you with dental implants. If your oral and overall health are in good shape as well as your jawbone, we’ll recommend you move on to implant surgery. However, if we find any signs of decay, gum disease, or jawbone resorption, you’ll be required to complete preliminary treatments before receiving dental implants.
  • Dental Implant Surgery: You will have each implant positioned in its desired location so that it fuses properly and creates a firm foundation for your new restoration.
  • Osseointegration/Abutments: You will spend 4-6 months allowing your implant posts to fuse with the jawbone. This will require that you follow detailed instructions from our dental team. Once you are fully healed, you will receive your metal abutments (connector pieces) that attach and hold your restoration in place on top of your implants.
  • Delivery of Final Restoration: No matter if you are to receive a crown, bridge, or denture, your final restoration will be properly fitted and polished once in place.

Benefits of Dental Implants

As you consider your options for tooth replacement, you will find that the benefits of dental implants cannot be matched by any other restorative solution. The following advantages are just a few of the many reasons so many Americans are already living with and enjoying their new, permanent smiles:

  • Dental implants help to create more vibrant and youthful appearances because of the continuous stimulation that is delivered to the jawbone.
  • These biocompatible prosthetics easily fuse with the jawbone, creating a solid foundation of support for your new smile, thus eliminating the fear of accidental slippage while eating or speaking.
  • Dental implants make it easy to eat the foods you love, especially those that are nutrient-rich and benefit both your smile and your body.
  • They are easy to maintain, requiring no special products.
  • They are known to last longer than dental bridges or dentures (decades versus years) because of their permanent placement.
  • Dental implants are much more cost-effective in the long run as opposed to the money spent on denture adhesives, replacements, and adjustments for dentures and dental bridges.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

If you are an adult with missing teeth, there is a good chance you’ll be able to move forward with dental implants. However, there is a determination as to whether you can have them placed immediately or if you must wait. If you have oral health problems (i.e., tooth decay, gum disease) or jawbone resorption, prior treatment will be required. Also, if you are living with diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, or any other similar disorder, you’ll need to make sure you are managing your condition well.

During your consultation, you can expect that we will discuss the versatility of these prosthetics, as they are capable of restoring tooth loss of all kinds.

Missing One Tooth

When only one tooth is missing, we will use a single dental implant to fill the space. A metal abutment will be used to attach the dental crown to the implant post so that it blends beautifully with your smile and allows you to embrace a complete appearance that looks and feels natural.

Missing Multiple Teeth

For an arch that has two or more missing consecutive teeth, we can forgo a traditional bridge and instead, leave your healthy teeth alone. By using two dental implant posts in the outer sockets, it can support a custom-made bridge that will be secured on top. This will allow your remaining teeth to remain untouched, and you’ll be free to eat and speak with ease again.

Missing All of Your Teeth

Traditional dentures may be able to replace an entire arch of missing teeth but only if it uses natural suction and denture adhesive. With 4-6 implant posts, though, you can avoid messy materials and instead, feel confident that your new denture won’t accidentally slip out of place. Once positioned on top of the implant posts, your new teeth will function like normal and look just like a natural, healthy smile.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Many patients assume that the cost of dental implants is out of reach. Although they are more expensive upfront than traditional dentures or dental bridges, they are more cost-effective in the long run because of their longevity. Our team will be happy to go over your dental insurance plan to determine which benefits can be used to help you save on your new smile.
