What are Dental Implants?

Mimicking the roots of teeth, dental implants are made out of titanium because of how well they fuse with the jawbone. Over time, these prosthetics build a strong foundation that can support dental crowns, bridges, and dentures, allowing teeth to move as they should while also looking like natural components of your smile. To receive dental implants, the process requires multiple steps, and you can expect results in about 6 months.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  • Initial Dental Implant Consultation – To start, you’ll meet with a member of our team to discuss how we plan to proceed in helping you to receive dental implants. We’ll also check your oral and overall health as well as your jawbone density.
  • Dental Implant Surgery – Once you’re cleared for surgery, we’ll refer you to a local implant dentist who will carefully place each post.
  • Dental Implant Osseointegration/Abutment – After spending 3-6 months healing and allowing osseointegration to occur, which is the process of your implants fusing with the bone, you’ll return to have metal abutments put into place. These help your restoration to attach to your implant posts.
  • Delivery of Dental Implant Restoration(s) – The final step of implant placement is receiving your customized restoration. Depending on how many of your teeth you are missing, you’ll receive either a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Apart from the permanent method of treatment these prosthetics provide, you’ll be pleased to learn that countless benefits come with dental implants. Their ability to last a lifetime, their complete restoration of a tooth’s full root-to-crown structure, and their ability to allow you to eat all your favorite foods – these are just a few of the many advantages that come with choosing a permanent tooth replacement over one that is temporary and requires frequent replacement.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

If you are missing one or more teeth, there is a good chance that our team will have you enjoying life with dental implants. Even if we discover you are not ready for implant surgery right away, we can implement various treatment options to improve the status of your jawbone and oral and overall health. When ready, you can expect that we’ll go over the various ways these prosthetics can address your tooth loss.

Missing One Tooth

Using a titanium post, metal abutment, and customized dental crown, your single missing tooth can be easily replaced. Not only does this method of treatment allow your healthy teeth to remain untouched, but it also creates greater reassurance of knowing your smile is fully intact.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Two or more missing teeth can be replaced with the help of two titanium dental implant posts as well as metal abutments and a customized implant bridge. Fitting over the tops of the implant posts, your new teeth will work like normal while also giving you a complete and beautiful smile.

Missing All of Your Teeth

A customized implant denture can be created to fit over 4-6 titanium posts that are positioned along your jawbone. Delivering maximum support to your new teeth, you will be able to eat, speak, and smile without trouble, making it easier to perform normal daily tasks without worrying about your prosthetic falling out or slipping.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The estimated cost of dental implants is different for each person, as there are various factors our team must consider. While you may only be missing one tooth, another person may be missing an entire arch. Also, the status of your oral and overall health must be taken into consideration. Once we have all the information to create a plan, we’ll go over the details with you, including how much you can expect to incur out of pocket as well as how much insurance will pay.
