Dental Implants 101
A dental implant is a small, biocompatible titanium post that we place into your jawbone. It mimics a natural tooth root and fuses with your bone to create a stable foundation for a restoration (the part that looks like a tooth) to attach to. Depending on your needs, the restoration will either be a crown, bridge or denture.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- They look, feel & function similar to your natural teeth.
- Implants stimulate your jawbone and prevent bone loss.
- Your implants can last a lifetime if they’re properly cared for.
- Implants fill out your cheeks and lips, so they don’t appear sunken.
- They’re easy to maintain. You can eat, brush & floss like normal.
There are a variety of factors that we assess before moving forward with an implant procedure, such as:
Overall Oral Health:
Apart from missing teeth, candidates need to have great oral health to ensure the success and longevity of their implants.
Since dental implants and the restoration will be in constant contact with your gums, it’s crucial for candidates to have healthy, disease-free gums.
A strong jawbone is vital for holding the implants in place. However, if you suffer from bone loss, we may be able to get your jaw into implant-ready shape with a bone graft procedure.
Lifestyle & Budget:
Aside from health factors, your lifestyle, needs, and budget play an important part in the decision process.
While these are the factors we consider, we won’t know for sure if you’re a good candidate until we complete an exam and consultation.
Our skilled dentists gently place your implants into the jawbone, and most patients report little to no discomfort following their procedure. However, if you experience any sensitivity, discomfort, or swelling, we can prescribe you an anti-inflammatory medication or suggest an over-the-counter alternative for you to take during your recovery period.
The cost of dental implants depends on a multitude of factors, including your overall oral health, the number of implants you’re getting, your restoration, and more. After your implant consultation, we’ll be able to provide you with an accurate cost estimate based on your specific case. We’ll also go over your financial options and work with you to fit a full smile into your budget.
