What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants provide solid anchor points for single artificial teeth, bridges, and crowns.
If implants are an option for you, we’ll evaluate your overall dental health and assess how much bone loss you have. Then we’ll determine whether an endosteal or subperiosteal implant is the best option for you.
- Endosteal implants: traditional implant inserted into the jaw that offers superior stability for artificial teeth and bridges
- Subperiosteal implants: implant for those with significant bone loss that rely on support from gum tissue. It’s slightly less stable than endosteal implants
We are committed to providing you with practical, positive solutions for your dental health needs. Together, we’ll determine the best implant option for you and your budget.
How Expensive Are Dental Implants?
The cost of dental implants is based on a variety of factors. Our goal is to get you the best dental implant for your needs within your budgetary limits.
If the cost of dental implants has prevented you from contacting a dentist, we invite you to contact us. We’ll review your options and, hopefully, find a way to improve your smile and your dental health for a cost you can afford. This includes payment plans and long-term support for your dental health.
What If I Have Dental Insurance?
Most dental insurance plans do not cover the cost of dental implants. We’ll review your policy and determine what, if any, of the cost is covered.
Dental Implant Procedure
The implant procedure is a multi-step process. This includes:
- Inserting the implant into your jaw or gums
- Giving it time to heal
- Attaching the appliance to the implant once it’s fully healed
That’s it. The process takes time, but it’s not really complicated. The hardest part is waiting for the implant to heal once it’s in place.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants give you a more attractive smile. Other benefits include:
- Easier dental hygiene
- Reduced expensive of long-term dental care
- Improved ability to speak and eat
- Improved self-confidence
Dental implants give you a solid bite, so you don’t need to worry about chewing or speaking. You’ll get to act just as you would with your natural teeth.
What are the Different Types of Dental Implants?
We’ll assess the overall condition of your oral health and number of missing teeth to determine the best dental implant option for you. Mini-implants are small and perfect for just a few missing teeth. If you have a lot of missing teeth, implant-supported bridges or more complex procedure, we’ll discuss the various options available to you.
Dental Implant Care Regimen
Following your procedure, you’ll receive detailed instructions on caring for your implant and preventing any damage to your jaw or gums. Once it’s fully healed, you’ll be able to brush and floss around your implant and artificial tooth as you would your natural teeth.
