Indications for Dental Implants

As one of the most versatile methods of tooth replacement available, dental implants can replace one, multiple, or all your teeth.

Missing One Tooth

One single dental implant is surgically placed into your jawbone, filling in the vacated socket before a custom-made dental crown is created and secured to the top of your implant.

Missing Multiple Teeth

If two or more consecutive teeth are missing along a row, we can place two dental implants into the outer sockets before creating a dental bridge, which consists of multiple fused dental crowns. Once your implants are firmly in place, we can secure the bridge to the tops of your implants, allowing us to fill in the gap.

Missing All Teeth

Using between four and six dental implants, we can create a solid foundation for your customized denture. When ready, we will anchor the prosthetic to your implants, effectively restoring your upper or lower arch.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

When it comes to receiving dental implants, there’s no set price. The reason for this is that every patient is different, so various factors must be considered before a proper cost estimate is provided. During your initial consultation, we will go over all the necessary details that will be incorporated into your procedure. From any pre-implant dental work to sedation/anesthesia to the final design of your custom crown, bridge, or denture, we will use these contributing factors as well as many others to determine how much you can expect to pay for your new smile.

We will be happy to work on your behalf with your insurance company, if you prefer, to find out if you are eligible for coverage. No matter their decision, we can provide additional information regarding alternative payment methods to help you stay within your budget and get the dental care you need.

We always take the time to address your most commonly asked questions and encourage you to read on. Check below to see if your question has already been answered for yourself!

Are Dental Implants Safe?

We can confidently say thanks to many decades of research and clinical results that yes, dental implants are safe. In fact, they hold an impressive 95% success rate on average. In order to ensure your dental implant treatment is safe, we make sure to complete a thorough dental exam beforehand. We’ll also confirm that you have enough bone density to receive an implant as well as healthy gums. If you aren’t able to meet these requirements, we will suggest either a bone graft or periodontal therapy first. This enables you to receive a safe and predictable tooth replacement.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Designed as a long-term solution for missing teeth, dental implants are able to remain healthy in the jaw for at least 30 years and longer! With that said, you’ll still need to take care of them to ensure they stay healthy, just like a natural tooth. As a major investment, you’ll need to practice daily oral care and maintain routine dental checkups. The more you take care of them, the more they’ll make smiling, chewing, eating, and speaking easy and enjoyable. With preventive care, you can avoid problems like implant failure, which can be caused by unremoved plaque and gum disease, just like a real tooth.

Does the Dental Implant Procedure Hurt?

We often hear this question at the practice, and we understand why. Thankfully, those who have undergone the procedure appreciate how far we go to make the treatment as pain-free as possible. For example, we’ll make sure to provide you with a local anesthetic ahead of your procedure as well as other aftercare instructions to keep you healthy as your implant heals. Instead of worrying about feeling uncomfortable, you can start focusing on recovering and thinking about your new smile!

Do Dental Implants Look Natural?

For years, tooth replacements have been effective, but not perfect. For one, they were often noticeable and even obtrusive throughout the day. We understand if you feel hesitant about treatment, especially if you’re someone who wants to move on from wearing a denture. The good news is dental implants are made from natural-looking dental porcelain that’s customized to fit inside your mouth exactly. This results in a smile that is as functional as it is flawless.
