Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants ?

Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. They are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material that fuses with the bone. This allows the implant to act like a natural tooth root, providing support for artificial teeth.

They can improve your chewing ability, speech, and appearance. If you’re missing teeth, talk to your oral surgeon about whether dental implants are right for you.


Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer several advantages over other forms of tooth replacement, such as dentures or bridges. They are more stable, comfortable, and durable. They also look and feel more natural than other forms of tooth replacement.

Here are some additional benefits of dental implants:

  • Stability:
    Dental implants are very stable, which means that they are less likely to move or become loose. This can give you peace of mind knowing that your teeth are secure.
  • Comfort:
    Dental implants are very comfortable to wear. They feel just like natural teeth, so you won't have to worry about any discomfort.
  • Durability:
    Dental implants are very durable, which means that they can last for many years. This is a great investment for your smile.
  • Natural appearance:
    Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. This means that you can be confident in your smile, knowing that it looks its best.

If you are considering dental implants, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Cost:
    Dental implants can be expensive, but the cost is worth it for the long-term benefits. Because everyone’s situation is different, you’ll need a consultation with an oral surgeon for an exact price.
  • Recovery time:
    There is some recovery time involved after dental implant surgery. However, the recovery time is usually short, and you will be able to return to your normal activities soon after the surgery.
  • Maintenance:
    Dental implants require regular maintenance, such as brushing and flossing. However, the maintenance requirements are no different than those for natural teeth.
  • If you are missing teeth, dental implants are a great option for replacing them. To learn more about dental implants, please contact our office today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants are not typically painful during the procedure. The oral surgeon will numb the area with local anesthesia, so you should not feel any pain during the surgery. However, you may experience some discomfort or soreness after the surgery. This is usually mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

The procedure for placing dental implants is typically performed in multiple stages. In the first stage, the implants are placed in the jawbone. After the jawbone heals and attaches to the metal implant, an abutment is attached to the implant when the post is implanted. Finally, artificial teeth are attached to the implants. The entire procedure usually takes several months to complete.

Dental Implant costs depend on a few factors. Your oral surgeon can give you a specific quote based on your individual situation after a comprehensive consultation. It’s important to know that dental insurance typically doesn’t cover the full cost, however some policies may cover part of the procedure. Check with your insurance company for more detailed information.
