What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are essentially designed to mimic teeth in every way possible. This includes not just the crown that fills the gap in your smile, but the root that sits underneath gum tissue. The post, which is made from titanium, is biocompatible with your jawbone. This means that your replacement tooth will integrate organically with your existing oral structures, ensuring a long-lasting restoration and functionality that you won’t get with other tooth replacement methods.
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are many benefits that come with dental implants that you won’t find with dentures or dental bridges. For one, the integration process ensures that you’ll be able to eat the foods you want without having to worry about your tooth shifting out of place or loosening. This is thanks to the solid bond between bone and titanium that occurs after the healing phase of treatment. Additionally, you can expect your implant to last between 25 years and a lifetime when properly maintained.
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
While many people are eligible for dental implants, it’s important to highlight that they can effectively address just about any level of tooth loss. Here’s how our office gets it done!
Missing Single Tooth
Replacing a single missing tooth requires just one titanium implant and one porcelain crown. These components are attached via an abutment, which ensures long-term stability and function.
Missing Multiple Teeth
To replace multiple missing teeth at a time, a pair of dental implants are placed and customized to hold an implant-retained bridge. This option does not require the removal of existing tooth enamel like traditional bridges do.
Missing All Teeth
If you’re in need of a comprehensive tooth replacement method that replaces your current partial or full denture, implant-retained dentures are the most ideal. In many cases, we do not need to have a dedicated implant for every tooth you intend to replace.
It’s common for dental offices to refer the surgical portion of dental implant treatment to other practices. At Lowes Island Dentistry, you don’t have to jump from office to office just to have your smile restored. In fact, Dr. Ansari performs the placement and restoration phase of treatment all under one roof! That means you don’t have to deal with the confusion or inconvenience of speaking with multiple doctors at a time.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Every dental implant treatment varies in cost because of the high level of customization that comes with it. The fact is if you need multiple teeth compared to just one tooth replaced or you need to have preparatory treatments completed just to begin treatment, these factors will influence your overall costs. We’ll always make sure that you’re aware of what your treatment costs will be before beginning the process. With that said, dental implants are typically considered the most cost-effective solution to tooth loss because of their impressive longevity.
