If you are missing teeth for any reason, we may have a solution for you. Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement for some patients.
What is the implant process?
The first step in the implant process is to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for teeth implants. This involves a comprehensive exam as well as taking detailed images of your mouth. We also need an evaluation of your overall health because the process includes oral surgery. We use this information to plan the placement and restoration of your teeth implants.
If you are a good candidate for teeth implants, the next step in the process is called placement. We will place rods into your jawbone. These rods will serve as supports for the replacement teeth that will be restored at a later visit. Your jawbone will heal around those rods in a process called osseointegration. This further strengthens the implant.
After osseointegration, the next step is restoration. This step is when we attach your dental implants to the rods we placed earlier in the process. The dental implants are designed to blend in with the rest of your teeth to restore your unique smile.
Although there are several steps to implant dentistry, we make the process simpler because we can perform all of these tasks in our office. From the exam to restoration, we are ready to give you the beautiful smile you desire as conveniently as possible.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
There are a number of benefits to choosing dental implants to replace missing teeth.
- Strength. The osseointegration process means that your implants are as secure and functional as the rest of your teeth.
- Secure. You will not have problems with slipping or clicking, like you may experience with other teeth replacement options.
- Multi-purpose. Dental implants can also support dentures for a more secure fit.
With these benefits, dental implants may be the answer to your missing teeth.
How much do dental implants cost?
The process of implant dentistry can be expensive initially, especially when compared to other tooth replacement options. An advantage to choosing dental implants is that they generally require no additional maintenance, other than good oral hygiene and regular cleanings. Over time, your dental implants prove more cost effective than other options for tooth replacement.
