What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant isn’t a prosthetic tooth, but rather a new tooth root that consists of a tiny titanium post. This is positioned within the jawbone where a natural tooth used to be, and once there, the surrounding bone starts to bond with it through a process called osseointegration. This is what gives implants their unmatched strength. Once they are ready, these posts can be attached to crowns, bridges, or dentures depending on the needs of the patient.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  • Consultation: You’ll sit down with your dentist to discuss your tooth replacement options and determine whether dental implants are the best choice for you.
  • Placement Surgery: The implant posts will be placed in your jawbone below the gum line using a minor surgery. In many cases, we can perform this part of the procedure in-house.
  • Healing/Osseointegration: Over the next three to six months, your mouth will heal while your implants attach themselves to your jawbone just like real tooth roots.
  • The Big Day: When your mouth is ready, you’ll return to our office to have your new teeth connected to your implants. For cosmetic cases, we have an implant ceramist come to the office and work with patients to create custom-designed restorations.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Compared to traditional dentures and dental bridges, dental implants have several unique benefits:

  • New teeth never slip or slide
  • Enable a patient to eat whatever they like
  • Very natural-looking with no clasps or attachments needed
  • Stimulate the jaw to prevent ongoing bone loss
  • Support the skin of the lips and cheeks to create a younger appearance
  • Can last for 30+ years with minimal maintenance

Who Dental Implants Can Help

We can use dental implants to help patients dealing with any degree of tooth loss, from a single gap to those who have no natural teeth left and everything in between. The treatment is flexible enough that we can tailor it to your situation in the following ways as needed.

Missing One Tooth

A custom-made crown is supported by an implant that is placed among healthy teeth. Unlike a bridge, this new tooth won’t require the nearby teeth to be reshaped at all, preserving your existing enamel.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Both dental bridges and partial dentures can be anchored in place using a small number of implants to restore a few or even several teeth at once.

Missing All of Your Teeth

Rather than just having a full denture sit on top of the gums, we can secure it with just four to six implants. This makes it much more stable and also helps the prosthetic maintain its initial fit for years to come because it fortifies the jawbone.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Because the individual steps of the dental implant treatment can vary from patient to patient depending on their situation, the cost of the procedure can differ as well. While implants are a bigger investment at first compared to other options, their benefits are well worth it (just ask anyone with implants!), plus their longevity actually helps patients save money over time because they don’t have to pay for replacements or maintenance like with other treatments.
