What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root installed in the gums and connected to the jawbone for a natural look that is more functional. A single tooth or multiple teeth can be replaced with dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Implants
With a 97 percent success rate, dental implants are a viable option to restore tooth loss that has occurred in an advanced treatment that is increasing in popularity. Other benefits include the following:
- Restore lost function
- Improve the appearance of your smile
- Prevent further loss of bone
- Support dentures
- Provide long-term results
What Is the Procedure for Dental Implants?
Installing dental implants is a two-part procedure that involves creating a bone graft if bone loss has occurred over the years to ensure that the implant is properly fitted. Anesthesia will be provided before the procedure.
After the surgery is completed, a temporary tooth replacement may be provided as the implant fuses to the bone that is present. This can take several months to complete. The final crown is then attached directly to the implant or onto an abutment.
Preparing for Dental Implants
Before having dental implants installed, it’s important to inform your dentist of any medications that you take or medical conditions that you currently suffer from. You’ll have a comprehensive dental exam, and a treatment plan will then be determined, which may involve a number of dental specialists.
Patients are expected to maintain oral hygiene with the implants, as it will require the same amount of care as natural teeth.
- Swelling of the gums and face may occur with minor discomfort involved.
- It will take approximately six months for the healing process to be completed with minor bleeding that may occur when brushing the implant.
- Follow-up procedures will also be scheduled to monitor the implants and how well they are functioning.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Dental implants vary in cost depending on the patient’s needs. Summit Dental Center™ accepts cash, major credit cards, government assistance, and dental insurance. Financing and payment plans are also available.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
Ideal candidates for dental implants are individuals who have healthy gums and do not suffer from periodontal disease. Make sure you let your dentist know if you have osteoporosis, you are not a good candidate for this procedure.
