State-of-the-Art Dental Implant Technology
Are you missing teeth? Perhaps you wear dentures or a bridge and neither are completely satisfying? If you want to experience the ultimate in dental technology and restore your bite and smile, it’s time to look into dental implants.
Dental implants can replace a single missing or broken tooth, as well as multiple teeth. They restore aesthetics and function to your mouth and look and feel like natural teeth. They also allow you to chew all the foods that give you trouble with dentures or missing teeth.
Dental implants are durable, corrosion-resistant titanium screws that are surgically positioned into the jawbone. Over time, the jaw bone hardens around the implant and keeps it in place. Once this happens, your dentist mounts replacement teeth on top. This multi-step process lasts anywhere between six and nine months.
The initial procedure of placing the titanium screw into position typically takes about two hours while a patient is sedated or under anesthesia. The healing process lasts about six months and includes regular monitoring to assess healing progress. Once the implant has healed, a permanent crown is fitted and placed.
You’re probably asking yourself how much do dental implants cost? Dental implants cost varies from patient to patient and depends on the extent of treatment required. The price of dental implants tends to be a barrier for patients. While it’s true they can be expensive, the investment is well worth it. Not only do they last a long time, but feel significantly more natural than bridges or dentures.
To be eligible for dental implants, your gums must be in good health. Bone tissue must also be strong enough to support the implant. Once the implants are in place, patients must commit to keeping them healthy. To ensure long-term success of the implants, we recommend meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, nothing rivals dental implants for restoring your natural and dazzling smile. Not only that, dental implants restore youthfulness. With missing teeth, jawbone tissue tends to shrink. This, in turn, causes skin shrinkage and an aging effect on your complexion. By providing root structure to your jawbone, dental implants can actually revitalize your appearance.
