Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer a wide range of benefits that cannot be achieved with any other type of restoration, such as:
- Improved smile aesthetics
- Greater confidence
- No way for your implants to decay
- An easy to clean restoration
- A restoration that can last 30+ years with proper care
- Improved functionality when eating, chewing, and speaking
- Enhanced stability because of surgical placement
- Improved oral health because of continued jawbone stimulation
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants offer great versatility when treating patients with missing teeth. You can have them placed whether you’ve lost one, multiple, or all your teeth.
Missing a Single Tooth
A single tooth implant requires a titanium post, metal abutment, and customized dental restoration that sits on top of the implant. No healthy teeth are altered because the implant is placed into the exact socket of the missing tooth, allowing the implant to stimulate the jawbone and restore the entire tooth structure from the root up.
Missing Multiple Teeth
An implant bridge can be created to bridge the gap in your smile. When one or more consecutive teeth are missing in a row, we can place two implants into your jawbone before placing a customized bridge on top of the implants, allowing your oral health to improve and overall aesthetic to be complete.
Missing All Teeth
If you think dentures are the only way to replace all your teeth, guess again. We can provide an implant-retained denture that looks and feels just like your regular teeth only you won’t need to worry about buying dental adhesive to keep it in place. With 4 or 6 implants, you can enjoy a fully functional, more stable smile for years to come.
Partnering with Local Specialists for Implant Placement
Once it’s been determined that you’re a good candidate for implants, the first step of the process will be their surgical placement within the jawbone. Dr. Glamm and Dr. Walker can recommend you to a trusted nearby specialist for this portion of your care. Then, once your mouth has had enough time to properly heal from the procedure, you’ll return to Pearl Dentistry so that we can design and place brand-new, customized restorations. If you’re having individual implants placed, we use single crowns that our in-office technician crafts from high-quality porcelain and ceramic materials.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
It is no secret that dental implants are more costly than their restorative counterparts, but they possess great cost-effectiveness because of their longevity. While many people must go every 5-8 years to have their dentures replaced, the actual implant can last a lifetime.
During your initial consultation, we will go over the cost estimate of your treatment, so you can begin to determine how best to pay for your procedure. It is unlikely that your dental insurance will pay for the placement, but you may be surprised by other aspects that may be covered, including:
All of these, as well as the location of your implants and the number you will need, will be considered when formulating your individual estimate.
