What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a permanent new root for a missing tooth. It is a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone. An abutment and crown are then placed on the implant to provide a new tooth that is permanent and looks just like a natural tooth.
Instead of the most commonly used titanium implant, you can also choose to have a “metal free” implant (white implant inserted. Place ask about metal free implant during your consultation visit and we will address your questions and concerns.
How Are Dental Implants Different Than Dentures?
Dentures are a removable set of teeth or partial set of teeth that need to be removed and cared for in a special manner. They can often feel bulky and are difficult to get used to. Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth that can be cared for just like natural teeth.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants look and feel just like real teeth, they are permanent, you can eat the foods you want without any fear of embarrassment. Implant surgery, as a final alternative to replacing natural teeth, have proven to be a long lasting option and a satisfactory replacement treatment modality. - end of paragraph
How Much Do Implants Cost?
Dental implants could be placed fairly easily in cases that are straightforward and require minimal surgery. Some cases, on the other hands could be more complexes and require more preparations to build the reconstruction or design of your smile. Several factors will determine and lead to the exact cost of your treatment (number of implants needed, secondary procedures needed in conjunction to the actual implants needed etc…)
Only after a full preliminary evaluation can the Doctor come up with a plan tailored to your case. For those reasons, we advise that you schedule your consultation appointment so we may evaluate your case and discuss options that pertain to your needs.
