What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a two-part restoration that replaces a missing tooth. This titanium post is placed into the bone of the jaw to act as the foundation, and above the gumline lies the abutment of the implant. The abutment can be restored with bridges, dentures, or crowns, depending on the patient’s unique needs.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants have several advantages. They are known for lasting a lifetime with proper care, and provide the best in stability and strength. Missing teeth replaced with dental implants look and feel like natural teeth.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
The best candidate for the placement of dental implants are patients with sufficient jawbone structure to ensure successful surgery. If there is not enough bone, the implant will fail, and alternative solutions may need to be considered. For patients who are serious about obtaining dental implants in the future, bone grafting can be discussed to build up the jawbone and ensure success later on.
How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient. Factors such as how many dental implants, the type of restoration needed over the dental implant, and the patient’s dental insurance benefits will all play a part in determining the final cost of dental implants for an individual.
