What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a screw-like object that can be inserted into the jawbone. Once it becomes part of the bone tissue through a process called osseointegration, it can fulfil the role of a tooth root, supplying the bone with necessary stimulation and keeping the restoration anchored in place. Dental implants are traditionally made out of titanium, but ceramic and zirconia can also be used; we can go over the pros and cons of each type of implant during your consultation.
The 4-Step Dental Implant Process
- The first step is the initial dental implant consultation. We review your health and the state of your jawbone to make sure you’re a candidate for the procedure; we can then start putting together a treatment plan based on your needs.
- After bone grafts and other preliminary procedures (which are only performed as needed), we’ll schedule the dental implant surgery, which we can handle in-house.
- Following the surgery, it will take 3 to 6 months for osseointegration to complete itself. Another minor surgery is performed to attach an abutment.
- The final step is to take impressions of your mouth with the implant(s) and abutment(s) in place, then design a restoration that will eventually be fixed to the post(s).
Benefits of Dental Implants
Did you lose your teeth due to trauma, decay, or gum disease? Dr. Yana Nemtseva has a secure and aesthetic way to replace them with dental implants. A dental implant is a natural-looking artificial single tooth or several teeth that are placed in the jawbone. The benefits of dental implants are numerous:
- Esthetics, of course, is the number one reason patients will opt for an implant. Nobody wants to have gaps and spaces in the mouth. If you miss teeth for a period of time your cheeks and lips will fall in, and the face will look asymmetrical. Dental implants will restore facial symmetry.
- With implants, your chewing ability will improve significantly.
- Dental implants will not alter your ability to taste food.
- Implants are the most conservative option out of all available alternatives for the replacement of missing teeth. With implants, adjacent teeth remain unaltered and do not require any grinding.
- Implants will prevent other teeth from shifting.
- Implants maintain the existing bone structure.
- Dental implants do not decay and with proper care might last longer than your natural teeth.
- If you have loose dentures, implants will dramatically increase the stability of the existing prosthesis and improve your ability to speak and chew.
- Dental implants are much stronger and more stable than other alternatives
With a high success rate of 95%, dental implants became a preferred treatment of choice for the majority of patients. Please call Cambridge Square Dental to schedule your free dental implant consultation with Dr. Yana Nemtseva.
Who Dental Implants Can Help
To be a candidate for dental implants, you need enough bone tissue in your jaw to join with and support the implant posts. You also need to be healthy enough to undergo the surgery, and you can’t have gum disease or any other condition that could lead to implant failure. We can discuss steps you can take to overcome potential obstacles to getting dental implants during your first consultation. Then we can plan your implant procedure based on how many teeth are missing:
Missing Single Tooth
Instead of filing down two healthy teeth for a dental bridge, we can insert a dental implant into the gap in your smile, then attach a crown to it to act as your new tooth. The crown will be made out of durable tooth-colored materials that allow your new restoration to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Dental implants can be used to replace any number of teeth. We just need to determine the number of implant posts and the type of restoration that can be used to fill in the empty space in the most efficient, cost-effective way. For example, a dental bridge anchored to a pair of implants can be used to replace three or more consecutive missing teeth.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
The final cost of dental implants depends on different factors (such as the number of posts or the need for preliminary treatments) that we can discuss with you at your first consultation. For many patients, they are actually the best financial choice. Not only do they offer advantages that traditional dentures and bridges can’t provide, but they can also last for the rest of your life with good maintenance, while other tooth replacements would have to be redone every 7 to 10 years.
