What Are Dental Implants?

The Ideal Candidate for Dental Implants

Why Choose Dental Implants?

  • High Success Rate: According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, implants boast a 97% success rate.
  • Jawbone Preservation: Unlike traditional bridges and dentures, implants help preserve the jawbone, maintaining its strength and integrity.
  • No Damage to Adjacent Teeth: Implants function independently, protecting surrounding natural teeth.
  • Eating with Ease: Enjoy your favorite foods without worry, thanks to the stability of implants.

The Dental Implant Process: A Journey to a New Smile

Surgical Placement

The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone or attached to a metal frame under the gums. Some patients may require metal posts for tooth attachment.

Healing and Integration

After surgery, a period of healing allows the implant to anchor securely and the bone tissue to integrate with the device.

Final Restoration

Once healed, your artificial tooth, bridge, or denture is attached to the implant or post, completing your smile restoration.

Frequently asked questions

What is the success rate of dental implants?

Dental implants have a high success rate, typically around 95-98%, making them a reliable option for tooth replacement.

What are the benefits of dental implants over other tooth replacement options?

Dental implants offer several advantages:

  • Natural Look and Feel: They mimic the appearance and function of natural teeth.
  • Durability: Implants are robust and long-lasting.
  • Jawbone Preservation: They stimulate the bone, preventing deterioration.
  • Improved Oral Health: Unlike bridges, implants don't require altering adjacent teeth.

Can anyone get dental implants?

Most adults with good general health and sufficient jawbone density are candidates for dental implants. However, certain medical conditions may affect eligibility, which is determined during the initial consultation.

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining implants.

Are dental implants painful?

Patients may experience discomfort during the healing process. However, pain can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication, and the surgical procedure itself is performed under anesthesia.

How long does it take to heal from implant surgery?

The healing time can vary but typically ranges from 3 to 6 months. This period allows for the integration of the implant with the jawbone.

What financing options are available for dental implants?

Many dental practices offer financing options, including payment plans and third-party financing like CareCredit. These options can help make implants more affordable for patients.

Does dental insurance cover implants?

Coverage for dental implants varies by insurance plan. Some plans may cover a portion of the costs, while others may not. It's advisable to check with your insurance provider for specific coverage details.

How is the dental implant procedure performed?

The procedure involves several steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: Assessment of oral health and jawbone density.
  2. Implant Placement: A titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone.
  3. Healing Process: The implant integrates with the bone, a process known as osseointegration.
  4. Abutment Placement: After healing, an abutment is attached to hold the crown.
  5. Crown Placement: Finally, a custom-made crown is attached to the abutment.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are permanent fixtures surgically placed in the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post (acting as the tooth root) and a crown that mimics the appearance of a natural tooth.
