What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are titanium posts designed to mimic the natural tooth root responsible for holding your natural tooth in place. Once a tooth is extracted, the tooth root comes out with it. Once the implant is placed inside of the jaw, it’s able to integrate with your existing bone tissue thanks to its biocompatible properties. After the implant has fully healed, we’ll be able to place a permanent restoration on top, completing your smile and providing your jawbone the stimulation it needs.
Benefits of Dental implants
When you want a tooth replacement that is truly stable and keeps your replacement tooth where it needs to be, it’s difficult to beat dental implants. Not only does the titanium post ensure that it remains stable while in use, bit it’s designed to last well over 30 years (and longer) when properly taken care of. Furthermore, while the restoration used to cover the implant is made from natural-looking materials, the implant itself will stimulate bone tissue, helping you maintain your overall facial structure. This is important for those who care about keeping a youthful appearance, despite losing a tooth.
Missing Single Tooth
When a single tooth is missing, a dental implant can be placed into the open socket, then be given several months to heal. This means, unlike with dental bridges, you will not have to modify existing teeth just to have the tooth replaced. We also make sure to use porcelain crowns to ensure the best esthetics possible.
Missing Multiple Teeth
If you are missing multiple teeth, either consecutively or on opposite sides of the mouth, a bridge or partial denture can be attached to a series of dental implants. Depending on the number of missing teeth, a bridge may require one to two implants, while a partial bridge will likely need three. However, this will depend on the number of teeth that are missing and your current bone structure.
Missing All Teeth
When an entire arch of teeth are missing, either on the top or bottom portion of your mouth, a series of dental implants (anywhere between 6 and 8 in most cases) can be placed along the jaw and act as a foundation for an implant-retained denture. Depending on your needs, this denture can be made to be fixed or removable.
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Before any phase of treatment can begin, we’ll need to perform a detailed examination of your mouth and bone structure in order to confirm if you can receive dental implants safely. Additionally, if you require treatment for implants to become viable, such as gum therapy or bone grafting, our dental office will make sure you receive these treatments before beginning any step of dental implant treatment. Following your exam, we’ll schedule you for implant surgery at a later date.
Partnered with Fairfield’s Best Specialists
You deserve the most comprehensive care possible when it comes to your dental implant treatment, which is precisely why we are making sure to partner you with some of Fairfield’s best dental implant specialists. These trusted professionals perform the surgical portion of your dental implant treatment and ensure that your case is 100% successful in every way possible. Once you leave their dental office, you’ll come back to Dr. Dine, who will perform routine exams of your implant to confirm it is healing as intended.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
No two dental implant treatments are alike, and that’s largely because your needs will likely differ from another patient’s procedure. For example, the number of teeth that need to be replaced and whether or not preparatory treatments (i.e. bone grafts, periodontal therapy, etc.) need to be performed can influence your total cost. However, it should be noted that despite having a higher upfront cost compared to bridges or dentures, dental implants offer far superior longevity and stability, making them more cost-effective overall in the long-term.
