Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants serve as replacements for missing tooth roots and thus serve as a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. This revolutionary tooth replacement system has enabled millions of people all over the world to enjoy normal function and an attractive smile. After years of research and clinical trials, this option is not only offered with confidence but in most cases, is the ideal means for structural support of tooth replacement.
Furthermore, dental implants are considered to be the most durable tooth replacement option available today, largely due to their integration with the existing bone and soft tissue. On average, they last between 25 years and a lifetime when properly maintained. There’s no worry of your implant shifting or slipping out of place, which is a very common issue with dentures. Because dental implants continuously stimulate the existing bone, they are the only tooth replacement solution that feels nearly identical to natural teeth.
Surgical Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants can be used to provide support for the replacement of one, several or all teeth. While the implant surgery takes place in our dental office, the implant-supported replacement teeth are created by your restorative/general dentist and then are attached to the dental implants. As part of your treatment, we carefully plan the placement of each implant to ensure the most successful outcome and integration possible. Detailed planning also helps us avoid vulnerable structures during placement, including sensitive nerves in the jaw.
Indications for Dental Implants
There are many potential applications for dental implants. Those who are missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire arch of teeth can benefit from their use. Learn how you can get started today!
Missing One Tooth
To replace a single tooth, one titanium implant is placed directly into the jaw, allowing it to integrate with your existing alveolar bone. If needed, we can also perform a bone graft to expand bone volume. We use titanium because of its durability and bio-compatible properties.
Missing Multiple Teeth
To replace multiple teeth at a time, a pair of dental implants can be placed inside the jaw in order to anchor a larger bridge. Traditionally, existing teeth would need to be modified to hold this type of restoration. In contrast, dental implants are strong enough to hold a three- or four-crown bridge.
Missing All Of Your Teeth
If you’re used to wearing a full or partial denture but tired of having it slip out of place on a regular basis, implant-retained dentures can effectively restore all of your missing teeth and improve stability. Strategic placement of four to six implants throughout the jaw can allow either a fixed or partial denture to snap in place, regardless of which arch you intend to address.
All-on-4/Teeth in a Day
A revolutionary treatment for those with extensive tooth loss, All-on-4 is an effective solution to replace several teeth on the same day as your implant surgery. Once the implants are placed, the denture is also attached while the implants integrate with your bone and soft tissue.
Mini Dental implants
Unlike traditional dental implants, which measure between 4 to 5 mm in diameter, mini dental implants measure as short as 2.5 mm in diameter. This implant does not require extensive surgery to place and is more ideal for teeth missing in the more visible areas of your smile.
If you’ve been missing teeth for a long time, there’s a very real possibility that your existing bone tissue has deteriorated over the years, making it more difficult for implants to integrate with your jaw. Bone grafts take either existing bone from your body or donated bone and integrate with your jaw to expand the overall volume and size of your socket, making implant treatment viable.
Partners with Your Dentist
At North Metro Oral & Implant Surgery, we work directly with your dentist to confirm that all of your needs are met and that every step of your implant treatment is taken into consideration. By partnering with your dentist, we can guarantee that the surgery we perform coincides with the restorations that will eventually make up your brand-new smile. We streamline the process, ensuring that you’re getting the best price for your treatment and having the most comfortable experience possible.
The Cost of Dental Implants
When determining the cost of your treatment, it’s important to keep in mind that your needs are largely going to differ from other patients. For example, needing one implant placed is going to be much cheaper than needing multiple in order to anchor a more complex restoration. Furthermore, those in need of preparatory treatments to receive dental implants, including bone grafts, sinus lifts or stronger forms of sedation, will need to pay more.
With that said, dental implants are largely cost-effective compared to bridges and dentures because of their longevity and low maintenance. Bridges do not last as long as dental implants and dentures require daily maintenance and routine repair and replacement. These costs can quickly add up, forcing you to pay more compared to dental implants in the long-term. Dental implants are considered an investment that you can rely on for many years to come, not constantly worry about after you’ve received them.
