DENTAL IMPLANTS EXPLAINED

Dental implants are a durable, natural looking solution to the loss of a tooth. Implants connect directly to the jaw bone, intending to mirror the bond between the tooth and the root using titanium. This bond makes implants a long-lasting solution to tooth loss, because it does not rely on anchoring to adjacent teeth. If you have lost a back tooth, it may not be a top priority to provide a replacement. No one can see it, and you are able to adjust your chewing to accommodate the loss of the tooth. However, over time, the bone beneath the surface of the tooth begins to deteriorate, which is what gives people with significant tooth loss a “caved in” appearance around their jaw line. Upon the deterioration of that bone, other teeth can begin to shift, causing significant damage to the infrastructure of your mouth, as well as the appearance and health of your smile. Even if a lost tooth is initially unnoticeable, the damage can become a much bigger problem as time goes on. Dr. Imm is trained in a revolutionary new way of completing dental implants, making it possible to complete the implant in just one visit! The technique is customized to each patient, giving them the most comfortable and efficient experience possible to restore their smile.

WHO IS IMPLANT DENTISTRY FOR?

Anyone who has experienced tooth damage or loss and has otherwise good dental health is a great candidate for dental implants. As dental implants fuse with the gum and jaw bone over time, those who have healthy gums and jawbones are the most ideal candidates who experience the best healing and outcomes. Tooth loss may seem like a problem mostly found in the elderly or athletes in sports with heavy bodily contact! However, according to dental statistics, 70% of adults ages 35-44 have lost at least one tooth to gum disease, an injury, a bad root canal, or tooth decay. If you have questions about whether you might be a good candidate for dental implants or our other cosmetic dentistry services such as dentures or dental bridges, contact our team today to start working towards a smile you’ll love.

HOW MUCH DO DENTAL IMPLANTS COST?

Dental implants will vary in cost depending on the extent of the damage that needs to be repaired, the number of teeth needing to be replaced, and the overall health of the patient’s mouth. Single dental implants can range from $1,000 to $2,000, depending on the procedure required and the type of implant being used. Other services required in addition to the implants, can cost more. Dental implants are often partially covered by many dental insurance policies, although the amount can vary depending on coverage and the patient’s situation. All Smiles Care also offers flexible payment options in order to make dental implant services as affordable and accessible as possible. After all, it’s hard to put a price on having a smile that makes you feel confident.

DENTAL IMPLANTS VS DENTURES

While many may choose dentures or bridges over dental implants, dental implants are considered the most effective and durable solution. Why? Dental bridges generally need to be replaced within ten years. Even dentures need to be replaced every five to eight years. In contrast, dental implants can last for decades with meticulous home care and routine visits to the dentist’s office. In addition to regular exams, a thorough cleaning and inspection should take place at least twice a year in the office.

Why Dental Implants?

Missing teeth can result in daily inconveniences. You may find it difficult to eat and talk. It may even make you conscious of your smile. With all these hurdles considered, cosmetic problems can actually affect your oral health.

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are a popular solution for missing teeth, closest in appearance and functionality to the real thing. A dental implant procedure involves having a hole drilled into the jaw bone at the site of a missing tooth. A titanium post is then inserted into the bone. Over the course of three to six months, the jaw bone will bond to the post during the healing process.

Dental Implant Types

While there are several options for dealing with gaps in your mouth due to a lost tooth, dental implants offer one of the most promising alternatives. There are different types of dental implants in Westminster, providing you with the flexibility to choose the best tooth replacement solution for your problem.

Dental Implant FAQ's

What’s the difference between dentures, bridges, and dental implants?

Dentures involve having a complete or partial set of artificial teeth. They are generally the last resort when there has been extensive tooth loss. A bridge will fill the gap for one tooth or several adjacent teeth. Caps are placed on neighboring teeth and a false tooth is held in place. In many cases, the bridge can cause discomfort, irritating the gums. Dental implants involve the insertion of a titanium post into the jaw bone. Once healing has occurred and the bone grafts to the post, an artificial tooth, or crown, is attached to the post. This is a good solution when you only need to replace one or a few teeth. Dental implants have also been found to be helpful in securing dentures, making them more comfortable for patients.

Are dental implants removable and do they look natural?

They are made of a durable material that is as effective as a healthy tooth. We will carefully match the color of your crown to your other teeth, taking a mold of your teeth in order to create a good match.

How long is the process to get dental implants?

After the root replacement is inserted, it will take three months for it to bond with the bone. During that time a secure replacement tooth will be made for you to wear until the final teeth are made. The total process can range from three to six months. Throughout the process you will always have a secure replacement tooth.

What are the risks associated with getting dental implants?

As with any type of surgery, there are potential risks. However, patients rarely experience problems. Possible risks include infection, nerve damage, damage to neighboring teeth or gum tissue, and sinus problems. Individuals with underlying health conditions may experience complications and should discuss their particular situation with their dentist.

How long do dental implants last and how do I care for them?

Dental implants can last a lifetime if they are well-cared for. Care for dental implants is the same as for the rest of your teeth. You should always maintain an excellent oral hygiene regimen. Visit the dentist regularly and make sure your implants are carefully evaluated. If you keep your mouth healthy, you should have your implants for the duration.

What is the best age for dental implants?

While everyone’s teeth grow at different rates and times in their life, most experts recommend waiting until after a patient turns 18 and ideally waiting until the age of 25 to 30 before considering dental implants. Because implants are a large investment, it’s best to wait until they have the optimal chance for success.
