What is a dental implant?
The dental implants we place are durable, functional, and very attractive. A dental implant is our most permanent dental replacement option. We create a new, stronger tooth root and secure it to the jawbone. After placement, the implant will not be visible until we place a crown that resembles other teeth over it.
Our implant rods consist of titanium, which is a lightweight metal that is fully compatible with bone tissues. The titanium implant will actually fuse with the jawbone structure through osseointegration. This process will provide an immovable and permanent replacement.
Can a dental implant work just like my natural tooth did?
Yes, the dental implant will work and look just like a natural tooth and will even feel like the natural tooth. Fortunately, a dental implant resists dental diseases as long as the jawbone does not have an infection. The dental implant will not be susceptible to decay and will never need a root canal. We will never need to replace the root of the implant. The crown of the implant (the visible part) will be incredibly durable and stain resistance. Patients need to be careful since too much pressure can damage the implant. Fortunately, we can easily switch out or replace the crown of the implant when necessary.
While the dental implant is strong, patients should not treat it like it is invincible. Patients still need to practice proper oral hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing. Patients should also visit our dentist office at least twice a year for checkups and professional cleanings.
Is a dental implant affordable?
Yes. For a permanent, attractive replacement, our dental implants are affordable. Costs vary depending on each individual’s particular needs and situation. Insurance may also help one pay for the implant, which we can further discuss during a consultation.
