A dental implant is a small, titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. A crown, bridge, or denture can then be attached to the implant to restore the appearance and function of the missing tooth.
Dental implants are a very successful treatment for missing teeth. They are strong and durable, and they can last for many years. In fact, studies have shown that the success rate for dental implants is over 95%.
If you are considering dental implants, it is important to talk to your dentist to see if they are right for you. There are some factors that can affect the success of dental implants, such as the amount of bone in your jaw and your overall health. However, for most people, dental implants are a safe and effective way to replace missing teeth.
Here are some of the benefits of dental implants:
If you've lost a tooth due to injury, decay, gum disease, or any other reason, we recommend dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth.
Dental implants are placed into the jawbone and mirror the same function as the root of a tooth. The procedure for dental implants is usually performed while a patient is sedated. Patients who undergo IV sedation must have an empty stomach and transportation home following the procedure. Most sedation patients will have little to no memory of the procedure occurring.
Generally, dental implants are made out of a biocompatible metal such as titanium. Biocompatible metals are also used for other common bone implants (such as shoulder, hip, and knee replacements). The visible portion of the implant is usually made out of porcelain and is custom-made to match your existing teeth.
Dental implants are designed to fuse to the bone, which makes them become permanent fixtures. Typically speaking, the success rate is nearly 100%. There are few cases in which the implant will not fuse as intended and must be removed. If this happens to occur, the procedure can be attempted again a few months later.
Dental implants are not usually covered by dental insurance, but may be covered under a patient's medical insurance. Our office and your insurance company can discuss coverage options with you based on your individual case and treatment plan.
