Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. The procedure involves the placement of implants, which allow the jawbone to heal around them like new teeth. Dental implant surgery remains one of the safest dental surgeries today, with the longest-lasting results.
With this amazing option, you will get a cosmetic and restorative outcome that is beyond any of your previous expectations of what can be done to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are the future of dental technology due to their aesthetic beauty and full-functionality. When replacing a tooth it is almost always the best treatment plan!
Dental implants are tiny rods made of titanium that replace dead tooth roots. They can be placed in the upper or lower jaw and are surgically inserted into the jawbone. The way dental implant surgery is performed depends on your jaw bone’s condition and jaw shape. A dentist can offer you a variety of implants to choose from, including different materials, lengths, and shapes. Dental implants remain one of the safest dental surgeries that can be performed.
The materials of the implant and restoration are very strong, durable, and reliable. This means that over time, they will not decay like your body can, causing your own teeth to fall out or become loose. Implants are the most secure and reliable way to replace missing teeth — providing strength and durability that lasts a lifetime!
The process of surgical dental implantation requires numerous steps, which take time. At the start of the process, Dr. Lindsay removes the damaged tooth, then prepares your jawbone. Next Dr. Lindsay inserts the dental implant. Your jawbone will take several months to grow around the dental implant and will continue to heal as time passes.
Dental implants are not instant fixes for lost teeth. The procedure takes a long while from start to finish.
Because the implant is placed in your jaw, you can receive it immediately. It takes a few months for it to heal, then you will meet with us again to transition to your permanent restoration. You may experience some swelling in your mouth and face, minor bleeding and bruising on your skin and gums after the procedure, but everything should be healed within a few days.
Make sure to always maintain excellent oral hygiene and keep neighboring teeth and gums healthy. Implants are built to last for many decades, but regular visits to the dentist must be scheduled to ensure proper maintenance and avoid future problems.
Dental Implants are not the cheapest procedure to replace a missing tooth, but provide the best value due to their longevity, robustness and appearance. Typically the dental implant itself will cost anywhere from $1500 - $6000 depending on the various factors that go into a great restoration.
