If you have gaps where teeth are missing, or you are currently wearing a full or partial denture, there may be a better way to enjoy your smile. And that is with Dental Implants.
Dental implants truly provide the next best thing to natural teeth. While dentures can replace missing teeth, they are well-known for being inconvenient to those that actually wear dentures. Dental implants are not only reliable but also healthier for your smile and a better long-term investment in your oral health.
Dental Implants Provide New Tooth Roots
Instead of covering the gums with a smile lookalike using removable dentures, let’s rebuild your smile from the ground up by using dental implants.
A dental implant procedure is actually providing you with a replacement tooth root. It is made from medical-grade titanium implant post, which is a material that bonds with your natural bone. The bone and titanium grow together, making the titanium root the perfect foundation for a new tooth.
A dental implant can:
Now, your false teeth don’t have to depend on your natural teeth or gums for support. Bridges and dentures can damage the surrounding teeth, but dental implants protect your smile while offering ultimate security.
Dental implants require an oral surgeon. These are dental implant experts and have experience in providing implants that look just like natural teeth.
Dental Implants Procedure
We are pleased to announce that we both place and restore dental implants at Today Dental. Many dentists send their patients away to other offices for dental implant placement and bring them back for the restoration. We know how important convenience and continuity of care are during a surgery. Our talented team will successfully place and restore your implants right here at Today Dental.
- Our dentist will place the dental implants based on a plan designed for your unique smile.
- You will be given several months to heal, during which the bond fuses together with the implants. You can wear a temporary tooth replacement during this time.
- We will place the abutment piece on top of the dental implant, which connects the implant to the replacement tooth.
- We will design and place your new replacement tooth permanently onto the implant.
Your dental implants will look real, feel natural, and last a lifetime. They protect your oral health by stimulating the jawbone and preventing deterioration. If you are hoping to maintain a functional smile and a youthful appearance for as long as possible, dental implants are likely a good choice for you.
Cost of Dental Implants
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, there are a few options available. You can either get dental implants, have a dental bridge installed, or use dentures. Each of these options has its own set of pros and cons, but one of the main factors people consider when making this decision is the cost. The cost of dental implants depends on how many teeth you are looking to replace. Full mouth dental implants will obviously be more expensive than replacing one or two teeth.
Dental implants are considered to provide the best results. If you have your own teeth and only need one or two implants to replace a missing tooth or teeth, the better option is to get dental implants over dentures. The overall health of teeth will cost you less with this option over dentures that may harm your remaining teeth, cause gum tissue irritation, or other problems with your dental health in the long run.
Another option is a dental bridge. This is less expensive than implants, but it’s not as durable and it can damage your surrounding teeth.
Dental implants can be life-changing for so many patients! To learn more about the capabilities of dental implants, or to schedule your consultation, contact Today Dental.
