Get Answers to All of Your Questions about Dental Implants

You don’t have to live with lost teeth because you have several tooth replacement options, such as dentures, bridges, and dental implants. Discover why dental implants are the top choice for a fuller smile.

Why are dental implants preferred today?

When you ask both patients and dentists to recommend the best tooth restoration option for missing teeth, they almost always say a dental implant. It is surgically embedded into the jawbone to act as the root of a tooth and provide a mount for artificial replacement teeth. Dental implants are often preferred over both bridges and dentures for the following reasons:

  • More comfortable
  • Stays secure and stable
  • Won’t fall out or slip during wear
  • Fully restores ability to talk and eat
  • Improves facial appearance
  • Lasts longer

What’s involved in placing dental implants?

Today, there are a few different ways that dentists place these tooth restorations. Each patient’s treatment depends on his or her dental needs and personal preferences. In more complex cases, the entire dental implant process can require a few different procedures over several months. In simpler cases, patients can choose same day dental implants that offer maximum convenience and immediate results. If you’re not eligible for same day dental implants, take a look at the longer placement procedure:

  1. The dentist surgically inserts an implant into the jawbone and then waits around three months for it to fully fuse to the bone.
  2. Once it has bonded to the bone, the dentist attaches an extension and then waits a few months for the gums to heal again.
  3. After it has healed, a crown is attached to the implant’s extension and you’re left with a full smile.

What are the average dental implant costs?

In general, dental implants cost slightly more than other tooth restoration methods like bridges and dentures. But the stability, comfort, improved appearance, and better quality of life they offer make the higher dental implant costs worth it for most people. If cost is a major concern, see if your dentist accepts insurance or a discount dental plan like DentRite.
