Dental Implants in Lakewood Ranch, FL

If you’re like the majority of adults in America, you’ve lost at least one of your permanent teeth. Teeth lost to gum disease or dental decay can leave unsightly gaps that make you want to avoid smiling. They can even cause your facial structure to change over time. Fortunately, dental implants provide a solution that restores your confidence and your dental health. Here’s a quick rundown of the dental implants procedure.

What’s a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are orthodontic devices that replace the roots of teeth. They’re small, screw-shaped, and made from a strong metal called titanium. During dental implant surgery, dental implants are placed in the area where natural teeth used to be. Two types of implants can be used: endosteal and subperiosteal. Endosteal dental implants are inserted directly into your jawbone to serve as anchors for your new artificial teeth. Subperiosteal dental implants are placed under your gum tissue but don’t extend into your actual bone; these are used for patients who don’t have enough viable bone tissue to support the more common endosteal implants.

Dental Implants Cost

The cost of dental implants is unique for each patient. Factors affecting dental implants cost include dental implants insurance benefits, post and crown materials and any additional surgeries such as bone grafts that may be required. Although they cost more than other types of tooth replacement, dental implants offer improved dental health and a host of benefits that dentures and bridges can’t provide. Finding affordable dental implants is easier than you may think. Contact our office so we can help you explore your options for getting dental implants in Lakewood Ranch.

How Can My Dental Insurance Help With Dental Implants Cost?

Unfortunately, if you have a typical insurance plan, the cost of dental implants with insurance won’t be any lower. Because the dental implants procedure is considered cosmetic restoration, most plans don’t offer dental implants insurance coverage. Even without coverage, you can still get affordable dental implants. Contact us to discuss our flexible, convenient dental implants financing options.

Dental Implants Procedure Steps

It can take several months to complete the dental implants procedure. Understanding the process of dental implants is easier when you break it down into steps. The following steps apply to implants that are inserted directly into your jawbone.

  1. Your jaw is evaluated and prepared for surgery; this step may include bone graft surgery, if necessary.
  2. Dental implants are surgically placed deep into your jawbone where they will fuse with the surrounding bone tissues for several months.
  3. After your dental implants are fully integrated with your jawbone, the surgical site is reopened, and connecting appliances called abutments are placed onto the implants.
  4. Finally, your natural-looking, artificial tooth crowns are added and secured into place. If you experience any dental implant procedure pain during the process, nonprescription medication can help.

Dental Implants Patient Benefits

Dental implants benefits clearly outshine the perks of wearing dentures or other restorative devices. Here are a few benefits you’ll enjoy if you replace your missing teeth with dental implants.

  • A 100 percent natural-looking smile
  • Greater self-confidence
  • Freedom from complex denture cleaning rituals
  • Improved speech and chewing capabilities
  • Stabilization of your jaw and facial structure

How Long Can I Expect My Dental Implants to Last?

How long dental implants last can depend on several factors, such as your access to professional dental care, your oral hygiene quality and the position of your dental implants inside your mouth. However, with excellent care, you can expect your affordable dental implants to provide many years or even a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.

Caring for Dental Implants After Your Surgery

Dental implant care after surgery isn’t a hassle. If you experience pain immediately after the procedure, taking over-the-counter medicines should be enough to relieve it. Because your dental implants are designed to function just like natural teeth, you can treat them as if they were. Brush and floss daily, use antibacterial mouthwash to kill germs, and see your dentist regularly for exams and cleanings.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you are missing one or more teeth and have a healthy jaw, you may be a great dental implant candidate. To determine if your jaw is stable enough to support dental implants, you’ll need to see a professional dentist for a thorough evaluation. If you are someone who needs dental implants, our skilled providers can supply the information and guidance you need to obtain the best solution for your missing teeth.
