Benefits of Dental Implants
What makes dental implants so special compared to more traditional treatments like bridges and dentures? It all comes down to the fact that dental implants do something that no other treatment can: replace an entire tooth from top to bottom.
Other tooth replacements only bring back the visible part of the tooth above the gum line, which inherently makes them unstable and more likely to break down over time. With implants, however, the new teeth are held firmly in place using titanium prosthetic tooth roots that are surgically positioned directly into the jawbone.
This approach not only gives them an extremely natural appearance, but it also helps prevent and even reverse the bone loss that is so common after tooth loss. And, thanks to the high-quality materials we use, dental implant restorations can be expected to last for 30 years or more, which is multiple times longer than other replacement options.
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants are able to reliably replace any number of missing teeth, from just one to an entire row. Depending on your needs, our team will recommend one of the following restorative options:
Missing One Tooth
In this situation, an all-porcelain crown can be affixed directly to an implant root after it has been placed within the jawbone. Unlike with a regular bridge, this new tooth won’t require support from the neighboring teeth to stay in place, making it a safer and more comfortable option at the same time.
Missing Multiple Teeth
For those missing more than one tooth in a row, implant crowns can be placed on either side of the gap to support additional prosthetic teeth that close it. Implant-retained bridges not only look better than traditional ones, but they can be expected to stay in place better and last longer as well.
Missing All Your Teeth
Whether you already have a denture or are in need of one, those with many missing teeth can still be good candidates for dental implants. Using a few strategically located prosthetic roots, a denture can be secured directly to the jawbone to provide a secure fit and hold a regular removable prosthetic simply can’t match.
Start to Finish Convenience
Most dental offices need to refer patients out in order to provide implants, namely for the procedure in which the new roots are positioned within the jawbone. This typically adds quite a bit of time, expense, and stress to the process, which is why we save our patients the hassle and offer the entire procedure right here at Prime Dentistry. Dr. Ahir and Dr. Shekhadiya have the specialty training to perform both the surgical placement and restoration of implants so our patients can enjoy a smooth and efficient experience while reclaiming their smile.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Because dental implants are able to help patients with a wide spectrum of tooth loss, the cost of the procedure can vary quite a bit from person to person. Certain factors like how many teeth need to be replaced, where they are located, and if a patient’s jawbone can safely support implants can all influence the final price.
Despite a patient’s situation, implants are actually the most cost-effective replacement, largely thanks to their longevity. While traditional bridges & dentures usually need to be completely redone every 7-10 years, implants can be trusted to easily last for 30 years or more, helping a patient save thousands in retreatment over time.
