Whether you’re missing one tooth or all the teeth in your smile, you’re more than likely going to experience some hiccups throughout your day-to-day as a result. With dental implants at Brush Dental, your tooth loss is only a temporary concern. Feel free to give our office a call today to learn more about tooth replacement with dental implants and whether they are right for you!
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth replacements designed to mimic the roots of teeth while simultaneously holding a dedicated restoration. The titanium post integrates with the jawbone tissue, while an abutment (a small connector) attaches a restoration (either a crown, bridge, or denture) to the implant. This ensures long-term stability and longevity that is truly unmatched.
The dental implant process consists of four main phases, all of which are crucial to the success of your tooth replacement. They include:
There are many benefits that come with dental implants that not only make them unique, but a worthwhile investment. For example, dental implants provide:
Dental implants are viable for people with all levels of tooth loss. This makes them incredibly versatile, especially compared to other methods. Learn how the process changes depending on how many teeth you need to replace!
A single crown is placed on top of a dental implant. The crown is made from natural-looking dental porcelain in order to blend in with neighboring teeth as closely as possible.
A single implant can hold a two-crown bridge in some cases, while a pair of dental implants are typically used to hold a three- or four-crown bridge. This means nearby teeth do not have to be modified just to hold a restoration.
Dentures can be modified to attach directly to dental implants. Both full and partial dentures can be customized to fit onto them as well, making the process that much more personalized.
Since every dental implant treatment is unique, the cost of your treatment is likely to be significantly different compared to someone else’s. For example, the number of implants needed to replace teeth, the restoration used to complete your smile, and the preparatory treatments necessary to make implants viable (i.e. gum therapy, extractions, bone grafting, etc.) can all dramatically influence costs. During your consultation, we’ll go over your treatment in better detail and help you with creating a financing plan that fits into your budget.
