Your Guide to the Basics and Beauty of Dental Implants

Are you self-conscious about missing teeth? There are a few different tooth replacement treatments available today, including bridges, dentures, and dental implants. Yet dental implants are considered your best bet for replacing lost teeth.

The Facts and Facets of Dental Implants

Today, a dental implant is the preferred tooth replacement treatment for a lost tooth. It gets surgically inserted deep in 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 because they offer these advantages:

  • More comfort
  • Greater stability and security
  • No risk of slippage during the day
  • Better speech
  • Easier eating
  • Improves facial appearance
  • Longer-lasting

The Placement of Dental Implants

Thanks to advances in dentistry, you have a few different options for the placement of dental implants. Of course, your treatment plan will be based on your 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 between three and six 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 more months for the surrounding gum tissue to heal.
  3. After it has healed, a crown is attached to the implant’s extension and you’re left with a full smile.

Understanding Dental Implant Costs

While dental implants usually cost more than other tooth restoration options, the stability, beauty, and comfort they offer make the higher dental implant costs more than worth it. If cost is a major concern, see if your dentist accepts insurance or a discount dental plan like DentRite.
