  • You can help maintain your youthful appearance by protecting the integrity of the bone structure in your jaw.
  • Most people will never notice that you have dental implants because the replacement teeth are custom matched to your existing teeth.
  • You will feel a new sense of confidence and freedom. You will no longer need to let missing teeth cause you hesitation to smile, to laugh, to eat, or to speak in public and social settings. Dental implants are permanently embedded in your jaw bone, so you will not need to worry that they will fall out at the most embarrassing time.
  • If you care for them properly, dental implants will last you a lifetime.

It’s simple. Dental implants replace teeth that you are missing. It can be one missing tooth, or it can be all your teeth. A three-step process is used to embed them in your jawbone. First, a titanium post is embedded directly into your jawbone. Over time, this post will fuse with the bone and function as a root for the replacement teeth. Secondly, an abutment is securely attached to the titanium post to act as a foundation for the custom-fabricated replacement teeth. Thirdly, a replacement tooth is specifically manufactured to match your existing teeth and is then attached to the abutment. You will once again have a brilliant smile to share with others!

This is usually a process of a few months. However, research is clear that most patients who have received dental implants are very happy with the results and found the wait was well worth it. Much of the waiting time is to allow the titanium posts to fuse with the jawbone. The wait time for this to occur can last from 2- 6 months. The fusion of the post to the jawbone is crucial to the long-term success of the dental implants. Once the posts have properly fused to the bone, the actual replacement teeth can be attached to the abutment at the final office visit.

If you are missing teeth, whether it is one or many, then you are an ideal candidate for dental implants. If you have been missing teeth for an extended period of time, it is possible that the loss of bone structure will present an extra issue to confront. In the majority of these cases, this issue can be dealt with through a bone graft.

  • Dental implants can have a higher upfront cost than other tooth replacement options. However, after the initial fee, there will not be additional costs as there are with other options. Once you have paid for your implants, you can expect them to last a lifetime. There are other teeth-replacement options, such as dentures and dental bridges, that will require additional expenses as they are maintained over the following years.
  • The exact cost of dental implants will vary in each situation based on a number of factors. Of course, the biggest influence on the cost will be the number of missing teeth that you need to replace. Beyond that factor, you will need to consult with your doctor to see if there will be additional expenses in your situation. If your teeth have been missing for an extended period of time, you may face the additional expense of a bone graft treatment. Call Green Park Dentistry today and set up a consultation to discuss the factors that may affect your overall cost of dental implants. Ultimately, we believe you will find that the positive benefits and the beautiful smile will be well worth your investment.
