So how do dental implants work?

Wondering if you even qualify for dental implants?

Certain Factors  Can Affect Your Ability to Heal Properly 

Thanks to advancements in technology and surgical techniques, virtually anyone with a missing tooth is a good candidate for dental implants. However, there are certain lifestyle factors and medical conditions that can affect the success of your dental implants, including: 

Reduced Jawbone Tissue 

When you lose a tooth, your jawbone almost immediately begins to recede. Because deficient bone tissue can create an unstable surface for your dental implants, Dr. Anderson can perform a bone graft to add volume and density to your bone tissue

Tobacco Use 

Smoking is known to inhibit your body's natural healing process and has been linked to an increased risk of implant failure, so Dr. Anderson will typically recommend that you quit smoking prior to your surgery. 

Existing Oral Health Concerns 

Other than missing teeth, you should be in otherwise good oral health in order to qualify for dental implants. Conditions such as periodontal disease can cause peri-implantitis and implant failure

Uncontrolled Diabetes 

If you are a diabetic patient, high glucose levels can increase your risk of complications during surgery and prolong your healing. Discuss your medical history with Dr. Anderson so that he can make the proper recommendations for treatment. 

How long will it take from start to finish?

Consultation

The doctor will assess your candidacy and discuss your lifestyle, concerns, goals, and budget. 

Implant Placement

Small incisions will be made in your gums and the dental implants will be surgically placed in the jaw.

Healing Period

During this four- to six-month period, the implants will fuse directly with the jawbone.

Abutment Placement

A small connector piece will be attached to each implant, which can then be used to secure the restoration. 

Second Healing Period

During this period, the gums will heal around the abutments. This usually takes a few weeks.

Attachment of Restoration

Once you are fully healed, your dentist will provide a permanent implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture.

What does the recovery process entail?

Recovering from Dental Implant Surgery

Immediately after dental implant surgery, you should rest for the remainder of the day. However, many patients are able to return to work the next day. For the first few days, it is normal to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bleeding. To minimize your risk of complications, you should: 

  • Eat a soft foods diet for the first few days
  • Gently rinse your mouth with salt water several times per day
  • Avoid spicy and acidic foods 
  • Exercise caution when brushing around the implant site
  • Take any medications as prescribed

Full recovery typically takes about four to six months. In the meantime, you may need to attend one or more check-up appointments so we can monitor your progress.

Implant-Supported Restorations Are the Next Best Thing to Natural Teeth 

Because dental implants provide a direct connection between your jawbone and dental crowns, bridges, or dentures, they are widely considered the most natural-looking way to restore missing teeth

Implants also allow your restorations to function just like natural teeth. This is especially important for patients who are receiving implant-supported dentures because dental implants eliminate any slipping or clicking that can occur with conventional dentures. 

Once your treatment is complete, you can enjoy your favorite foods and smile with confidence once again

Are dental implants worth the cost?

Invest in Your Health and Well-Being

The cost of dental implant treatment is dependent upon several factors and varies significantly from patient to patient. While traditional restorations are more affordable upfront, it is highly recommended you receive dental implants if you qualify. Dental implants offer several benefits that traditional methods do not, offering greater value for your health and quality of life for years and even decades to come.

Treatment with implants is not typically covered by insurance. However, Dr. Anderson allows patients to finance their treatment with both third-party and in-house payment plans

What factors will influence the cost of your treatment?

Breaking Down the Cost of Dental Implants

Size and Quality of Restoration

The number of missing teeth will determine which type of restoration is right for you–a crown, bridge, or denture. Typically, larger restorations and high-end materials cost more. 

Number of Implants Needed

One implant is not required for every missing tooth. However, the number of implants will vary from patient to patient depending on the type of restoration, existing jawbone density, and other factors.

Preparatory Procedures

If you need several teeth extracted, treatment for gum disease, or bone grafting to strengthen the jaw, these procedures will increase the cost of your overall treatment

Sedation Options

In some cases, patients may only require local anesthetic for their dental implant procedure. However, if you are undergoing more extensive surgery, sedation may be recommended.

Doctor's Experience

While many dentists provide dental implants, Dr. Anderson offers a higher level of skill and expertise for the most precise placement. This can be invaluable as it can reduce your risk of implant failure.

Financing can help reduce your up-front out-of-pocket expenses...

Consider dental implants a lifetime investment in your oral health...

Far-Reaching Benefits That Can Change Your Life

Regain Confidence in Your Smile

Many patients who suffer tooth loss are embarrassed by gaps in their smile, causing them to hide their teeth and avoid social situations. Dental implants can complete your smile and restore your confidence.

Improve Your Speech and Diet

Trying to eat and speak with missing teeth can be uncomfortable and frustrating. Overcoming these challenges can make daily activities easier and improve your quality of life.

Save Money in the Long Run

While dental implants have a higher up-front cost, they prevent jawbone atrophy and further tooth loss which can require extensive and costly ongoing restorative care. Over a lifetime, implants can minimize the need for ongoing intervention.
