What is Dental Implant?
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.
Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usual titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist - a specialist of the gums and supporting bone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural-looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!
Dental implants are strong and durable and will last many years. On occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.
Reason For Dental Implants
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
Almost anyone who is missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth is a candidate for dental implants.
How much do dental implants cost and does insurance cover the cost?
Dental implant treatment may qualify for some insurance coverage, but situations vary. The cost will vary by patient needs, bone quantity, and region. Our Doctors make an assessment based on your unique needs.
Do dental implants last?
Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to dental diseases such as decay; however, the health of the gums is vital to maintaining lasting implant success. .
