What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are considered a “top of the line” choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Unlike dentures that can be removed, and at times cause pain and be uncomfortable, dental implants are permanent.

The implants consist of small titanium posts or rods that are drilled into the upper or lower jawbone. After an appropriate healing time, the titanium rods, acting much like fence posts or tree roots, are fitted with crowns. That’s the actual artificial tooth or teeth you will chew with, articulate with, and smile with.

The Implant Process by a Periodontist

At Toothology, we believe dental implants are more stable than alternative artificial teeth because of their special ability for the titanium to fuse with the jaw bone. This “magic” process is called osseointegration — and it ensures long term success of all dental implants single tooth or full mouth.

Types of Implants

The following are four types of dental implants and their placements:

  1. Two-stage dental implants – In this standard approach, a patient will heal for a few months after the post is drilled into the jaw. Then, a minor procedure is done to reveal the implant, attach the abutment, and place a temporary crown.
  2. Single-stage implants – This procedure takes place in a single day and involves placing a longer implant into the jawline so that the top of the implant is exposed. After healing, the abutment and restoration are placed onto the titanium rod without exposing the implant again.
  3. Subperiosteal – This type of dental implant is placed under the gum but is not drilled into the jaw. This solution is best for patients who don’t have a healthy natural jawbone and are unwilling to undergo a bone augmentation to rebuild it.
  4. Immediate Load Dental Implants – Immediate load dental implants are also done in a single visit — including placement of the implant and temporary crown. This is a viable option for patients with sufficient natural bone.

The Benefits of Dental Implants: The Affordable Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime, that’s why Toothology believes they are the superior choice for artificial tooth replacements.

Here are some of the other benefits of dental implants:

They Look, Feel, and Function Like Natural Teeth

Dental implants don’t just look like natural teeth, they also feel and function closely to real teeth because of the way they are placed in the jawbone.

They are a Permanent Replacement

Since dental implants are put directly into the jawbone, they have a stable foundation and are secured in place. You won’t need to use adhesives to keep them in position, and you won’t need to worry about them slip or falling out.

They are Durable

Dental implants are designed to last you many, many years. If you’re good about keeping up with your oral health, they can even last you a lifetime!

They Will Improve Your Oral Health

Sure, dental implants give you back a full, more attractive smile, but they have a positive effect on your health too. When you lose teeth, it can lead to nearby teeth shifting into the open space and bone deterioration in your jaw. Dental implants help keep your other teeth in place and stimulate the bone to maintain your health.

Caring For Dental Implants

Just like natural teeth, dental implants need daily care. Use a toothbrush and floss as you normally would, twice a day. Cleaning is particularly important after meals. Of course, regular bi-annual checkups are also essential for the health of your implants.

Cost for Dental Implants

Generally, dental implants price between $2,000 and $4,000 per tooth. This is only a rough average and doesn’t take into account the sensitivity and difficulty of the implant placement procedure. Every case is unique and Toothology will do the best job it can to meet your functional and aesthetic needs.

About the Dental Implant Procedure

Getting a dental implant can be broken up into two main parts: placing the implant through surgery and adding the restoration. The first is a surgical procedure where we place the implant, which is a small screw-like post, into the space where the missing tooth is. We allow this area to heal so the jawbone can fuse with the implant, like how the roots of natural teeth are.

Great Reviews: Reasons to Choose Dental Implants

When it’s time for the second phase of your procedure, we’ll bring you back to place the abutment, a connector piece, and your chosen restoration. Your restoration could be a dental crown, bridge, or dentures depending on how many teeth are being replaced.
