What is a Dental Implant?
If you were to look at a dental implant, you’d probably think, “That doesn’t look like a tooth!” That’s because an implant is actually a prosthetic tooth root that is placed directly into the jawbone. Made of titanium, it fully bonds with the nearby bone, and this is used to support a crown, bridge, or denture up top. Right now, implants are the only procedure available that restores 100% of a tooth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Security: Implants enable a patient to speak confidently and eat whatever they like because the teeth never shift or slip out of place.
- Renewed Confidence: Each implant root is topped with a custom-made restoration, and because implants don’t have obvious attachments, they blend into any smile to boost someone’s appearance as well as their oral health.
- Made to Last: With minimal maintenance (regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups), an implant can be trusted to last for about 30 years, which is multiple times longer compared to traditional bridges and dentures.
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Any patient with missing teeth can be a good candidate for dental implants as long as they have a relatively healthy mouth and enough strong jawbone to hold the new roots. Once both of these have been confirmed (or achieved if a patient needs treatment), our team can help a patient select which type of implant procedure would best suit their needs.
Missing Single Tooth
A lone space can be filled with a dental implant attached to an all-porcelain crown. This approach is actually more conservative compared to a dental bridge, as getting an implant doesn’t require the teeth next to the missing one to be reshaped and filed down.
Missing Multiple Teeth
A patient doesn’t have to get an implant for every single tooth that is missing. A bridge or partial denture can be secured to the jawbone using a small number of implants, bringing back several teeth at once.
Missing All Teeth
Four to six implants can be used to attach a full denture inside the mouth and ensure it never moves out of place. We can provide a patient with a completely new prosthetic, or we can even upgrade someone’s current dentures so they fit over implants and gain extra stability.
While other dental offices in the area will send you running all over Texas to have the implant procedure completed, we’re able to handle everything ourselves at Dental Center of Lakewood. From your initial consultation to placing your new roots to attaching your new teeth, you’ll work alongside our friendly and experienced team, helping you achieve gorgeous results while enjoying peace of mind throughout the entire process.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Every dental implant procedure we provide has to be customized to deliver the best possible outcome, and because of this, the final cost is always different from patient to patient. Generally, the more implants someone needs, the more expensive the procedure. Thankfully, implants are extremely durable and are considered one of the best investments in dentistry because they have been shown to last decades longer compared to other replacements.
