Dental implants are replacements for the teeth’s roots. They are meant to be a foundation for placing fixed or removable replacement teeth. Dental implants are a godsend for those with missing teeth who want to restore their smile. There are a few other requirements to be eligible to receive dental implants. Firstly, the patient should have healthy gums and enough bones to hold the implant can receive it. The procedure is particularly suited for those whose jawbone has reached full growth.

A distinct benefit that dental implants offer over other solutions such as dentures is that they usually have an improved appearance as they look and feel like natural teeth. Speech is unimpaired compared to someone wearing dentures that might slip within the mouth. They are comfortable and convenient as they can be maintained as regular teeth. Dental implants also allow the patient to eat foods normally without worrying about something like sliding dentures. All of these benefits come with improved oral health as nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant. Overall, dental implants are a convenient alternative to dentures that also works to boost the patient’s self-esteem.

There are many steps to a dental implant procedure. It starts with a thorough and comprehensive dental exam that involves taking X-rays and making models of the teeth and jaw. The doctor then examines the patient’s medical history for red flags. Just like all procedures, care has to be taken if the patient suffers from bleeding disorders, infections, allergies, or any other medical conditions that might need to be reviewed. Then finally, a treatment plan is created that takes into account the number of teeth to be replaced and the condition of the jaw. Dental implants are considered very safe with a success rate of close to 98%. The procedure is mostly painless with most patients saying that they are less painful than tooth extractions.

For the actual dental procedure, first, the titanium tooth root implant is placed in the bone socket. As the jawbone heals over 6 to 12 weeks, it grows around the implanted metal post, implanting it securely. Once the implant has fused to the jawbone, a small connector is attached to the post to hold the new replacement tooth. The replacement tooth is called a crown. Some patients might choose to have attachments on the implant to support removable dentures. There might be a few side effects after the procedure such as swelling and bruising of gums, pain at the implant site, and minor bleeding.

The cost of dental implants varies based on the region and the doctor. A conservative estimate puts it in the ballpark of $3000 to $4500. Dental insurance will most likely not cover the tooth implant cost but some may cover the cost of the implant crown. This is because they have been considered as an elective procedure.

A spokesperson for the clinic says, “We want to bring the smile back on the faces of all of our clients. We give every patient that walks through our doors, the personalized attention that they deserve. We diagnose the problems and offer the solution that works best for the client.
