Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a tiny, screw-shaped post made of biocompatible material, usually titanium, surgically inserted into the jawbone. The implant serves as an artificial tooth root, providing a stable foundation for a dental restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture.
These implants commonly replace one or more missing teeth caused by various dental conditions, including periodontal disease, injury, tooth decay, etc.
Compared to other alternatives, implants are often preferred because they closely resemble natural teeth in both appearance and functionality and can last for an extended period of time.

Wondering, Whether You Are the Right Candidate for Dental Implants or Not?

So, if you’re looking for a implant, you might be a perfect fit if you have overall good health and your jaw has enough bone to support the implant.

It’s also essential that your gums are healthy and not suffering from the periodontal disease since implants are connected to both the soft and hard tissues in your mouth. 

Types Of Dental Implants

Our dental expert at LeSueur Family Dental will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your condition and the selected implant type.
Here are several potential treatment options that our professionals may recommend based on the situation:
  • Single Tooth Dental Implants – For patients with a missing tooth, a single-tooth implant is recommended.
  • Multiple Tooth Dental Implants – Patients missing several teeth can choose to go for multiple implants.
  • Full Mouth Dental Implants – Some individuals who are missing all their teeth can opt for full-mouth implants to replace them.

Advantages of Getting Dental Implants

There are several advantages to getting implants, including the following:
  • Improve your ability to speak clearly and chew your food comfortably.
  • It enhances the appearance of your smile, giving you greater confidence.
  • Secure permanent or removable bridges and dentures, providing a reliable and long-lasting solution for missing teeth.
  • Replace missing teeth without altering or shaving down your neighboring teeth, which dental bridges require.
  • Avoid the development of cavities, as implants are not susceptible to decay.
#Pro Tip: Dental implants require the same level of care as natural teeth to keep them in good condition. This includes brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash daily and attending regular dental check-ups.

What Does a Dental Implant Procedure Involve?

Getting implants requires multiple visits to the dentist for several months. During the process, X-rays and impressions of the jaw and teeth are taken to determine the exact positioning of bone tissue, gum structure, and available space for the implant.
The area is then numbed, and the implant is surgically placed into the bone. The implant may require healing time to fuse with the bone, which can take up to six months.
Depending on the type of implant used, an additional surgical procedure may be required to attach the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. The post and anchor are sometimes attached and inserted simultaneously as the implant.
After a few weeks of healing, the artificial tooth or teeth are created and fitted onto the post part of the anchor. This process can take one to two months to complete as multiple fittings may be necessary.

Once the healing period is over, the synthetic teeth are firmly attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient. Your dentist will provide you with care instructions upon completion of your treatment.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

The expense of dental implants can vary based on several factors, including the location, the complexity of the case, and the materials employed. A single dental implant can typically cost between $1,000 and $4,000, while a complete set of multiple teeth implants can range from $1,500 to over $50,000.
Additional procedures like bone grafting or a sinus lift may influence the cost. It would be best if you spoke with your dentist to obtain an accurate estimate of the cost of a dental implant tailored to your particular needs.
