Throughout your life, you had never expected to find yourself living with the challenges of tooth loss; however, now you are among the 120 million Americans who are missing at least one tooth. To regain a complete smile, you have tried traditional tooth replacement options, like bridges, partials, or dentures but they did not give you the results you wanted. As an alternative, you are considering dental implants but you are a bit hesitant because they do require dental surgery. Despite your apprehension, D Smiles Family Dentistry highly recommends them. With over a 95% success rate, you will make a long-term investment in your confidence, oral health, and quality of life.
Invest in Yourself with Dental Implants
Dental implants are the most predictable and reliable solution to treat tooth loss due to the use of an implant post. It is surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the tooth root. The jawbone naturally fuses to it because it encourages new bone growth. This not only provides a secure foundation for the tooth implant, but also preserves your bone density in your jaw. This will improve your oral health while allowing you to benefit from a solution that closely looks and feels natural.
Complete Your Smile with Permanent Solution
Generally, if you are missing at least one tooth and have good oral and general health, you are a candidate for dental implants. When used to treat your tooth loss, you will benefit from the most reliable option that has the potential to last for a lifetime.
To complete your smile, the number of implant posts needed will vary depending on how many teeth need to be replaced.
Single Tooth: An implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone. After the bone has healed, an abutment is attached to connect a custom-made dental crown.
Multiple Teeth: A bridge of prosthetic teeth is created to fill the space, which is then held in place using one or two implant posts.
Complete Tooth Loss: A custom-made denture will be anchored to your jawbone using an average of four implant posts.
With the use of the posts, you will not have to worry about any slipping, irritation, or discomfort. Your new teeth will stay firmly in place, allowing you to chew, speak, and smile with ease.
Start Your Journey to a Beautiful Smile
If you are ready to complete your smile with dental implants, it is natural to be concerned about the cost of treatment. Although they do tend to cost more than traditional options, they are more affordable long-term. The amount you can expect to pay will vary as their cost is influenced by several factors, such as the number of teeth being treated, additional procedures, and your insurance coverage.
To protect your investment, it is best to brush your teeth twice a day and floss every night before going to bed. Pay extra attention when cleaning around the implant posts to reduce your risk for an infection that can lead to implant failure. In addition, do not forget to visit your dentist twice a year for preventive care.
