What Exactly Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are tiny posts that are often made from titanium. The implants are a substitute for the tooth’s natural root. An abutment is added to the implant. The abutment or connection can be built into or attached on top of the implant. The actual replacement tooth or crown is then added and is shaped to match the rest of your natural teeth.
Why Are Implants a Preferred Dental Treatment?
Dental implants are usually preferred because they look natural. The implants also feel natural once they are implanted in the gums. Dental implants are ideal for replacing lost or decayed teeth. Once the implants are secure, they will not click or slip when you are eating or talking. This makes them more reliable than dentures for some patients. Implants also help to improve the health of your jaw, which helps you maintain a natural face shape.
What Is the Cost of Dental Implants?
Dental implants will be customized since no two patients and their dental needs are alike. This means that the cost of dental implants will vary from person to person. When you are going through the implant process, you may have to visit the dentist several times for preparation and to complete the implant process in stages. Suburban Essex Dental has a team of dental implant experts who will let you know the cost of each facet of the procedure. You will be aware of the fees associated with your treatment and you can discuss payment plans with your dentist as well. We will also discuss your payments from your insurance provider and how you can finance the remainder if necessary.
Dental Implant Timeline and Safety
The time it takes to complete the implant process will vary from patient to patient. After going through testing and diagnostics, the dentist will give you a detailed treatment plan. The plan will include the estimated time it will take to complete the procedure. The number of implants you need, as well as your dental and medical history and the bone support in your jaw, will determine how long the process will take. Various materials and techniques will also be incorporated into your treatment based on your needs. If you have a complex dental issue, it can take up to a year to complete all procedures. Minor dental conditions and implant processes could take as little as a few months.
Dental implants have been around for about 25 years now, and have been proven effective and safe. Our well-trained and knowledgeable dental team will make the process as easy as possible. The dentist will also go over your history, including if you have a history of smoking so that you will know both the benefits and risks involved with your surgery.
