The reason dental implants are so unique is that they do something no other tooth replacement can: bring back the crown and root of a tooth. Other treatments only bring back the part of the tooth you can see, and while this helps with aesthetics, they usually leave patients with weakened bites. Implants, on the other hand, come with many advantages:
If you’re thinking about getting dental implants, we recommend scheduling a consultation here at Advanced Smile Design. At this appointment, you’ll be given a brief exam wherein your dentist will let you know if you are a good fit for implants. Qualified patients typically need decent oral health, stable overall health, and a strong jawbone. Once all of these conditions have been met, our team can help you figure out which of the following restorative options is best for your smile:
Our team can place a single dental implant root and top it with a custom-made crown without disturbing the surrounding teeth at all. This is much different compared to a traditional bridge in which the surrounding dental structure has to be filed down to make room for the prosthetic.
Dental implant crowns can be placed throughout the mouth as needed, and a small number of roots can be used to anchor different prosthetics as well to replace multiple teeth at the same time. Both partial dentures and bridges can be secured with implants, and compared to their removable counterparts, they are much stronger, have a better look, and can be trusted to last longer as well.
Instead of replacing each tooth with a single implant, patients missing an entire row can have it fully restored using just four to six well-placed implants that are designed to hold onto a full denture. That’s all that’s needed to create a strong and reliable bite that’s much sturdier compared to a traditional removable denture.
The dental implant procedure is flexible and can be adjusted based on the needs of a patient. Because of this, there is no fixed price for the treatment, as everything from the number of implants needed to the type of restoration used can be different. While dental implants do tend to cost more upfront compared to other traditional options, they usually help patients save money thanks to their longevity. Regular bridges and dentures typically need to be replaced every five to seven years on average, while implants can easily last for 30 or more with minimal maintenance.
