Advantages of Dental Implants
They are the most natural-looking tooth replacements
Dental implants are tooth replacements closest to natural teeth. They are embedded in the jawbone, resulting in a more stable and retentive prosthesis that can look and function much the same as natural teeth.
They can last a long time with proper care
Since dental implants are made of titanium, they can withstand high forces and are resistant to tooth decay. However, gum diseases can increase the risk of implant failure, so patients must maintain good oral hygiene to ensure healthy gums. When cared for properly, dental implants can last for decades, making them a worthy investment in your oral health.
They prevent facial changes resulting from bone loss
Missing teeth leads to bone loss, and when this happens, the facial appearance changes considerably since bones support facial tissues. With dental implants, the bone loss resulting from missing teeth is prevented, and the patient's facial appearance is maintained.

Dental implants are safe and reliable and offer a long-term solution for missing teeth. They are made of titanium, a strong metal well-tolerated by the human body. Additionally, implant placement requires dental surgery, a safe and commonly performed dental procedure. Recovery from surgery is usually quick and easy, with most patients feeling little to no pain after the implant is placed. Of course, as with any surgery, there are some risks involved.
However, these risks are usually minimal and can be effectively managed by your dental team.
Before getting dental implants, it is important to have a thorough dental examination. Your dentist will need to check the health of your gums and jawbone to ensure they are strong enough to support the implants. If you have any health conditions or take medications that could interfere with the surgery and healing, be sure to let your dentist know. In some cases, the use of bone grafts may be necessary to provide adequate support for the implants.
Additionally, if you have tooth fillings, extractions, or cleaning that need to be done, it is best to have these procedures done before surgery to reduce the bacterial load in your mouth. This can reduce the risk of having an infection after the surgery.
Once the surgery is scheduled, maintain good oral hygiene habits and eat healthy foods to ensure that your gums and bone remain healthy. Finally, plan on taking a few days off from work following the surgery so that you can rest and recover. During this time, preparing soft foods that you can easily eat is helpful. Following these simple steps can help ensure a successful outcome for your dental implants.
The recovery time after dental implant placement varies from person to person, but most patients are able to return to their normal activities after a week. Gum incisions usually take two weeks to heal. During the first three to five days, patients may experience pain and swelling, usually managed with over-the-counter medications. After the fifth day, these symptoms usually start to improve until they eventually resolve.
As for the implant and bone, it takes three to four months for the implant and bone to fuse securely in a process called osseointegration. After osseointegration is completed, teeth replacements such as crowns can be attached to the implants.
Dental implants are the most natural-looking tooth replacements available. They not only look like natural teeth, but they also feel like natural teeth. This is because they are embedded in the jawbone and fuse with the bone over time. This gives them a solid foundation, just like natural teeth have. Dental implants are also made to match the shade of your remaining teeth so they will blend in seamlessly. As a result, patients achieve a full, natural-looking smile.
Getting dental implants will usually take a couple of dental visits. The number of visits will vary depending on each case.
In general, however, the dental implant process involves a few initial consultation appointments, followed by a surgery to place the implant, a few more follow-up appointments to check on healing progress, and another surgery to place the abutment. An abutment is the connecting piece between the implant and the artificial teeth. Finally, the last dental appointment will be for the attachment of the artificial tooth or teeth.
So while the exact number of visits will depend on your particular situation, you can usually expect to need several trips to the dentist for dental implants. The treatment plan will be discussed with you by our dental team during your implant consultation.
The cost of dental implants varies due to several factors, including the number of teeth being replaced, the type of implant used, and the location of the dental practice. Generally, a single dental implant can range from \$2,600 to \$4,000 per tooth. For some patients, insurance may cover a portion of the cost of dental implants. However, it is important to check with your health fund provider to see if they offer coverage for this procedure.
