About 120 million people in the US have at least one missing tooth. There was a time when we had no solution to this problem, but thanks to dental implants and other such procedures, it’s now possible to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants are metal frames or posts that are fitted into the jawbone under the gums. Once set, they can be used to mouth replacement teeth.
Dental implants can be a good option if you have one or more missing teeth. Some of the advantages of dental implants include:
- An Improved Appearance and Smile - Dental implants function and appear just like natural teeth. They’re a permanent solution to missing teeth and can greatly improve your smile.
- A Clear Speech - Since dental implants are fitted into the jawbone, there’s no risk of slippage, which is a common problem with dentures. As a result, you can speak clearly.
- Overall Oral Health - Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not need other teeth to be reduced, which keeps your oral health in check.
- Bite and Comfort - Dental implants are very comfortable. You will not feel any pain or discomfort as they become a part of your mouth and also make it easy to bite and chew on your favorite foods.
It’s an outpatient surgery that's performed in three or more stages. We use the latest technology to examine your mouth and prepare it for a dental implant surgery. Moreover, we also use anesthesia to make sure you feel no pain.
In some cases, we may have to perform additional procedures to prepare your teeth for a dental implant surgery. These include bone grafting and tooth extraction.
Dental implants have little to no side effects. They can last for about ten years. They are highly durable and convenient. Plus, with a success rate of 98%, they are the best option to replace missing teeth. However, in some cases, there may be nerve damage.
The cost largely depends on the severity of the case and the number of procedures needed. Plus, your insurance may also pay for the procedure. Call us today to get a quote.
