Your smile is a precious thing. You should do everything possible to safeguard it. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, dental implant surgery is a popular solution. Getting dental implant surgery can bring back your smile and boost your confidence.
With many advancements in technology, getting dental implants is simpler than you might think. If you want to avoid wearing dentures or take care of the missing or damaged teeth, dental implant surgery is your solution.
In a nutshell, dental implants are made of titanium and connect the tooth (crown) to the jaw. Dental specialists place implants with care into the jaw. A foundation is also set to secure the permanent teeth as well as the removable replacement teeth. It is wise to get an implant if a nerve or root is damaged.
If you are planning to get a dental implant, the first thing to do is get an appointment for the consultation with a dentist who will check your mouth to see if you are suitable to get a dental implant. They will also get x-rays to check on specific spots to see if they can hold the implants. Only if they feel confident that there is enough space to hold the implant, they will take things further.
If you want to save just a single tooth, a single dental implant is the solution. After inserting the implant into the jawbone, the dentist will restore the existing tooth with a dental crown. It looks like a real tooth.
If you are to replace multiple teeth, consider multiple dental implants. This is a better and more comfortable option than bridges or dentures when you have missing teeth.
The price for the procedure depends mainly on the number of implants that you are planning to get, the materials being used and other factors. One of our dentists will provide a consultation including going over the costs and steps. If you have private insurance in place, a portion of the expenses will usually be covered, depending on your particular coverage.
Dental implants provide many benefits, including improved appearance and comfort. Besides improving your smile, they can help enhance your speech, comfort and self-confidence.
