Dental implants provide a permanent solution for missing teeth. Unlike dentures, bridges and other tooth replacement options, dental implants function like natural tooth roots to maintain healthy bone tissue and help prevent bone loss.
Dental implants look, fit, and feel just like natural teeth.
Each tooth implant is comprised of a small titanium screw that is safely secured into the jaw and then covered with a dental crown. The dental implant is accepted into the jawbone as replacement tooth roots. This process of acceptance is called osseointegration and is the most important of all dental implant stages.
During your consultation, your dentist will determine whether dental implants is a suitable smile solution for you. He/she will discuss the types of dental implants available and answer any questions or concerns you may have about your procedure.
Dental implant problems are rare. Smokers may exhibit bone loss. However, our dental implant dentist has the expertise and experience to strategically position the dental implant to maximize bone tissue. If you are a smoker, you dentist will discuss how this may affect your dental implants procedure.
Dental implant cost will depend on the number of teeth being treated and whether any additional procedures may be required to ensure successful tooth implant placement. For more information on dental implant prices or to schedule your consultation call (519) 824-2966 today.
