What Are Dental Implants?

Model of dental implants in Brooklyn

Dental implants are short, titanium posts that we can surgically place below the gumline and into the jawbone to reconstruct the missing root structure of teeth. Due to their biocompatibility, they’ll naturally fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, providing a strong, stable, and unwavering foundation for restorations like bridges, crowns, and dentures to be attached to. Because they provide the bone with stimulation and blood flow, this treatment is able to prevent bone erosion that can lead to changes in facial shape.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

The process for receiving dental implants is inherently lengthier and a little more complex compared to traditional options like dentures or bridges. However, this process is very worthwhile given all of the benefits that dental implants have to offer, including their impressive lifespan and remarkable functionality. That said, our team is happy to walk you through this process in detail so that you can comfortably commit to rebuilding your smile with this premier restorative solution! Here’s a brief overview of the four main steps of the dental implant process:

Initial Dental Implant Consultation

During your initial consultation, our team will carefully examine your mouth and facial structures to determine if dental implants are a viable option for you. We’ll be looking at your jawbone density to ensure that the bone is strong enough to support the implant posts, as well as screening your oral health to ensure there aren’t any underlying issues that might negatively affect your implants. Once we’re able to clear you for implants, we can schedule your surgery.

Dental Implant Surgery

We’re excited to be able to complete the entire implant process in-house, meaning that you’ll be conveniently working closely with the same team under the same roof the whole time. As for the procedure itself, it’s quite straightforward; we’ll numb your mouth before making small incisions into your gum tissue to access your jawbone, where we’ll then place as many implant rods as needed. The gums are sutured shut and protective caps are placed over the posts so that they aren’t disturbed as your mouth heals.

Dental Implant Osseointegration & Abutment

The implant posts will need a few months (anywhere from three to six) to fuse with your jawbone; this part of the process is known as osseointegration, and it’s pretty important since it ensures the future success of your restorations. Patients will have to follow a very specific set of recovery guidelines during this period to ensure that things heal up properly. Once the posts have successfully fused with your jaw, you’ll come back to receive abutments, which your final restorations are attached to.

A few weeks after your abutments have been placed, we’ll call you back in to attach your custom restorations. These replacement teeth will be designed based on precise impressions of your smile, meaning they’ll look, feel, and function identically to your original teeth. Once they’ve been placed, we’ll make sure everything looks right and your bite is correct before sending you on your way with your brand-new, complete smile!

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are by no means the only form of tooth replacement available, but they do offer all kinds of benefits. The more you learn about the advantages that dental implants can provide, the easier it is to see why so many patients are turning to them to re-complete their smiles. If you’re still trying to decide whether dental implants are worth pursuing, read on to learn about some of the benefits that they provide.

Day-to-Day Benefits

Just like your natural teeth, your dental implants will play an important role in everyday tasks such as speaking and chewing. As such, you will enjoy the following benefits on a daily basis:

  • Improved Confidence: Dental implants can give your self-esteem a boost in a number of ways. For one thing, they look and feel natural, making it easier to smile without hesitation. On top of that, you’ll never need to worry about your new teeth slipping or sliding out of place.
  • A Varied Diet: Thanks to their stability, dental implants can handle most foods, meaning you can enjoy your favorite meals again without restriction.
  • Easy Maintenance: Traditional dentures require you to buy specialized products to take care of them. In contrast, dental implants can be brushed and flossed as if they were natural teeth.

Health Benefits

Dental implants can help improve your smile, but they also come with a number of key health benefits:

  • Jawbone Preservation: You may have heard that the jawbone tends to deteriorate when teeth are missing. Dental implants are the only type of tooth replacement that can prevent this bone loss from happening.
  • Improved Nutrition: It’s harder to maintain a healthy diet when there are limits on what you can eat. Fortunately, dental implants let you eat virtually any food, making it easier to fulfill your nutritional needs.
  • Keeping Natural Teeth Safe: Once tooth loss occurs, the remaining teeth may start to drift out of their proper positions. A dental implant can fill the empty space so that you don’t have to worry about future alignment issues.

Long-Term Benefits

You’ll start to appreciate your dental implants even more as the years go by thanks to these long-term benefits:

  • A High Success Rate: Dental implants that have been in the mouth for 10 years have a success rate of 95%. In other words, you can generally count on dental implants to stay successful for a long time.
  • Longevity: Dental implants last far longer than traditional forms of tooth replacement. Some patients are even able to keep the same dental implants for the rest of their lives.
  • A More Youthful Appearance: Missing teeth are often associated with a sunken, aged appearance, but dental implants can go a long way toward helping you look younger.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

So long as you’re a healthy adult, you can get dental implants. These prosthetics don’t tend to have many requirements. However, they do benefit some patients more than others. The best candidates for dental implants have these three traits:

  • Good Overall Health – Implant placement is a surgery, so your body must be decently healthy to bear it. Your treatment will lead to complications otherwise.
  • Great Oral Health – When they aren’t addressed, dental issues like cavities and gum disease cause implant failure. A dentist should treat them before your implant surgery.
  • Proper Jawbone Density – Your jawbone needs proper strength and density to support dental implants. If it’s too weak, your new teeth will become unstable and fail.

Even if you lack the qualities above, there’s no need to worry. You can become a good implant candidate through certain dental services. These preliminary procedures may include tooth extraction, gum disease therapy, or bone grafts. Once you’ve had them, your jaw will have the density needed to handle implants.

Missing One Tooth

When you’re missing just one tooth, the best solution is a single implant and crown. This pair will blend with adjacent teeth to ensure seamless results. Its effects should also last a good while – the average implant has a longer lifespan than a dental bridge. Plus, an implant-crown pair is non-invasive. Placing them doesn’t require the dentist to alter other teeth. (Such alterations can weaken a tooth and make it more sensitive.)

Missing Multiple Teeth

You’d likely benefit from an implant bridge if the missing teeth are consecutive. After all, this device relies on two dental implants fused to a pontic (i.e., artificial tooth). It can replace several chompers at once without using abutments. In other words, placing it doesn’t involve any enamel removal.

If you’ve lost teeth throughout your mouth, a partial implant denture would work well. It’d use several implant posts to anchor itself in place.

Missing All Teeth

Once you’ve lost all your natural teeth (or soon will), you may want to try an implant denture. It uses four to six implants to restore an entire arch of pearly whites.

Of course, an implant denture has advantages over a normal one. That it has dental implants means it won’t slip or fall from your mouth. Better yet, it’ll restore your bite force to help you chew tough foods. This sort of denture is also long-lasting. Unlike regular ones, it can work for a lifetime and save you money on repair and replacement work.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

While it’s true that dental implants have a higher up-front cost than traditional dental restorations, they offer countless priceless benefits that patients will agree makes them well worth the investment. The cost of dental implants is largely based on various factors our team will discuss with you during your initial consultation. Dental implants are highly customized, so prices can vary dramatically depending on your needs. During your visit with us, we can discuss exactly how much it will cost and the different financial options available. Until then, here are some things to take into consideration.

Preliminary Treatments & Dental Implant Surgery

Preliminary treatments, like gum disease therapy, tooth extractions, and bone grafting, are sometimes necessary and will add to the overall cost of your treatment. However, these preliminary treatments are vital for maximizing the success of your new smile. Fortunately, many of them are partially covered by dental insurance. We conveniently provide the entire treatment process under one roof, so you don’t need to worry about working with an outside specialist and needing to pay separately for the surgery.

The Parts of Your Dental Implant

Here are some of the most prominent factors we look at to determine the cost of your treatment:

  • Number of Implants: Depending on the number of teeth that you are missing and where they are located in your mouth, you will need more or fewer dental implants. The more implants you need, the higher the cost.
  • Type of Restoration: Crowns, bridges, and dentures all have different costs. In most cases, the smaller the restoration you get, the lower the cost is.
  • Material Used: Implants are usually made from titanium, but they can also be made from zirconia. These materials are at different price points.
  • Brand of Implants: Dental implants come from a variety of different manufacturers. This will influence their costs.

How Dental Implants Can Save You Money

It can be tempting to try to save money by opting for an alternative tooth replacement option. Dental bridges and dentures are great for some people, but dental implants provide benefits you can’t get anywhere else. They can even help you save money in the long run. You don’t need to worry about paying for replacements every 5 to 7 years like you would for dentures, you don’t need to stock up on denture adhesives or cleansing solutions. Dental implants also help to prevent dental issues from arising, ultimately helping you avoid the need for costly treatments that add up over time.

Does My Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Dental Implant FAQs

Am I Too Young to Get Dental Implants?

While any adult can get dental implants, they do have a minimum age requirement. Child and teen patients are simply too young for them.

You see, most people’s jaws don’t fully develop until their early adult years. Dental implants won’t work well before that period. If they’re placed while the jaw is growing, they’ll interfere with bone development and cause adverse effects. Therefore, most dentists won’t place implants in patients under 18 years old. Some even view the mid-20s as the earliest acceptable age for placement.

Will I Have to Take Off Work for Dental Implant Surgery?

Yes, you’ll need to take off work for dental implant surgery. Doing so ensures your treatment goes well and that you recover properly. That said, the days off needed vary by patient; every case differs.

Often, patients only need to take one or two days off for dental implant surgery. That period is long enough for any anesthetics or sedatives to wear off. Also, it gives you enough time to adjust to your new implant(s).

Still, there are exceptions. You may need more days off if your job is physically demanding. Without enough recovery time, heavy exercise could divert blood from the implant site and delay healing. So, you may want to book your surgery on a Thursday or Friday.

Do Dental Implants Decay?

Thankfully, no – dental implants don’t decay. They’re not made of enamel that erodes from bacterial acids. However, you’ll still need to clean them and the rest of your smile.

Remember, oral issues can make your implants fail. Nearby cavities and gum disease would upset the tissues that support them. If left unchecked, such problems will loosen your implants until they fall out.

To avoid that outcome, you must practice good oral hygiene. So, remember to brush your teeth twice daily and floss between them once daily. These habits will ensure your dental implants stick around for a long time.

Do Dental Implants Make You Look Younger?

As a matter of fact, yes – dental implants do make you look younger. Their effects will rejuvenate

It comes down to how implants affect your jaw. Once placed, they’ll stimulate your jawbone to recover and preserve its bone tissue. These processes then help your face look fuller and less hollow. In contrast, failing to address your smile gaps would cause your jawbone to erode. The result would be a face with wrinkled skin and lines around your mouth.

For more details on how dental implants will affect your face, consult our dentists. They’ll gladly explain what to expect from your treatment.
