Benefits of Dental Implants
So why are dental implants the right choice for West Hollywood patients? The answer is simple – they’re designed to replicate the entire structure of the tooth, including the root beneath the surface of the gum line. While those focused on aesthetics might not find this necessary, the truth is the jawbone suffers without tooth roots in place to stimulate it, leading to deterioration, additional oral health problems, and even a hunched facial appearance over time. Implants can prevent these issues from happening, keeping your appearance youthful and natural-looking.
Some of the additional benefits of dental implants include:
- Root and tooth replacement: The implant will keep your jawbone healthy and stimulated.
- Long-lasting: Dental implants can last decades or even a lifetime.
- High success rate: More than 95% of dental implant placements are successful.
- Natural functioning: Dental implants work just like your normal teeth, so you don’t have to worry about problems with eating, speaking or chewing.
- Enhanced aesthetics: You won’t experience facial sagging thanks to your dental implant keeping your bone structure intact.
- No damage to nearby teeth: Having dental implants placed does not affect any of your other teeth.
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants are a versatile treatment option. Whether you need one, multiple or all your teeth replaced, dental implants are a great tooth replacement option.
Missing One Tooth
If you only need one tooth replaced, an implant is placed into your jawbone. After a few months spent healing and allowing the implant to fuse properly to your bone, you’ll return to have an abutment connected to the top of the implant. This will allow for the customized crown to attach to the post. When restoring a single tooth, our team uses an E-Max or Zirconium dental crown to seamlessly replace the missing structure while leaving surrounding healthy teeth intact.
Missing Multiple Teeth
If you have multiple teeth missing, Dr. Oshin may suggest a bridge to “close the gap” between your natural teeth. What is nice is that implants will be placed to hold the bridge in place instead of putting crowns over your natural teeth to act as anchors.
When restoring multiple teeth, Dr. Oshin may recommend an implant-retained prosthetic as a simpler and more affordable solution. These appliances are similar in appearance to traditional dentures and bridges, but they’re designed to securely attach to your new implants, creating a much sturdier and more confident fit. They can be fixed in place or removable, depending on the patient’s preference. Either way, we know you’ll be amazed by how natural your newly improved smile feels!
Missing All Your Teeth
While it might seem like dentures are the only way you can effectively replace all your missing teeth, that’s not true. Implant-retained dentures don’t rely on suction or adhesive to stay in place. Instead, your implant dentist in Claremore will place the implants into your jawbone before a full denture is secured into place on top of the posts.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
There are a variety of factors that can determine the overall cost of your dental implant procedure, some of which include:
- The number of implants placed
- The materials used
During your initial consultation with Dr. Oshin, he will not only walk you through the process of getting dental implants, but he will also provide an estimated cost. Although dental implants are a more expensive option, it is a great long-term investment in your oral health.
