Dental Implant Procedures
Tooth loss is nothing to be ashamed of. Millions of Americans have lost teeth due to injury, tooth decay, or gum disease.
If you have one or multiple missing teeth, dental implants may be an option! Implants provide a no-slip alternative to dentures.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots implanted into the jaw. These implants serve as the foundation for artificial tooth replacements like dentures, bridges, and crowns.
These tooth replacements not only match your natural teeth and improve appearance, but they also stabilize your jaw bone which leads to serious quality-of-life benefits.
Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?
Most dental patients who are healthy enough to undergo oral surgery are eligible to receive a dental implant. There are, however, certain health circumstances that may disqualify you from receiving implants. Our dentists will evaluate patients on a case-by-case basis.
Maintaining good oral hygiene, returning for regular dental visits, and committing to the overall process of receiving a dental implant are all very important. Please speak with our dentists and ask any questions you may have about the procedure or aftercare.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants not only improve oral health, but they raise the patient’s overall quality of life. Benefits include:
- Improved appearance
- Improved speech
- Improved comfort
- Easier eating, especially of certain foods
- Increased confidence
- Overall oral health
- Ease of cleaning – brush and floss like normal!
The Cost of Dental Implants with Lakeview Dental Care
Lakeview Dental Care believes that the right to affordable dental care should be available to everybody. We work hard to minimize out-of-pocket costs for all our patients, regardless of whether or not they have dental insurance.
Procedure & Aftercare
Dental implant procedures vary on a case-by-case basis and can be completed in as little as one day, dependent on the type of implant. After consulting with our dentist, they will place an implant in the jaw. Once the implant heals, our dentists will place a dental crown – that’s it!
A question we often receive is “how long will my implant last?” When properly cared for, your dental implant should last a lifetime! Just like your other teeth, your implant will attract plaque and must be cared for. Regular brushing and flossing along with follow-up appointments are essential to keeping your implant – and overall oral health – in top shape!
If you experience any pain or discomfort following the procedure call us to speak to a dentist today.
