Common Questions About Dental Implants
Q: What are dental implants?
A: Dental implants are artificial teeth set into your alveolar bone using titanium screws. They are used to replace missing teeth. The titanium screws act as the new root. An abutment is added to the top of the titanium to attach to a traditional crown. A dental implant is an innovative, effective solution to replacing one or multiple lost teeth. Dental implants are designed to last. They look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Contact our experienced dental staff today to learn more about dental implants.
Q: Why do people need dental implants?
A: If you lose an adult or permanent tooth, the gums and jaw bone around that tooth will begin to decay. Over time, other teeth may shift or fall out as a result. By replacing the tooth with an implant, this decay can be prevented.
There are many reasons adults may lose their teeth and need implant replacements. Accidents might knock a tooth out completely or gum disease might slowly cause a tooth to come out. Whatever the reason your tooth is missing, TCD will offer the best solutions for replacement.
Q: How are dental implants different from dentures?
A: Dentures are removable sets of false teeth while dental implants are permanent installations. Implants generally replace one tooth at a time while dentures are used to replace all missing teeth. It is possible to use a few implants to replace multiple teeth if you are not missing enough teeth to justify getting dentures.
Some types of dentures may be used in combination with dental implants. This will depend on your specific situation and how many teeth you are missing. Ask your TCD dentist if dentures and dental implants may be best for you.
Q: How much do dental implants cost?
A: Dental implants can range from $1,500 to $2,000 per implant, not including the procedure cost. Additional costs based on material or other complications can range from $1,500 to $2,800, bringing the total cost of a single implant to be between $3,000 to $4,800.
Q: How long do dental implants usually last?
A: With good oral hygiene and regular cleanings, dental implants should last over 30 years after surgery.
Q: How do I know if I need dental implants?
A: If you do not want to get dentures, bridges, or crowns for missing teeth, you will need to get dental implants. Replacing the missing tooth is important, as leaving the gap can create a much bigger problem.
