What Is a Dental Implant?A dental implant is a replacement tooth designed to mimic the whole tooth structure. We insert a titanium “root” into the bone of your jaw that acts as a support to the crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants will look, act, and feel like a real tooth and last a lifetime if cared for properly. Dental Implants will help you to:
- Replace missing teeth.
- Protect facial structure.
- Enable natural speech.
- Stop shifting in its tracks.
- Prevent bone density loss.
- Sturdiest tooth replacement.
- Support a healthy bite and jawbone.
Why Get Dental ImplantsIf you’re missing any amount of teeth, implants are an ideal solution to help not only restore your visible smile but also bolster your total oral health and facial structure as well. Here are some reasons to consider implants over other methods of tooth replacement.
They Last a Long Time:A dental bridge will only last you around 10 years or so, but your implants will likely last you two to three times as long. Because we use titanium that integrates with your jawbone, your implants will act like your natural teeth. However, rest assured that all implants are non-toxic and will not be rejected by your body.
They Act Like Natural Teeth:This is one of the very best benefits of dental implants. Most people who get them can’t tell the difference between their natural teeth and the implant. You will be able to have full chewing power and can eat, brush, and flow completely normally.
They Prevent Further Dental Issues:When you are missing a tooth, you run the risk of other dental problems like:
- Bone loss.
- Gum disease.
- Facial sagging.
- Further tooth loss.
Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?Most anyone is a good candidate for implants. The best candidates will have:
- Healthy gums.
- Mature and healthy jaw bone.
- Generally good oral health.
- At least one missing tooth.
Why Choose Us?No two smiles are the same, so the dental implant process is different for every person. However, If you’re ready to replace your missing tooth or teeth with a permanent and realistic solution, we at East Village Dental would love to help make your smile dreams come true. When you arrive at your consultation, feel free to ask all the questions you have. We are here to help you feel as confident as possible about your choice to get implants. We will go over your personal timeline of events, as well as how much the procedure will cost. The best technology for accessing patients for Dental implants is a CBCT (Cone beam Computed tomography). These machines are very expensive, and most offices do not have one. Going to a third party site costs $200-$400 and requires an extra appointment. At East Village Dental, we do have the technology on site and it is complimentary as part of our Implant consultation appointment.
Find Out if Dental Implants Are Right for YouThe decision to get dental implants is not a small decision. It takes a large investment of time, energy, and money. However, with a 95% success rate, your implants should help improve every aspect of your life.
