Keep reading to find out why dental implants in Farmington are one of the most reliable and long-lasting tooth replacements available.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants come with some advantages that you simply can’t get with other options. After receiving dental implants, patients enjoy these benefits:
- They are the only tooth replacement that preserves your jawbone.
- Because they fuse to your jawbone, your dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
- Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or even your whole smile.
- Dental implants are the only solution that restores your tooth root and the tooth.
- They allow for natural function and biting power.
- They maintain the health of your remaining natural teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Your dental implant journey begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Peters. Once he determines that you are a suitable candidate for the treatment, the implants will be surgically placed throughout your jawbone at precise, pre-planned positions. Thereafter, the implants will bond with your body in a process known as osseointegration so they can act as substitutes for the roots of your missing teeth. Then, your beautiful and strong new teeth will be attached to the implants.
Indications for Dental Implants
Implants can help replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full set of teeth. If you have been suffering with partial or full dentures, are missing teeth, or feel you need teeth extracted, do not hesitate to call to be evaluated for implants. Our team looks forward to talking with you about your restorative dentistry options, providing you with the information you need to make the oral health decision that is best for you.
Missing Single Tooth
Are you missing just one tooth? It’s still important that you get it replaced to avoid shifting or damage of your remaining teeth. Dr. Peters will use an implant-retained dental crown, which is custom-made using high-quality ceramics to give you a restoration that seamlessly completes your smile.
Missing Multiple Teeth
If you’re missing multiple consecutive teeth, we can use an implant-retained dental bridge to restore the gap in your smile. Using two dental implants on either side to anchor your prosthetic in place, Dr. Peters will be able to restore your smile’s function and natural appearance.
Missing All Teeth
If you’re missing all or most of your teeth, your best option is implant-retained dentures. This solution gives you a replacement for your entire smile with the security and function of dental implants. Additionally, those who already have dentures but are looking for a better feeling and functioning option can benefit from implant-retained dentures.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants come at a higher price than other options in tooth replacement, but they could not be more worth it. There is not a fixed cost of dental implants—so you will need to schedule a consultation with our office to find out what you can expect to pay. Dr. Peters will consider the health of your jawbone, how many teeth you are missing, where you’re missing them, and other factors to determine the cost of your dental implants. After this in-depth examination, he will be able to provide you with a fair and more precise estimate.
