Dental implants are a natural-looking tooth replacement option that is permanently implanted directly into the patient’s jawbone. The result is a stunning, attractive and highly functional way to repair your smile and your self-confidence.
Patients with dental implants typically report the following benefits: a more aesthetically pleasing smile, improved oral health, better speech, stronger bite, increased confidence, and freedom to once again eat the foods they love.
Dental implants are highly recommended for patients with one or more missing teeth and can provide a superior alternative for patients that would normally only be able to use dentures. However, patients that have been missing teeth for a significant amount of time may need supplemental procedures before dental implants can be placed.
Denture wearers often have problems with their device moving around in their mouth, becoming loose, or “floating.” This can make it difficult to eat, smile, and speak. For patients who are dealing with these problems, dental implants help restore normal tooth function and appearance. Additionally, dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that can help patients retain muscle and healthy bone in the jaw.
First, a small titanium fixture is attached directly into the jawbone. Next, a middle piece called an abutment is attached and the doctor begins carefully crafting your replacement tooth. And finally, the crown (or artificial tooth) is placed on the abutment.
The result is a tight-fitting, stable, and natural-looking replacement tooth that allows you to speak and eat with confidence.
On average, dental implants can cost between $1,000 and $5,000. Please see our cost and financing page for more information about our many great payment options.
Here at Royal Dental Care, we believe that each of our patient’s dental needs are unique. Consequently, each patient must have a consultation so that a doctor can examine your mouth and answer any questions you may have.
However, in general, patients should practice good dental hygiene, eat properly, limit sugars, and avoid tobacco products.
One of the biggest advantages of dental implants is that your oral hygiene routine need not be altered. However, patients should be prepared to visit a dentist, in addition to brushing and flossing their teeth regularly.
Good bone density in the jaw area is necessary to support a dental implant. If a patient doesn’t have solid bone density in the appropriate areas, a supplemental procedure like bone grafting may be required.
During this relatively simple procedure, bone tissue is added to the jaw to create the proper density and volume required for a dental implant. Only a qualified doctor can determine if your jawbone density is adequate for dental implants. Please see our Supplemental Procedures page for more information.
Your first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our helpful staff members. A consultation will allow one of our qualified and experienced doctors to examine your mouth and help them determine if dental implants are a good option for you. This appointment will also give you a chance to ask any questions you may have.
