Frequently Asked Questions about
There are a few factors that dentists take into consideration to determine if a patient is a good candidate for single implants.
- Good oral hygiene.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for any dental procedure, but it is crucial for implants, as they require a clean and healthy environment to heal properly.
- Adequate jawbone.
Adequate jawbone density is necessary to support the implant, and we can determine this through X-rays and other imaging tests. Patients with inadequate bone need bone grafts before placement of implants.
- Healthy gums.
Active gum disease causes inflammation and infection, compromising the healing and fusion of the implant to the bone. This can eventually lead to implant failure.
- Good overall health.
Individuals with certain chronic conditions may not be good candidates for implants due to the increased risk of complications.
If you’re considering getting a single tooth implant, talk to your dentist to see if you’re a good candidate.
Patients must have enough bone to support a single implant. Otherwise, the implant will not be able to fuse with the jawbone and will eventually fail. Patients who have insufficient bone need a bone graft to build up the necessary support for dental implants. With a bone graft surgery, new bone is added to the jawbone, and given time to fuse with it. The resulting bone will provide a strong foundation for an implant.
If you are missing teeth and are considering dental implants, talk to your dentist about whether or not you need a bone graft.
A single dental implant has several advantages over other tooth replacement options.
- An implant is a long-term option that will not need to be replaced as often as dentures or bridges.
- An implant looks and functions like a natural tooth, so there is no need to worry about your appearance or eating and speaking habits.
- An implant is surgically embedded in the jawbone, making it stable and secure.
- An implant does not require the healthy adjacent teeth to be altered in any way, as is necessary with bridges.
- Implants can last a minimum of 10-20 years, or even more, with proper care.
For all these reasons, single implants are often the best option for those missing one or more teeth.
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. However, as with any surgery, there are some risks involved. The most common complications include pain, bleeding, and infection at the implant site. In rare cases, the implant may damage the nerves in the area or cause a sinus perforation. These complications are usually mild and can be easily managed. However, more severe complications can occur if the implant is not placed correctly. This is why it is essential to consult with a qualified dentist before getting an implant.
The cost of a single dental implant can vary depending on some factors, such as the type of implant used, the implant’s location and the dentist’s experience. In general, however, the cost of dental implants begins at $4,500.
Many dental insurance plans will cover at least a portion of the cost of implants. For the rest, the patient needs to pay out-of-pocket. Various financing options are available to help make implants more affordable, as well as third-party financing companies that offer loans specifically for dental procedures. Patients should speak with their dentist to learn about the cost of treatment and their payment options.
