Is your missing tooth impacting your daily life? Making you self-conscious?
A missing tooth can create misalignment in the jaw if left unchecked for too long. Your teeth will shift, trying to fill in the empty space. With dental implants as a durable tooth replacement option, you can say farewell to dentures or bridges. If you’ve lost teeth due to decay, gum disease or injury, give Neighborhood Dental Group P.C. a call today to find out more about the dental implants process.
Benefits of Tooth Implants
· They help maintain bone density in the jaw
· They allow you to eat and speak with confidence
· They preserve the natural contours of your face
· They stay fixed in place like natural teeth
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root and a prosthetic tooth replacement and looks just like a natural tooth. You can get a single implant, or you can replace all your teeth with implants. The combination of these two elements recreates the appearance of a natural tooth. Make double to check it is set in place to ensure the tooth will not come loose.
It is natural to be concerned about the cost of dental implants. This procedure costs more than some other tooth replacement options, but they are designed to be durable and long-lasting. Each patient’s implants cost will vary depending on multiple factors, such as the type of implants and how much specialized work is needed. Give Neighborhood Dental P.C. a call today to learn more.
The best answer is to directly contact your insurance provider. If you already know your insurance plan covers dental implants, the next step is to call our office. Our staff will verify your dental insurance, and inform you on several financing options we provide for dental implants and other dental procedures.
First, prepare your gums. In some cases, we need to extract a tooth, but only if it is necessary and this addition will not affect the outcome. Next, a bone graft is added for extra support if deemed necessary. Since an implant is surgically placed into the jaw, over time it will naturally fuse into place, similar to the root of a natural tooth. The dental implant will then be a supporting bas for a dental crown.
A dental implant is a long-term solution. If you maintain the health of your teeth and gums by brushing, flossing, and seeing a dentist then your implants can last from 10 years to a lifetime. If you’re interested in improving your smile, then give us a call today.
Most patients feel comfortable going to work the next day. After the procedure is completed and the gums have healed and recovered, (this will be around 4-6 months) you will take care of your dental implants just as you would take care of your natural teeth. This includes brushing and flossing. Make sure to schedule regular check-ups so we can monitor the health of your gums and the condition of your dental implants.
The best and fastest way to find out if you are a candidate for dental implants is to give us a visit at our dental office in Livonia for a free consultation, or call us to set an appointment for a free consultation.
