What is Dental Implant Placement and Restoration?

Dental implant restoration is the process of replacing one or more teeth with dental implants. When teeth are missing, severely decayed, or damaged, dental implants provide a prosthetic option that looks and functions like a natural tooth.

A dental implant is a titanium post that resembles a screw with threads to help it fuse with the bone. It is surgically placed in the jaw where it bonds with the bone tissue. A dental implant acts as an artificial tooth root to support a crown. Our 3D CBCT machine allows us to diagnose and treat dental implant cases to the highest standard of care, even complex conditions.

Benefits of Dental Implant Placement and Restoration

  • Natural function. A dental implant functions as closely as possible to a natural healthy tooth, withstanding the same bite and chewing strength.
  • Improved smile. Dental implant restoration can transform your smile, giving you a natural look you can feel confident about.
  • Prevent bone loss. Dental implants prevent bone loss in the jaw that would otherwise occur in the absence of teeth, helping you maintain your natural facial structure.
  • Secure prosthetics. Implant supported dentures won’t slip out of place when eating or talking the way traditional dentures can. Implant supported bridges stay securely in place and won’t damage your healthy teeth.
  • Lasts a lifetime. Dental implants can last for 30 years or more. In most cases they will last for the rest of your life.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you need to replace anywhere from one to all of your teeth, dental implant restoration may be the right treatment option for you. Teeth that are severely decayed or damaged and need to be extracted can be replaced with natural looking prosthetics supported by dental implants.

If you have one or more teeth that have been missing for a while, the bone that supported those teeth may have deteriorated over time. You may not be a candidate for dental implants if the bone is not thick enough for the implant to be placed. However, with some preparation such as bone grafting, dental implant restoration may still be an option for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implant Restoration

How long does dental implant restoration take?
The process for getting one or more dental implants is typically done over multiple appointments. It can take a few months to a year in most cases for the entire restoration to be complete.
What are dental implants made of?
The implant itself is typically made of titanium. So is the abutment, the piece that is used to attach the prosthetic. In most cases the crown, bridge, or dentures are made of porcelain, which resembles natural tooth enamel.
What is the success rate of dental implants?
The overall success rate of dental implants is 98%. But the success of your dental implant restoration depends on a few factors, such as the experience of your dentist and how well you follow your dentist’s instructions for follow-up care.
How long will my dental implant restoration last?
Provided that they effectively fuse with the jaw bone, dental implants can last a lifetime. Once the bond is secure, it does not typically fail. The prosthetic portion of your implant restoration may need to be replaced in the future due to the natural wear and tear of chewing.
Are dental implants covered by insurance?
Some insurance plans cover dental implants but not all. Coverage for dental implants may be included in higher tier dental insurance plans. Contact your insurance provider for more information about your plan.
Are dental implants affordable?
If you don’t have insurance coverage for dental implants, there are ways to make the cost more affordable. Financing options allow you to make low monthly payments with little or no interest through some creditors.
Will my dental implant restoration look natural?
Many patients worry that artificial teeth will look fake, but dental implant restorations are the most natural looking option for replacement teeth. From a single tooth to a full mouth of dentures, implants provide a secure restoration that looks natural.
Does dental implant surgery hurt?
Anesthesia is used to ensure that the placement of your dental implants is comfortable. If you are feeling anxious about the procedure, we can provide additional sedation upon request.
