Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are the only treatment to replace the entire tooth structure. This allows you to enjoy several advantages that aren’t possible with any other solution.
- They look and feel completely natural.
- They can last a lifetime.
- They have an exceptionally high success rate (around 98%).
- They can restore your teeth without forcing you to sacrifice surrounding ones in the process.
- They keep the jawbone full and healthy.
- There’s no slippage or looseness to worry about.
- You can eat and speak with complete confidence.
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants can replace any number of missing teeth depending on your needs:
Missing Single Tooth
A single tooth implant will be restored with an all-ceramic dental crown that’s been precisely designed to match your existing teeth. This method allows our team to preserve the health of surrounding teeth while giving patients the support and structure they need most. In fact, the result is so lifelike, after a while you may not even remember it’s a prosthetic tooth!
Missing Multiple Teeth
When replacing more than one tooth at a time, an implant-supported bridge is typically our recommendation of choice. This appliance will resemble a traditional bridge with one important difference – it’s designed to attach to your new implants, creating a much sturdier and more confident result overall. A fixed bridge can also help you maintain a youthful facial appearance and restore harmony to your bite.
Missing All Teeth
Dentures are commonly used to replace an entire arch of teeth. When they’re secured by dental implants, you won’t have to worry about them slipping or becoming ill-fitting over time. You’ll also be able to safely chew a wider variety of foods to maintain a balanced diet.
Start-to-Finish Dental Implant Treatment
After Dr. Earnest has determined that you’re the right candidate for implants, the first step in your treatment will be their surgical placement. A post will be inserted into the appropriate empty socket(s) in the jawbone and then allowed breathing room to bond with your natural structure to create a lasting foundation. In many cases, there will be a follow-up appointment where Dr. Earnest attaches an extension.
In this interim, our Seguin team will be happy to fit you for a temporary restoration so that any disruption to your everyday life is as minimal as possible. Once you’ve completely healed, you’ll return to our practice one more time so that we can create place a quality, custom restoration right on top.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
The final cost of your implants can vary depending on how many implants you get and whether they support a crown, a bridge, or a full denture. During your consultation, Dr. Earnest will help you form an accurate estimate so that you can plan appropriately.
