Frequently Asked Questions About
Dental implants are one of the most effective ways to replace missing teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, which can slip or irritate gums, dental implants are surgically embedded in the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve bone mass in the jaw, preventing the sunken facial appearance after tooth loss. Implants offer a natural-looking and long-lasting solution for people who are missing teeth.
Dental implant procedure involves placing a small titanium screw in the jawbone, which serves as an anchor for the new tooth. The first step is to numb the area with anesthesia to keep the patient comfortable during the procedure. Next, the gums are incised to expose the bone. The implant is then embedded in the bone, and the gums are sutured close. Over the next few months, the implant will fuse to the bone in a process called osseointegration.
Once this is completed, an abutment is placed on the implant. An abutment is a connector piece that attaches the crown to the implant. After its placement, an impression will be taken, which will be used to fabricate the crown that will be attached to the implant. In most cases, the crown will be made of porcelain, indistinguishable from your other teeth.
Yes, dental implants are generally safe. The implant itself is manufactured from titanium, which has been used in other medical procedures for many years.
Dental implants are a long-term solution for tooth loss, with implants lasting for at least 20 years or longer with good dental hygiene and proper care. While the implant itself may last longer, the artificial teeth (crowns, bridges or dentures) will need to be replaced every five to ten years.
The cost of dental implants varies depending on the number of implants needed and the type of restoration used. In general, dental implants cost between $2,900 to $3,600 per tooth. However, the total cost of dental treatment will also depend on factors such as the procedure’s complexity and the dentist’s experience. Visit your dentist for a consultation to get an accurate estimate.
This depends on your fund and level of coverage. Most health funds offer some coverage for dental implants. Check with your health fund before getting the procedure done to ensure you’re covered.
