Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth, offering a durable, long-term solution that looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth. Beyond just improving your smile's appearance, dental implants offer significant benefits:

  • Durability and Reliability: Designed to last a lifetime with proper care, dental implants provide a permanent solution for missing teeth.
  • Natural Look and Feel: Implants are crafted to match your natural teeth, enhancing your smile aesthetically and functionally.
  • Bone Health Preservation: By stimulating bone growth, implants prevent the bone loss that often occurs with missing teeth.
  • Improved Oral Health: Unlike bridges, implants do not require altering adjacent teeth, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.

Signs It’s Time to Discuss Dental Implants

  • Missing One or More Teeth: Whether due to injury, decay, or disease, missing teeth can significantly impact your oral health and self-esteem.
  • Difficulty Eating or Speaking: Missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures can affect your ability to chew and speak clearly
  • Jawbone Deterioration: The absence of natural teeth roots can lead to bone loss, altering your facial structure over time.
  • Dissatisfaction with Dentures or Bridges: For those seeking a more stable and permanent solution, dental implants can be an ideal upgrade.

The Ideal Candidate for Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a revolutionary solution for individuals looking to replace missing teeth, but they're not the right choice for everyone. The best candidates for dental implants typically share several key characteristics that ensure the success of the treatment:

  • Good Oral and Overall Health: Candidates should have healthy gums free of periodontal disease, as well as sufficient jawbone density to support the implant. Good overall health is also crucial to facilitate proper healing.
  • Non-smokers: Smoking can impede healing and increase the risk of implant failure, so non-smokers or those who can quit during the treatment process are ideal candidates.
  • Commitment to Oral Hygiene: Successful implant candidates are committed to maintaining excellent oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups, to ensure the longevity of their implants.
  • Patience for the Process: The dental implant process can take several months from start to finish, requiring a patient who understands and commits to the necessary time frame for successful osseointegration and healing.

What to Expect During Your Dental Implant Treatment

Initial Consultation

Your journey begins with a free consultation with Dr. Goodman-Tabari. This session is dedicated to understanding your dental history, assessing your oral health, and discussing your expectations. We utilize advanced imaging technology to plan your treatment meticulously.

Treatment Planning

Dr. Goodman-Tabari will develop a personalized treatment plan, detailing the stages of your implant process, including any preparatory procedures like bone grafting if necessary.

Implant Placement

The implant, a small titanium post, is surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as a new root for your missing tooth. This procedure is performed with precision and care, ensuring minimal discomfort and optimal outcomes.

Healing and Osseointegration

After placement, a period of healing allows the implant to integrate with the jawbone, a process known as osseointegration. This creates a strong foundation for your new tooth.

Abutment and Crown Placement

Once healed, an abutment is attached to the implant, which supports the custom-made crown, bridge, or denture. You can receive a fixed or removable denture depending on your needs and preferences.

Follow-Up Care

Dr. Goodman-Tabari and our team will provide comprehensive aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up visits to ensure your implant is healing correctly and comfortably.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, typically made from titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once in place, they provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants fuse with your jawbone, providing stable support for artificial teeth. This process, known as osseointegration, allows the implants to function similarly to natural tooth roots, offering unparalleled support for crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

The ideal candidate for dental implants is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is required to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.

Are dental implants safe?

Yes, dental implants are considered a safe and effective treatment for tooth loss. With a success rate of over 95%, implants are a well-established, safe, and trusted method of tooth replacement used by dentists worldwide.

How long does the dental implant process take?

The process can vary, typically taking anywhere from three to six months. This time frame includes the initial consultation, surgery to place the implant, the healing period, and the placement of the final crown, bridge, or denture.

Do dental implants hurt?

Most people report that the discomfort is minimal during and after the dental implant procedure. Local anesthesia is used during the surgery, and most patients find that implants involve less pain than a tooth extraction. Any post-surgery discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Dental implants require the same care as your natural teeth, including brushing, flossing, rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash, and regular dental checkups. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Can dental implants fail?

While dental implants have a high success rate, there are instances where they can fail due to factors like infection, inadequate bone support, or certain medical conditions. However, proper planning, oral hygiene, and regular dental visits can significantly minimize the risk of implant failure.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the number of implants needed and any additional procedures, such as bone grafting. At A-Z Dental Art Studio, we offer free consultations to provide you with a detailed cost estimate tailored to your specific needs.

Are dental implants covered by insurance?

Coverage for dental implants can vary by insurance company and plan. Our office is happy to work with you to understand your benefits and provide options, including financing, to make your treatment as affordable as possible.
