8 Important Answers about Tooth Implants

Have you heard how dental implants can greatly improve your smile? Find the facts you need to know and see if this treatment is right for you.

1. What are dental implants?  

They are tiny titanium posts that are embedded into the jawbone to support a crown, bridge, or denture. Once these tooth implants bond to the bone, a connector called an abutment is attached to the implant to hold an artificial tooth or teeth.

2. What is the success rate of tooth implants?    

According to implant dentists, healthy patients with good oral hygiene have up to a 95 percent success rate.

3. Who is eligible for dental implants?

Basically, anyone missing a single tooth, numerous teeth, or even all of their teeth can get implants.

4. How long do teeth implants last?  

Dental implants can last for many years because they are not susceptible to dental diseases like tooth decay. But they must receive proper oral home care, along with regular professional check-ups and cleanings, to stay strong and stable.

5. What is an All-on-4®?  

This is a trademarked treatment where all of the missing teeth in a jaw are replaced with only four implants. Implant dentists recommend it for patients with significant bone loss in the back of their mouth.

6. How do dental implants help if I have full dentures or partial dentures?

Implants are frequently used to support and secure both full and partial dentures. They can be used whether the denture is removable or fixed.

7. Are dental implants removable like regular dentures?  

No, implants are solidly attached to the jawbone to replace teeth in the most natural and comfortable way.

8. Is it possible to get affordable dental implants, and are they covered by insurance?  

In many cases, the price of replacing a single tooth with a dental implant is similar to the cost of using a regular fixed bridge. If price is an issue, some dentists accept insurance and many offer financing options to make affordable dental implants a reality.
