What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are complex restorations that are designed to replace the entire root structure of your tooth, not just the visible portion that makes up your smile. A dental implant consists of three parts; a titanium post, an abutment, and a restoration that attaches to the abutment. For over 50 years, dental implants have proven to be extremely safe and effective at replacing teeth and lasting a very long time in the process.
Benefits of Dental Implants
The benefits of dental implants are truly unique when it comes to tooth replacement. This is largely because the titanium post that replaces the root actually integrates with your existing bone tissue. Once fully formed, you can expect your replacement tooth to feel completely natural, especially when you’re chewing food. This is because the root is responsible for stimulating the jawbone, which would typically break down as a result of missing teeth.
Additionally, dental implants are the best long-term solution for missing teeth by far. Simply brush and floss like you normally would and your smile will remain not only functional, but radiant!
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
If you’re missing teeth and you have good overall oral health, chances are you can use dental implants to replace single, multiple or all of the teeth in your mouth at a time! Below, you’ll learn exactly how Tyson Smiles gets it done.
Missing Single Tooth
To replace a single tooth, an implant is placed inside of the jaw and given several months to heal. Then, an abutment, which connects the restoration and implant together, is placed on top of the implant. After a few more weeks of healing, a porcelain crown is placed on top and your smile is complete!
Missing Multiple Teeth
Instead of modifying existing tooth structure like you would for a traditional bridge, implant-retained bridges use a pair of dental implants to hold one larger restoration. This method can easily replace one or more teeth at a time.
Missing All Teeth
Whether it’s with a partial denture or full denture, our office can easily place a series of implants throughout the mouth so that they effectively provide a stable foundation for your customized restoration. Our office also performs the All-on-4 treatment, allowing you to have your implants and restoration placed on the same day.
Dental implants are becoming increasingly common in dentistry, but that doesn’t mean every dentist can perform the treatment themselves. Typically, dentists need to send patients to a specialist offsite, but not Dr. Barakat. When you come to Tyson Smiles for dental implants, your surgical and restorative phases all occur under the same roof. We believe this makes your overall experience far more convenient and removes unnecessary confusion from talking to multiple dentists.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
There are many ways to complete dental implant treatment, which is exactly why it’s so important to have a consultation prior with Dr. Barakat. During this appointment, we’ll confirm the number of implants needed, the type of teeth being replaced, and any preparatory treatments that make implants viable, such as bone grafts or periodontal therapy. These are all the most significant factors that influence total cost. Despite their high upfront price tag, dentists still laud them as the most cost-effective solution to tooth loss because of their longevity, functionality, and incredible esthetics.
