What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants comprise putting a metal rod at the jawline along with a designed false tooth or crown where the existing tooth was. Since the implant is associated with former teeth, it should remain a lifetime and maintain your gum line healthy.

Who is the right candidate for dental implants near me?

You are required to keep healthy gums and strong bones because they offer the foundation of a dental crown. These implants have the appearance and feel of regular teeth and can be used to bite or chew food or do anything for the normal functioning of the teeth. Patients having gum diseases and other jaw issues, need to treat them before going through any dental implant procedures. People with poor oral hygiene, diabetics, and habit of smoking are prone to have implants because of a higher risk of gum disease and infection.

What are dental implants made of?

 

A dental implant consists of titanium metal that is attached to the jawbone, an abutment or post that is fixed over the part of the implant that bulges out from the gums, and a crown offering a natural-looking appearance to the implanted tooth/teeth. The below part of crowns is generally made of resin material in whitish tooth color. Sometimes you may be recommended a porcelain tooth but its durability is not for the lifetime of grinding and chewing.

Dental Implant Procedure:

Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth to prepare a dental crown to replace the existing tooth. Your dentist will take the help of a shade chart to choose the close shade of your existing teeth for the visible part. In this way, the new tooth will match with the existing other teeth offering a natural appearance.

Two types of dental implants:

Endosteal implants:

It is implanted directly into the jawbone through a surgical procedure. As soon as the surrounding tissue heals, you will be required another one so that the post should be connected to the first implant. Lastly, dentists will attach the artificial tooth/teeth one by one or as a group like a bridge or a denture to the post.

Subperiosteal Implants:

Subperiosteal implants are constructed with metal frames for the implantation in the jawbone beneath the gum tissue. Once the gum tissue heals, the metal frame will become settled in the jawbone. The posts that are joined to the metal frame shoot out of the gums for scaling the artificial teeth.

How much are dental implants?

The dental implant cost may range from $1100 to $1300. Charges for the abutment and crown may be added separately. It may be from $1000 to $1500. So the total cost of the procedure may be $1995.
