A dental implant consists of three main components, all of which play an essential role in restoring your tooth. It starts with the titanium post (implant) that integrates with your bone and soft tissue. This is followed by an abutment, which acts as a connector for the restoration that sits on top. It also works to stabilize the tooth so that it fits evenly with your bite. To restore your implant(s), we can use single crowns, implant-retained bridges, and even partial and full dentures!
If you are missing teeth, have good oral health, and have sufficient bone tissue, you’re likely a candidate for dental implants. Below, you’ll find the many ways that you can confidently replace any number of teeth. If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to call the dental office so you can schedule an appointment!
Missing a single tooth? A dental implant can be placed inside of the jaw and given several months of time to heal from there. Afterward, an abutment is placed inside of the implant, the gum tissue is given time to heal around it, and a restoration is placed on top to complete your treatment.
To replace multiple teeth at a time, a pair of dental implants can hold a three- or four-crown bridge. Since the implants are providing the heavy lifting, you won’t need to modify existing tooth enamel just to accommodate the restoration. This is a large contrast from traditional bridges.
To replace all teeth in the top or bottom arch as well as teeth on opposite sides of the mouth, a series of implants can be placed around the jaw in order to hold a larger restoration. This denture is customized to fit with dental implants, offer better stability, and keep your bone tissue from breaking down over time.
As you consider treatment, you’re likely wondering what the final cost of your dental implant treatment will be. Since your needs are likely to vary from patient to patient, it’s important that you know how these needs can influence the price. For example, if you need to replace several teeth in hard-to-reach areas of the mouth, this makes the procedure more complicated. If you need preparatory treatments to begin treatment, such as a bone graft or gum therapy, this increases overall costs. If you need a full, implant-retained denture over a single porcelain crown, you’ll also need to pay more.
