Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Root to Crown: With a dental implant, a small titanium post is placed into the jawbone to create a prosthetic tooth root. This provides a stable foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture, meaning a patient never has to worry about their new teeth shifting or breaking unexpectedly.
  • Lifetime Solution: With standard oral hygiene, a dental implant can easily last for about 30 years or more.
  • High Success Rate: Dental implants are successful for 95-98% of patients.
  • Enhanced Esthetics: Because dental implants are always topped with custom-made restorations and don’t require any additional attachments to stay in place, they have a natural appearance that other restorations simply can’t match.
  • No Damage to Other Teeth: Unlike with traditional bridges and dentures, remaining healthy teeth don’t have to be altered at all when implants are placed, leaving the rest of the smile untouched.

Indications for Dental Implants

Thanks to their versatility, dental implants can be used to help patients missing any number of teeth. After confirming that a patient has good dental health and enough strong jawbone to support the new roots, our dentists will help them choose from one of the following restorative options:

Missing Single Tooth

A dental implant root can be used to support a single crown that is placed between two healthy teeth without them needing to be adjusted at all. Whether it’s a front tooth or one in the back, an implant can still provide a reliable solution.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Bridges and dentures can be secured within the mouth using just a small number of implant roots. Compared to traditional removable prosthetics, implant-retained ones not only have a stronger hold, but they can be trusted to last much longer as well.

Missing All Teeth

All it takes is just four to six dental implants to anchor a full denture that restores an entire row of teeth at the same time. Implant dentures are smaller and leave more room in the mouth compared to regular ones, creating a more comfortable fit, and they also bring back much more of a patient’s bite strength, enabling them to enjoy a wider variety of foods.

How Dental Implants Work

Dental implant and smile models

The dental implant procedure is usually carried out over the course of two basic phases: placement and restoration. First, the new roots are surgically positioned within the jawbone, and after a healing period, the new teeth are attached to them. Unlike other dental offices in the area, we are able to complete both phases here at SPF Dental Care. This one-stop approach is not only much more convenient for patients, but it also ensures that they get to work with the same dentist and team that they trust the entire time, making for a smoother and less stressful experience overall.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Every dental implant procedure is custom-designed by our dental team based on the unique needs of a patient, and because of this, the cost of the treatment can vary quite a bit from person to person. Everything from the number of implants needed to the type of restoration used can affect the final price. While dental implants do tend to cost more upfront compared to regular bridges and dentures, they are an investment that can be expected to last for decades. Compared to the typical five to seven year lifespan of traditional replacements, implants can often endure for 30 years or more, which actually helps patients save money over time.
