Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have three parts: the post (which mimics the natural root), the abutment (which connects the restoration to the implant), and the restoration (which is the visible portion). The implant post consists of titanium, a biocompatible material that bonds with bone tissue and firmly anchors the implant in place. As a result, your bite is strong enough to chew your favorite foods. In addition, the artificial root also restores blood flow to jaw and cheeks, preventing a common side effect of tooth loss—premature sagging of the face.
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants are exceptionally versatile and able to meet any replacement need ranging from one tooth to an entire arch. No matter the current state of your smile, we can help you find the solution that’s best for you.
Missing One Tooth
Replacing a single tooth is fairly simple. One titanium post is placed into the socket, and the abutment connects to an all-porcelain crown on top. In fact, we use porcelain for all our restorations with dental implants because this material resembles natural enamel in almost every way.
Missing Multiple Teeth
One advantage of an implant-retained bridge is that it doesn’t include removing tooth structure to place. Rather than anchoring to natural, healthy teeth, this kind of bridge attaches to a dental implant at each end.
Missing All Teeth
Full dentures have come a long way over the years, but they are notorious for slipping out of place. When paired with dental implants, dentures have a far more stable foundation to rely on. As a result, you can chew, speak, and use your restoration without using denture adhesives. With four to six implants throughout the jaw, you can have full confidence in your smile again.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Many complex factors are considered when determining the cost of dental implants. Although most patients qualify for dental implants, others may need additional treatments like a bone graft before they can safely undergo treatment. Other preparatory procedures include sinus lifts and periodontal therapy, which will increase the overall cost. Furthermore, the location and number of dental implants being placed can influence the price you’ll be responsible for paying.
It’s important to keep in mind that although dental implants have a higher price tag upfront, they can be considered a wise investment in the long term. Dental implants require less maintenance and offer more restorative benefits. Basically, the positives of this treatment far outweigh the initial cost.
