What are Dental Implants?

When a tooth goes missing, it’s not just the visible crown that disappears, but the root structure below the gum line as well. A dental implant replaces this root using a small titanium post that is positioned within the jawbone. There, it melds with the adjacent bone, and then it can be topped with a restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture, essentially bringing back the entire tooth.

The 4 Step Dental Implant Process

  • Consultation: Our team will examine your mouth, discuss your replacement options, and let you know if dental implants would be a good fit for you.
  • Placement: Once you are approved for dental implants, Dr. Casañas will surgically place your new roots into your jawbone.
  • Healing: It will take 3-6 months for your roots to attach to your jawbone, during which you’ll wear temporary teeth.
  • Restoration: When your mouth is ready, you’ll return to our dental office to have your new teeth attached to your implants.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Security: Implants are extremely stable because they are held within thick bone just like real teeth.
  • Beauty: With implants, no one will be able to tell that you have artificial teeth because your new ones won’t have any obvious attachments that are needed to keep them in place. To a casual observer, they’ll only see a beautiful smile.
  • Strength: All of your chewing strength will be restored with implants, allowing you to eat whatever you like.
  • Bone Preservation: Bone loss is common after tooth loss, but implants actively prevent this so that your face maintains a healthy, youthful shape.
  • Durable: Dental implants have an impressive 30+ year lifespan (compared to the 7–10-year average for regular bridges/dentures).

Who Can Dental Implants Help?

One of the best parts about dental implants is that they are so versatile. Whether you are missing a single tooth, all of them, or a number in between, our team can design a solution to perfectly suit your situation. When you come in for your consultation, we’ll discuss which of the following options offers the most direct way to help you reclaim a complete smile:

Missing Single Tooth

Instead of filing down the teeth near the missing one so they can support a bridge, we can instead place a single implant into the mouth and top it with a crown, leaving the remaining dental structure untouched.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Normally, a bridge designed to replace several teeth is stabilized using two crowns fitted over nearby healthy teeth. Instead, an implant bridge is attached to two implants, making it much stronger and more durable compared to a traditional prosthetic.

Missing All Teeth

All it takes is just four to six implants to secure a full denture to the jawbone to restore an entire row of teeth at once. Implant dentures are multiple times stronger than traditional removable ones, plus they allow patients to eat hard-to-chew foods that are usually considered to be “off-limits” for denture wearers.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of your dental implant procedure will depend on a few key factors, namely how many teeth you need to be replaced, what kind of restoration will be used, and the position of the implants within the mouth. We’ll cover all of these details during your initial consultation, and we’ll also discuss how you can use financing to break up the cost so that your treatment is easily affordable.
