Your missing teeth do not only take a toll on your facial appearance but overall health as well. The tooth loss so caused leads to various health problems in the future. Fortunately, dental implants are an excellent procedure offering you a healthy, beautiful, and functioning smile that looks natural. A dental implant is surgically placed in your mouth to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants are replacement tooth restorations that render a firm foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth, custom-fabricated to match the exact appearance of your natural teeth. They are attached to your jaw under your gum line. Implants fuse into your jawbone, letting our dentist attach an artificial tooth-colored crown on it to act as the replacement tooth.
Dental Implants Cost
Our cosmetic dental office will provide you with all the cost information relevant to dental implants to help you plan for the payment. The cost of dental implants depends upon distinct parts of the treatment.
- For the surgical procedure, you will have to make a separate appointment with our dentist and pay a separate fee.
- You may also be suggested a healing period during the procedure known as osseointegration, and you are expected to pay for it separately. We advise you not to skip this step as it may increase your risk of dental failure.
- Once the healing process completes, our dentist will place a final crown or denture, depending upon your case, and it may require a separate fee payment.
- If you opt for mini-implants, it will cost you a quarter of the standard dental implants.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini-dental implants have a similar structure as regular implants; however, they are smaller in size. Unlike the conventional implants, they include a one-piece screw less than 3mm in terms of diameter and a ball-shaped end protruding from your jawbone.
Compared to conventional dental implants, these implants are placed via less-invasive techniques and are put over your gum surface when placed into the bone. The duration of the procedure is lesser than regular implants, and they do not require sutures either.
Dental Implants Failure
Although dental implants procedure has a high success rate, sometimes it may lead to failure as well. There can be different causes of dental implants failure.
Some dentists cut-short the diagnostic procedure while placing implants into your mouth. Such improper placement of dental implants causes their failure in the first place. Loose dental implants are yet another cause of the failure of implants. If the root form fixture of the implant is placed incorrectly, it causes loosening of the implants. If you have got your diseased teeth extracted, do not opt for dental implants immediately after the extraction as it may lead to implant infection and cause the failure of dental implants.
Our dentist may also suggest different options of implant dentures as a part of your treatment. They may either recommend two implants to be placed in a jaw and an overdenture to snap onto them or a complete set of implants, depending upon your case.
