For people with a single missing tooth, or suffering from near total tooth loss, dental implants offer a lifelike replacement option that could last for many years to come. In today’s blog, we’re going to talk about how we replace lost teeth, and also look at our brand-new dental implant special, available only in February!
Our New Special
If you plan an appointment and treatment in February, your new teeth only cost $2,600. That includes not only the planning process, but placement, your temporary restoration, and your final implant crown, the entire process of replacing a missing tooth with a strong and secure new one. In addition, if you’ve lost jawbone tissue due to lost teeth and require bone grafting or sinus augmentation before proceeding with placement, we can perform these procedures as well at extra cost, ensuring your smile is ready for your brand-new teeth.
Dental Implant Placement
A bridge needs a crown or two to stay in place, and dentures rely on metal clasps and suction. While effective, these options often need replacement as the jaw ridge changes shape, a complication of losing your natural teeth. However, dental implants are actually surgically inserted into your jawbone. Through a process known as osseointegration, they bond with the jawbone tissue and act as new tooth roots. Not only does this mean they can last for several decades, if not a lifetime, but it also stimulates the growth of jawbone tissue. Your ridge doesn’t change shape, preserving not only your facial structure, but ensuring your new teeth or prosthetic is long-lasting as well. After placement, we will address the visible portion of your new tooth with a custom crown, which can absorb serious bite forces and blends with your smile seamlessly.
The Benefits of Addressing Lost Teeth
By replacing a missing tooth or teeth, you prevent the onset for misalignment, which often happens as remaining teeth drift from position. Preventing this misalignment also lowers the risks of tooth decay and gum disease, as thoroughly cleaning uneven teeth is difficult. Addressing tooth loss also keeps your bite from becoming imbalanced and spares your jaw joints the pressure of missing teeth, lowering the risks of both TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). Finally, you avoid the loss of jawbone density and mass, which helps you enjoy a full smile, a youthful appearance, and better oral health.
