Overview

Dental implants are metal posts or screws that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow our dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them.

 

What is the cost? Dental implants are usually more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, and most insurance carriers typically cover less than 10 percent of the fees, however, implants last longer and produce a more natural feeling of a tooth. If you’re interested in replacing a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants may be an option for you. Most people are good candidates for implants.

 

A good candidate should have the following: Healthy gums. Enough bone to anchor the implants in the jaw: some people who have bone loss still can get implants, but first the bone must be rebuilt using special procedures. A commitment to care of the implanted teeth and surrounding gums: daily brushing and flossing are essential as well as regular visits to the dentist for follow-up

 

Some people may not be good candidates for implants. They include: Young people whose jawbones have not stopped growing. Pregnant women. Heavy smokers: smoking hinders healing in the mouth. It can reduce the likelihood of a successful implant. Alcohol or substance abusers who are not prepared to follow the dentist’s instructions after placement of the implant, such as no smoking, and returning for follow-up. People with various chronic diseases and/or systemic problems.
