What is a Dental Implant?

Teeth are incredibly strong and durable, but sometimes they can fall out as a result of dental disease. When they do, they take the tooth root right along with them, which is an important part of your overall tooth’s structure. With dental implants, we replace both the root and the crown, ensuring a comprehensive approach to long-lasting tooth replacement. Once the implant is placed, you won’t even be able to recognize the difference between your natural and implant tooth!

Benefits of Dental Implants

Whether you’re comparing them to dentures or dental bridges, there is simply no other option that replaces teeth quite like dental implants. Not only do you replace your teeth to the fullest and secure the best looking tooth possible, but you can expect true longevity, durability, and functionality moving forward.

Additionally, dental implants have a 95 percent success rate, even after 10 years of use! This means you can maintain a youthful appearance, improve your biting force for eating the foods you enjoy, keep your jawbone’s shape intact, and enhance your overall health in the process. Dental implants are also incredibly easy to keep clean; simply practice daily brushing and flossing and make sure to visit our office every six months for a routine checkup. They are even cost-effective compared to other solutions thanks to their long-term benefits, so you won’t have to worry nearly as much about repairing or replacing them like other options.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Once we complete your consultation, we’ll have a far more detailed picture of exactly what needs to be done to restore your smile. Whether you need to replace single, multiple or all of your teeth, Dr. Johannsen and his crew can make it happen!

Missing Single Tooth

With a single implant, porcelain crown, and abutment to attach them together, we can restore your tooth to the absolute fullest. Once the implant has completed the healing process, we can begin designing your permanent crown. Dr. Johannsen always uses tooth-colored restorations to keep your smile looking as beautiful as it is functional.

Missing Multiple Teeth

If you have multiple missing consecutive teeth, you’re in luck. Our office can restore your smile using a pair of dental implants and an implant-retained bridge. The crowns on either end are affixed to their own dedicated implant, while a crown is fused in between them to fill the gap in your smile.

Missing All Teeth

When an uncomfortable denture just gets in the way, dental implants can make a huge difference. After strategically placing a series of dental implants throughout the jaw, your next denture, whether it’s full or partial, is sure to feel more natural, stable and be longer-lasting. You can even get your smile restored the same day as your surgery when you choose All-on-4, a revolutionary treatment for those dealing with severe tooth loss.

How Dental Implants Work

Our patients love their dental implants because of the newfound confidence it gives them to smile and chew the foods they enjoy. At Beacon Dentistry, our dentists will either place your implant(s) in-house or partner with a local specialist if needed. During the surgical portion, we create a small incision in your gum tissue and place the implant directly into your jaw. After sealing the gums, we give it several months of time to heal, then place a healing cap on top. This acts as a foundation for the permanent crown that comes later. Your treatment length can vary, especially if you’re replacing teeth with a 3-unit bridge rather than a single tooth implant.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

If you are put off by the cost of dental implants, keep in mind that they actually have the most cost-effective price thanks to their longevity and the fact that treatment does not involve additional teeth. While the cost of your treatment will vary on factors like the number of implants placed and whether or not you need preparatory treatments to make them viable, Dr. Novak and Dr. Johannsen will help build a treatment plan that fits your budget. If you’re ready to get rid of the gaps in your smile for good, give our office a call!
