Dental Implants in Mount Dora, FL

Tooth loss can leave big gaps in your smile. Most adults lose one or more natural teeth because of congenital defects, dental disease, root canal failure, trauma, or wear and tear. If you’re one of the seven out of 10 Americans who has missing teeth, dental implants may be able to restore your smile’s former glory. Here are a few helpful facts about the dental implants procedure.

What Is Dental Implant Surgery?

Dental implants are small, metal appliances that replace the roots of missing teeth. The two main types of dental implants are called endosteal and subperiosteal implants. Endosteal implants are most often used; these are placed inside the jawbone to act as anchors for artificial crowns. Subperiosteal dental implants consist of a metal framework that rests above the jawbone but beneath the gums; these can be an option for patients whose jawbones cannot support a traditional implant.

What Is the Cost of Dental Implants Treatment?

The total cost of dental implants can only be assessed by a qualified dentist or oral surgeon after a thorough exam. Many factors affect dental implants cost, including implant type, the condition of oral tissues, additional treatments or surgeries to stabilize or prepare the jawbone, dental implants insurance coverage, and materials used in making the posts or crowns. Affordable dental implants provide benefits that other restorative treatments don’t, so most patients feel that they are well worth the investment. If you would like to discuss your dental implants cost or other facts about getting dental implants in Mount Dora, please contact our office.

Can Dental Insurance Lower My Dental Implants Cost?

The dental implants procedure is a cosmetic restoration, so most insurance plans don’t provide assistance. However, you shouldn’t give up on your smile just because you don’t have dental implants insurance coverage. We offer convenient and flexible financing for dental implants to help you manage your budget. Contact us for more information about the cost of dental implants with insurance.

What Steps Are Involved in the Dental Implants Procedure?

The process of getting dental implants is complex and may require a year or more to complete. Breaking the process down into individual dental implant procedure steps can help you better understand it. The following steps apply to an endosteal dental implants procedure.

  1. First, your dentist will prepare your jaw for surgery. If you don’t have enough viable bone available, this step may involve a bone graft.
  2. After drilling appropriately sized holes into the bone, your dentist will implant the metal posts.
  3. The dental implants will be left to integrate with the surrounding bone tissue for a period of three to six months; this process is essential to the procedure’s success.
  4. After your dental implants have fused with your jawbone to create a stable foundation, your dentist will access them again to add connecting devices called abutments; these are used to hold your crown in place. In some cases, a temporary crown may be applied at this stage.
  5. Finally, your permanent, custom-crafted crowns are secured into place, and your dental implants can function just like natural teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Having Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer many benefits that other tooth restoration options can’t match. When you become an implant patient, the following dental implants benefits are yours to enjoy.

  • Strong, stable teeth that allow you to enjoy your favorite foods
  • A restored ability to smile without embarrassment
  • Jaw stability and protection of neighboring teeth
  • Improved speech and pronunciation
  • Easier oral hygiene
  • An end to denture-related hassles

How Many Years Will My Dental Implants Last?

How long does a dental implant last? You can expect to enjoy your dental implants for many years. Dental implants are designed to perform just like your natural teeth, but they aren’t subject to decay. However, consistent oral hygiene is still important to maintain gum health and prevent infection. Many patients will discover that their affordable dental implants last for more than four decades. How long dental implants last varies, but take care of them and you could be smiling for a lifetime.

Is It Difficult to Take Care of Dental Implants?

Caring for dental implants is much easier than maintaining dentures and bridges. Dental implant care after surgery does not require a lifestyle change. Once your mouth is fully healed, you can simply brush and floss your dental implants as if they were your own natural teeth. Be sure to see your oral surgeon and dentist often for routine exams and professional cleanings.
