8 Things You Need to Know before Getting Tooth Implants

If you’re considering dental implants, you probably have plenty of questions about whether they’re right for you. Find all of the answers you need to make the best decision.

What are dental implants?  

They are little titanium posts that are surgically attached to the jawbone to secure a bridge, crown, or denture. Once they are placed, tooth implants bond with the bone and a special dental connector is attached to the implant to keep artificial teeth in place.

Am I eligible for teeth implants?

Basically, anyone missing a single tooth, numerous teeth, or even all of their teeth can get implants.

What is the success rate of tooth implants?    

Implant dentists report a 95 percent success rate in healthy patients who practice good dental hygiene.

How long can I expect dental implants last?  

Dental implants can last for many years because they are not vulnerable to dental diseases like tooth decay. But they must receive proper oral home care, along with regular professional check-ups and cleanings, to stay strong and stable.

What is the All-on-4® treatment?  

This is a trademarked treatment that involves replacing all of the missing teeth in a jaw with just four implants. Implant dentists recommend it for patients with significant bone loss in the back of their mouth.

Can I get affordable dental implants, and are they covered by insurance?  

Typically, the price of replacing a single tooth with a dental implant is similar to the cost of using a regular fixed bridge. If price is an issue, some dentists accept insurance and many offer financing options to make affordable dental implants a reality.

How are dental implants used if I already have full or partial dentures?

Implants are frequently used to support and secure both full and partial dentures. They can be used whether the denture is removable or fixed.

Can dental implants be removed like regular dentures?  

No. See, implants are surgically attached to the jawbone to ensure that artificial teeth look natural, feel comfortable, and stay secure.
