Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are designed to integrate with pre-existing gum and bone tissue. It’s this bond that allows the implant to stay inside the mouth for decades at a time. For example, clinical studies have shown dental implants to have success rates as high as 98 percent, even after a 10-year period. This proves them to be a long-lasting solution for tooth loss, not just an esthetically pleasing one.
Dental implants are not only the most natural-looking replacement option either. Thanks to the integration process, implants also feel the most natural when compared to other options. Chewing your favorite foods feels natural and there’s no worry about your tooth falling out as a result. As long as you practice daily oral care and visit our office once every six months, your implants can last a lifetime!
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants are extremely versatile and ideal for many complex full mouth rehabilitation cases. Consider your options below to learn which one may be best for you!
Missing One Tooth
Crowns cover a single implant, making them perfect if you just need to have one tooth replaced. The crown is made from porcelain, ensuring that it blends in with your smile and reflects light naturally.
Missing Multiple Teeth
If you’re missing multiple teeth in the same area of your mouth, we may be able to rebuild the lost structure through an implant-retained bridge. During this process, two implants will be placed on either side of the gap that we can use to anchor the new restoration in place. This treatment does not require buffing down natural enamel, unlike traditional bridges.
Missing All of Your Teeth
If your tooth loss is more significant, implant-retained dentures can rebuild your complete smile in a cost-effective fashion. This prosthetic will be anchored over a small number of strategically placed implants instead of having one implant per tooth.
All-On-4 is a specific type of implant-retained denture that is designed to replace an entire arch of natural teeth. As the name suggests, four to six implants are placed in the jawbone so that they can provide optimal support to the denture.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants are one of the most comprehensive tooth replacement options for a reason. They require a two-step process: the first being the initial placement and the second being the restoration of the implant. Both of these steps have their own unique costs depending on the number of implants your placing and the type of restoration being used. Cost can also increase if you require preparatory treatments to make implants viable, such as bone grafts or sinus lifts.
If you decide on dental implants, keep in mind that they are designed to be a long-term investment that lasts for many decades. You’re more likely to rely on their use many years after placement, rather than wait to have them replaced like you would bridges or dentures.
Regardless of which type of dental implants in Rock Hill are right for you, you can rest assured that our team will provide a beautiful, functional restoration to give you back the smile that you’ve been missing.
