What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is used to recreate the root structure of your teeth as well as the crowns. There are three parts to a dental implant: a biocompatible post, a tooth-shaped restoration, and a metal abutment. The post fuses with the jawbone through the process of osseointegration, and the abutment is used to connect the natural-looking restoration to the implant post, giving you a smile that looks and feels much more lifelike than a regular tooth replacement solution.

 

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  1. To begin the process, you can schedule a dental implant consultation with our Bowdental of Evanston team. We’ll confirm that you can get implants and go over the details of your treatment plan.
  2. Surgery is scheduled once all preliminary procedures are complete. We place our dental implants in-house.
  3. You’ll usually need to wait three to six months for your implants to join with your jawbone. After that, the metal abutment can be attached in a second, smaller surgery.
  4. Finally, we design the final restoration based on an impression of your mouth, and once it’s ready, we can place it on the implant posts.

 

Benefits of Dental Implants

People who are tired of wearing dentures or other traditional tooth replacements will quickly come to appreciate the many benefits that dental implants have to offer. They restore more chewing power and stability, letting you eat virtually anything you want. They can also provide stimulation to the jaw so that it doesn’t lose any bone density; the result is better jaw strength and a facial appearance that doesn’t sag as quickly. The average lifespan of dental implants is 30 years or more; this makes them an excellent long-term solution for tooth loss.

 

Who Dental Implants Can Help

Dental implants may be able to help you if you are missing any number of teeth and meet the following criteria:

 

  • You do not have gum disease.
  • You do not have a health condition that would stop you from having a minor surgery done.
  • Your jawbone is capable of joining with and supporting dental implant posts.
  • You are willing and able to commit to the decades long dental implant process.

 

Below are some of the circumstances that dental implants can help with.

 

Missing One Tooth

One dental implant can be inserted into your jaw where a tooth’s root used to be. Once your mouth heals and the abutment has been placed, we can connect a dental crown made out of tooth-colored materials to the implant post in order to recomplete your smile in a seamless, natural-looking way.

 

Missing Multiple Teeth

We can fit a dental bridge onto a pair of dental implants in order to replace three to four teeth in a row. Implant bridges have an advantage over traditional bridges because there’s no need for us to make any changes to existing tooth enamel in order to secure the restoration in place.

 

Missing All Teeth

It is easier than you think to support dentures with dental implants. We only need four to eight implant posts to hold an entire arch of new teeth in place. Implant dentures are flexible enough to be either removable or fixed depending on your dental needs or your personal preferences.

 

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implants may be more expensive than other tooth replacement solutions at first, but in the long term, the cost is balanced out by the exclusive benefits implants have to offer as well as the fact that they don’t have to be replaced as often. The cost of dental implants is something you can only know for sure after you’ve had a consultation; we’ll discuss the factors that can change the amount you pay after we’ve examined your smile.
