Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials, usually titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They serve as a strong foundation for the attachment of replacement teeth, such as dental crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Dental implants are commonly used for individuals that are missing teeth. Dental implants replace one or more missing teeth. They offer several benefits, including:
- Restoring the function of chewing and speaking.
- Improving the appearance of the smile.
- Preventing bone loss in the jaw.
- Providing stability and preventing shifting of surrounding teeth.
- Offering a long-lasting and durable solution compared to other tooth replacement options.
Dental implant coverage can vary depending on the dental insurance plan. In general, dental insurance plans may offer limited coverage for dental implants, particularly if they are considered medically necessary. Cosmetic implant procedures may not be covered. It is advisable to check your specific dental insurance policy or contact your insurance provider to understand the extent of coverage for dental implants.
The dental implant procedure typically involves several steps:
- Initial consultation and examination: The dentist evaluates your oral health, takes X-rays or CT scans, and determines if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants.
- Implant placement: The dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. The implant is then left to integrate with the bone over a period of several months.
- Abutment placement: Once the implant has fused with the bone, an abutment is attached to the implant, which acts as a connector for the replacement tooth.
- Restoration placement: Finally, a dental crown, bridge, or denture is securely attached to the abutment, completing the implant restoration.
The cost of dental implants will vary patient to patient due to a variety of factors. The price will depend on the type of sedation dentistry used, the number of teeth replaced, and more. Inquire about our top of the line dental implants with Dr. Spath today to see if they’re a great fit for you.
