One of the best solutions for adult tooth loss is a dental implant. Dental implants have many benefits over other solutions like dental bridges. Not only do they usually last longer than other dental solutions but they also better mimic the natural form and function of the lost tooth. We are implant specialists in Lawrence Massachusetts.

Dental Implant Q & A

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a synthetic tooth that replaces a lost adult tooth. Unlike our primary (baby) teeth, when you lose an adult tooth, it is gone for good. Dental implants work by attaching a dental crown to an implant post that is surgically placed in the mouth. Because of this dental implants have some benefits over other dental solutions like dental bridges. But most importantly, dental implants mimic the natural look and feel of a healthy tooth.

How Do Dental Implants Compare To Dental Bridges?

A dental implant can last up to fifteen or more years depending on how you take care of your teeth. By comparison, most dental bridges are replaced every 5 to 7 years. Dental bridges also put extra pressure on the surrounding teeth. Because a dental bridge is a false tooth that is held in place by the surrounding teeth, it often requires those teeth to be altered as well even if they were perfectly healthy. For example, dental bridges frequently use dental crowns to anchor the false tooth or teeth in place. Because dental implants replace the entire tooth (both the crown and the root), an implant does a better job of preserving your smile and facial structure. Dental implants also have a very high 10-year success rate.

What Is The Process For Getting A Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a surgical process that requires multiple dental visits over time. Your first appointment will likely be a simple consultation with your dentist or other provider. Scans and X-rays are often needed to make sure your mouth and jawbone can support the dental implant. In some cases, bone grafting might be necessary to ensure that your jaw bone has the density needed to support an implant. Otherwise, most patients usually have their implants placed 1-2 weeks after their initial consultation. After a healing process, the dental crown can be attached to the dental implant post.

How Do You Pay For Dental Implants?

Unfortunately, many dental insurance providers do not provide coverage or do not provide full coverage for dental implants. Because of this, many dentists provide other payment options including dental financing or payment plans. It is important to discuss what is available with your dental provider.

What Are Permanent Dentures or Implant-Supported Dentures?

When we think about dental implants we often think about single teeth replacement treatments. However, many dental offices provide permanent non-removable dentures that are a form of dental implants. Unlike implants that use a single implant per tooth, implant-supported dentures use a small number of implant posts to install a full replacement of an arch of teeth. Our office works with other dental offices in the area that provide Hybridge Dental implants. If you are interested in learning more, please contact us.
