Benefits of Dental Implants
Your natural tooth has two distinct components – there’s the white crown that everyone’s familiar with, as well as a root that’s fully hidden beneath the gum tissue and jawbone. These tooth roots have a vital role to play, providing consistent stimulation to the bone; without them, the tissue is likely to start deteriorating over time. Dental implants succeed where other, more traditional tooth replacement services fall short because they start with the root, establishing a strong, enduring foundation for the new “tooth” and keeping the jawbone as healthy as possible. Additional benefits include the following:
- Implant-retained teeth are virtually indistinguishable from the originals in every possible way, including aesthetics, function, and overall feel. It’s extremely likely that no one around you will even be able to point them out.
- Dental implants can be cared for just like natural teeth with diligent oral hygiene and regular checkups here in Skokie.
- Implants offer incredible longevity – they are built to last for several decades, and some patients are able to enjoy them for the rest of their natural lives.
Indications for Dental Implants
Whether you've lost a single tooth or an entire arch, dental implants are a great option for most patients. Highly customized restorative solutions will be paired with the implants to seamlessly replenish a complete, confident smile.
Missing One Tooth
If there’s only a single gap that needs attention, an implant-retained crown is the right option. This all-ceramic “tooth” will fit right into place alongside natural dental structure, and it’s conservative enough that we won’t have to make any significant, damaging alterations to accommodate it like with a traditional bridge.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Have you lost several teeth in a row? An implant-retained dental bridge could provide the sturdy coverage you need most. While traditional bridges require nearby natural teeth to be filed down for support, this modern alternative relies on two placed dental implants instead – one on either side of the gap in question. The final result is attractive, healthy, and strong.
Missing All of Your Teeth
Implant-retained prosthetics can successfully replace several teeth at once or even an entire arch! They’re also more cost-effective because they only require the support of a small number of dental implants that have been anchored strategically throughout the mouth. All-on-4 is an additional option for patients who need comprehensive reconstruction; as the name suggests, the entire prosthetic can be sturdily anchored with just four implants.
Start to Finish Convenience
Because dental implants do have a surgical component (their initial placement into the patient’s jawbone), most general dentists have to refer their patients to separate specialists to handle this stage of the treatment process. At Dental Dynamics, Dr. Davidson has gone ahead and brought the experts straight to you instead, saving valuable time and helping you stay comfortable with a team you already know and trust. Dr. Yousuf is our periodontist, and Dr. Katsnelson is our oral surgeon. Both of them are available to help with even the most complex implant needs and guide patients closer towards their revitalized smile.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Replacing missing teeth with dental implants is a complex, multi-step procedure, and there are several distinct components that can affect the overall cost, such as:
- How many implants are needed
- Whether abutments (connectors) are necessary to secure the eventual restorations to the dental implants
- The style and number of custom-made restorations to replenish the implants
- If any health-minded procedures are required before treatment begins, such as bone grafting or periodontal therapy
Every patient’s needs are different, which is why the best way to determine a fair cost for your procedure is to attend an in-depth implant consultation with our specialists. It’s important to remember that while choosing dental implants for tooth replacement is certainly a financial investment, the lifelong benefits should far outweigh the cost. In fact, it’s very likely that your new “teeth” will only require minimal maintenance over the years, while dentures and bridges typically need to be repaired and replaced after much less wear.
