Dental Implants 101


Dental implants are the solution to replace missing or damaged teeth. Dental implants are more stable than dentures since they are implanted into the gums, creating a sturdy foundation for chewing and speaking. We answer a few questions today about dental implants, but if you would like to know more, please call us to schedule a consultation.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a threaded titanium post that is placed inside the gums. After inserting the post, a dentist places a cap or crown to replace your tooth. The implant itself replaces the root, and this prevents shifting and bone loss from your missing tooth.

Do Dental Implants Look Like Real Teeth?

Dental implants look and feel like real teeth, and they will feel completely natural in your mouth. Dental implants also need cared for like your natural teeth. Regular brushing and flossing will ensure they last a lifetime. Ace Dental will match the color of your implant to your other teeth so no one will notice the difference.

What is the Possibility of the Dental Implant Failing?

The success rate of dental implants is very high (95% nationally). Ace Dental will go over your dental health and assess if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

How Long Does it Take For Dental Implants to Heal?

Placing a single dental implant can take as little time as half an hour, and replacing several teeth with dental implants can take several hours. In most cases, people can return to work the next day following surgery, however depending on how your body reacts to the surgery, you may need extra time to rest and allow yourself to completely recover.

What is the Cost of Dental Implants?

Depending on how many tooth replacements you need, dental implants can cost up to several thousand dollars, however over the lifetime of the dental implant, they may be more cost effective than replacing your teeth with dentures. If you lose a tooth and do not replace it with an implant or denture, you may end up causing more dental problems that will cost more to remedy in the long run.
