Dental Implants: The Foundation for a Healthy Smile

Dental implants are screw-like structures designed to insert beneath the gum line (or into the jawbone). It requires healing time for them to fuse with the jawbone, and once they’re successfully healed, they can now act like tooth roots. Dental implants can often provide a strong foundation for new artificial teeth via abutment and avoid the risk of slipping since they are surgically placed underneath. They can offer many benefits, including keeping your dental health by replacing missing teeth. Our experienced team offers quality dental implant services as part of our comprehensive range of dentistry services. We will meticulously evaluate the teeth and mouth of the patient to determine a personalised treatment plan.

Implant Consultation

Our dental implant consultation provides patients with all the information they need to make an informed decision about the treatment process. The dentist will carefully assess the patient's oral health during this dental appointment. It involves carefully evaluating the jawbone density and asking about health history to determine whether they can undergo the procedure. They will also discuss the process, risks, and benefits of dental implants.

Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on a few factors, which include the type of dental implant the patient needs, the complexity of the procedure, and other individual circumstances. The dentist in our dental clinic can give an estimate during a consultation. But to discuss the average cost of dental implants, the patient may expect to pay between $2,600 and $3,900. Hills Family Dental Centre offers different flexible payment options.

Dental Implant Procedures

The dentist will inform the patient about the surgical procedure for the dental implants. In general, the process may involve the following:

  1. The dentist will provide a sort of anaesthesia to numb the area in the mouth and avoid pain during the procedure.
  2. The initial step involves incising the gumline to gain access and place the implant underneath.
  3. Once the dental implant is embedded, the gums will be sutured and allowed to heal for a few several weeks.
  4. The dentist will check the dental implant for osseointegration, or the process wherein the implants merge with the jawbone after three to four months.
  5. Once the dental implant fuses around the jaw bone, the abutment, or a piece connector, will place over it. The dentist will also take an impression of the teeth for artificial teeth.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are often made from medical-grade materials such as titanium, which can last many years with proper care. One study showed that they could support mandibular teeth for 10 to 30 years. However, the artificial teeth placed on top of the dental implants may only last for 5 to 10 years due to natural wear and tear over time. Still, the long-term lifespan that dental implants can offer makes them a significant teeth replacement.

Dentures Vs Implants

Dentures have been one of the most common alternatives for replacing lost teeth over the years. They are popular for their convenient use, being removable and easy to clean. However, they can lead to loosening and cause further bone loss. In comparison, dental implants address the problem of loosening as they remain intact over time. They also require less maintenance and can last longer with proper care. Their long-term benefits make them a good choice for restoring missing teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Dental Implants

Dental implants are generally recommended for individuals with missing teeth. However, not everyone can undergo the procedure. If you have an adequate jawbone density, do not smoke, and do not have medical conditions that may interfere with the recovery period, then you’re more likely to be a suitable candidate for dental implants. Since each case is different, it’s important to consult your dentist so they discuss your treatment options.

Here are some of the benefits of dental implants:

  • Closely resemble natural teeth.
    Dental implants are a type of tooth replacement that provides the closest restoration to natural teeth. It is because they not only replace missing teeth but also replace tooth roots. Allowing them to restore your ability to chew and bite or function like your real teeth.

  • Preserves jawbone.
    The jawbone may start to shrink over time without the support of natural teeth. This happens because there is no stimulation from chewing. Dental implants can provide enough strong anchorage to support the bone and muscle, which helps preserve your jawbone and improve your appearance.

  • No slipping.
    Because dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, they reduce the risk of slipping that dentures may tend to over time.

  • Reduce the risk of cavities.
    Dental implants are less likely to develop cavities or decay because they are made from titanium. Making them have a longer lifespan.

The number of days you need to rest following a dental implant process can be determined by the number of implant posts you received and your overall health. Most patients may need three to four days to recover, but we recommend taking a full week to allow your body to recover after the treatment. During this time, follow your dentist’s advice to help with your healing process, such as avoiding strenuous activities to reduce the risk of complications.

Before undergoing a dental implant procedure, these are some things you may need to prepare:

  • Stock some food.
    After the surgery, you will need to rest; hence it can be a smart idea to prepare some soft foods beforehand to help yourself during your recovery.

  • Arrange your transport.
    Talk to a family member or a friend who can drive you home, as some effects of the anaesthesia may disrupt your ability to drive.

  • Move your schedule.
    Resting for 24 hours is essential to let your body recover, so it would be good if you don’t hold on to commit the following day.

  • Get enough sleep.
    You should have 6 to 8 hours of sleep before the procedure so your body can respond well to the anaesthesia, and it may help you handle the procedure.

  • Ask your further questions to your dentist.
    Discuss any concerns you may have, such as sedation options.

Dental implants generally do not require special care other than proper brushing techniques. Although there are some additional tips on how to maintain them:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily.
    Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Try to brush gently around the base of the implant.

  • Floss daily.
    Flossing is vital to your oral hygiene, but be careful not to tug or pluck around your implant harshly.

  • Have a routine dentist appointment.
    Have regular dental check-ups so your dentist can evaluate your dental implant. They can also notice early problems and provide the necessary course of action before it worsens.

  • Avoid sticky and hard food.
    There is minimal restriction on food for dental implants. But please make sure to avoid chewing on hard foods to avoid damaging them.

  • Cut back on alcohol and smoking.
    These substances can halt recovery and increase the risk of infection, which may lead to complications.

It depends on the kind of plan you have with your health insurance. Some private health insurance provides cover for dental implants under major dental extras. It’s important to note that the health fund will only cover a portion of the treatment cost. It’s worth checking your policy or insurance plan with your provider to see if dental implants are included.
