Get a Better Look at Dental Implants

Tooth implants have become the standard and preference for restoring or replacing teeth. Created in 1952 by a Swedish orthopedic surgeon, tooth implants are dental aids that are surgically placed in the jawbone to which other dental aids like bridges, dentures, and crowns can be securely attached. These implants bond with the bone over a few months to secure these dental aids that improve the look and function of your smile. They are placed by implant dentists over a few visits and provide many years of dental benefits, such as:

  • The comfort, beauty, and function of natural teeth
  • Strength and endurance
  • No need to damage adjacent teeth for placement

The Tests for Treatment

Today, tooth implants are widely used to replace a single tooth, a number of teeth, or even all of the teeth. They are often recommended to restore tooth function and improve dental appearance. But according to implant dentists, your eligibility depends on these important dental factors:

  1. Professional exam – An implant dentist needs to examine your mouth and make a clinical assessment about whether a dental implant is right for you.
  2. Site – The location of the dental issue can affect whether or not an implant can be used.
  3. Bone amount – A sufficient amount of jawbone is needed to fully support the dental implant.
  4. Price – Since implants can cost more than other restorations, many implant dentists offer special financing and accept insurance to put affordable dental implants in reach. Once you look into your payment options, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with how affordable dental implants can be.
  5. Your individual preferences and needs – Regardless of how affordable dental implants can become, the choice needs to suit each individual.
