Dental Implant Facts and Fundamentals

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a tooth replacement system in which a metal post or frame is affixed surgically to the jawbone that lies underneath the gums. Once this post is put into position, a replacement tooth can be mounted on top of it. In order to determine whether or not dental implants are appropriate in a given situation, it is important to learn as much as possible on the topic, including the dental implants cost.

The fact that dental implants are intended to fuse directly and completely onto a patient’s jawbone means they have the ability to serve as an extremely stable foundation for replacement teeth, which are unable to shift around or become dislodged in the mouth, a fact that makes speaking and eating much more comfortable and worry-free. Crowns that are placed atop implants enjoy sturdiness, and they feel much more natural in the mouth than some of the more traditional types of replacements.

It is often the case that conventional dentures just do not provide the level of comfort or practicality desired because of existing ridge problems, sore spots in the mouth, or other issues specific to the patient. Further, bridges need to be secured to existing teeth on both sides of the gap, and this often requires that those teeth be ground down. Dental implants involve no such preparation, giving them a distinct advantage in the eyes of many.

Good candidates for dental implants are those who have healthy gums as well as sufficient bone density to support the post structure. Patients receiving implants must be dedicated to proper dental care so that the implant system maintains its integrity over the long term. While the dental implants cost is typically higher than that of other types of tooth replacement, and insurance carriers rarely cover a large proportion of the expenses involved, the benefits of this option make it more than worthwhile to many dental patients.
