What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a titanium anchor that fuses with the bone in a process called ‘Osseo integration.’ Once this has occurred, the implant can be restored with a crown or a bridge, with dental implant results often imperceptible from natural teeth.
How long does the process take?
Osseo integration usually takes around 3 months, after which time the restorative process of dental implants can begin. In some cases, a provisional crown can be employed during the integration period to eliminate impact on lifestyle in the lead up to the final restoration.
How long do dental implants last?
For the majority of clients, a dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement, with 40 years of worldwide research showing success rates of 85-98% depending on the dental implant use and location.
What type of problems can be solved with dental implants?
Dental implants are a solution to any degree of missing teeth, ranging from a single tooth, to a group of teeth or an entire mouth restoration.
Will I have to go without my tooth while the dental implant is integrating?
No. A provisional crown, bridge or temporary denture can usually be constructed straight away, so there is no need to go toothless during any stage of the dental implant process.
What is the cost of a dental implant?
The cost of a single tooth dental implant starts at around $3,800.
