Benefits of Dental Implants
Unlike bridges or dentures, dental implants replace the missing tooth’s entire structure, which includes the root portion. The root is essential to making your tooth feel like a true replacement tooth. Since bridges and dentures only replace the visible crown portion of teeth, they never feel quite as natural as they could be, especially when compared to dental implants. Eating the foods you love as well as smiling and laughing to those around you is never inhibited by your replacement teeth.
Furthermore, dental implants last longer than any other replacement option and require no special maintenance compared to natural teeth. With daily oral care and routine dental appointments, your new smile should last between 25 years and a lifetime.
Indications for Dental Implants
The beauty of dental implants is that it’s incredibly easy to fit them with multiple types of restorations. This includes both bridges and dentures, but it also includes truly revolutionary appliances. Keep reading to learn more about your options!
Missing One Tooth
To replace one tooth, a single titanium implant is placed inside the jaw. Then, an implant-retained crown is placed on top. Both components are attached via an abutment, which is a small metal connector that keeps the porcelain crown stabilized. We use porcelain because of its durability and esthetic qualities.
Missing Multiple Teeth
To replace multiple teeth, a pair of dental implants can be used to hold a bridge. If you want to avoid removing natural tooth structure, which is commonly done with traditional bridges, you’ll likely prefer an implant-retained solution. In most cases, either a three- or four-crown bridge can be held via dental implants.
Missing All of Your Teeth
Both full and partial dentures can be modified to fit with dental implants. Patients who are tired of their current denture slipping and shifting out of place can expect improved stability, more natural esthetics, and easier maintenance, especially if they choose a fixed option. However, implant-retained dentures can also be made to be removable if preferred.
The All-On-4 dental implant procedure allows us to give patients their new smile the same day as their implant surgery. Essentially, one restoration is placed on top of four dental implants strategically placed throughout the jaw. These implants are placed to maximize the amount of bone volume currently present, allowing for a restoration to be placed immediately after surgery.
Mini Dental Implants
Do you still want dental implants but fear that your jawbone has become too deteriorated to hold them? Mini dental implants are half the size of traditional dental implants, meaning they are much easier to place inside of the diminished alveolar bone. They are minimally invasive, so you don’t even need extensive surgery to have them placed!

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants are typically more expensive than other tooth replacement options, but the exact cost of your treatment will likely vary depending on your needs. For example, the number of implants you need, the type of restoration you use, and preparatory treatments designed to make dental implants viable will all influence your final cost. With that said, dental implants are largely seen as the most cost-effective tooth replacement option because of their longevity, function, and esthetics. They are often lauded as a long-term investment for these reasons.
