Dental Implants FAQ

Dental implants offer a replacement for missing teeth. They are not actually teeth but a prosthesis used in replacing missing teeth, which are small titanium posts inserted into the jawbone. On top of that, a crown, fixed bridge, partial denture, and full denture can be attached. It takes a few weeks to few months for the implants to integrate with your bones. After the implant integrates solidly with the bone, an abutment is attached to the implant to provide the proper transfer of forces to the implant and for alignment with the rest of the teeth.. Finally, a crown is screwed on to the abutment.

Anyone who is missing a tooth or multiple teeth can get dental implants. An ideal candidate must exhibit good oral health and have enough bone structure to accommodate implants. Schedule a complimentary consultation with our dental implant expert doctors at Accu Dental to learn whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Dental implants can replace teeth lost to decay, gum disease, or accidents. They can potentially last for a lifetime and improve appearance, confidence, and the capability to eat your favorite foods and continue your active lifestyle without the need for a removable attachment or a dental bridge. Implants are made of titanium metal and won’t decay or rust with time.

Generally the expense required to replace a single tooth with a dental implant is about the same as replacing it with a fixed bridge. Some insurance plans may cover dental implant treatment. The cost of the implants also depends on the patient’s needs, bone quantity and region. We offer affordable dental implant solutions with third party financing options. Our treatment coordinators at Accu Dental can give you a no obligation quote along with the complimentary implant consultation with our implant doctors.

Dental implant treatment is regarded as one of the safest treatment options in the field of dentistry. It is the only method of restoring teeth that stimulates natural bones underneath the missing tooth. However, any medical procedure can have some problems. Therefore, choose a knowledgeable, trained expert implant dentist who can minimize any complications and offer successful treatment. You must discuss your health history with your dentist, plus any habits that can affect the treatment.

Dental implant treatment is not a painful procedure. However, you will feel a little discomfort. For patients who are anxious about the treatment, you have nothing to worry about as you can be fully or partially sedated or numbed with the help of anesthesia. Our implant dentists will keep your comfort in mind with the goal of the best implant treatment outcomes.

If you take good care of your dental implants, they can last for decades. Brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly for check-ups.
