Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth

Dental Implant San Juan Capistrano, CA

Dental implants are becoming one of the most popular options for patients who need to replace one or multiple teeth. Our smile is usually the first feature someone notices about us. We all want to make a great first impression, and our smiles can go a long way in achieving this. 

There are several reasons a patient may need to seek out a solution to missing teeth. You could have been involved in a traumatic accident that causes an immediate need to seek teeth replacement. Your missing teeth may have resulted from a chronic illness or maybe as simple as not being able to keep up on your oral hygiene. 

No matter the reason for needing to replace missing teeth, you can talk to your dentist, and they will go over all the different options available to you. 

Why dental implants?

This is a great option for many patients because they are like natural teeth. Implants are secured in your gumline with a titanium screw. This makes them unable to shift or move inside your mouth. They allow you to chew any food without the fear of them coming out. 

The crown or prosthetic tooth is made from porcelain fused to metal. This makes sure your crown will last a lifetime. Your implants can be just one tooth or multiple teeth. If you need full mouth dental implants, you can have only four screws, and then strips of multiple teeth will be inserted into the screws. 

Implants can only be removed by your dentist, and they are cleaned just like you would natural teeth. You can resume your everyday oral health care routine by brushing and flossing regularly. 

Are implants expensive?

This is one of the costliest options to replace missing teeth. As with any dental procedure, you should contact your dental insurance provider and ask if they cover the cost of implants. Find out what types of solutions to missing teeth they do pay for, and you may have some decisions to make. 

If you discover you may have to pay for the implants completely out of pocket, you can discuss this with your dental office staff. They will be able to offer you either an affordable payment plan through them or offer you an outside low-interest finance company. 

Patients see the need to have their smile feel and look natural and are willing to pay the extra cost for the confidence this option provides. 

Talk to your dentist

As with any dental procedure you consider, you should always be open and honest with your dentist about what you can afford and what type of result you are looking for. They will offer you more affordable solutions and go over both the pros and cons of each. 

Always keep your regularly scheduled appointments with your dentist and remember to take care of your teeth in-between visits to ensure a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
