What are dental implants?

Dental implants replace missing teeth.

If you have lost one or more permanent teeth due to periodontal disease or injury, Dr. Piero may recommend a dental implant.
Dental implants are permanent and stable replacements for teeth. Through a minor surgical procedure, a dental implant post is placed in the jawbone, which replaces the missing root to ensure a stable implant. After a brief healing period, our dentist will place the replacement tooth and fit it onto the top of the implant post. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.

A lifetime solution

Dental implants last years.

Restoring your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance can be wonderful for confidence and overall self-esteem. A dental implant is designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth. It may be the perfect option for anyone concerned about their teeth. With proper care, dental implants can be a lifelong solution for your smile, preventing periodontal disease around your natural teeth and the implant itself.

Pros

  • Dental Implants require little maintenance
    Because they are high quality, they can last a lifetime, and with proper care can prevent periodontal disease
  • Natural looking
    Implants are strong, stable, and function and feel like natural teeth
  • No strain on other teeth
    Unlike a dental bridge, an implant stands on its own support without placing a strain on surrounding teeth
  • Protect your jawbone
    Having an open space in your mouth where a tooth once was, puts your jaw at risk of deterioration. Dental implants not only stimulate bone growth they also preserve bone loss.

Cons

  • Surgery
    Because an implant is attached to the bone, it requires surgery and there are always some minor risks associated with this type of surgical procedure. Risks include infection, nerve damage, damage to surrounding teeth, and jaw fractures.
  • Time
    Getting a tooth implant is not something that can be done in a single visit to the office. The entire process can take several months from start to finish.
  • Cost
    The cost will vary depending on the type of implant and the conditions of the patient’s teeth and jaw. However, there is generally a high cost attached to getting a dental implant. Prices range anywhere from $2500 – $5000 per tooth.
