Dental Implants

Sophisticated, permanent fixtures that provide a natural-looking and functional solution for replacing missing teeth.

What are Dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth, we can restore both function and appearance with dental implants. An alternative to traditional tooth restoration options, dental implants can offer a more permanent and natural solution to enhance your smile and improve chewing and speaking. Unlike conventional crowns, bridges, and dentures, dental implants are supported by a titanium post placed into the bone, making them a permanent part of your mouth and mimicking your natural teeth in the way they look and feel. They do not move or slip along the gumline, and they require no extra maintenance beyond regular brushing and flossing. These innovative solutions for replacing missing teeth have been revolutionary in the restorative dentistry field, and we are proud to offer them to our patients here in Beaches Dental.

What benefits do Dental Implants offer?

There are many benefits our patients can enjoy with dental implants, including:

  • Replacements for missing teeth that look and feel natural
  • Permanent results
  • Improved functionality—restored biting, chewing, and speaking abilities
  • Prevention of future complications of missing teeth on jaw joint
  • No slipping or falling out
  • Easy maintenance—only
  • normal brushing and flossing required
  • Prevention of an imbalanced bite and unnatural wear of teeth

What are the different types of dental implant solutions?

Our doctors offer dental implants for the replacement of a single tooth, several consecutive teeth, and even an entire row of upper or lower teeth. These options can be categorized into three different types of dental implant solutions:

  • Single-Tooth Implants – Designed to replace individual teeth, this implant option consists of a single implant post capped with a custom dental crown. This restoration is often a good choice if you are missing one tooth or have multiple missing teeth that are not adjacent to one another.
  • Implant Bridges – If you have two or more consecutive missing or damaged teeth, an implant bridge may be an excellent solution. With this option, a customized dental bridge is held in place by at least two dental implants, making it much more secure than traditional bridges that are supported by natural teeth.
  • Implant Supported Dentures – Also called implant dentures or implant anchored dentures, this full arch restoration can be a great alternative to removable dentures. Generally secured by five to six implant posts, implant supported dentures can provide exceptional strength and stability when replacing a complete row of teeth.

What do dental implants cost?

The average price of dental implants at Beaches Dental varies greatly from patient to patient. Factors that can influence the total cost of your dental implant procedure include:

  • How many implants are placed
  • The specific restoration(s) utilized—crown, bridge, or denture
  • Whether or not preliminary dental treatments are needed to improve oral wellness
  • The overall complexity of surgery
  • Any insurance coverage offered through dental healthcare plans

When considering dental implants, it is critical to keep in mind that pricing is often an indication of the training and experience of a dentist, the quality of materials and technology they use, and the success they’ve had in achieving excellent results. For these reasons, a “low cost” should never be the sole reason for choosing a particular dental implant provider.

Financing for dental implants

If you are interested in dental implants but concerned about the overall expense, our practice partners with several healthcare lenders to offer dental financing options that fit virtually any budget. During your visit, a member of our team will be happy to get you started on the application process for the plan of your choice. Once you have received word on approval—which typically happens within minutes—we can move forward with scheduling treatment as soon as you wish.

Additional frequently asked questions about dental implants

At Beaches Dental, we know how important having a great smile is to looking and feeling good. That’s why our entire dental team are committed to providing the highest quality of service in family and cosmetic dentistry.

Generally speaking, dental implants are considered a safe tooth replacement solution when treatment is properly performed by a skilled and experienced dentist. Of course, as with any surgery, there is some degree of risk involved, making it imperative that you select a dentist who has received extensive implant dentistry training, utilizes state-of-the-art technology for precision planning and surgical placement, and has a proven track record of successful treatment—such as the doctors on our team. By choosing the right dentist, you can minimize potential risks and complications while maximizing safety and long-term success.

Typically, local anesthesia is all that is necessary to limit any potential discomfort during dental implant surgery. In fact, most of our patients say they experienced little to no pain at all—only slight sensations of pressure. Following treatment, our doctors often recommend over-the-counter medication should any postoperative discomfort manifest, though the majority of individuals have no issues with pain after the placement of their dental implants.

Just like natural teeth, dental implants require regular brushing and flossing, as well as professional cleanings at least twice annually. While the implant post and tooth restoration attached to the top will not decay, ensuring the surrounding gum tissue and other oral structures remain healthy is essential to achieving long-lasting results.

The success rate of implant dentistry is very high when treatment is performed by a qualified provider. That said, success is not solely in the hands of the dentist—patients themselves also play a role. Factors such as how closely recovery instructions are followed, how well optimal oral hygiene is maintained over time, and whether or not detrimental habits like smoking and/or tobacco use are avoided can all influence the long-term success or failure of dental implants. Therefore, choosing the right dentist and doing your part to ensure the best outcome is critical to success.

When it comes to candidacy for dental implants, age is not generally as important as having adequate jawbone density and sufficient oral wellness. In fact, our doctors have treated numerous patients who chose to receive dental implants or implant-supported dentures later in life. During your consultation, your dentist can determine if dental implants would be right for you at this time based on your unique situation.
