What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed below the gumline and into the jawbone to replicate the missing root structure of teeth. Because the material is biocompatible, it’s able to undergo a process called osseointegration, where it fuses with the jawbone. This gives the area adequate stimulation and blood flow to keep it from deteriorating over time. It also offers the permanent restoration (a crown, bridge, or denture) a strong and unwavering foundation to be attached to.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  • The Consultation: The first step of every dental implant treatment is a consultation, which involves a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, and medical history, as well as a discussion about your goals throughout this journey. Based on our evaluation, we’ll be able to determine if you’re a good candidate and develop a customized treatment plan and timeline that we can walk you through, so you know exactly what to expect.
  • Dental Implant Surgery: Because we’re able to complete the entire procedure in-office, you won’t have to worry about being referred out for the next step in your treatment, your placement surgery. Dr. Oshidar will surgically place your implant posts below the gumline by creating a small window in it.
  • Osseointegration & Abutment Attachment: Following your surgery, your implants will undergo a process called osseointegration, stabilizing them by fusing with the jawbone. This typically takes place over the following three to six months after your placement. Then, our team will call you back into our office to attach abutments, which are small, metal connector pieces, to the tops of the implant posts.
  • Securing the Final Restorations: After the gums have healed around the abutments and your final prosthetic has arrived at our office from the dental laboratory, our team will finish your treatment by attaching it to your implants and completing your smile.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

Whether you’re missing a single, several, or all of your teeth, dental implants can be combined with any type of prosthetic to offer security for your replacement teeth, making them an incredibly versatile treatment. Once we examine your mouth, we’ll be able to let you know which of the following pathways we recommend to repair your smile.

Missing One Tooth

For a single missing tooth, we can place one dental implant below the gumline and into the jawbone, which will fuse with the bone. We can then secure a free-standing dental crown to it, eliminating the need to alter the surrounding teeth so we can preserve more of your natural, healthy smile, all while restoring its complete function.

Missing Multiple Teeth

There are two different approaches we can take to replace multiple missing teeth, depending on whether they’re located throughout the arch or directly next to each other. If they’re consecutive missing teeth, we can secure a dental bridge to two dental implants, so the prosthetic will be anchored to the implant posts instead of your existing, healthy teeth. If they’re located throughout your arch, we can use a combination of implant bridges and implant crowns to repair the entirety of your arch.

Missing All of Your Teeth

For those looking for a more stable alternative to traditional dentures, we offer implant and All-on-4 dentures. Using anywhere from four to eight dental implants as a foundation, we can secure a full denture within your mouth, making basic tasks like eating and speaking drastically easier.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

We take pride in offering personalized dentistry here at Bayville Dental Arts, which is why you’ll find that there’s no set price tag on dental implants. This is because every patient is different, and while some people will require preparatory treatments like a bone graft, others won’t, greatly impacting the cost of the overall process. That being said, at your initial consultation, once we’ve had a chance to examine your smile, our team will provide you with a detailed price estimate of your procedure to make sure you know how much it will cost. We can also walk you through all of your payment options, including dental insurance coverage and financing.
