What Are Dental Implants?
Missing teeth are an issue that affects at least 120 million Americans, resulting from accidents, cavities, teeth misalignment, disease, and other factors. Modern dentistry has significantly advanced to replace missing teeth, but one of the best methods is dental implants. There is no other tooth-replacement option that gives you a longer-lasting result. Dental implants also help preserve the bone that naturally deteriorates when a tooth is lost. This bone loss is one of the major hidden consequences of losing teeth.
A dental implant is a small, screw-shaped titanium post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. It’s about the size of a 3.5mm headphone jack and causes less damage to natural teeth than dental bridges and dentures. You can compare a dental implant to a screw-in tooth.
Dental implant surgery is a minor procedure where the dental implant is placed directly into the bone of the space caused by a missing tooth. The bone is then healed around the dental implant, and a custom tooth is made to resemble the look and feel of your natural teeth. The success rate of dental implants is 97%, higher than other teeth replacement options. Please note, smoking and diabetes can decrease the success rate of dental implants.
You may then be wondering where you can find “cheap dental implants,” “affordable dental implants,” or simply “dental implants near you.” Contrary to popular belief, dental implants are less expensive than a root canal when you factor in the build-up, post, and crown on top in root canal surgery. Furthermore, dental implants last significantly longer than competing teeth replacement procedures, making them an alternative that can save you money in the long run.
Why Choose Us?
The process of placing an implant on a tooth is standard, but that is only half of the challenge. The other half depends on how your own body heals and integrates the dental implant.
While other offices may depend on synthetic or animal-derived materials, at Genuine Dental Arts, we integrate Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) technology to kick healing into overdrive by using your body’s own stem cells and growth factors.
This not only makes the dental implant heal faster, but better! With the integration of this technology, pain and complications after surgery are greatly reduced.
