Benefits of Dental Implants


Dental implants look and act like your natural teeth, and that means you will be able to chew and bite naturally. Once they have been installed, they will never need adjustment in your mouth, because they are so well anchored. Another real advantage of dental implants is that they have no negative effects on the surrounding teeth. That means it is not necessary to grind down any nearby teeth in order to install the implant. No one will ever notice that you have an implant, because they are customized to look exactly like all the other teeth you have. With good oral hygiene and proper care, your implants can last an entire lifetime. That makes them a very cost-effective solution for filling in a missing tooth, or several of them.

How Dental Implants Differ from Dentures

Patients who are missing either a single tooth or multiple teeth in their mouth might choose either dentures or implants as a solution. There is a significant difference between dentures and implants however. Since dentures are not permanently anchored in your mouth, they can easily move around, especially when you’re eating. That could lead to some embarrassing moments in public, or with friends. Some people also experience problems with speech when they have dentures, whereas this does not normally occur with implants. Dentures are also removable, which means they need to be taken out of your mouth at night and put back in at morning time. Dental implants are never removed from your mouth, because they are firmly anchored into the jawbone. After several years of usage, it is generally necessary to replace dentures. By contrast, if dental implants are properly cared for, they will generally last throughout a patient’s lifetime. All in all, dentures may be initially less expensive than implants, but in the long term, dental implants are probably a more cost-effective solution for most patients.

BEFORE Dental implants SURGERY:

For the procedure, we administer oral sedation. It is an important consideration for both patients and our clinic. There are a few reasons why oral sedation is important for this particular procedure. By using oral sedation, the patient can be more comfortable during the procedure, reducing any anticipated stress or anxiety. By using oral sedation, the dentist can more easily perform the implant surgery allowing for the procedure to finish more quickly.

Payment for Your Dental Implants

At Dental Arts of Florida, we try to make it as easy and affordable as possible for patients to receive services.

To that end, we offer several payment options, and you can choose the one which fits your budget. First of all, most PPO insurance is accepted, so chances are your carrier will work with us. CareCredit is also accepted, if you have that type of payment insurance. You can get in-house financing with us for either six months or 12 months for any work that has been done. There are also options available for extended time frames, even up to several years. This should help most patients and families afford the cost of whatever dental services are needed. With no financial worries, you’ll appreciate the service you receive even more.

Dental Implants: FAQ

A: The jawbones are not fully developed until at least the late teen years, and sometimes into early adulthood. This means younger people are not ideal candidates for dental implants. On the other hand, there is really no upper age limit for implants, and it is fairly common for people in their 80’s to have implants installed.

A: Good care for dental implants includes brushing at least twice a day, using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Flossing is also recommended, and an occasional mouthwash will be beneficial.

A: It will depend on the specific location where an implant was installed, but speaking generally, the success rate of a dental implant is higher than 98%. With normal dental hygiene, implants can last an entire lifetime for the patient.

A: Implants function just like normal teeth would, and they often last a lifetime. They prevent bone loss, and avoid the possibility of premature aging of the facial area. They can also help you avoid the development of gum disease.

A: It may be necessary to build up your jawbone so it can support an implant. If that is not necessary, an anesthetic will be administered and then an incision will be made in your gums. Then holes will be drilled into the jawbone and a post for the implant will be installed. After the implant is installed, it will begin fusing with the jawbone, and when that process is complete – usually after several months – an abutment will be installed so it can support the new tooth or crown.

A: For most patients, the cost per implant will be in the neighborhood of $1,500 to $2,000, but it could go as high as $4,000. It may cost more depending on the part of the country you live in, and the cost may also increase if you need jawbone supplementation.
