Tooth replacement can feel like an overwhelming task. If you’ve been missing one or more teeth for some time, make the decision to move forward. Our Elite Dental & Denture team specializes in restorative procedures that will rebuild your smile and health. And dental implants provide patients with an especially secure option for total tooth replacement.
An implant is a titanium post that is embedded in your jaw’s bone. The implant fuses with your bone tissue over time, acting as a new root for an accompanying restoration. Implants can be paired with crowns, bridges or dentures. When joined with a restoration, an implant provides a secure foundation for your tooth replacement. You will be able to speak, chew and smile normally – and gain confidence from your stable implant.
There needs to be adequate bone in the treatment area in order for an implant to succeed. Dr. Singh will complete detailed treatment planning prior to your implant placement to determine the best course of action. If you have been missing a tooth for some time and your bone tissue has resorbed, there are still implant options – you may benefit from a bone graft or another preparatory procedure.
Implant cost will vary depending on your treatment plan. Schedule an implant consultation to learn more details and receive an accurate quote. We will provide projected treatment costs upfront so that you can appropriately plan and there are no surprises.
Many dental insurance providers do not cover implants. Instead, they offer lower-cost options like partials and dentures. That said, you may be able to receive some level of implant coverage through your medical insurance. Check with both your implant and medical insurance providers for detailed coverage.
The process is different for each patient, depending on their treatment plan. There is typically a healing period between the implant placement and the accompanying restorations being put in place. Talk to Dr. Singh at your consultation to learn more about the projected timeline for treatment.
