Dental Implants Benefits

Implants or fixed teeth offer numerous advantages over other forms of treatment, including:

  • Natural look: They are natural looking and feeling as if they have always been there.
  • Easy Maintenance: Implants are easy to care for and do not require special cleaning tools or techniques.
  • Enhanced eating: Implants allow you to eat various foods quickly.
  • Prevention of bone loss: Implants help to stimulate the surrounding jawbone, replacing lost bone mass.

Tooth Extraction and Implant Procedure Timeline Step by Step

At Acacia Dental Clinic, the implant procedure is generally performed by an experienced oral surgeon or Implantologist. Our Implant dentists have over 20 years of experience in this field, so there’s nothing to worry about. Even the hard case with severe infection can use our services.

Our Procedure in Acacia Dental Care contains these steps:

Consultation

During this step, your dentist will examine your affected tooth, gum area and jaw structure to determine if an implant suits you. One unit of a tooth implant can usually be completed in a single session.

Anesthesia

Our doctor will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area where the extraction will occur.

Tooth Extraction

Depending on the tooth's extraction complexity, this process could take 10-20 minutes.

Prescription for antibiotics

Post-surgery antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent infection and aid healing.

Healing period

Depending on the complexity of the treatment, healing time can range from several weeks to several months. The site will be monitored with regular appointments or x-rays to ensure proper healing during this time.

Implant Placement

During this step, a titanium post is placed in the jawbone at the site of the extracted tooth. This process typically takes one hour and is done using local anesthesia.

Post-placement

For better dental implant care after surgery, you may be given a temporary crown to replace your missing tooth while it heals and integrates into your jawbone.

Permanent restoration placement

The final step is permanently restoring your smile with a custom-made dental crown or bridge. This is usually completed within two months after implant placement is complete. Proper post dental implant care is necessary to ensure the implant heals and functions correctly. Smoking nicotine hinders the healing process.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Do you think about implants but need to know if you are eligible for them? A dental implant or root canal treatment? Which one is for you?

The ideal implant candidate must have healthy gums, good overall health, and enough bone in the jaw to support and prevent bad dental implants.

In addition, you should also be free from any serious illnesses, such as diabetes or heart disease, that would increase the risk of implant failure.

So, if you are thinking about an excellent replacement for damaged teeth, it would be better to consult your dentist first.

Bridges vs. Implants

Bridges and implants are both restorative treatments used to replace missing teeth, but their approaches and benefits differ.

Acacia Dental bridge experts will consider numerous factors to determine which option is suitable such as:

  • The number of missing teeth
  • Location of the gap
  • Existing dental work : dental fillings, tooth extraction or gum disease
  • General health of your mouth
  • Other lifestyle factors: patient’s condition and diseases

Bridges are indirectly held in place by attaching to adjacent teeth. At the same time, implants are directly inserted into the bone and act as artificial roots, providing a firm foundation for new replacement teeth.

A bridge is often recommended as an effective solution. It can be held in place with minimal dental work and is a less invasive treatment than an implant.

Implants may be the preferred method if you are missing multiple teeth in other parts of your mouth since they provide more stability and prevent further bone loss by stimulating the jawbone after a tooth is removed.

Dental Implants Cost

The total tooth implant cost can vary depending on the type of implant used (subperiosteal, transosteal or endosteal implant), material, your dentist‘s experience and the location of the implant. 

For example, Zirconia implants are becoming increasingly popular among patients due to their strength, durability, and aesthetics. It can be more expensive than standard titanium implants, but they may also offer a longer-lasting solution.

Or a front tooth implant can cost different than having wisdom teeth removal and dental implant services together.
