Why Are Some Dental Implant Cases More Complex?

Filed under: Uncategorized — dr_auster @ 4:04 pm

single tooth implantIt’s something you learn in kindergarten, that everyone is unique and special in their own way. And guess what? That maxim is also true when it comes to your smile. No two sets of teeth and gums are the same as yours, and that means if you have lost one or more teeth, the approach your dentist will take may vary from the one your friend or neighbor had performed.

Dental implants in Suffern are a popular option in tooth replacement, and some cases may be more complex than others. The difference may be in how healthy your jaw is, where in the mouth the implants will be placed, and other variables.

Dental Implants In Brief

Dental implants are the only comprehensive tooth replacement option available. They work by giving you back your missing tooth’s root structure as well as the visible crown that allows you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Made of biocompatible titanium, dental implants stabilize your jaw bone to keep it healthy and whole. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care.

Factors Influencing Dental Implant Placement

There is no one-size-fits-all in tooth replacement. If you are an eligible candidate for dental implants, that’s great news. This is the best method of replacement for one, two, or many missing teeth. Some procedures may be completed in under six months, while others may take a year or more to complete.

The most significant factor influencing the complexity of a dental implant procedure is your oral and overall health at the time of placement. If you have been missing teeth for many months, if you have had severe gum disease, or if your jaw bone was never very strong to begin with, you may need to have a bone graft procedure performed first. This is a separate surgery in which your dentist adds more healthy bone tissue to create the right environment for dental implant posts.

Of course, the number of teeth you are missing and where in the jaw they are located will also affect the complexity of the procedure. Because aesthetics are important for the replacement of front teeth, the placement of implants here is necessarily more delicate and complex.

How Much Will Your Dental Implants Cost?

The complexity of the dental implant placement will also affect how much the procedure costs. When more advanced techniques and tools are required, the cost increases as well. You will need to schedule an appointment with your implant dentist in Suffern to learn about your candidacy for this excellent tooth replacement method.
