Dental Implants – Your Smile is Worth It

Dental Implants

While bridges and dentures are cost-effective and popular solutions for missing teeth, you may not be able to tolerate them. When you’re faced with this problem, dental implants are a great solution. If you have a strong jawbone, healthy gums, and a good dentist in Bradenton, they’re the perfect way to restore your beaming smile.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are metal posts or anchors that your dentist surgically fuses to your jawbone to serve as stable roots for artificial teeth. Once they’re permanently positioned, replacement teeth are mounted onto them. Unlike traditional bridges, implants don’t have to attach to adjacent teeth. They can support an individual tooth or groups of teeth affixed to a bridge or denture.

Tooth Implant Benefits

Dental implants provide full functionality and natural-looking results, and they can even preserve your dignity. Structures like dentures and bridges attached to the metal posts won’t shift or slide around inside your mouth, so you can eat and speak without fearing embarrassment. Because dentures, crowns, and bridges fit more securely when attached to implants, they feel more comfortable and natural than their conventional peers.

Types of Dental Implants

Two types of implants are approved by the American Dental Association. Endosteal implants require two surgeries. The first places the implant directly into the jawbone. Once gums heal, the second surgery connects a post to the implant, and an artificial tooth or group of teeth are affixed to the post. A subperiosteal implant is a metal frame that’s positioned just below your gum line. As soft tissues heal, the frame gradually affixes itself to the jawbone. Your dentist then mounts artificial teeth to the posts that are attached to the frame.

Care and Cost Considerations

While the dental implants cost is generally higher than other tooth replacement options, and many insurance carriers only cover 10 percent of costs or less, a dentist in Bradenton can help you plan a budget that restores your smile without destroying your budget.
