Are you tired of traditional dentures that slip when you speak or eat? Are you embarrassed to smile because of missing teeth? If so, it is time to learn more about affordable dental implants. Millions of Americans have regained their smile and confidence thanks to dental implants. Our dentists make it possible to get high-quality dental implants in Homestead, so call today to schedule your consultation.
Implants come in a variety of styles to suit different dental needs. All implants are comprised of a screw-shaped titanium post to simulate the tooth root, a crown resembling a natural tooth, and an abutment to connect the two pieces together. The most common type is the endosteal implant. With endosteal implants, the post is implanted directly into the jawbone. A subperiosteal implant is more appropriate for patients who lack sufficient jawbone to support an implant and when a bone graft is not feasible. With subperiosteal implants, the post is embedded in the gum, but it does not go all the way to the jawbone. An implant-supported bridge can be used to replace multiple missing teeth. Mini implants are an option for individuals who cannot tolerate the traditional implant procedure, suffer from low bone density, are unable to undergo a bone graft, or who do not have enough space in their jawbone for traditional implants. Our dentists can even insert a single implant if you only have one missing tooth.
It is true that dental implants cost more than traditional dentures; however, most of our patients find that the benefits are worth the investment. Implants have a more natural feel and appearance than traditional dentures. They are extremely strong, so you are free to eat most foods without worrying about your teeth breaking or slipping. Unlike dentures that typically have to be replaced every few years, implants are durable enough to last for decades with proper care, so your replacement costs are lower. To determine your exact dental implants cost, we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our dentists. Your final cost will be based on the type of implant required and the complexity of your dental issues.
Dental implants insurance is not included in most dental plans; however, you should not assume that dental implants in Homestead are not within your budget. We offer a range of cost-effective implant options. Our staff can also help you find a payment and financing option that will work with your budget.
The exact technique used will vary based on the type of implant required and your specific dental issue. Once the dentist has numbed the area with a local anesthetic, the implant post will be surgically inserted into the gum or jaw. As the site heals, the post fuses in place to create a firm foundation for the crown. After you have had several months to heal, you will return to our office to have the crown cemented into place.
An increasing number of patients are choosing implants over traditional dentures. The following are just a few of the amazing benefits of implants:
Following your procedure, your dentist will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions. It is important that you follow these instructions carefully to ensure that you heal properly. Once you are healed, you simply brush and floss like you do your natural teeth. Of course, you should still see a dentist for regular exams and cleanings.
There is an implant option suitable for most patients. The best way to find an implant option that will work for you is to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists.
Implants are made to withstand normal wear and tear. Your overall oral health, the location of the implants, and your oral hygiene can all affect the how long your implants last. With proper care, implants can last for decades. Begin your journey toward a better smile by scheduling a consultation with one of our Homestead dentists.
