Why an Implant?
Not only do dental implants do wonders for the appearance of your smile and your self-esteem, but they also are very important when it comes to your oral health. Missing teeth can cause some serious dental issues and life problems to arise such as:
- Deterioration of the jaw bone due to lack of stimulation through chewing
- The shape of your mouth will have changed, therefore surrounding teeth and gums are at risk for infections or problems
- Everyday things like eating and speaking become difficult to do
The overall health of all of your teeth is at risk once one tooth goes missing, with a dental implant, all of the above issues will be avoided.
What is an Implant?
To make sure that the tooth is permanent and as natural as possible, the implant is made up of two main parts; the implant and the restoration. Just like the natural anatomy of a tooth is made up of the root of the tooth and the actual tooth itself, you can think of dental implants as having the same.
Implant: The implant itself is a titanium rod that is placed into your jaw bone, surgically, to act as the root of the new tooth. The main purpose of the root is to provide stabilization for the teeth to keep them in place. Implants do the same for the restoration.
Restoration: For a single tooth replacement, the restoration will be an artificial custom-made tooth crown that will be placed onto the implant. It is made to fit exactly into your smile perfectly, resembling exactly your natural teeth in shape, size, and shade.

How Long Do Implants Last?
Over three million Americans have dental implants. This begs many to wonder how long the implants actually last...
Dental implants are so popular because they are known to last a lifetime! If you have had a crown or bridge replaced, then you understand how not every treatment lasts forever. Crowns and bridges fail for their own reasons, but you don't need to worry about the same risks with implants. If you want an idea of how many years an implant lasts on average, the conservative estimate among dentists is around 25 years. There aren't many long-term studies on implants due to their fairly recent uprising, leading to the inability to guarantee they will last a lifetime. The longevity of a dental implant relies upon the same factors as natural teeth. Good oral health habits will prolong the life of implants.
Why Do implants Cost So Much?
Implants are a top-of-the-line dental procedure. Getting an implant isn't like shopping for a new car where you can compare prices with nearby dealerships. It's more like getting a custom-built pool in your backyard where the skill of the contractor, materials used, and time involved matters.
There are many factors that can impact the price. Implants use a titanium alloy, which can vary in price. This isn't something you can just buy from a local store. Some variations are more expensive than others. Depending on which version your dentist uses will affect pricing.
The amount of time it takes to secure an implant and the skill of the dentist are also important factors. This procedure usually involves a couple of visits to the dentist. The amount of time invested by a dentist and their staff is a cost factor. The level of experience a dentist has with implants can also cause a difference in price. You should pay attention to the skills and materials used for a pool installation and you should apply the same principal when getting implants.
Another factor is where the implant is based. X-rays are taken to determine what exactly is needed to secure an implant. Let's say someone has had a missing tooth for quick some time and have loss thickness in their gums. This will increase the workload required to fix.
No other tooth replacement procedure compares to dental implants. The durability, usability, and comfort of them are bar none. This investment is the only treatment plan that can truly make it feel like you have your teeth back again.
