Whether you’re missing one tooth or many teeth, it can make everyday activities like chewing and speaking that much more difficult. Not to mention, it can make you feel self-conscious about showing off your smile. Thankfully, modern dentistry has the answer: dental implants.

Dental implants are a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth. Many patients prefer dental implants to other restorative options because of how similarly they look and feel like natural teeth. At Bella Vista Family Dental, we don’t want you to have to settle when it comes to your smile. Schedule a consultation with us to learn how dental implants can change your life!

Dental Implant Placement

Getting a dental implant occurs over two main phases: placement and restoration. Some dental offices are unable to perform the initial placement procedure as it involves oral surgery, which means they have to refer you to an outside doctor. With our experienced team and advanced technology, we can take care of the entire process in-house.

During dental implant placement, we place the implant post into your jaw. This post is what will act like your artificial tooth root. We let the implant fuse with your bone to provide a stable foundation, and we let the area heal before moving on to the restoration phase.

Types of Dental Implant Restorations

There are different restorations available to complete your dental implant depending on how many teeth you’re replacing. We can replace a single tooth with a dental crown, multiple teeth with an implant-supported bridge, or a full arch with dentures. Whichever option you get, our team will take care to design your restoration to look natural so you can enjoy a beautiful, improved smile.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • They’re considered a permanent tooth-replacement option.
  • They’re secured in place so you don’t have to worry about them slipping and falling out.
  • They can be cleaned like your other teeth (no need to remove them or buy special products).
  • They preserve your oral health by providing jawbone stimulation and preventing your other teeth from shifting into open spaces.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

The cost of dental implant depends on how many teeth you’re replacing, which restoration option you’re receiving, and the condition of your oral health (as that might affect whether you need any other procedures beforehand to ensure the success of the implant procedure).
