What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small posts that are made from biocompatible materials like titanium. They can be surgically placed below the gumline and into the jawbone to restore the root structure of missing teeth, providing the bone with stimulation and support to keep it from deteriorating with time. Once they have integrated with the mouth, they can be used to anchor prosthetics like crowns, bridges and dentures to restore any number of missing teeth.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  1. The Initial Consultation: Your initial consultation is typically completed with an implant dentist who partners with board-certified prosthodontist and Diplomate of the American College of Prosthodontics Lisa Kane, DDS, MS, FACP. During this appointment, you will discuss your dental and medical history with them and they will curate a treatment plan to help restore your smile.
  2. Dental Implant Surgery: Once you consent to move forward with treatment, your implant dentist will surgically place your dental implants below the gumline.
  3. Osseointegration & Attachments of Abutments: After your surgery, you will undergo a three to six-month period called osseointegration where your implants will fuse with your jawbone. Once this has occurred and your gums have healed, they will attach small, metal connector pieces to them called abutments.
  4. Custom-Crafting & Securing Your Final Prosthetic: Lisa Kane, DDS, MS, FACP, board-certified prosthodontist and Diplomate of the American College of Prosthodontics, will work closely with you and your implant dentist to ensure you receive your ideal prosthetics to fit atop your implants. She will handcraft them with your wishes in mind, ensuring that they are durable and look lifelike. Once completed, she will attach your final prosthetic to your abutments to complete your treatment.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

The best way to learn whether you are a good candidate for dental implants is to take the first step of the process and schedule a consultation. Your implant dentist will discuss each of your options with you based on your goals and priorities, allowing you to make an informed decision about the best service for your needs. They will also outline a treatment plan for you that may include any of the following pathways toward a complete set of pearly whites.

Missing One Tooth

To replace a single tooth, Dr. Kane can custom craft a free-standing dental crown, being sure to match its shading to the exact color of your surrounding teeth. That way, it will have a lifelike appearance that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Instead of relying on existing teeth to anchor a traditional bridge in place, board-certified prosthodontist and Diplomate of the American College of Prosthodontics Lisa Kane, DDS, MS, FACP can craft a beautiful, customized implant bridge that can restore two or more consecutive missing teeth. Not only is this less invasive but it also does not rely on your existing teeth to support the restoration.

Missing All of Your Teeth

Traditional dentures utilize natural suction to stay secured within the mouth, and while this is an effective option for some patients, others may prefer a more reliable and permanent solution. By placing anywhere from four to eight dental implants across the arch, you can enjoy a high-quality denture that will not slip or shift when you eat or speak.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Each dental implant procedure varies based on how many dental implants you need to have placed, the type of restoration you require and a variety of other factors. Your implant dentist will discuss each of these details with you during your initial consultation so you know what to expect from the process financially. Although dental implants may have a higher upfront cost than traditional prosthetics, they can usually outlast them by several years, minimizing your dental expenses in the long term.
