Gum disease, tooth decay, and various types of injuries cause millions of people to lose their natural teeth. If you’re among the many who have lost their confidence along with one or more teeth, getting dental implants may be a perfect way to restore your smile. Before you schedule an appointment to discuss getting dental implants in Northern Virginia, here are a few facts about the dental implants procedure to help you prepare.

Dental Implants Basics

Dental implants replace missing roots and serve as anchors for artificial crowns that closely resemble your natural teeth. During endosteal dental implant surgery, a small, screw-shaped, titanium implant is placed permanently into your jaw. If you don’t have enough healthy jawbone available and a bone graft wouldn’t work, subperiosteal implants may be an option; these are placed below your gums but over the top of the jawbone.

What Will Dental Implants Cost?

Several factors can influence the cost of dental implants; these include the type of materials used to make the posts and crowns, dental implants insurance coverage, implant types, and surgical modifications of the jawbone. While dental implants cost more than other dental solutions, their long-term benefits ensure that they’re a great investment. Affordable dental implants last longer, perform better, and look more natural than other types of restorations. For more information about getting dental implants in Northern Virginia, make an appointment with one of our dental implants dentists today.

Will My Insurance Cover My Dental Implants Procedure?

Many people who are seeking information about the dental implants procedure ask about the cost of dental implants with insurance. It is possible to purchase dental implant insurance, but because implants are considered cosmetic restoration, most standard dental plans won’t cover them. Fortunately, although dental implants cost more than many people can pay at once, we offer flexible financing options. These can help you obtain the affordable dental implants that you need for a healthy new smile without needing dental implants insurance. Contact our office for more information and discover possible dental insurance implants solutions.

Steps Involved in the Dental Implant Procedure

The process of dental implants surgery is done in several stages. After the jawbone is prepared, the dental implants are inserted into the bone. They remain in place for several months so that they can fuse with the jawbone to become stable anchors. When healing is complete, your dentist places abutments onto each implant. These small connecting devices will hold your new crowns. To finish the dental implants procedure steps, your crowns are cemented into place, and you can smile with confidence. The above steps apply to placing endosteal implants. The procedure to place subperiosteal implants may differ slightly. Dental implant procedure pain is typically minor. Anesthetic injections and over-the-counter pain medicines are usually sufficient for managing discomfort.

What Benefits Do Dental Implants Offer?

Dental implants are a great option for many people with missing teeth. The following dental implants benefits can change your life.

  • A more natural-looking smile
  • Improved ability to chew
  • Better speech
  • Superior oral hygiene
  • A stable bite and jaw

Millions of people enjoy the benefits of dental implants every day. To become one of them, contact us to learn more about dental implants in Northern Virginia.

Caring for Your Dental Implant

Compared to other restorations, caring for dental implants is a breeze. Here are a few tips for maintaining proper dental implant care after surgery.

  • Treat minor pain or tenderness with over-the-counter pain medicine.
  • After the surgical site is fully healed, treat your dental implants as if they were your natural teeth.
  • Brush your teeth, floss, and use antibacterial mouth rinse daily.
  • Visit your dentist for routine dental exams.

Am I a Good Candidate for an Implant?

If your smile has a few gaps due to missing teeth, you may be a perfect dental implant candidate. The only way to be sure if your jaw can support dental implants is to schedule an appointment with one of our implant dentists. If dental implants are a good fit for your needs, our dentists can create the smile you’ve always wanted. Contact us to learn more about financing plans, dental implants coverage and other options if you think you are someone who needs dental implants.

Dental Implant Lifespan: How Long Do They Last?

If you are considering the procedure, you may question: How long does a dental implant last? Oral health, implant location and dental hygiene are the main factors that typically affect how long dental implants last. If you take good care of your dental health and see your dentist regularly, your dental implants are likely to last somewhere between a decade and the rest of your natural lifespan. If you’re ready for a lifetime smile makeover, contact us today to learn more about dental implants.

Mini Implants: Quick, Simple, and Affordable Tooth Replacement Solution.

Need a quick replacement for a smaller tooth such as an incisor? A mini implant may be the best solution for your needs. Mini implants are roughly half the width of regular implants. As a result, they have become a less costly and more immediate alternative for replacing smaller teeth or teeth within narrow spaces.

How Mini Implants differ from traditional implants.

Since mini implants don’t contain screws, there’s no need for them to be fully submerged. This makes mini implants simpler to replace, if required. They are often recommended for patients who would not be good candidates for traditional implants. These mini versions of full-sized implants also work well for anchoring loose dentures.

The benefits of Mini Implants.

Their easier placement, affordability, and smaller size make mini implants a practical and popular replacement method compared to their full-sized counterparts. In particular, the less invasive replacement procedure makes these smaller implants a safer and faster alternative.

Are Mini Implants right for your needs?

If you currently wear dentures and you are dissatisfied with their comfort or fit, or if you have been told you need dentures or a full-sized implant, ask your Dental Associates of Northern Virginia dentist about mini implants as a safer and more affordable alternative. Depending on which of your teeth needs replacing, this smaller, less invasive option may be a great solution.
