When to Consider Dental Implants

Dental Implants

You know you want to replace that missing tooth. But what should you replace it with? Dental implants are a surgical option in which small dental appliances are placed directly into the jawbone. For the right candidate, they offer certain advantages over traditional dentures. To find your best option, you’ll first need a proper diagnosis and an idea of the dental implants cost.

People with loose or poor-fitting dentures as a result of flat ridges, or those missing multiple teeth who need support for crowns and bridges, are the most likely candidates for implants. To receive dental implants, the ideal patient must be in good overall health and have healthy gums and adequate bone structure to support the implant. If a patient has health conditions that impact healing, an implant may not be the best choice. Heavy smoking or drinking may also preclude implants. The candidate must be committed to meticulous oral hygiene and willing to make repeat visits to the dentist.

For patients who meet the criteria, dental implants offer a number of advantages. Aside from feeling more natural than dentures, implants offer an alternative for those whose dentures are loose or poorly fitting. Dental implants can reduce the movement of bridges, crowns, and dentures as well as provide support for removable dentures and bridgework. And like dentures, dental implants improve your speech and appearance, promoting greater self-confidence.

There are two types of dental implants. The endosteal implant, the most common type, is inserted into the jawbone to serve as the tooth’s root. For those who can no longer wear conventional dentures, the second type, subperiosteal implants, are a lightweight option designed to fit directly on the existing bone.

Both options are typically made of metals like titanium—biologically compatible materials—to avoid the type of antigen-antibody response that sometimes leads to rejection in heart and kidney transplants. In general, dental implants are safe for those who pass the initial screening parameters.

Your dentist in Flint will provide the dental implants cost and other information to help you make the right decision based on your circumstances.
