Benefits of Dental implants
- Dental implants rebuild both the root and the crown of the original tooth. With a new, functioning tooth root in place, the jawbone’s health is better preserved, and patients don’t have to worry about noticeable deterioration.
- Implant-retained teeth are extremely lifelike, both in terms of cosmetic value and overall function.
- Dental implants are very conservative and don’t require surrounding teeth to be altered or minimized to accommodate their placement.
- Dental implants can be used to enjoy all of your favorite foods, and you can brush and floss them normally as well.
- When it comes to longevity, implant-retained teeth are truly unmatched. As long as they’re maintained properly, they can last for multiple decades. Many patients are able to enjoy their new “teeth” for the rest of their lives.
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants are a highly versatile reconstructive service, and patients with tooth loss across a wide spectrum can benefit from them. Keep reading below to learn more about which types of implant-retained restorations will pair well with your specific circumstances and needs:
Missing Single Tooth
Implant-retained all-porcelain crowns can fit over individual implants, blending right in with an otherwise natural smile. Dr. McVety uses only the highest quality ceramic materials for a seamlessly beautiful result that even reflects light in the same way as natural tooth enamel.
Missing Multiple Teeth
While implant-retained crowns can prove useful when restoring several teeth/implants throughout the mouth, a bridge may be a better solution when multiple teeth along the same arch have unfortunately been lost. We will position two implants – one on either side of the gap – and then attach the custom prosthetic to them for a strong and confident fit.
Missing All Teeth
Implant-retained dentures are a more cost-effective reconstructive solution that does not skimp on the enduring quality our patients deserve. We can place a small number of strategic implants throughout the jawbone to support the new appliance, either permanently fixing it in place or designing it to remain removable.
While many dental practices send their patients to outside specialists for the surgical component of their dental implant procedure, Dr. McVety is proud to offer a truly comprehensive experience here in Falmouth, ME by providing all parts of the implant procedure himself. With technological support like guided surgery and 3D X-rays from our revolutionary CBCT scanner, you can trust that he and our team will leave nothing to chance.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
There are several components of dental implant treatment that influence the overall cost, including how many implants we’re placing, the types of restorations that are covering them, and whether any health-minded procedures (such as periodontal therapy or bone grafting) are needed beforehand to ensure success. During your initial consultation, Dr. McVety will thoroughly review your current oral health and provide an exhaustive rundown of your proposed treatment – including financial information – so that you can proceed with total confidence.
It’s important to remember that while dental implants may incur a larger investment upfront, we believe it’s worth making. More traditional reconstructive services often require costly maintenance and replacement over the years, while implant-retained teeth are specifically designed to thrive for decades.
