Dr. Moses offers several different options for dental implants. Whether you are missing one or several teeth, he can create a personalized treatment plan to restore beauty, health and function to your smile.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone beneath the gum line. This titanium post will act as the tooth root providing a durable foundation for the replacement tooth. Then Dr. Moses will use that to attach a new dental restoration. There are many options available if you are missing teeth. The main difference between dental implants and dental bridges or dentures is that dental implants replace the actual root structure of a tooth. This means that the prosthetic tooth (or teeth) is permanently fixed in the mouth and does not require any support from neighboring teeth or use of adhesives.
The Dental Implant Process
The process of getting dental implants requires multiple visits over several months. The first step is the surgical implantation of the dental implant titanium post into your jaw bone. In many cases, Dr. Moses will be able to surgically place the dental implant in our Chesapeake, VA cosmetic dentistry office. In other cases, Dr. Moses may work with a local oral surgeon or periodontist to coordinate the surgical phase of treatment.
The dental implants will be left to heal and integrate with your natural bone, serving as the stable anchors for the new teeth. The healing process can takes about three to six months. Once the implant is healed, Dr. Moses will place the final restoration of either a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture in his Chesapeake, VA dentist office.
Cost of Dental Implants
The initial cost of dental implants may be more costly than other tooth replacement options such as dentures. But dental implants are a long-term investment in your overall well-being and oral health and may help to prevent the need for further advanced dental care. Dental implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth and often require no future maintenance costs. There are many factors that go into the final cost of dental implants including:
- Number of implants needed
- Location and size of the dental implant
- Need for bone grafting
- Need for additional dental treatments
Bayside Implant & General Dentistry offers flexible payment options including financing to help with the cost of dental implant treatment. We will review all of the details including the cost of your implant procedure and payment options prior to treatment. Don’t avoid dental care because you think you can’t afford it.
