Dental Implants in Citrus Park, FL

Missing teeth is a problem that makes many people feel self-conscious. Whether you have missing teeth because of tooth decay, gum disease, or injuries, getting dental implants in Citrus Park is a permanent alternative that can boost your self-esteem and enhance your smile.

 

What Is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are artificial replacement teeth. Although dentures, crowns, and bridges are options for filling the gaps that missing teeth leave, dental implants are a more long-term solution. If you have missing or damaged teeth, dental implant surgery can give you natural-looking teeth that feel and look like real teeth.

Dental implants generally have three sections. The implant part is a root or screw that the surgeon inserts under the gums or into the jawbone. The abutment is the fastener that holds the crown or artificial tooth in place. The crown is usually made of zirconium or porcelain. There are also different kinds of dental implants: endosteal implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone, and subperiosteal implants are metal frames that are attached to the jawbone under the gums.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

The cost of dental implants is different for everyone, and several factors affect this. The biggest factor that affects how much your dental implants cost is how complicated your surgery is. The type of dental implants, endosteal or subperiosteal, also affect the difficulty of the surgery and the costs. The total cost will also rise if you require bone grafting or other reconstruction before the implants are inserted.

Another factor that affects how much dental implants cost is getting dental implants in Citrus Park. This is because the price for dental services varies by location. Other factors include the implant materials and brands used as well as the number of dental implants that you need.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Insurance companies generally consider the dental implants procedure in the elective category, so they don’t cover it if an alternative is available for a lower price. With dental implants becoming more popular, however, many companies are offering dental implants insurance policies.

The amount that your insurance carrier pays toward your procedure and the materials will determine your cost of dental implants with insurance. For example, some dental implants insurance plans only pay for the crowns and leave you to cover the remainder.

If you lack a dental implants insurance policy, affordable dental implants are available through financing options. Ask us for more information about getting implants without dental implant insurance.

Dental Implant Procedure Steps

There are several steps in the dental implants procedure, but the specific steps that we take are based on the implant type and the health of your jawbone. For instance, damaged teeth must be removed before the procedure. Despite some slight differences in the process, the primary dental implants procedure steps include:

  • The surgeon prepares your jawbone for surgery.
  • You wait for the jawbone to heal.
  • The surgeon inserts the implant.
  • You wait for the surgical site to heal.
  • The dentist attaches the fastener and artificial tooth.

It takes months to complete the whole dental implants procedure. The process of dental implants can even take more than nine months depending on the number of steps involved and how long it takes you to recover from the jawbone prep and implant insertion. During the process, we manage dental implant procedure pain with pain relievers and anesthesia.

Benefits of Dental Implants

The main benefit of affordable dental implants is the solid support that they provide. Implants don’t attach to your real teeth or become loose. Other dental implants benefits include that they can:

  • enhance your appearance and self-confidence
  • improve your oral health and speech
  • make it easier to eat

Dental Implants Care

Inflammation could develop in the gums and bones around your dental implants, so dental implant care after surgery is essential. This generally includes going to your dentist for follow-up appointments, during which the dentist will examine the hard and soft tissues and remove calcified buildup around your dental implants. Routine flossing and brushing are also essential to caring for dental implants.

Am I a Candidate for Implants?

You could be a dental implant candidate if you have damaged or missing teeth. Somebody who needs dental implants also has:

  • a desire to improve speech issues
  • a fully grown jawbone that can support dental implants
  • a willingness to endure the lengthy procedure
  • healthy oral tissues
  • no health issues that hinder the ability of the body to heal
  • uncomfortable dentures or an inability to wear dentures

Contact our facility about getting dental implants in Citrus Park. Our staff can assist you in determining if dental implants are ideal for you.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants cost more than crowns, dentures, and bridges so many of our patients ask: “How long does a dental implant last?” It can last for years, typically 40 or more years, because it’s attached to or inserted into your jawbone. You can stretch out how long dental implants last by seeing your dental specialist on a regular basis, practicing good oral hygiene, and avoiding damaging habits such as using tobacco and eating hard foods.
