Dental Implants in Temple Terrace, FL

Losing a tooth to gum disease, cavities or dental accidents is a common problem, but dental implants in Temple Terrace might be the best solution. With the dental implants procedure becoming increasingly popular, more people are turning to dental implants to restore their smiles and  self-confidence.

What are Dental Implants?

When you lose a tooth, you lose not only  the visible part of the tooth (the crown), but also the roots. The root is anchored by the jawbone, stimulating it every time you bite or chew. When you lose a tooth, you also lose that stimulation. The dental implants procedure restores not just the lost crown of the tooth but also the lost root.

The dental implants procedure can vary based on the type of implant you need, but it results in a foundation for your new tooth that looks and feels natural. Scheduling an appointment with our Temple Terrace dental implants experts can help you learn more about your options.

What Do Dental Implants Cost?

The dental implants cost is an important concern for many patients. The cost of dental implants is higher than the cost of other types of restorations, but dental implants are also a more cost-effective solution with many advantages. Some factors that can affect the dental implants cost include the need for bone or gum grafts, the type of implants you need, and the materials used in the post and crown. If you are interested in learning more about affordable dental implants, our team in Temple Terrace can help you find the solution that best meets your needs.

Is there Dental Insurance for Dental Implants?

Dental insurance plans do not typically cover implants, but dental implants insurance coverage is becoming more readily available. The cost of dental implants with insurance will typically include your copayments and coinsurance. Dental insurance  can be a great way to acquire affordable dental implants. However, if your insurance plan does not include dental implants insurance, other affordable dental implants options are available, including flexible financing. Call our office in Temple Terrace for more details.

The Steps to Obtaining a Dental Implant

The dental implant procedure steps will vary based on your needs and the type of implant that you are getting. If your jawbone is strong and healthy, you are likely a good candidate for endosteal implants. Endosteal implants consist of a titanium root-like device that can be implanted directly into the jaw. Subperiosteal implants are implanted beneath the gums but above the jawbone.

Once the endosteal dental implants have been placed, the jawbone, the bone is allowed to heal, and it will fuse to the implant form. The implant can then be restored with a lifelike porcelain crown. Subperiosteal dental implants are commonly restored using dentures. Dental implants procedure pain is usually minimal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers in most cases.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants benefits are extensive and allow you to enjoy beautiful restorations that look, feel, and function just like your own natural teeth. Your self-esteem and self-confidence can be restored, and your teeth will be easy to clean. You can continue to eat your favorite foods, and speak and smile with confidence. You can even enjoy better dental health because dental implants will help keep your jawbone strong and will not need to rely on other teeth for support.

Caring for Dental Implants

Our Temple Terrace dentists will explain the best way to maintain proper dental implant care after surgery. Once the tissues have healed from the procedure, you can simply brush and floss just like you would your natural teeth. You should also use an antibacterial mouthwash to remove bacteria, and visit us regularly for checkups and cleanings.

Candidates for Dental Implants

If you believe you are someone who needs dental implants, the best way to find out is to schedule an evaluation with our experts in dental implants in Temple Terrace. We can examine you to ensure you have a strong enough jawbone to support dental implants. If you are not a candidate for endosteal implants, subperiosteal implants might still be a good option. In most cases, someone who has good general and dental health will be a good dental implant candidate.

How Long Can Dental Implants Last?

How long dental implants last will depend largely on the implant site, your dental health, and your dental hygiene. However, with good care, dental implants can last from 15 years to a lifetime. Call our office in Temple Terrace to schedule your appointment with our dental implants team.
