Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are the longest-lasting way to replace your missing teeth. Implants are surgical grade titanium posts that replace your tooth roots. Each implant has its own tooth replacement, a custom porcelain crown. You can get just a single dental implant, a group of implants, or even full-mouth implants according to your needs.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer many benefits for anyone who needs tooth replacement. These benefits include:

  • Biocompatible and safe for your body
  • Strong and durable
  • Maintain your facial structure
  • Highly customizable
  • Natural-looking
  • Help prevent jaw bone loss

If you look after your dental implants properly — which is easy to do with regular dental appointments at 63rd Street Dental — they could last a lifetime. 

Is there a less expensive dental implant option?

Many patients consider dental implants the ultimate tooth replacement option, but one potential drawback is that the cost is higher than that of dentures. Implant-retained dentures can be the perfect compromise because they include only 4-6 dental implants in each tooth arch. This small number of implants retains a whole denture arch permanently. 

Implant-retained dentures are cost-effective, strong, and natural-looking, so they can be an excellent option if you want a full-mouth dental implant alternative.

How does dental implant process work?

The dental implant process typically takes place over a series of appointments at 63rd Street Dental. First, you’ll have an assessment appointment in which the dental care specialists determine your suitability. 

63rd Street Dental has a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) system on-site. This system takes 3D X-rays to help your providers plan ideal implant placement. Once you’ve agreed on a treatment plan, the CBCT system helps your specialist guide the implant placement. 

CBCT allows for the most precise implant placement, and that helps minimize the need for additional steps like bone grafting. With this ultra-accurate implant placement, you also get reduced recovery time. 

Generally, you’ll need one appointment for implant placement followed by a healing period of at least a few months. You’ll typically have a temporary crown for each implant as you heal. You’ll have another appointment for permanent crown attachment. The total treatment time can be anywhere from months to more than a year, depending on your situation.
