Dental implants provide many benefits and are a popular solution for patients that have missing, broken, or cracked teeth. If you are looking to restore your smile, and are tired of dealing with problems eating or speaking in front of others, then dental implants may be right for you. Dental implants are a permanent restorative solution and can last a lifetime if cared for properly.
Implants are extremely durable, look natural, and function like our natural teeth. At Floor Dental Group we offer many restorative options for our patients and love to help restore and create beautiful smiles that patients can enjoy. When patients choose Floor Dental Group, they know they will receive exceptional service and care.
Dental Implants Provide the Following Benefits:
Dental implants not only look aesthetically pleasing, but they restore the function of your mouth and allow patients to eat all of the foods they love. Chewing and speaking are both easier, and patients can relax when they are in front of others.
Dental implants are very durable, are made out of titanium, and last for years. When patients invest in their smile longevity is key. Implants outlast other replacement options and have the highest success rate.
Implants allow you to live a normal and healthy lifestyle and enjoy all the foods you would with natural teeth. Restoring your smile helps keep your teeth and mouth healthy and looking great. Patients can feel confident around others and boost self-esteem with a brand-new smile.
Dental implants are a permanent solution and do not slip around or need to be removed like other solutions. Implants are anchored to the jawbone and act like natural teeth. They stimulate new bone growth and provide outstanding chewing power.
Cared For Like Natural Teeth
Following good oral hygiene habits can ensure your implants remain healthy and last for years. Another great benefit of implants is that they are cared for in the same way that we care for our natural teeth. We recommend brushing and flossing daily and following good oral hygiene habits while at home. Regular appointments at least twice a year for a cleaning and exam in our office are recommended to ensure your implants are stable and we see no problems.
At Floor Dental Group we care about your health and love to help our patients achieve a smile that is both functional and beautiful. We provide the highest level of service and use only state-of-the-art technology and equipment. When patients choose us, we ensure the entire process from start to finish is positive, and continue to monitor the health of our patients’ implants regularly.
There are many teeth replacement options available today and choosing the best option is important. If you lose a tooth due to an injury, gum disease, or decay, you want to make sure you choose an option that will last and remain durable. Comparing implants to other restorative options can help you decide if tooth implants are the right choice for you.
Traditional Dentures vs. Dental Implants
Dentures are an appliance that is custom-made to help restore missing teeth and overall mouth function. This method of replacement is typically more affordable compared to implants, but this option is removable. Dentures can slip and click, cause discomfort, and must be removed daily for cleaning. Dental implants are inserted into the jaw and act similar to a tooth root. The implant bonds with the jawbone during a healing period, and creates a base of support for the replacement tooth. Implants are permanent and do not need to be removed for cleaning. They are comfortable and do not cause irritation or rub against the gum tissue.
Dental Bridge vs. Dental Implants
Dental bridges are another form of tooth replacement and require the support of adjacent teeth. They can be placed permanently and provide comfort and a solution for missing teeth. Dental bridges look natural and are typically less expensive compared to dental implants. Bridges do not require any invasive surgery but do need to be replaced between 5-7 years. If any of the supporting teeth are compromised, this can also compromise the dental bridge and require immediate treatment. Bridges have become less popular now that dental implants are available. Implants do not rely on adjacent teeth and a single implant or multiple can be placed, and last for years without the need for replacement. Dental implants retain their natural look longer and do not damage healthy teeth around the implant.
Flipper vs. Dental Implants
A flipper is a removable partial denture that helps to replace missing teeth with prosthetic teeth. Flippers can restore a smile and are made using an impression. This method of tooth replacement is affordable and looks natural, but does make it difficult to eat because they are fragile. Flippers may cause some discomfort because they may move around or feel unnatural, and do require daily cleaning to keep the device in good condition. Dental implants do cost more but provide function like no other restorative option can. Implants are permanent and do not need to be removed. Patients with implants can eat the foods they love and they don’t have to worry about breaking a device while eating. Dental implants are durable, rarely need to be replaced, and do not require the maintenance that a flipper device requires.
Choosing To Not Replace A Tooth
Leaving a missing tooth can cause a jaw to deteriorate over time and this can cause your face to sink in and look unnatural. Dental implants replace the tooth root and this helps to preserve the bone in the jaw and create a stability that will last. Implants are strong and will last for years without the need for replacement.
At Floor Dental Group we provide a detailed consultation for patients seeking tooth replacement options. Our doctors will thoroughly examine your mouth and teeth, and help you choose the right option that fits your needs. Our team will look at severity, location, health history, and budget, and help you restore your smile so you can feel confident again. Let Floor Dental Group help you take the first step towards a brand-new smile with dental implants.
Our detailed evaluation process can determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. In most cases, all patients are good candidates, but we like to look at your health history, and the condition of your teeth and mouth among other things to ensure implants are the right choice.
If you have any of the following you may be a good candidate:
At Floor Dental Group we want our patients to live a healthy lifestyle and have the ability to eat the foods they love and enjoy speaking around others. Your smile is important, and dental implants can provide a permanent solution that looks natural and functions like our natural teeth. We know you will be happy with your decision to choose Floor Dental Group for your dental implants.
When a patient decides to move forward with a large investment such as dental implants, the cost is an important factor.
At Floor Dental Group we discuss costs upfront during our consultation process and can assist in answering any insurance or coverage questions. We provide financing options and payment plans for our patients to ensure every patient can receive the dental care they need.
Each insurance plan is different, and typically dental insurance plans do not cover implants. In some cases, dental insurance will cover up to 50% for dental implant surgery.
We recommend patients check with their insurance provider and look at their deductible to determine what is required to be paid upfront. Medical insurance policies will sometimes cover dental implants but this depends on the policy and if you have any pre-existing conditions.
The cost of dental implants varies depending on case severity and the number of implants required. Implants are an investment and are built to last without the need for replacement in the future like other restorative options such as dentures. Investing in your smile can give you a permanent solution and prevent jaw deterioration as you age.
At Floor Dental Group we want all of our patients to be able to receive the care they need and achieve the perfect smile. Dental implants are a long-term investment and are worth it financially because they will last a lifetime. If patients choose to do nothing, they risk their teeth and jaw deteriorating and will most likely need to address problems in the future. Choosing implants can save you trips to the dentist, and allow you to enjoy a beautiful smile for years to come.
