What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium post that replaces the natural tooth root. The titanium post is inserted into the area where a tooth is missing and integrates into the jawbone over a three-to-four-month period. This “dental surgery” creates a solid foundation for a restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture.

The implant itself has a flat top surface, and once it has integrated into the bone, a small post, aka abutment, is attached at the top. This can then attach to the abovementioned restorations.
There are two options for this post, and you may hear the terminology “custom abutment” or “stock abutment.” A custom abutment allows the prosthesis to be tightened with a screw, an entirely painless process and eliminates the need for cement. With a stock abutment, the restoration is cemented. As you can see, there is no need to be confused by dental terminology.
The technology of dental implants has advanced significantly, and we now have the ability to scan for surgical guides, abutments, and other items. This eliminates the need for the messy dental impressions of the past. Mansfield Oral Surgery is at the forefront of technology, and we utilize the TRIOS intraoral scanner for your comfort.

What Are Same-Day Dental Implants?

Same-day dental implants have increased in popularity due to their ability to decrease the amount of healing time. The amount of jawbone and the presence or lack of infection are a couple of factors that determine if you are a candidate for same-day implants. Our goal is to ensure you keep that implant for a lifetime, and we will only recommend a same-day dental implant if we expect prognosis is excellent.

How Much Will My Dental Implant Cost?

The cost of a dental implant can vary depending on the quality of the implant company and several other factors, including the potential need for the addition of bone or sinus structure involvement. The Mansfield Oral Surgery team utilizes the best dental implants made by established and reputable implant companies, namely Straumann and Nobel.

How Do I Know If I Need a Dental Implant?

If you are missing a tooth, you are a candidate for a dental implant. The loss of a tooth can affect you in many ways. It can make biting and chewing uncomfortable or painful. It can also lead to adjacent teeth shifting and opposing teeth moving.
Missing teeth that are noticeable when smiling or laughing can also lead to self-image issues that make you feel uncomfortable with socializing or speaking in front of others.

If I Am Missing a Tooth, Is It Too Late for a Dental Implant?

If you have a tooth that has been missing for several years, this may require the addition of bone such as a lateral ridge augmentation for a good foundation for the implant. Remember, the dental implant must have good bone support for a good foundation, much like a fence post needs a good foundation in concrete.
Additionally, another factor to consider is the location of your sinuses. If the sinus floor is lying low, this may require a sinus lift prior to or during placement of an implant.
All the above factors are evaluated at your first initial appointment using a CBCT, or three-dimensional image. This state-of-the-art technology is available at Mansfield Oral Surgery. Contact us to schedule an evaluation for a dental implant.

Why Are Dental Implants Important? Aren’t Dental Implants Just Cosmetic?

You may be wondering why it is necessary to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are important for your long-term oral health. When there is no tooth present, the jawbone in the area can begin to deteriorate, leading to continual bone loss over the years. Dental implants help to stimulate natural bone growth in the area while also helping to keep the adjacent teeth more stable.

Dental implants offer a number of benefits over other options like dentures, including:

  • Decreased bone loss
  • Improved quality of life
  • Improved oral health
  • Natural-looking results
