Taking care of your dental implants is similar to taking care of your natural teeth. You should brush and floss regularly and visit your dentist for checkups and cleanings. Your dentist may also recommend using a special mouthwash or other products to help keep your implants clean and healthy.
Some dental insurance plans may cover the cost of dental implants, while others may not. You should check with your insurance provider to see if implants are covered under your plan. If they are not covered, your dentist may be able to offer financing options to help make the procedure more affordable.
The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the number of implants needed and your geographic location. However, dental implants are typically more expensive than other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges.
As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with getting dental implants. These may include infection, nerve damage, and implant failure. However, these risks are very rare, and your dentist will take steps to minimize your risk.
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. However, you will need to take good care of your implants by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly for checkups.
Most people experience some discomfort during the implant placement process, but the procedure is typically done under local anesthesia and sedation so you shouldn't feel any pain. You may experience some soreness and swelling for a few days after the procedure, but your dentist can recommend pain medication to help manage these symptoms.
Dental implants are typically placed in a multi-step process. First, the implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. Then, the implant is allowed to heal and integrate with the jawbone over several months. Finally, a replacement tooth or bridge is attached to the implant.
Most people who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, disease, or decay are good candidates for dental implants. However, your dentist will need to evaluate your oral health and overall health to determine if you are a good candidate.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge. They are typically made of titanium or other materials that are compatible with the human body.
