Considerations for Choosing Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dentures, bridges, crown, implants—there are so many choice available to replace broken or missing teeth, so how do you know which replacements are the best choice for you? When considering your options for teeth replacements, you need to fully understand all your options, determine if you are eligible, and find an affordable option. Dental implants are often the preferred choice when it comes to dental replacements because of their lifelong success rate and ability to effectively mimic the natural tooth in both form and function. Learn about dental implants cost and types and work with your dentist in Clearwater to determine the best choice for your dental needs.

There are Two Types of Dental Implants

1. Endosteal implants are the most common type of implant. This implant mimics the form and function of the natural tooth, as it is inserted directly into the jawbone, acting as the tooth’s root and then fitted with a crown. With optimal healing and adherence to good dental care, the implant will be incorporated into the bone to offer full support and function.

2. Subperiosteal implants are placed onto the bone rather than into the bone. This type of implant is used most often used to cover a large surface area, such as when there is not enough bone to support endosteal implants. Most of the implant structure is under the gum tissue; however, the posts remain exposed above the gums and the dentures or partials are then attached to these posts.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a number of advantages over bridges or dentures. Those with a significant number of missing teeth may benefit from dental implants because they mimic the natural tooth more effectively and/or can enhance the fit of dentures, bridges, or crowns. The American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics recommends implants for these reasons:

  • Dental implants support and improve the stability of dentures, bridges, and/or crowns
  • Dental implants improve speech and appearance impairments often associated with new dentures
  • Dental implants ease proper chewing
  • Dental implants approximate the “feel” of natural teeth better than dentures

Considerations for Choosing Dental Implants

You and your dentist in Clearwater will work together to determine the dental implants cost if you are an optimal candidate for implants:

1. Health: Are you in good health?

2. Oral Health: Do you have healthy gums and a jawbone strong enough to support the dental implants?

3. Diagnosis of Condition: missing teeth or a tooth/teeth that needs to be extracted and replaced.

4. Preexisting Diseases and Conditions: Are you suffering from any disease or conditions that may limit your ability to heal properly?

5. Commitment to Dental Health: Are you committed to meticulous dental care and regular visits to your dentist following dental implant placement?

6. Lifestyle: Will you avoid lifestyle choices, such as heavy smoking and drinking, to improve successful outcomes with dental implants?
