FAQs about Dental Implants
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that can be inserted into your jawbone. They act much like the roots of your natural teeth and can secure and stabilize a single crown, a bridge or a full arch denture or higher-end restoration.
How can implants help denture wearers?
Dentures can become loose and can float on your gums. Denture wearers often experience challenges while eating, talking, and interacting with others, and find that their dentures are less secure and predictable than their natural teeth. For patients who are having these challenges, denture implants will help a patient eat and speak more confidently. This is especially helpful for the lower denture, which tends to be less secure.
How do implants prevent bone loss?
Bone loss begins the moment you lose a natural tooth. In the first year following the loss of a tooth, your jaw bone can recede almost one quarter of an inch. Without the support of your teeth and facial bones, your face will begin to look prematurely aged. Tooth replacement with dental implants helps prevent bone loss allowing you to maintain a more youthful appearance.
Will dental implants look like my natural smile or teeth?
Most patients discover that implants are the best available solution for the replacement of missing teeth. Our practice offers a variety of options to create a new, natural smile that looks great, restores much of your chewing ability and helps to prevent further bone loss. Our dentist can help you determine which solutions are right for you.
Are implants expensive?
Implants represent an investment in the long-term health of your jaw bone and facial structure, as well as the long-term comfort and confidence in your eating, smiling, interacting and living. Implants cost more than dentures alone, but the benefits can be life changing. Affordable Dentures & Implants in Oak Ridge, TN offers implants at prices that often are significantly more affordable than other providers.
Are dental implants approved by the FDA?
Yes, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration first approved implants in 1982. They have been offered to patients for decades by dentists. Based on rigorous clinical testing, the FDA granted product approval for long-term treatment.
Am I a candidate for dental implants? What about same-day implants?
Your overall health, bone density, and other factors help determine if dental implants are right for you. Our dentist will consult with you to determine your best tooth replacement solutions.
