Our team at Norcross Dental Associates is here to help you smile with confidence again. Take the quiz to see if you are a candidate for dental implant treatment.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as you can. Missing teeth can impact your oral health as well as your overall physical well-being, causing problems biting, chewing, and eating properly. You also have a greater chance of developing gum disease, TMJ, crooked teeth, and other issues if you go without replacing your missing teeth.
If you choose a crown or bridge, your replacement tooth will last 10-15 years before it needs to be replaced due to normal wear and tear. If you receive an implant denture, you can expect it to last 5-10 years. The implant itself fuses to your jawbone and can provide a stable foundation for your replacement tooth for the rest of your life with good oral hygiene and at-home care.
If you choose dental implants, you will require a minor surgical procedure to place the implants in your jaw. Following your procedure, it’s normal to experience some pain and swelling while your mouth heals. Our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions and prescribed pain relievers (as needed) to help you manage any discomfort you may experience.
Many dental plans may cover a portion of your procedure. We will verify all benefits prior to treatment and help you make the most of your insurance coverage.
The full cost of your implant procedure will depend on your overall treatment needs, such as the extent of restoration required to complete your smile. Your dentist will perform a complete dental exam to assess your unique needs. Next, our team will provide you with a complete breakdown of all costs and payment options during your consultation.
Dental implants are made from titanium. Dental professions choose this metal because it’s biocompatible, which means it fuses with the surrounding bone tissue. This can prevent or reverse the bone loss that occurs when you lose one or more teeth.
