What is a Dental Implant?

The actual dental implant isn’t a replacement tooth by itself; it’s actually a small titanium post that is surgically inserted into your jaw. Once it has fused with the bone during a natural process called osseointegration, it can support the crown, bridge, or denture that will be used to fill the empty space in your smile. In other words, implants serve as roots for prosthetic teeth, securing them in place.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

We’ll need to make sure you’re in good oral health before you can get dental implants. Gum disease and other infections will need to be treated first. Also, if your jaw has already suffered from bone loss, bone grafting may be required to add the density it needs to support the implant posts. If you are a candidate for implants, they can be used to correct any amount of tooth loss.

Missing Single Tooth

If you’ve lost just one tooth, a single dental implant can be used to take its place. We’ll top the implant with a crown that has been shaded and designed so that it looks natural next to your other teeth. In some cases, you can have an implant placed immediately after an extraction.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Bridges supported by implants can be used if you’re missing three or more teeth in a row. Since the crowns that support the bridge will be attached to implants, we won’t have to remove any enamel from your remaining teeth, letting you preserve more of your natural smile.

Missing All Teeth

We can give you implant-retained dentures to replace an entire arch of teeth by placing four to six implant posts in strategic areas. Because your dentures are permanently anchored in your mouth, you can brush and floss as you normally would instead of taking them out to clean them.

Start-to-Finish Convenience

Instead of referring you to a specialist for the surgery, Dr. Courter can usually handle the entire dental implant process from beginning to end. Thanks to his attention to detail and his extensive knowledge and experience, he can ensure your implants are placed successfully and topped with a beautiful restoration. No need to drive across town for treatment from someone you barely know – you can leave your smile in the hands of a dentist you already trust!

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

How many dental implants do you need? What kind of restoration are you getting? What other procedures are required? All of these factors and others will be considered during your initial consultation before we give you a price estimate that you can be confident in. Don’t forget that dental implants last much longer than other restorations; you can consider them an investment in a dazzling smile and an improved quality of life.
