About Dental Implants
A long-lasting choice, implant-supported dentistry brings you as close to growing new teeth as possible. Expertly placed in the same bone that once supported teeth, you’ll enjoy the strength and function of a natural tooth. Modern porcelains produce a result so life-like, you may forget they aren’t your natural teeth. Dentures can also be attached to implants when more than one missing tooth needs to be replaced. The stability and sense of confidence you develop with implants will leave you smiling.
Dr. Farhana Oza-Chughtai uses the latest technology to collect all the data necessary to help plan your restorative case. Digital x-rays, 3D mapping, models, and photographs prove valuable. Dr. Farhana Oza-Chughtai uses highly regarded specialists to bring all components of your case together. But at all times, she serves as the quarterback of the entire plan.
Many patients find the procedure of implant placement easier than they anticipated. Modern dental anesthetic numbs the site, and experienced hands carefully place the implant. A tiny guide hole provides a path for threading a small implant cylinder into place. The sterile piece is inserted into an exact location, and a smooth cover, or healing cap, protects the implant during the healing period.
In some cases, a temporary or permanent crown may be inserted at the time of surgery.
Implants can’t withstand normal bite forces until the bone has integrated fully into the implant body. Dr. Farhana Oza-Chughtai will help you decide what will work best during the initial healing period, ensuring you’re able to function while still protecting your implants. This period usually lasts 3-6 months as the bone grows around the implant. Most patients experience minimal discomfort after placement, especially compared to an extraction.
A well thought out treatment plan that includes implants creates the opportunity for different restoration options.
After the healing period, crowns or bridges are custom-made and attached to the implants with small screws or dental cement.
One of Healthcare’s Greatest Values
Even with all the benefits, the cost of dental implants are an important consideration. When your case brings together the latest imaging, advanced training, and modern materials, this service offers one of the best values in health care. Compared to the replacement of other parts of the body, most dental implant procedures can be done at a small fraction of those costs. Most patients carry on with normal activities right away and usually enjoy a lifetime of normal chewing, bite stability, and appearance. We know the cost of dental implants is an important part of creating a complete plan that works for you.
The cost of dental implant services involves several critical factors unique to each patient. A fee quoted without careful evaluation and treatment planning may not only be incomplete, but doesn’t consider what’s best for your mouth as an individual. The doctor customizes your treatment plan after careful evaluation your current oral conditions, needs, wants, and budget.
One thing is certain: You’ll get the highest value possible in modern implant dentistry. That means years of natural function and a smile you are proud to show. We look forward to discussing how we can partner together for the best solution for you!
