In most cases, dental implants are the preferred way to replace missing teeth for several reasons. One reason is that they don’t damage nearby teeth as bridges do. They also provide predictable, reliable results that can last a lifetime. And since today’s implant roots are smaller and better designed than ever, there is less trauma involved in the placing of an implant.
The price of a dental implant can vary widely based on several factors, including these:
- Which tooth is to be replaced
- Where the dental practice is located
- What brand and type of implant is used
- And more.
At 613 Dentistry, we offer affordable dental implant options that San Diego area dental patients find attractive and smart for replacing missing teeth.
Worth The Time And Effort
Teeth extraction. If a damaged or failed tooth has not yet been removed, extraction is the first step. If your extractions were done elsewhere, there may be pieces of the damaged tooth still present that must be removed before an implant can be placed.
Bone grafting. If the site of your new dental implant has experienced bone loss, perhaps because the extraction took place a long time ago, bone grafting may be necessary to form a solid support for the implant. Bone grafts must heal from 2 to 6 weeks before the implant placement can move forward.
Implant placement. A dental implant’s root is a titanium post placed into bone using a special drill and other tools. A temporary healing cap is placed over this implant before the gums are closed with sutures.
Temporary crown. The post placement must heal for 2 to 6 months before a temporary crown can be placed for aesthetic purposes. During the wait, bone grows to hold the implant post in place.
Abutment placement. After the post is successfully integrated with the bone, an abutment is placed on the post so that a permanent crown is possible.
Permanent crown. The dentist takes an impression of the abutment, then sends it to a dental lab for fabrication of a custom crown.
Tooth replacement. Finally, the permanent crown is screwed or glued into place, and the tooth replacement is complete.
While dental implants are a long process, they’re a permanent solution for a lost tooth that can last a lifetime. Reach out to us at 613 Dentistry in Chula Vista if you’re ready to resolve your tooth loss with a beautiful dental implant.
