Patients in the Palm Beach Gardens area ask about the timeline and cost of zirconium dental implants
Missing teeth can be devastating to a smile. They can affect aesthetics, health, and function. It is essential that patients who have lost teeth speak to a dental professional as soon as possible about replacement to avoid further issues such as misalignment of the teeth, which is a common problem. Pure Dental Care of Palm Beach Gardens area encourage patients to learn more about restoring their smiles with high quality dental implants.
Dental implants are zirconium posts that are fabricated to act as natural tooth roots. They are placed into the jawbone and then completed with ceramic restorations. The restoration may be a crown, a bridge, or a denture. Our practice places and restores dental implants. We avoid the need for referring patients out to dental professionals they have not built a trusting relationship with. We like to provide as many in-house services as possible to our patients to build that positive connection.
Dental implants typically cost more than alternative restorations such as bridges and dentures, but they are permanent. Most patients enjoy their dental implants for the rest of their lives without needing to have them replaced or altered. Proper care will extend their lifespan and ensure other issues such as periodontal disease do not develop. If dental implants fail, a bone graft may be needed before trying to place them again. This can become costly.
It is important that patients are appropriate candidates for dental implants. This requires a consultation, evaluation, and x-rays to assess the health of the smile and determine whether there is sufficient bone for successful placement.
We encourage patients to speak to us about the timeline of having implants placed, as they can take several weeks for the process of osseointegration to occur. Contact us today to book an evaluation appointment and find out if dental implants are right for you!Back to Dental Implants Page
