Dental implants restore the look and feel of natural teeth while providing a strength and security other forms of restorative dentistry can’t match. If you have missing teeth, dental implants are an excellent option to consider for replacement.
Dental implants are posts made of strong metal that support natural-looking dental restorations.
At DC Dental Spa, we use dental implants to restore the health and appearance of patients’ smiles when they have been damaged by decay or injury that results in missing teeth.
Made of titanium or ceramic, dental implants are securely inserted into the jawbone during a procedure with your dentist at DC Dental Spa. Once the surrounding bone has formed around the implant, we top it with a replacement tooth–typically a dental crown–that looks and feels completely natural.
You may be a good candidate for dental implants if you have adequate bone in the jaw and are in general good health. The treatment is an effective solution to missing teeth for most patients, even for those who are missing multiple teeth.
Your DC Dental Spa dentist will use anesthesia during the procedure to reduce discomfort, and you may be prescribed a medication to manage pain following the surgery. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities the next day, and the majority report only minimal pain upon returning home.
Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of dental implants depends on the location of the missing tooth and the number of implants needed, but we are committed to making the procedure as affordable as possible.
We also offer flexible solutions for patients who want the benefits of dental implants but don’t want to replace every single missing tooth they have with an implant. These options could include implant-supported dentures or bridges for enhanced security and a seamless smile.
The process of getting dental implants involves a few steps, and the treatment period varies from patient to patient, but we offer flexible scheduling options to make it as convenient as possible for you to get you the care you need.
