What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium, ceramic, or zirconia posts that are surgically placed below the gumline and into the jawbone to replace the missing root structure of your teeth. Because the materials the implants are made of are biocompatible, they’re able to chemically fuse with the jawbone to provide it with necessary stimulation and blood flow that will keep it from deteriorating over time. Once this has occurred, a dental crown, bridge, or denture can be attached to the stable foundation to provide you with replacement teeth that function naturally.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  1. The Initial Consultation. The first step of your dental implant process is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Doshi. During your visit, our team will conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth and gums and collect any necessary X-rays. This information will allow us to create a customized treatment plan for you to restore your smile’s complete function and look.
  2. Dental Implant Placement. Doshi places his own dental implants, meaning your surgery will be completed by our team. We’ll secure the implant posts below the gumline and into the jawbone by making a small incision in your soft oral tissue.
  3. Osseointegration & Abutment Placement. Once your implants have been placed, you’ll undergo a three to six-month-long process of healing and bone fusion, called osseointegration. Afterward, we’ll call you back to secure small metal connector pieces to your implants, called abutments.
  4. Attaching Your Final Restoration. Once our dental laboratory has finished crafting your final restorations, we’ll complete the last step of the process by attaching your prosthetic to your implants.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a very popular treatment among patients and are highly recommended by dentists across the globe because of the variety of unique benefits they offer. Not only are they the closest alternative to natural teeth, but their unique composure allows them to stop jawbone deterioration, restore up to 80% of your original bite power, and improve your overall oral health. These advantages make them a priceless remedy for tooth loss.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

Every dental implant treatment that we complete is custom-tailored to fit our patients’ individual tooth loss cases. This makes them an incredibly versatile procedure, as they can replace one, several, or all of your teeth. Based on our findings during your consultation, we’ll likely recommend any of the following pathways to restoring your smile.

Missing One Tooth

To replace a single tooth, we’ll secure one dental implant below the gumline and into the jawbone. Once it has fused with the hard tissue, we can secure an abutment onto the implant that will anchor a free-standing dental crown within the gap in your arch.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Instead of needing to alter your existing dental structure to support a traditional bridge, we can secure your prosthetic to two dental implants placed on either side of the gap in your smile. Once complete, your space left by two or more consecutive missing teeth will be restored.

Missing All of Your Teeth

Dr. Doshi offers All-on-4 and traditional implant dentures to replace an entire row of missing teeth. Because your restoration will be anchored by anywhere from four to eight dental implants, you won’t have to worry about it ever slipping or shifting.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of dental implants in Mansfield will depend on a variety of factors that we will iron out at your initial consultation, once we’ve had an opportunity to examine your mouth. Some details that we’ll take into account while determining the price of your treatment include whether you will need any preparatory treatments like a bone graft, how many implants you need, and which type of prosthetic you require. We’ll then walk you through a detailed cost estimate of your procedure as well as your financing options, should you want to consider those.

Dental Implant FAQs

Can I Take Dental Implants Out?

The various parts of dental implants are firmly connected together and are firmly set in the jaw. This means that they can’t be removed except via an experienced dental professional. If you’re interested in a removable prosthetic, you might want to pursue partial dentures instead.

It’s also worth noting that some kinds of implant dentures are possible to remove for the purposes of cleaning, so you might want to pursue this option if you’re interested in being able to take your prosthetic out.

How Successful Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants have an unbelievably high success rate when placed by a trained professional, with over 95% of them lasting for over 20 years. Of course, this has a fair bit to do with how well you take care of them—if you’re thorough with your dental hygiene and refrain from harmful lifestyle choices that could cause problems with your implants, they can easily last a lifetime.

What Should I Do If My Dental Implant Feels Loose?

Your dental implant coming loose is an indicator that something is seriously wrong with it, and that it could be on the verge of failure. If this is associated with severe pain, swelling, and a foul taste in your mouth, it could be than an emerging infection has begun to attack the bone tissue around your implant.

For this reason, it’s a good idea to call us as soon as you possibly can if you notice your dental implant coming loose. The faster you act, the better the odds of saving your dental implant.

Will I Have to Take Off Work for Dental Implant Surgery?

Dental implant surgery is fairly low impact, meaning that most people need to take only one or two days off in order to recover from the procedure. If you schedule the surgery just before the weekend, you may not have to take off of work at all.

Of course, this varies from person to person, so we’ll talk to you about how long you’ll need to wait before going back to work. It’s also a good idea to refrain from vigorous exercise for a few days after the treatment, meaning that patients who perform hard labor may need to take as many as three or four days before going back to work.
