Your first step should always be to schedule a no-obligation dental implant consultation at Pristine Periodontics and Implants. This initial examination will allow Dr. Sayed to discuss all your options with you and determine if dental implants are a good option for you and your budget.
Dental implants are one of the most popular tooth replacement options available today. The reason for this is their outstanding functionality and natural-looking appearance. The procedure itself requires your doctor to attach a titanium tooth root directly to your jawbone. Once the artificial root or fixture has healed, it supports a gorgeous new tooth that looks, functions, and feels just like your natural ones.
Yes, some general dentists place dental implants. However, not all providers are skilled, qualified, and properly trained to place dental implants. Only a qualified dental implants provider can ensure that your dental implants are properly placed, attractive, and functional. We suggest you choose a dental specialist with years of advanced, post-doctorate training like Dr. Sayed at Pristine Periodontics and Implants. We have successfully placed over 6,000 implants and these patients have a lifetime of Pristine Smiles® as a result. For more information on finding the right dental implants doctor, please review our web page on How To Choose A Dental Implants Provider.
There is no one size fits all cost for dental implants. Each patient is different and consequently, the total cost of your dental implants will depend on many factors. Some of these variables are the density of the bone in your jaw, whether you need supplemental procedures, the number of implants you would like, the geographical area you live in, which provider you choose, and the brand of dental implant you decide on.
The good news is that dental implants are the longest lasting tooth replacement option available. However, dental implants are permanent and can last many decades if they are cared for as recommended. Patients will need to properly clean, maintain, and inspect their implants to keep them functional, healthy, and durable.
The time it takes to get implants depends on the health of each individual patient. On average, placement of dental implants takes three to six months. However, healing times can vary depending on oral health, overall health, and if bone grafting is necessary. For more information on supplemental procedures like bone grafting, please see our Supplemental Procedures page.
Dental implants are not usually fully covered under dental insurance plans. However, sometimes your medical insurance plan will pay for some of the cost, depending on the reason the tooth was lost and when. Specific questions about insurance coverage should be directed to your employer or your insurance provider.
Unlike many other tooth replacement options, dental implants require no extra steps to keep clean. Patients need only brush and floss daily to keep their implants clean and healthy. Additionally, your dental implants can be examined while you are seeing your dentist for regular cleanings. Patients should be sure to inspect their implant site regularly and report any abnormalities immediately.
