Have you lost one or more teeth? Instead of putting up with the daily struggles of an incomplete set of teeth, talk to the team at The Center for Contemporary Dentistry about rebuilding your missing dentition. We will likely recommend that you receive dental implants in Belmont. This remarkable treatment is the gold standard in tooth replacement because it rebuilds teeth from the roots up, and its results have the potential to last for decades.
A dental implant is the most efficient solution to replace a missing tooth. Instead of building up and replacing only top portion of the tooth, also known as the crown, a dental implant goes into the bone of the jaw. By using biocompatible materials such as titanium and porcelain, we can rebuild the missing tooth in its entirety. By replicating the tooth’s structure and integrating into the jaw, a dental implant can resolve most problems that tooth loss can bring.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! Some of their most notable benefits include:
Dental implants are a versatile treatment that can address any level of tooth loss. They may work for you whether you are missing one tooth, a few teeth, or entire arch of teeth.
If you are missing just a single tooth, we will replace its root with a single dental implant. After the implant bonds with the bone around it, we will permanently place a custom-made crown on top of it to replace the visible portion of the lost tooth.
If your missing teeth are in a row, we will likely recommend that you receive an implant-retained bridge. This type of restoration is similar to a traditional bridge, but instead of requiring support from the remaining natural teeth, it gains all of its strength from a few strategically placed dental implants.
For patients who have lost all of their teeth throughout a dental arch, we recommend implant-supported dentures. The dentures may be permanently fixed in place, or they might simply “snap” onto and off of the implants. In some cases, a traditional denture can be retrofitted to work with dental implants.
Many practices have to refer patients to an outside specialist for at least part of the dental implant procedure. At The Center for Contemporary Dentistry, however, we have the training and experience necessary to perform the entire treatment in-house, from the initial consultation to your implant placement surgery with our oral surgeon — and all the way to your final restorations. At every stage along your tooth replacement journey, you can rely on us to provide you with compassionate, skilled care.
The cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient and depends on a number of factors. Logically, someone who requires only one dental implant will pay less than someone undergoing full-mouth reconstruction. Also, the amount of preparatory treatment, the materials used to create the restorations, and other factors can all have a bearing on price.
When you visit us for your consultation (which will not cost you dime), we will provide you with an estimate for the price of each stage of your dental implant process. We will also help you explore payment options, including insurance and financing.
Although dental implants cost more than traditional tooth replacement options, they are well worth it. Their stability, natural function and appearance, and longevity make them a smart investment for anyone who has suffered tooth loss.
