What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are a type of prosthetic teeth. Unlike other prosthetics, such as bridges or dentures, implants work by replacing both your tooth root and your tooth crown to provide you with a solution that looks, feels and functions just like your original tooth, including stimulating your supporting jawbone to keep it healthy and provide a stable foundation for your teeth.
Implants consist of two main parts: the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post is made of a biocompatible material, and is surgically inserted into your jawbone to replace your tooth root and provide stability for the restoration. After you have healed from the implant placement, our dentist and team work with you to design, create and place a restoration atop the post to complete your treatment. Implant restorations may be a crown, bridge or a denture, and replace the upper portions of the missing tooth to restore your smile and ability to chew and speak normally.
Dental implants are designed to be permanent replacements for your teeth, and like your natural teeth they need to be cared for with good oral hygiene at home and regular preventive care from your dentist. And just like your natural teeth, if your implant is not properly cared for it can fail and may need to be removed from your mouth. We encourage you to follow all care instructions provided by our dentist and team to keep your implant functioning properly and maximize the benefits of your treatment.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Anyone who is missing a tooth or teeth is a potential candidate for dental implants, as long as teeth and gums are healthy. If you have gum disease, tooth decay or another damaging oral condition, you will need to receive treatment for that problem prior to receiving implant dentistry.
What do dental implants cost?
The cost of your dental implant will vary depending on the number of implants and the type of restoration you receive, as well as any pre-existing conditions that need to be treated before you can receive an implant. After your initial consultation with Dr. Brent Butler, our team will provide you with an estimate of your treatment cost.
Brigham City Dental offers several financial options to help you receive your treatment at a price that works with your budget. Please visit our Financial Options page or contact our office for more details.
