What is the process of DENTAL IMPLANTS?
A titanium implant will be placed in the jawbone to replace the root. Then you will be given time to heal. The jawbone will grow around the implant and create a strong foundation for the tooth part of the implant that will be put in later on.
Next, a support post, known as an abutment will be placed into the titanium implant.
A porcelain crown is placed onto the post. This crown will act and look like a new tooth. The crown is made to fit precisely in your mouth and match your remaining teeth.
We offer many options and choices if you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth. Dr. Roll is happy to answer questions and discuss options with you at the time of your appointment. She and the rest of our team at Pinnacle Center – Dental Implants & Periodontics will work with you to place an implant that will last the rest of your lifetime.
WHAT IS THE COST OF A DENTAL IMPLANT?
The cost of dental implants can be a bit pricey in some cases because many insurance companies don’t cover the cost of this procedure. This is because they consider dental implants a cosmetic procedure. But, when you have a broken or missing tooth, getting it replaced is not just cosmetic. Teeth replacement is needed to keep your mouth and jaw healthy and to protect the rest of your teeth. Missing teeth can also make chewing and eating uncomfortable.
Our office also provides many financing options that make getting a dental implant more affordable than ever. We are happy to discuss options with you, and we will work with you to figure out the best way to move forward with receiving dental implants.
