Dental Implants Q & A
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant consists of a titanium base (artificial root) that is inserted into your jaw. This base will fuse with the jaw as it heals making it permanent. Once it heals an abutment is attached to the base and becomes the support for a crown.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
An implant is the only single tooth restoration that leaves adjacent teeth untouched. Additionally, it also helps maintain bone level and gives the most natural feeling and looking result.
When are dental implants appropriate?
Dr. Kraft uses dental implants to replace missing teeth. However, to get a dental implant, you must have strong bone in your jaw to hold the device in place. If your jaw bone isn’t strong enough, Dr. Kraft may need to graft the bone before she can place the implant.
How much will dental implants cost?
The exact cost of dental implants depends on several factors, including the number of implants you need and whether bone grafting is required. Some dental insurance policies may cover a portion of the treatment costs. If you’re interested in dental implants, Dr. Kraft will prepare a detailed quote of your estimated expenses before you schedule the procedure.
