When you compare dental implants to the longer established restorations such as bridges and dentures, you see immediate advantages. Although bridges are a fine choice, they require that the tooth on either side of the bridge be drilled down and then fitted with a crown so that the bridge can be securely fastened to them. Implants are fused directly to your jaw bone, so there is no need to affect your surrounding teeth. In addition, an implant is more stabile and secure because it is fused to your jaw bone. It needs no messy adhesive like dentures and therefore makes chewing and talking a snap. A dental implant placed by our Jericho implant dentist looks and feels like a real tooth because you have the full confidence that it won’t move around on you.

It is fair to say that dental implants are more expensive than other dental restorations, though. Depending on your budget and what your insurance covers, you may determine that implants are not a financially viable option for you. There are also some requirements that are necessary for you to be considered a good candidate for dental implants. Your gums need to be generally healthy and your jaw bone should be strong enough to hold the implant. If not, bone grafting can still allow you to benefit from dental implants. However, this will mean an additional cost as well as a longer waiting time before you can get your dental implants. If you are in a hurry to get a restoration, you may want to keep this in mind. Personal habits such as smoking and diseases like diabetes can also interfere with the possibility of a successful dental implant. Our Jericho implant dentist will talk with you about your risk factors. Why not schedule a consultation today and find out if dental implants are for you?

Most people qualify for getting dental implants because the requirements are not that difficult to meet. Dental implants are very popular and with good reason. They are a permanent, fixed dental restoration that look and feel very much like your natural teeth do. But if your jaw bone is not strong enough for the support post to be placed and then grow around, the solution is a bone graft and guided tissue regeneration done by our Brookville periodontist, Dr. Warren Baine.

The process of replacing your missing teeth with dental implants begins with a consultation at our office. An examination will determine that your gums are generally healthy enough to accept an implant. Once that is decided, the work can begin on a bone graft and guided tissue regeneration. Bone is harvested from another part of your body and is then transplanted to use in your jaw bone by our Brookville periodontist.

Over time, the transplanted bone grows new bone around it. This forms a stronger and thicker bone, which is exactly what is needed to make you a good candidate for your dental implant. It does requires some patience because it can take up to nine months for the bone to grow sufficiently. However, in many cases the wait is significantly shorter than that. Our Brookville periodontist will, of course, be keeping a close eye on the guided tissue regeneration and letting you know about how long he expects the process to take.

When the bone has grown to the level of strength and thickness that our Brookville periodontist has decided will be enough to work with, the work on your dental implant can then begin. Chances for a successful dental implant, which are typically as high as 98%, will be similar after your bone graft and guided tissue regeneration to what would be expected in anyone whose jaw bone was originally strong enough on its own.

Our Brookville periodontist is happy to offer this option so that many more patients can take advantage of dental implants and all they have to offer. Avoiding the challenges that are part of more traditional dental restorations is well worth the effort. Call us today and let us get started helping you to achieve that goal.
