What is a Dental Implant?

An implant is a man-made replacement for the roots of your teeth. We can place crowns/caps, bridges, or dentures on top of the implants with a connector called an abutment.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

The best way to learn whether you are a good candidate for dental implants is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mularczyk. During this visit, our team will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth to find out if dental implants are a suitable solution for you. Not everybody is a perfect candidate right off the bat, but that does not mean that you cannot get there! Plus, implants are a versatile treatment, so they may be able to help you whether you are missing one tooth, a few teeth, or all of your teeth.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Generally speaking, candidates for dental implants:

  • Are in fair overall health. You should be well enough to undergo minor surgery
  • Are free of active gum disease. Gum disease and certain other oral health conditions could interfere with the long-term success of your implants.
  • Have a strong jaw. Your bone should be large enough and strong enough to serve as a strong base for your new teeth.

Even if you are not a candidate for dental implants right away, you may become one after some preliminary treatments. For example, you may need a bone graft or gum disease treatment.

Missing One Tooth

To replace a single missing tooth, a local specialist can insert one dental implant in the gap below your gums to replace the root. Next, you will receive an abutment, which is a small metal connector piece, followed by your custom-crafted dental crown to re-complete your smile. This is a fairly straightforward process that yields outstanding results.

A dental implant is superior in many ways to another popular form of implant tooth replacement — a traditional fixed bridge. Unlike a bridge, a dental implant does not require that the nearby teeth be modified. Plus, it provides healthy stimulation for the jawbone.

Missing Multiple Teeth

To replace a few missing teeth in a row, we may recommend that you receive an implant-supported bridge. Instead of relying on the natural teeth for support, this type of restoration is anchored in the jawbone by dental implant posts, which get placed on each end of the empty space. Crowns get attached to the implants, and the crowns support one or more artificial teeth between them.

If your missing teeth are not all adjacent to one another, we will discuss other treatment possibilities, such as multiple single implants or an implant-supported partial denture.


Missing All Teeth

If you are missing all of your teeth throughout a dental arch, you may need an implant denture. A removable denture can be supported by as few as two strategically placed implants, but we typically favor the use of more implants so the prosthetic teeth can be as sturdy as possible.

You might also qualify for a fixed denture, which is only removable by a dental professional. A fixed denture typically requires four or more implants. Many patients enjoy the convenience of always having their teeth in their mouth.

Our team, working along with your specialist, can decide which type of implant denture is right for you.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

It’s true that most dental insurance policies won’t cover the cost of dental implants. However, that doesn’t mean that they’re still not one of the best tooth replacement investments you can make. Because they can last up to four times as long as traditional restorations, they’re actually one of the most financially-friendly and hassle-free procedures you can have to restore your grin! If you would like to learn more about your financial options for the dental implant procedure, don’t hesitate to contact us and ask.

If you have read through all the above information and are interested in learning more before committing to this smile-rebuilding solution, we are here to help!

How Should I Care for My Dental Implants?

Caring for your dental implants properly is essential to prolonging their lifespan. To start, make sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day and prioritize flossing. Next, limit hard foods, like peanut brittle, which can chip, crack, or otherwise damage the dental crown. Avoiding poor dental habits, like smoking, nail-biting, and chewing on ice is also essential. Lastly, make sure to schedule and attend a dental checkup and professional teeth cleaning every six months. That way, our dentist in Sugarcreek can keep an eye on their condition and set them up for continued success.

Will My Dental Implants Blend In With My Natural Teeth?

If you are replacing only one tooth or several teeth throughout your mouth, you can rest assured that your dental implants will blend in with your natural teeth. Since each one is custom-made to mimic the shade, shape, and size of your missing tooth, the end result is flawless. Plus, since the dental implant replaces the entire tooth’s structure from root to crown, there is virtually no movement, ensuring your smile is as functional as it is beautiful.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Unfortunately, many dental insurance providers don’t view dental implants as medically necessary. Therefore, they typically aren’t covered in full. However, portions of the procedure may be included in your benefits, like the dental crown. Therefore, it is always a good idea to double-check! If you would like assistance with this process, don’t hesitate to ask our team! We would be happy to help you understand your coverage, file the claim on your behalf, and maximize your benefits to the fullest.

What Is The Recovery Like for Dental Implants?

As straightforward as the dental implant procedure is, it still is a surgery. In the days following your appointment, focusing on recovering is crucial. To prevent irritating the implant site, stick to soft foods, like yogurt and applesauce, take painkillers as prescribed, and use a cold compress to reduce swelling. Following these best practices, and the other instructions on your aftercare guidelines, will ensure you have a smooth, stress-free healing experience.

Does it sound like dental implants are the tooth-replacement solution you’ve been looking for? Then it’s time to schedule an initial consultation with our team. Get in touch with us via our website or by phone so we can help you take the next step toward a full, healthy, beautiful smile.
