Dental implants the standard of care when replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are the most advanced way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant was designed to imitate natural teeth. A dental implant is composed of three different parts: titanium implant, abutment and porcelain crown. Because the dental implant was designed after a natural tooth, the dental implant looks, feels and function like a natural tooth. There are several outdated methods to replace missing teeth such as, bridges of partial dentures. However, these old fashioned methods have numerous problems that dental implants overcome. Dental implants are the most technologically advanced and conservative treatment option when replacing missing teeth.
For patients missing all of their teeth, dental implants can be incorporated into dentures. These dental implant dentures are secure and stable. The denture “snaps” onto the dental implant that is anchored in the bone. The denture now has a very secure foundation. Dental implant dentures do not move, do not fall out during speech, and do not rub sore spots. Dental implant dentures have given people back their live after experiencing horrible old fashioned dentures. Avoid messy denture adhesives with your new implant dentures.

Do insurance companies cover dental implants? In our experience about half will help with the cost of dental implants, and half will not pay for dental implants.
