Missing teeth can be detrimental to your health. Today, implants are the best option for you to replace teeth back to their original in a healthy, natural way. An implant replaces all parts of your natural tooth, from the roots all the way to the crown that is 100% biocompatible and stable.

Dental Implant Process:

  • The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months.
  • Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary.
  • After placement, the implant must be allowed time to heal. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.
  • After the implant has healed your new, permanent, tooth can be installed!

Dental Implant FAQs:

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a surgical process for replacing missing teeth. It involves inserting a small, screw-like titanium post into the jawbone, serving as an artificial tooth root. This post fuses with the bone over time, providing a stable foundation. A dental crown, designed to mimic the look and function of a natural tooth, is then attached to this post.

How much is a dental implant?

The cost of a dental implant varies widely based on the specific patient’s needs. The Van Hoof Dental team will discuss the price with you, however, keep in mind that additional costs may arise from necessary procedures like bone grafting, x-rays, or CT scans. Dental insurance may cover a portion of these expenses, but it’s important to consult with your insurance provider and dental professional for a precise estimate.

How long does a dental implant procedure take?

The dental implant procedure timeline varies depending on individual cases. Initially, the implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone, which requires healing time for osseointegration (the process of the implant fusing with the bone). This can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Once healed, an abutment is placed, followed by a few weeks of healing. Finally, the dental crown is fitted. Overall, the complete process from start to finish can take about 6 to 9 months, but complex cases might take longer.

How to relieve pain from dental implant?

Post-surgical pain from a dental implant is normal and usually manageable. Pain relief methods include: 1.) Taking prescribed pain medications or over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen. 2.) Applying cold compresses intermittently (20 minutes on, 20 minutes off) to reduce swelling and discomfort for the first 24-48 hours. 3.) Eating soft foods to minimize pressure on the implant site. 4.) Practicing good oral hygiene but avoiding brushing directly on the implant site initially.
