Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

After skeletal growth is complete, implants can be used at almost every stage of life without an upper age limit.  
    So, for most patients, the answer is YES!

How long do implants last?
  • Implants can last for the rest of your life! The lifespan of implants largely depends on oral care, lifestyle, and regular check-ups with your dentist.
What makes Dental Implants better than other treatment options?
  • Improve overall health because you can eat a complete balanced diet
  • Prevent bone loss in the jaw – other treatments do not preserve bone (see image to the left demonstrating facial changes due to bone loss)
  • Preserve health of neighboring teeth
          Before                 After
     Bone Loss         Bone Loss
  • Implants last – they have the highest success rate of any dental restoration and they do not decay
What's the average implant treatment timeline?
Step 1
Your dentist will place an implant into your jawbone where the tooth root was previously located.
Step 2
The incision is closed with stitches.  Bone will grow around the implant and attach to the implant surface. This process is called osseointegration and usually takes 3–6 months.  During this time you will wear a temporary tooth replacement.
Step 3
After osseointegration is complete, the abutment is secured to the implant with a screw.
Step 4
The crown is then secured to the abutment. Now you have a prosthesis that looks, feels, and functions lke a natural tooth.
When do implants make sense?

Dental implants are usually the preferred treatment in any situation involving missing teeth (e.g., single tooth restorations, partial and full restorations.)

Dr. Nieca will sit down with you and explain the many benefits dental implants offer
over other treatment options and how, over the course of your life, they may actually be the most affordable option as well!
