One of the services provided by Smoke Rise Dental in Stone Mountain, GA, is the placement of dental implants. Our patients frequently require this procedure, and since we have placed over one thousand implants, Dr. Hassan Moeti and his associates have become experts in handling these cases. If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants are an excellent solution.

After the placement, the dental implant fuses with your jawbone, making it solid in your mouth like natural teeth anchored by roots. When you have implants placed by experts like Dr. Hassan Moeti at Smoke Rise Dental, you can count on them lasting throughout your lifetime. This kind of permanent solution makes dental implants one of the best possible solutions for missing teeth, and that's why you should give them serious consideration.

Am I a good fit for dental implants?

Teenagers are generally not a good fit for dental implants because their jawbones are not often fully formed yet. Implants rely on having sufficient jawbone mass for installation. As an adult, if you have an inadequate jawbone, you can have a bone-grafting procedure done, and this will provide additional jawbone mass that will make implants viable. You should also be free of any medical condition that would make implant surgery dangerous. It's best if you do not have any infections in your mouth because an existing infection would have a chance to spread to the implant site and form another condition. Besides these primary considerations, almost everyone in reasonably good health would be considered a good candidate for dental implants.

Pros and Cons of dental implants

There are several good reasons to have dental implants placed in your mouth, and collectively they make implants the best possible option for a missing tooth. For instance, placing a dental implant will be a good option if you want to restore your former smile. The crowns set on top of an implant resemble your original teeth, and they perform just as well as those originals. From aesthetics, you really can't do any better than having dental implants placed.

Another benefit of implants is that they serve to maintain good bone health, which is critical to your overall oral health and general health. Anytime you have dental implants placed, they replace the roots of your tooth, and it's those roots that anchor a tooth firmly in place and prevent it from moving around inside your mouth. When tooth roots are gone, there is a natural tendency for bone health to deteriorate and bone mass to subside.

This condition is less likely to occur when you have implants placed, and your bone mass and bone health will be preserved. In terms of durability, you can't beat dental implants. There is no more permanent solution available in dentistry that is more reliable and effective than having implants placed. The implants get fused to the jawbone and become part of it. That makes them highly stable, and as long as you take routine care of them with your dental hygiene, you can expect them to last your entire lifetime.

Other dental solutions, such as dentures, last between 5 to 10 years. Therefore, consider dental implants as the far superior, long-lasting quality solution. In addition to these benefits, you can expect that you'll be able to eat normally and usually speak with no transition period whatsoever when you have dental implants placed. That means you won't have to get used to them or practice using your new teeth to speak clearly or chew and bite food properly. With your new teeth from dental implants, they should be fully functional. Acting and feeling like real teeth!
While it might seem like dental implants are perfect, with no drawbacks to them, that's not entirely true. First of all, you can count on the process of implants taking a reasonably long time from start to finish. Once implants are surgically placed, you may have to wait as long as 6 months for those implants to become part of your jaw bone so that the next step may proceed. This may not suit you if you're looking for a quick turnaround for your tooth loss situation.
However, there's no way of shortening the time necessary for the implants to fuse with the jawbone. Anytime you conduct some surgery, the surgery site may somehow become infected. Although this is quite rare in implant surgery, it's still possible for your gums to become infected after placing implants. If an infection were to occur, you could develop periodontitis, eventually leading to bone loss.

Another possible drawback to dental implants is that it may be necessary to perform some pre-procedure to make implant surgery viable. Implants cannot be placed in a jawbone with insufficient mass to support them, so it may be necessary to treat a patient for bone grafting, to build up jawbone mass for implants. A sinus lift is performed if your sinuses are situated close to the jawbone. Gum augmentation is another process that may have to be carried out to have adequate and healthy gum tissue before implant surgery.

At Smoke Rise Dental, we make sure all patients are fully aware of needed treatment prior to beginning the implant process. In the case of needing other prior surgeries, it can increase the cost of the entire process, and it will undoubtedly increase the time needed from start to finish. Speaking of costs, that may be another potential drawback to having dental implant surgery. Even though implants placed are probably the best possible solution for a missing tooth, it's perhaps the most expensive. That's why it will be necessary for you to check with your insurance company to see if your insurance will cover any part of the procedure. Even if the cost is not covered by insurance, we offer financing options that can make it possible to have dental implants placed.

The average cost of dental implants

The cost of dental implants will always depend on how many implants you have placed and whether or not any pre-procedures are necessary before implant surgery. If you need to have a sinus lift, gum augmentation, or bone grafting performed, any of these procedures will increase the total cost of having your implants done. It is generally best practice to place one dental implant for each missing tooth, so if you have three missing teeth in your mouth, it will be necessary to get three implants.

Contrarily, if you need to replace an entire upper or lower teeth arch, it's possible to have all-on-four dental implants placed. Instead of requiring 15 dental implants, you only need to install four of them for the entire arch of upper or lower teeth. Semi-arch or full arch implants will still be reasonably expensive, but they will be much cheaper than if you had to install an implant for each missing tooth.

Another factor influencing how much dental implants cost will be who's doing the surgery and where in the country you are. If you have a highly qualified dental practitioner doing the implant surgery instead of a relative novice, it will always cost you more. Then too, there are places where geography becomes an issue because the demand for implants may be much higher than in other geographic sectors of the country.

All this being said, the cost of a single dental implant will generally range anywhere from $2,500 to $4,000. However, as can be seen from the above, quite a few factors can drive that cost up and give it a considerably higher price tag.
To replace a single tooth, an implant is placed into the jaw, given several months of time to heal, then an abutment is placed inside of the implant to provide additional stability to the eventual permanent crown. To ensure the best esthetics, we make use of high-quality, natural-looking dental porcelain to create all restorations.

One of the benefits of using dental implants to replace teeth is that you rarely need a dedicated implant for each tooth you intend to replace. For example, replacing multiple consecutive teeth can sometimes be done with a single implant, while three or more typically require just two. While this varies on a case by case basis, one thing is for sure: implant-retained bridges carry no need to modify existing teeth like you would for a traditional bridge.

Spaced-out teeth are another orthodontic issue that negatively affects the look of your smile as well as your oral health. Since patients struggling with gapped teeth are more prone to dental problems, it’s best to start treatment with Invisalign sooner rather than later. Their clear aligners can effectively bridge the gaps, providing you with a healthy, beautiful smile.

Dental Implants FAQs

What is the process for having dental implants placed?
After determining that you have sufficient jawbone mass, one dental implant will be surgically placed in your jawbone for each missing tooth. Then it will be necessary to allow adequate time, usually a few months, for the implants to fuse with the jawbone. An abutment will be attached to the implant, and an artificial tooth (crown) will be placed over the abutment.
Why are dental implants better than any other alternatives?
Dental implants are fixed in place and provide a solid anchor for your replacement teeth. They also look natural and feel natural. With proper maintenance or care, they last for a lifetime. Unlike bridges, which rely on support from surrounding teeth, implants are entirely stable independently.
How long does the process take?
The length of time necessary for the implants to fuse with the jawbone will always determine how long the process takes. The placement of implants can take place in one day, and the replacement tooth can also quickly be placed.
Is it painful to have implants placed?
No, it is not painful. Our patients decide with our doctor which sedation option is great for them. As implants are being placed, each patient is given at least a local anesthetic to cover the pain, and the other procedures are likewise not uncomfortable at all.
How successful are dental implants?
Dental implants are among the most successful procedures in dentistry. They have enjoyed a 98% success rate, and that is a remarkable statistic for any surgical procedure.
How much do they cost?
There can be a wide variation in the cost of dental implants. It will depend on how many implants are being placed and whether or not any pre-procedures such as bone-grafting are necessary. For just a single implant, it might cost you anywhere between $2,500 and $4,000.
Does my dental insurance cover the cost for dental implants?
Some insurance carriers will cover up to 50% of the cost of dental implants, while others provide no coverage at all. Before undergoing the procedure, make sure to check with your carrier, so you know what to expect in terms of responsibility for costs.
Are implants the right option for me?
If you're missing at least one tooth and you have sufficient jawbone mass to have implants placed, implants are probably a very good option for you.
Is there any reason why I should avoid implants?
There are some reasons why you might not want to have implants surgery: you may have a dental infection, you may be too young, and your jawbone isn't fully formed yet, you might have a medical condition that makes surgery hazardous, or you may not have sufficient jawbone mass to have implants placed.
If I cannot get implants, what other options will I have?
If you cannot have implants placed now because of inadequate jawbone mass or gum tissue mass, there are procedures that can overcome this. You can undergo bone-grafting to install additional jawbone mass, and you can have gum augmentation done to increase your gum tissue mass.
