Dental Implants – Rochester, MN
Dental Implants are Improving Rochester Smiles
Have you lost one or more teeth? This can be a devastating experience for both your oral health and your quality of life. Even worse, doing nothing about it can lead to jawbone deterioration, higher risk of infection, and additional tooth loss over time. If you’re ready to complete your smile, Dr. Nicholas Brong has the solution you need with dental implants. Our team at Zumbro Family Dental offers multiple options to fill the empty spaces.
Benefits of Dental Implants
The secret behind the success of dental implants is the fact that they replace both the root and crown of your tooth. Traditional solutions only replace the crown. While this does restore some oral functions, lack of a root will still cause the jawbone to deteriorate. Dental implants are the only available treatment to replicate the full structure of the tooth to protect your bone density.
Due to this unique process, dental implants offer exceptional benefits that are not possible with conventional treatments.
- High Success Rate: The titanium, biocompatible post allows dental implants to offer over a 95% success rate.
- Long-Term Solution: With the right aftercare, they can last for a lifetime.
- Protect Natural Teeth: Dental implants do not relay on your remaining natural teeth for support. They will not be changed to stay strong and healthy.
- Improves Oral Health: Dental implants restore your bone density to lower the risk of infection, tooth decay, and additional tooth loss.
- Look and Feel Natural: Dental implants closely look and function naturally. You will enjoy an increased biting force of over 70% when compared to dentures.
Indications for Dental Implants
Restoring your smile with Zumbro Family Dental is easy. Your implant dentist will create a customized treatment plan to fill the empty spaces. Depending on how many teeth you are missing, there is a procedure that is right for you.
Missing Single Tooth
A single tooth can be replaced using an implant post, an abutment, and a crown. The implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone. After if has fused to the post, an abutment is placed on it. This is a connector piece to allow a dental crown to be attached.
Missing Several Teeth
To bridge the gap between several missing teeth, dental implants can be used to anchor your prosthetic teeth in place. As an alternative to a traditional bridge, crowns are not needed. Instead, 1 to 2 implant posts are used to hold it in place.
Missing All Teeth
If traditional dentures have failed to work for you in the past, you can enjoy the stability of dental implants. An average of 4 implant posts are used to anchor your denture in place. You can chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of the procedure is determined by your individual treatment plan. There are several things that will influence the price, such as if you need a single implant or a 3-untit bridge. In addition, if any additional procedures are needed, you can also expect the cost to increase. While they may cost more than traditional options, you will make a long-term investment because your new smile can last for decades.
