What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant can be defined as an artificial tooth root which holds the dental crown, bridge, or denture in place. It is made of a bio-compatible material which fuses with the jawbone.
Unlike traditional alternatives, dental implants cannot be taken out of the mouth because they are surgically placed in the jawbone.
Benefits of Dental Implants
High Success Rate
A 2017 study by F. De Angelis and colleagues suggests a survival rate of 91.96% at 10-18 years of follow-up for dental implants. 2
Renewed Smile and Confidence
Most of our clients are happy with dental implants because of enhanced appearance and smile. Read more about dental implant reviews in the testimonial section.
Dental implants are termed as close to natural teeth because they mimic the latter.
Prevent Bone Loss
As per the AAID (American Academy of Implant Dentistry), dental implants preserve and stimulate natural bone and prevent bone loss.
Dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone thus giving lasting results.
Freedom from Dentures
Denture wearers sure know the pain and uneasiness caused by them. They wobble inside the mouth and sometimes even cause trouble while speaking. But dental implants are stable and don’t move around in the mouth.
Do Not Interfere With Adjacent Teeth
Unlike bridges, dental implants don’t need grinding down of adjacent teeth. Instead, they provide a solid foundation for overdentures and alike.
Prevents Facial Sagging
When the teeth are missing, the facial skin tends to sag and gives a much older look. But with dental implants, the skin does not sag. Instead, they give a much younger look.
Alternatives to Dental Implants
Some of the non-implant alternatives include:
If a single tooth needs to be restored then a fixed bridge is frequently used. It is supported by natural teeth and is the most common option to an implant-supported restoration. In a bridge, the replacement tooth is called a pontic and is fixed in between the two crowns.
In a bridge, the neighboring teeth are grinded or prepared for receiving a dental crown, whereas, a dental implant is self-supporting and does not need support of the adjoining teeth.
Dentures and Overdentures
A traditional denture is held in place with clasps or adhesives by the adjacent teeth. Although not as stable as dental implants, it still widely used for replacement of missing teeth.
These are implants topped with dentures.
So, how much do full denture implants cost? We are sharing the prices of dentures and overdentures in Los Algodones, Mexico:
|Partial Denture, Metal and Flexible Frame||Less Than $500|
|Full Denture, Immediate or Healing (Upper or Lower)||Less Than $300|
|Implant Supported Overdenture, Removable (with 2 implants)||Less Than $2,700|
|Implant Supported Overdenture, Removable (with 3 implants)||Less Than $3,800|
Besides being used as a cover or cap for damaged teeth, a crown can also be used to enhance the shape or alignment of teeth. They are available in various materials, such as porcelain-fused-to-metal, gold and ceramic crowns.
DentaVacation attributes its success to the clinics and dental professionals it works with. We facilitate various medical procedures coupled with abundant guidance from our team of professionals.
Dental implants can be life changing for those suffering from tooth loss or edentulism (no teeth). They give individuals a second chance for a healthy and beautiful smile.
