Enjoy Life Again with Dental Implants

Dentures and dental bridges used to be the only options for replacing missing teeth. But now, dental implants offer a variety of tooth loss solutions that not only replace missing teeth but also restore your ability to eat, smile, and speak without worry.

What are Dental Implants?

Implants are screw-like synthetic structures that are surgically placed under the gums and anchored to the jawbone. The implant acts like the roots of a natural tooth and is typically made of titanium because of its ability to fuse with bone and work as a part of the structure. Depending on your needs, we may recommend endosteal implants or All-on-4® implants.

Our Implant Solutions: What are All-on-4® Implants and Endosteal Implants?

In cases of complete tooth loss, we may recommend All-on-4® implants. All-on-4® implants can replace all of your lower or upper teeth with four screws that secure the implant to the jawbone. The implant serves as a permanent denture, without the hassle of slippage or diet restrictions that come with traditional removable dentures.

Endosteal implants are the most common type of implant if you are looking to replace one or a few individual teeth. If only one tooth is missing, or several teeth are missing that are not next to each other, Dr. Saluja can use a single implant to secure a dental crown.

Schedule an implant consultation with Dr. Saluja to find out if dental implants are right for you.

What is the Process of Receiving a Dental Implant?

A step-by-step dental implant process includes:

  • Initial Consultation: During an initial examination, Dr. Saluja will determine if you’re a candidate for implants and choose the treatment method that’s right for you. X-rays are taken and Dr. Saluja will discuss the choices available to you. The condition of your jawbone will be assessed and if there isn’t sufficient bone density to support an implant, a bone graft may be required.
  • Placement of the Dental Implants: Your implants will be placed during an in-office surgical procedure. If necessary, any damaged teeth will be removed first. Then, Dr. Saluja will place your implants. Dr. Saluja may prescribe pain relievers and antibiotics to ensure proper healing and that you remain comfortable following the procedure.
  • Healing Process: It may take up to a few months for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor it in place. During this time, a temporary restoration may be placed.
  • Restoration Placement: After your mouth has healed and Dr. Saluja has determined that the implant has securely fused with your jawbone, your permanent restoration will be placed. Your crown, bridge, or full-arch denture is made to look like your natural teeth.
  • Follow-up Appointments and Home Care: A follow up appointment will allow Dr. Saluja to ensure the area is healing according to plan.Implants require a regular oral hygiene schedule and proper care to ensure they last for many years to come.

It’s important to schedule regular dental checkups so we can assess the condition of your dental implants.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

It’s always best to visit Dr. Saluja for a consultation to determine if dental implants are right for you. In general, a candidate should have proper bone density and a strong immune system for the best dental implant results. In all cases, dental implants require a regular oral hygiene routine and good overall health. Smokers and women who are pregnant may not be eligible for dental implants.

At Art Dentistry Center, we are dedicated to helping our patients overcome tooth loss and enjoy a complete smile.

With proper care and routine checkups, implants can last up to 25 years or more. It can last a lifetime, but the restoration - crown, multi-tooth bridge, or full-arch denture - may need to be replaced due to normal wear.

Depending on which procedure is right for you, implants can cost from $3,000 for a single implant to $90,000 for a full set of upper and lower teeth. The best way to determine the cost is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Saluja so you can discuss your options. Flexible financing is available.

We also offer different kinds of pain management and sedation. Pain management may also be discussed at your consultation or if you’re feeling uncomfortable during the procedure.

With any surgery, there are risks, however the benefits of having implants far outweigh the risks. Side effects are usually minor and may include pain, swelling, and bleeding. As long as you choose a highly qualified and experienced dentist for your implant procedure, like Dr. Saluja, the risks are usually minor. Because implants are made from a biocompatible titanium material, they are typically very safe.

Once in a while a more serious infection can occur (peri-implantitis that can lead to implant failure that could require removal of the implant and additional treatments. But this can usually be prevented with proper care and oral hygiene.
