Dental implants are the newest technology to replace missing teeth. Implants are titanium “posts’ that mimics the tooth root. An implant crown is then placed on the implant. The implant crown is what you think of teeth when you smile. Implants can replace a single missing tooth or be used to make sure your dentures never fall out causing an embarrassing situation. Dr. Tsang and his network of specialists can discuss the benefits of implants with you. Call to schedule an appointment to discuss how implants can help you.
Benefits of implants
- Next best thing to natural teeth. A dental implant restores the missing tooth so that it looks and feels as close to your natural tooth as possible
- Maintain your youthful appearance. A smile with teeth can sag and make you appear older. Implants will help maintain your youthful smile
- Maintain your healthy bone. Without a tooth in place, your jaw starts to lose bone over time which can lead to your face sagging and appearing older. The implant helps maintain the bone.
- Keeps your denture in place. If you already have dentures, you know how they can fall and slide around. Implants can keep them in place and allow you to eat and talk without worry.
Are implants safe?
Dental implants have been used safely for more than 30 years. Dental implants are made of surgical grade titanium which is also used for joint replacements such as knees.
Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most successful procedures with a 98% success rate.
Cost of dental implants
No two patients are alike. As such, no two treatment plans are alike. The number of appointments, procedures, and cost will vary. A custom treatment plan will be made for you by Dr. Tsang and his specialist with all estimated fees and insurance benefits.
A dental implant has a higher initial upfront cost, but over your lifetime, the implant becomes more inexpensive as it lasts longer. A bridge or crown will typically need to be replaced every 5-10 years. Please call to schedule an appointment to discuss the benefits of an implant restored tooth.
