A dental implant consists of a titanium screw that is placed in the jawbone. It serves as a stable platform to secure your new tooth. At our office in Saint John, we only provide implant restoration services for now. If you need our help or want to know whether implants are for you, don’t hesitate to communicate with us!
A dental implant acts as a tooth’s root. A titanium post is placed into the jawbone where it serves as basis for an artificial tooth or a bridge. Unlike traditional dentures, implants cannot become loose. They do not need other healthy teeth to be fastened to. This permanent procedure requires having strong healthy jawbones. There are two types of teeth replacements involving dental implants:
Many insurance plans do provide some financial coverage. Our office will help you apply for the maximum amount of coverage allowed by your plan and apply it towards your treatment. We also offer affordable financing options for qualifying patients.
The fee for dental implants depends on several factors, including the number of teeth being replaced and the number of dental implants required to support your replacement teeth. Some additional procedures may be required prior to the placement of your dental implants to ensure the long-term health of your dental implants. To obtain a specific fee estimate, it is necessary to have a periodontist examine your mouth. After a thorough diagnostic examination and radiographs, we will recommend the treatment that is best for you.
When dental implants are used in combination with modern restorative dentistry, their appearance, comfort and function are very likely to exceed your expectations. Often they are hard to tell apart from your natural teeth.
Your new teeth must be cared for and checked regularly, just like your natural teeth. Brush and floss as recommended. See your dentist in six months, or more frequently if so advised.
We’re welcoming new patients. All of us and “Floss” can’t wait to meet you.
