Whenever a patient who is interested in replacing their missing teeth comes to see us, our first recommendation is usually dental implants. Why? Because they simply offer the best solution any way you look at it. They’re extremely strong, durable, and they have the most natural appearance compared to all other options. They can be used to replace any number of teeth for a lifetime to come, and thanks to our dentists’ collaborative approach, we’re one of the few offices in the area that can complete the entire treatment in one convenient location.
What makes dental implants so special? The way they work is actually pretty straightforward. Instead of just replacing the crown of a tooth (the part you can see), implants also restore the root structure underneath the gums. A small titanium post is placed into the jawbone to provide support for a new crown, bridge, or denture. This comprehensive approach offers several advantages compared to other treatments:
If you go to your typical dental office to get dental implants, the first thing they will do is refer you to and outside specialist to have your new roots placed into your jawbone. Instead, at Infinity Dental Care, we bring the specialist to you! Dr. Kalluri who has performed the implant procedure countless times, and she always does it using X-Guide technology. This allows her to come up with extremely precise treatment plans for each patient using a digital 3D model of their teeth and jaw.
Once a patient has received their implants, they’ll be given time to heal, and then they’ll return to Infinity Dental Care to have their new teeth attached. Thanks to our all-in-one approach, we’re able to save patients time, money, and stress compared to your average practice.
The cost of the dental implant procedure can vary quite a bit from patient to patient depending on how many implants they need, where they are located in the mouth, and what kind of restoration is used. Despite their higher upfront cost compared to regular bridges and dentures, they actually tend to help patients save money overall thanks to their longevity. While more traditional treatments typically need to be completely redone every five to seven years, compounding their cost, dental implants can easily last for the rest of a patient’s life, meaning they’ll spend thousands less in periodic maintenance.
