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 dental offices in the area that can complete the entire treatment in one convenient location.

Why Choose Infinity Dental Care for Dental Implants?

Benefits of Dental Implants

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:

One of the best things about dental implants is that they are so versatile. No matter how many teeth a patient might be missing, they can be used to give them a strong and attractive smile:

Missing Single Tooth

A dental implant root and the custom-made dental crown can be positioned between two healthy teeth without them needing to be altered at all. This is a more conservative approach compared to a traditional bridge in which the surrounding dental structure has to be filed down in order to support the prosthetic.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Implant crowns can be placed anywhere in the mouth, and a small number of implants can also be used to support a prosthetic that replaces numerous teeth at the same time such as a bridge or partial denture. Compared to traditional dental prosthetics, implant-retained ones tend to have a better fit and more durability.

Missing All Teeth

All it takes is just four to six well-placed implants to restore an entire row of teeth with a custom-made full denture. This is much more cost effective than replacing each tooth with individual implants, plus implant dentures give patients a much stronger bite compared to regular removable ones.

How Dental Implants Work

If you go to your typical dental office to get dental implants, the first thing they will do is refer you to an 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 dental office.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

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.

Are dental implants safe?

Do I need to get a bone graft to get implants?

During your initial consultation with Dr. Kalluri, she will take several images of your facial structure and jawbone to make sure you’re a good candidate for dental implants. If you’ve been missing teeth for a while, it could result in jawbone deterioration because there haven’t been the roots of teeth there to stimulate the area. In order to make sure that your implants will successfully integrate with your jaw, it will need to have enough density. If it doesn’t you may need to get a bone graft before you can move forward with the surgery. Either way, Dr. Kalluri will let you know during your consultation.

Are there any risks of having the surgery?

With most patients, they’d like to understand the risks associated with surgery and what to expect afterward. Most treated people report that they only experience minimal pain or discomfort. Your implant dentist in Hillsboro will write a prescription for pain medication or antibiotics if necessary.

After your operation, you may experience bruised nerves in your lips, cheeks, and tongue, so it could cause a numbing sensation. If you begin to notice symptoms of this, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Kalluri for peace-of-mind.

What causes implants to fail?

Dental implants boast an incredibly high success rate of 95 percent, but occasionally they do fail. Some common reasons this may occur include:

If you have any questions about what could increase your risk of implant failure, be sure to ask them during your consultation. We’d be happy to put your worries to rest!
