Why Choose Peak Dental Care for Dental Implants?

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants themselves are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed below your gumline and into your jawbone to replace the missing root structure of a tooth. Due to their biocompatible nature, they’re able to naturally fuse with the jawbone to provide it with necessary blood flow and support to keep it from deteriorating. Once they’ve fused with the bone, small, metal connector pieces called abutments are attached to the top of them. These will hold a customized bridge, crown, or denture in place to restore your smile.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

There are four main steps to the dental implant process. However, if you require preparatory procedures, like a bone graft or sinus lift, you may find that you have five steps to your treatment. You can find that out by visiting Dr. Baioni for a consultation. Below, we’ve outlined the four primary steps so you can better understand the process:

  1. Dental Implant Consultation. During the consultation, you’ll learn whether you’re a good candidate for the treatment. Our team will also lay out a customized treatment timeline for you so you know what to expect from the process.
  2. Surgery. We refer all of our patients out to specialists in the area for their dental implant surgery; however, once this step is complete, our team will be able to restore your dental implants for you locally.
  3. Osseointegration & Abutment Placement. After your implants have been placed, they’ll fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Then, abutments, or small, metal connector pieces will be attached to the top of them.
  4. Restoring the Dental Implants. Depending on how many teeth you’re missing, we’ll either attach a customized crown, bridge, or denture to your dental implants to complete your smile.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have a wide array of unique benefits to offer due to their unique structure that sets them apart from traditional restorations. Some of the advantages that you can enjoy with dental implants include:

Who Can Dental Implants Help?

The best candidates for dental implants include patients who are missing any number of teeth, are committed to good oral health, and don’t have any underlying or untreated medical conditions that impact their immune system. Dr. Baioni will break down the pros and cons of this treatment depending on your unique health and situation to help you gain a clear picture of whether dental implants or traditional restorations would be the better option to restore your smile. He’ll also outline a customized treatment plan for you during your initial consultation.

Missing One Tooth

If you’re missing a single tooth, we can restore it by placing one dental implant in the space and attaching a customized dental crown. It will complete your smile without involving the alteration of your surrounding, healthy teeth.

Missing Multiple Teeth

For multiple missing teeth, we can place two dental implants on either end of the gap in your smile to hold a dental bridge. This will keep your surrounding teeth from drifting out of place and ruining the alignment of your arch.

Missing All of Your Teeth

Using anywhere from four to eight dental implants, we can secure an entire denture to your mouth, eliminating any slipping or shifting and allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods with ease. They’ll look and feel completely natural, and you won’t need to worry about taking them out of your mouth each night.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of getting dental implants depends on your unique situation, like whether you require any preparatory procedures or are missing several teeth instead of just one. All of these factors will alter the price of your treatment, which Dr. Baioni will discuss with you during your initial consultation. Our team is happy to file insurance claims on your behalf to help you maximize your benefits, and if necessary, we can discuss other financing options with you as well.
