How can dental implants help if you are missing teeth?

They replace missing teeth and are an affordable dental solution for people who have lost teeth due to gum disease, trauma, or other reasons. They are more durable and convenient than traditional dentures and can restore a strong foundation for the patient’s teeth and jaw.

Dental implants are made of titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone. A tooth implant can replace a missing tooth or stabilize a dental bridge or implant-supported denture. After the implant has fused to your jawbone, a dental crown is custom-made to match your natural teeth.

Will they look like my natural teeth?

One of the advantages is that they closely resemble natural teeth, allowing you to eat and speak normally. The porcelain crowns attached to the implant post will look like a natural tooth in color and shape for a seamless look. In addition, the implant-supported teeth will be color-matched for a healthy smile, even with a dental bridge or complete dentures.

A dental implant is made of the following parts:

  • The implant: A titanium screw that acts as the replacement tooth root and fuses to the jawbone
  • The abutment: A permanent connector that supports a tooth or set of teeth
  • The permanent crown: The part of the implant that you can see and looks like your natural tooth

Dental Implant Options at Azure Dental SF

At Azure, we offer several tooth implant options in San Francisco to improve oral health and give you back a beautiful smile. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are implant specialists and can provide the tooth replacement options you need based on your specific case.

Types of Implants

  • Single Tooth Implant: If you have a missing tooth, we can replace it with a single implant. The implant dentist will place the titanium post into the jaw bone, and an artificial tooth will be attached to the implant post.
  • Full Mouth Restoration: If you are missing many teeth, we can provide a full-mouth restoration. A complete mouth restoration involves placing implants in both the upper and lower jaws. In addition, for patients with tooth loss from periodontal disease, we can reconstruct the jaw bone with bone grafting and oral surgery to prepare the area for dental implants.
  • Same-Day Implants: We offer same-day dental implants with temporary, fully functional teeth placed by our oral surgeon in one visit.

Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of dental implants varies depending on the patient’s needs. We offer financing to make them affordable to everyone.

Some of the factors that will determine the cost of your implants include:

  • The number of implants: The number of implants you need will affect the cost of your treatment. Single implant placement will be cheaper than multiple implants or full-mouth restoration.
  • Your provider’s experience: Board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the Bay Area may have different pricing depending on their experience level and training.
  • The complexity of your procedure: Cases that require additional oral surgery, due to their complexity, will be more expensive. If bone grafting or full maxillofacial surgery is required, the cost of these procedures will certainly be higher.

Dental implant surgery can range from $3,000 for a single implant to over $50,000 for full mouth reconstruction. It truly depends on your oral health and your specific needs. You should contact your dental insurance company to determine if any of your implant treatment is covered under your insurance plan.
