Benefits of Dental Implants
Why are dental implants the best option?
Dental implants offer Dr. Alas’s patients a secured approach to replace a missing tooth, the ability to eat most foods again, and a confident smile.
Dental implants offer our patients a secured, aesthetically pleasing approach to replace a missing tooth, restoring the ability to eat most foods, and to smile with confidence. Implants will not affect surrounding teeth like traditional bridges, and unlike removable dentures, there is no risk of the implants slipping out of place. As soon as treatment is complete, dental implants remain a stable and durable part of your smile. They also stop the bone loss that occurs where a tooth is missing and help to preserve the bone mass and density around the implant site.
About Implant Dentistry
Most people think an implant is the actual artificial tooth - this is a common misconception.
What are dental implants?
An implant is a man-made material which takes place as the root of a tooth on which a crown (single tooth), bridge (multiple connected teeth), or denture is secured. Divided into two basic groups, implants can be inserted into the bone or placed on top of the bone. The type of implant used is based on the amount of bone available.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Anyone in his mid to late teens and older is able to be fitted for implants, as long as his health allows. Even if you have been told int he past that you are not eligible for implants, Dr. Alas has the education, experience, and training necessary to work with you in order to give you the smile that you want.
How long can dental implants last?
Dental implants can last as long as a lifetime with the proper professional maintenance and home care.
Does insurance cover cosmetic and/or dental implant procedures?
Like always, this is dependant on your insurance plan, which is contracted between your employer and your insurance company. Fortunately, our office coordinator is an expert with insurance claims, and submits forms after each appointment in order to maximize your allowable benefits.
