The Positive Effects of Dental Implants

Restore Your Smile

No one likes living with a gap in their smile. Our dentists complete implant treatment with lifelike restorations that perfectly resemble natural teeth, so you'll be able to smile with confidence.

Strengthen Your Bite

Unlike traditional dentures, which can be unstable and prone to slipping out of place, dental implants are firmly rooted in the jawbone. After your implant treatment is complete, you will be able to eat all of your favorite foods with no worries about your restoration coming loose.

Maintain Your Bone Health

A serious consequence of tooth loss is jawbone atrophy. When tooth roots are missing, the bone loses necessary stimulation and begins to recede, which can result in distortion of your features and additional oral health concerns. Dental implants fuse with the jawbone to keep it strong and healthy.

"Patients with Missing Teeth Benefit from Dental Implants"

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that support crowns, bridges, or dentures. The dentists at Newport Family Dental Care in Newport, TN, provide dental implants to patients with missing teeth. Most patients with missing teeth can benefit from implant dentistry.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium rods that act as prosthetic tooth roots and support dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. During a surgical procedure, a dentist or oral surgeon makes incisions in the gums and places the posts into the jawbone. Over a period of months, the titanium in the implants naturally fuses with the bone, resulting in a secure foundation that is just as strong as natural teeth. Because of their durability, stability, and longevity, dental implants are considered to be modern dentistry's best solution for tooth loss.

Bicon® Implants Advanced Materials & Better Results

At Newport Family Dental Care in Newport, TN, we use a variety of different implant brands based on the unique needs of each individual patient. However, the implant we prefer and use most often is manufactured by a company called Bicon. We like to work with this brand of implant because it allows us to reduce the number of necessary surgeries for patients with limited bone. 

Don't Be Ashamed Tooth Loss Is a Common Problem

By the time they reach the age of 44 years, approximately 70 percent of adults in the United States have lost at least one of their permanent teeth. Tooth loss may be the result of trauma to the mouth, periodontal disease, or even tooth decay. Approximately 178 million people in the country have at least one missing tooth and this number is expected to increase over the next two decades because of periodontal disease.

How Are Dental Implants Placed? A Treatment Timeline

Implant treatment usually takes around six months to complete.
Implant treatment usually takes around six months to complete.

Implant Placement

At your first surgery, one of our doctors will first administer your desired level of anesthesia or sedation. Then, he will make a small incision in your gums. Next, he will place the titanium implant through the incision and into your bone. Finally, he will place a temporary restoration or simply suture the incision shut.

First Healing Period

Once your implant is in place, a healing period of three to six months will be required for the implant to integrate with the bone. If you were fitted with a temporary restoration, it will conceal the gap in your smile until your following appointment.

Abutment Placement

After the implant has fused with the bone, you will return to our office in Newport, TN, for the placement of an abutment. An abutment is a piece that connects the implant to the crown, bridge, or denture–think of it as a trailer hitch. This procedure may require the gums to be pulled back again.

Second Healing Period

A second, shorter healing period of about two weeks will be required for your gums to heal fully around the abutment.

Restoration Placement

After your soft tissue has healed, you will be ready for the placement of your custom-made crown, bridge, or denture. One of our dentists will securely fasten your dental restoration to the abutment and you can leave our Newport office with a functional, attractive smile.

What Does Implant Dentistry Cost?

The cost of treatment with dental implants will vary from patient to patient based on a variety of factors, including:

  • The amount of preparatory treatment needed
  • The health of the gums and jawbone
  • The number of teeth you are missing
  • The quality of crown, bridge, or denture used
  • The brand of implant used
  • The level of sedation requested

The final cost of treatment with dental implants is usually somewhere between $3,000 and $5,000. We consider the cost of implants to be a worthwhile investment in your dental health as dental implants help prevent the development of serious issues and provide a priceless boost in confidence. We offer several financing options to help our patients afford dental implants. For more information on financing or what dental implants would cost for your specific case, please contact us today.

Why Dental Implants Are Superior to Dentures and Bridges

For decades, dentistry's best answer to the problem of missing teeth was the use of traditional dentures and bridges. However, dental implants are the gold standard in modern dentistry and preferred for several reasons, including:

  • Lower risk of jaw bone atrophy
  • Reduced risk of needing a tooth extraction
  • No slipping, clacking, or other noise
  • Improved eating and speaking ability
  • Reduced tooth sensitivity
  • Preservation of remaining healthy teeth
