Dental Implants in Bloomington, IL

Trauma, tooth decay, and gum disease cause seven out of ten American adults to lose their natural teeth. Even the loss of one tooth can have a substantial effect on your self-confidence. Dental implants restore your appearance and the function of lost teeth. Here are some basic facts to help you understand the dental implants procedure.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants replace the missing roots of your lost teeth. Endosteal and subperiosteal are the most common types of dental implants. Endosteal dental implants are inserted into your jawbone in the vacancy left by your missing tooth. Subperiosteal dental implants are placed on top of your jawbone, but under your gum tissue. Endosteal dental implants are made of a titanium anchor, a connecting device known as an abutment and an artificial tooth crown.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Every case is unique. Your overall dental implants cost will depend on several factors:

  • The number of dental implants required
  • The type of dental implants
  • Crown and post material
  • Additional procedures, such as bone grafts
  • Dental implants insurance coverage

Does My Insurance Policy Pay for Dental Implants?

A typical dental plan doesn’t include elective treatments such as the dental implants procedure, but some may provide partial coverage. Check with your insurance provider for details about your dental implants insurance coverage. If you don’t have insurance, we can help you get the affordable dental implants you desire. Contact our office for details about our convenient financing options and payment plans that can help you work the dental implants cost into your budget.

An Easy Guide to Dental Implants Procedure Steps

The dental implants procedure is complex and takes many months to complete. Here is an outline that explains the step-by-step process of getting dental implants.

  1. During the first step, your jaw and mouth are prepared for surgery. If you don’t have enough healthy jawbone, your dentist may perform a bone graft.
  2. Next, your dentist will make an incision in your gums and place the dental implants into your jawbone.
  3. Following the placement of the dental implants, a healing period occurs in which the dental implants and surrounding bone fuse or bond together.
  4. After the implants integrate with bone tissue, your dentist will place small connecting devices called abutments on top of the implants.
  5. In the final stage, a natural-looking permanent crown is set into place.

What Are the Long-Term Benefits of Dental Implants?

As one of our dental implants patients, you’ll enjoy all of the following benefits:

  • An end to the complex cleaning procedures of dentures
  • A natural-looking smile
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Clearer speech and increased chewing force
  • Improved jaw stability

What Is the Expected Lifespan of Dental Implants?

Your overall dental health and oral hygiene and the location of your implants in your jaw affect longevity, but, in general, you can expect your dental implants to last for many years or even for the rest of your life. After getting dental implants in Bloomington, follow your dentist’s hygiene recommendations, and schedule regular checkups and cleanings.

How Do I Care for New Dental Implants After Surgery?

You may experience some minor pain or discomfort after your surgery. Over-the-counter pain medications should relieve it. Once your mouth has healed, you can care for your new dental implants just as you care for your natural teeth. Brush, floss and use mouth rinse as your dentist recommends. Pay attention to the quality of your oral hygiene, and keep your appointments for dental exams and professional teeth cleanings.

How Will I Know If I’m a Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you have a healthy jawbone and missing teeth, you’re likely to be an excellent candidate for affordable dental implants, but only a qualified dentist can determine eligibility. To find out if getting dental implants in Bloomington is right for you, contact us today to schedule a professional evaluation.
