What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable replacements of missing teeth.  They can be complete dentures where they replace all of the missing teeth in one of your jaws or partial dentures where they replace only the missing teeth in the jaw.  If necessary, implants can be placed to add retention and stability.

What Is The Process For Dental Implants?

The implant process can take 9-12 months.  After a tooth is removed, we like to wait approximately 3 months to allow the tooth socket to heal before evaluating the site for an implant.  If there is sufficient bone, an implant can be placed.  We need to give the jaw bone 3-9 months to fuse with the implant.  Then we can take our records for the fabrication of the implant crown.  If there is not enough bone at the missing tooth site after 3 months of healing, a bone grafting procedure will be necessary prior to implant placement.

For a patient missing all of their teeth, implant-retained overdentures has been proven to be a very viable and cost-effective treatment alternative with a success rate of 95%-100%. These dentures improve speech, esthetics, function and self-esteem as the dentures will no longer slip and have minimal movement which will minimize soreness, discomfort, and food restrictions.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

There are numerous factors that affect the total cost of the implant.  The total fee is broken down into the surgical fee and the prosthetic fee.  Some questions that need to be considered when determining the pricing are:
  • Does the patient need a Bone Graft or Sinus Lift?
  • Do we need to modify the teeth to make room for the implant crown?
  • Does the patient want to whiten first? Depending on the Lab, they may charge different fees.
  • What material are we using?
  • Does the surgeon require a surgical guide?
