One of the best options available in restorative dentistry is dental implants. No other dental prosthetic can look and function so close to a natural tooth. Yet not all dental implants are the same. You want an experienced dentist that can perform this delicate oral surgery to create dental implants that look great and will last the rest of your life. At Amber Hills Dental, Dr. Villamayor is that dentist. As an experienced dentist with training in implant dentistry, Dr. Villamayor can help restore your smile with beautiful, quality dental implants.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. These individual teeth are surgically placed within the jaw bone to make them part of your biological smile. Once the small posts are in place and secure, a beautifully formed dental crown is adhered to the surgical post. The result is a new tooth or teeth that look and function like your natural teeth – often they look better than your natural teeth ever did.
Dental Implants FAQs
What is the dental implants procedure like?
Placing dental implants occurs over a series of steps. First, your jawbone will be inspected and any necessary bone grafts will be performed. The next step is to place the small titanium posts into your jawbone and wait for them to heal. Once fully healed, a connective structure called an abutment will be attached and your replacement tooth can be placed.
How long do dental implants last?
When taken care of properly, dental implants can last up to 15 years or more. Their long lifespan makes them a popular method for tooth replacement and makes them well worth the investment.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Generally speaking, if you have healthy gums and enough jawbone, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. During your initial consultation, we’ll take X-rays and thoroughly discuss both your oral and overall health before moving forward with treatment.
How much do dental implants cost?
Every patient is unique and the cost of treatment ranges. At your first appointment, a customized treatment plan will be created and you will be provided with a full cost breakdown. We are dedicated to providing our patients with as many financial avenues as possible. Please visit our financial page or speak with a member of our team to learn more!
