When you need to replace your rotten or broken tooth or require an entire mouth rehabilitation, dental implants are often the ideal solution. Dental implants act as synthetic roots that are implanted into your jawbone beneath your gums. Dental implants are comprised of biocompatible titanium or zirconia that the bone will heal around. Come in for a consultation with Dr. Kliman to learn more about the different implant options!
What Are the Minimum and Maximum Ages for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are generally recommended for people of 18 years or above. Although there is no maximum age limit to receive implant treatment, the bone should be matured and fully grown.
What Is the Cost of Implant Treatment?
Implant treatment cost depends upon the procedure required for success. The cost differs whether the implant is associated with a denture or if it is being used as a single tooth. Come in for a consultation to discuss your options with Dr. Adam!
Do Medical Conditions Affect Dental Implant Treatment?
For dental implant placement, your medical history is essential. When you visit us, Dr. Adam will ask you about your medical conditions because the side effects of medications may affect the healing process. To be on the safer side, inform us about any medications that you may be taking at the time of your consultation.
Are Implants Long-lasting? How Long Do They Last?
Yes, implants are long-lasting; however, healthy oral habits, regular dental cleanings, and checkups must be practiced to ensure the long-term success of your implants. With properly placed and restored implant-supported by healthy oral habits, implants can last a lifetime.
Is the Dental Implant Procedure Painful?
It depends on the extent of the treatment process. Usually, the treatment causes sensitive gums for a few days and mild discomfort, but most patients will not need any pain killers and can return to everyday life the next day.
Is There Any Risk Associated with Implant Placement?
The placement of an implant is a minor surgical procedure that might have some side effects; however, they are a rare possibility. You can consult with Dr. Adam about the risks and other considerations involved in the implant placement.
Can Implants Be Placed Immediately after Removing Teeth?
Yes, implants can be placed immediately after tooth extraction, considering the condition of the tooth being extracted and your bone quality as well as quantity. This is known as immediate implant placement.
What Is the Difference Between White and Metal Implants?
White implants are made out of zirconia oxide and metal implants are made of medical-grade titanium. White implants are much newer and have been recently approved for use in Canada as compared to titanium implants that have been conventionally used for medical fixtures for nearly 100 years.
If Metal Implants Are Toxic to My Body, Can I Have a White One Instead?
White implants can be an excellent alternative to metal ones, but not every case is suitable for this material. So when you come in for your implant consultation, discuss it further with our dentist Dr. Adam!
