Dental Implants in MARYSVILLE

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small pieces of titanium metal that are surgically implanted into your jaw and gums. Over time, the titanium can heal and permanently bond with the jaw bone, functioning as an artificial tooth root. Then, a dental implant restoration like a crown can be attached to the implant, replacing your missing tooth and restoring your smile.

At Montgomery Family Dental, Marysville dentist Dr. Katie Montgomery specializes in dental implants. If you’re looking for a permanent, cost-effective, and natural way to restore one or more missing teeth, we’re here to help. Contact us today to schedule your appointment, and get the help you need.

How It Works: The Dental Implant Process

initial consultation

Before you can get a dental implant, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Katie Montgomery. She’ll examine your mouth, and make sure that dental implants are the right choice for replacing your missing teeth.

Implant placement surgery

At your next appointment, Dr. Montgomery will clean and numb the treatment area, and administer sedation, if needed. Then, she will create a small opening in the gums and jaw and install a small titanium implant. She will clean and suture the area, then repeat this process if you’re getting multiple implants.

Healing & recovery

It takes about 1-2 weeks to heal from your procedure, but it will take up to 3-6 months for your implants to permanently attach to your gums and jaw bone. You’ll come in for a few follow-ups during this time.

Building your restoration

During your follow-ups at Montgomery Family Dental, Dr. Montgomery will take digital impressions and photos of your teeth. She will work with our partner dental lab and use these to build a dental restoration, such as a crown or a set of implant-supported dentures.

Single-Tooth Dental Implants

Single-tooth dental implants are the most common type of implant. They consist of a ceramic dental crown (false tooth) that attaches to a single metal dental implant. Single-tooth implants look and feel completely natural, and they are a fantastic choice for patients who are missing one or several teeth in Marysville.

Full-Arch Dental Implants

Full-arch dental implants are a good alternative to traditional dentures. They replace the upper, lower, or both rows of teeth with a full set of permanent or removable dentures. These dentures attach to a series of 4-6 dental implants, which means they won’t move or shift when you eat, speak, or chew.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

You may be a good candidate for dental implants if you have one or more missing or severely damaged teeth. Dr. Katie Montgomery will evaluate and take x-rays of your teeth and jawbone to determine your suitability for dental implants.

Patients with dental decay or gum disease may require prior treatment before getting dental implants. That’s because far-advanced gum disease destroys the gums and bone tissue beneath them. As such, these patients may not have adequate bone matter to support the dental implants.

Dentists recommend bone grafting for patients with insufficient bone for the implants. Alternatively, they can settle for zygomatic implants, which involve placing the dental implants into the cheekbones instead of the jawbone since gum disease doesn’t affect the cheekbones.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

The most significant benefit of dental implants is that it improves your overall appearance, giving you a complete set of teeth for a beautiful smile. What’s more, these implants are fabricated to match the exact specifications of your teeth, specifically the shape and color, resulting in a natural-looking smile.

Dental implants also restore full functionality to your mouth. Missing teeth can cause issues with chewing and biting, greatly limiting your diet. It also leads to problems with articulation that can affect your quality of life. Dental implants restore full functionality to your mouth and teeth allowing articulate speech and proper feeding.

Lastly, dental implants are extremely comfortable and fuse into the jawbone to become part of your mouth. Moreover, they are permanent fixtures that last decades without needing repair or replacement.

Are Dental Implants Covered By Insurance?

Insurance providers typically cover dental implants if a dentist deems them medically necessary. However, some providers may partially cover cosmetic dental implants. This means they’ll only cover a portion of the cost (usually 50%), and the remainder will be added to your deductible. It’s important to check with your insurance provider to see if they cover dental implants.

What Is the Dental Implant Healing Process Like?

You’ll likely experience mild pain and discomfort in the affected region after the surgery. This is perfectly normal, and the dentist will advise you on the best OTC painkiller to help with the pain. You can also use an ice pack to minimize swelling on the side of the affected area.

Healing after dental implants typically takes three to six months. The healing takes place in two phases. The first phase involves healing the gum tissue after the dentist embeds the dental implants into your jawbone. This usually takes two to three days, but maintaining proper oral hygiene and avoiding smoking can help accelerate the healing.

The second healing phase involves the healing of the bone tissue and osseointegration. It takes three to six months for the jawbone to completely heal and osseointegrate with the dental implant.
