If patients are in need of a single tooth replacement, a single dental implant is able to fill the gap with ease!
Single dental implants are placed with single screw-like posts and topped with a dental crown that is made to look like the patient’s natural teeth.
Single dental implants in Minneapolis, MN provide a great deal of stability to a patient’s jawbone, keeping it healthy and strong. Dental implants can improve appearance, restore confidence, and promote better oral health.
All-on-4 dental implants are designed for patients who have significant tooth loss or severely damaged teeth.
This procedure involves placing four implants per jaw to support a full arch of teeth, eliminating the need for individual implants for each tooth. All-on-4 implants are a cost-effective and efficient solution that can restore oral function and improve the appearance of the smile in just one day.
All-On-4 Denture Implants in Minneapolis, MN offer a stable, permanent solution that requires minimal downtime and provides long-term benefits.
Many patients suffer from dental anxiety, which can make receiving dental implants challenging.
IV sedation dentistry is a safe and effective solution that can help patients relax during dental procedures. Administered by a qualified professional, IV sedation produces a state of deep relaxation and calmness while allowing patients to remain conscious and responsive.
This can make dental implant surgery more comfortable and reduce stress, ultimately leading to better patient outcomes.
Dental implants in Minneapolis, MN are lifelike replacement teeth that are composed of only three parts: a titanium screw-like post, a natural looking and functional dental crown and an abutment piece that connects everything together.
The implant post is surgically placed within your jawbone and will fuse to the bone naturally, just as if it was a normal tooth root.
The abutment piece is placed into the implant and rests above the gumline, providing a suitable surface for the dental crown to be permanently cemented.
The crown looks like a natural tooth and allows you to eat, chew and speak just like you naturally would before tooth loss!
The implant part of a dental implant (the part that is placed into the jawbone) should last a lifetime. The restoration (the tooth crown, bridge, or over-denture) will need to be replaced about every 10-15 years.
The process to receive dental implants is quite comfortable when you partner with our oral surgeons. We rely on the latest advancements to ensure that you feel no pain during surgery and enjoy a quick healing process.
The cost to receive dental implants will vary depending upon a number of factors. These include whether you need other ancillary treatments such as extractions or bone grafting. Plus, your dental or healthcare insurance may pay for part of your procedure. When you come for your consultation, we can talk to you about many different financial arrangements so you can afford dental implants.
Most adults with one missing tooth or many missing teeth can receive dental implants. However, you may not be an immediate candidate for the procedure. Bone loss, untreated gum disease, and other issues may make it necessary for you to receive other treatments prior to receiving dental implants. At your initial examination, we will let you know whether you are a candidate right away.
Even people with bone loss can receive dental implants. They will just require extra care in the form of a bone grafting or sinus lift procedure. For candidates that have severe bone loss, we have solutions such as pterygoid and zygomatic dental implants in Minneapolis, MN.
Our dental implant success rate is very high thanks to our step-by-step process. You can reduce the chance of any problems after dental implant surgery by following the post-surgical instructions you receive and letting us know about any issues as soon as they occur.
It can take several months for your mouth to fully heal from a dental implant placement surgery. However, you will be able to use your restoration very soon after the day you receive your implants. This allows you to eat and speak naturally, as well as feel good about the way you look in person and in pictures.
