Frequently Asked Questions About Single Dental Implants
Single implants are used to permanently replace a missing tooth.
To minimise further complications, even a single missing tooth must be replaced, and an implant post is usually the best option since it prevents bone loss and ensures that existing teeth do not slide out of place. Because the implant is inserted into the jawbone surgically to support a new tooth, unlike a dental bridge, it is not necessary to grind down the adjacent teeth.
The time it takes to place dental implants depends on the techniques used by your dentist and the location of the tooth, but it usually takes around an hour to two hours per implant.
After the osseointegration (or the process of connection between the implant and the surrounding bone tissue), which may take three to nine months, your dentist will begin making the crown to be placed over the implant post.
On average, it takes approximately four to six months to heal a dental implant. This gives the patient time to heal completely before the placement of the crown.
This type of restorative dentistry treatment usually requires several steps. There is more than one healing stage, the length of time it takes to heal will be determined by several factors. including the number of teeth to be replaced, the success of osseointegration, the patient’s health, and other considerations.
Although most restorative procedures require sufficient bone structure to be an ideal candidate and ensure the success of the treatment, you may still consider dental implants even if you have weakened or insufficient bone.
There are a few options, and which one you choose will be determined by the amount of bone loss you have and the location of the dental implants. A bone graft or a zygomatic dental implant will be required for dental implants with extensive bone loss. The dentist will recommend the best technique to ensure the effectiveness of the implant and your safety.
The actual cost of a dental implant may still vary depending on the type of implant, the location of the implant site, the dental office, and etc. It is difficult to discuss the estimate of cost without a proper assessment of the patient. However, according to the annual survey of the Australian Dental Association, the average cost of a dental implant in Western Australia may range between $3,903 and $4,938.68.
