When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are a popular and effective option. However, with so many different types and brands of implants available, it can be challenging to know which ones fit you best. Below are some key factors to consider when choosing dental implants.
Qualified And Experienced Implant Dentist
A dentist specializing in implant surgery will have the knowledge and skills necessary to properly place and maintain your implants. Your general dentist may also be able to refer you to a trusted specialist in your area.
Type Of Implant
There are two main types of dental implants: endosteal and subperiosteal. The dentist places endosteal implants directly into the jawbone, which are the most common. On the other hand, they put the subperiosteal implants on top of the jawbone. Patients who do not have enough healthy jawbones to support endosteal implants use them.
It's also important to look into the brand and quality of the implant. Look for implants that qualify as safe and effective, and also look for brands that have been in the market for a long time; this is a good indication of their quality and reliability.
The Material The Implant
The most commonly used implant materials are titanium and zirconia. Titanium is strong and durable, while zirconia is a newer biocompatible material and does not require metal.
Cost Of The Implant Procedure
Dental implants can be expensive, so it's essential to clearly understand the costs involved and compare prices from different providers. Check with your insurance company to see if they cover dental implants under your plan.
By taking the time to consider these factors, you can make an informed decision and have a beautiful and functional smile. Talk to our dentist about dental implants and their procedures.
