It can be frustrating to be suffering from permanent tooth loss, because missing teeth can have a negative impact on your smile and lead to other dental problems in the future. If you are missing teeth, then you need to contact Dr. Peter Hammes to learn more about the benefits of dental implants. There are a number of reasons why our customers are happy with the results when they choose dental implants, and we want to help you understand these benefits.
When a tooth is missing in your mouth, the dentist can install a post into the jaw bone to fill the space in with a fake tooth. This process simulates the way a natural tooth would look and function, helping you to have all of the comforts of having your natural teeth in your mouth.
The dental implants procedure actually takes several months to complete, because it is necessary to give the post time to assimilate into the jawbone. Even though multiple appointments will be needed, you will be glad that you selected this dental treatment because the final results are natural and attractive.
During the first appointment, the implant post will be inserted into your jawbone. Then, you will need to wait for several months to allow the post placement to heal and strengthen. Once it has been determined that the post is strong and holding in place, then you will visit the dentist for another appointment to have the fake tooth placed on top of the implant post.
The cost of your procedure will depend on the services that you need to restore your smile. For example, it might cost more money if several implants are placed and a bridge is used to fill in the gap where multiple teeth are missing.
The only way to estimate the cost of your dental implants procedure is by scheduling a consultation and talking with Dr. Peter Hammes for more information about your individual situation. Our helpful office staff can talk with you about the payment options that are available, and we will help you assess the right dental treatment to improve the quality of your teeth.
