If you’ve had poor dental hygiene throughout your life, you might need to invest in dental implants at some point. This is a procedure that can replace your missing teeth. Here is what you can expect when you talk to your dentist about a dental implant procedure.
These procedures take time and money. You’ll talk with your dentist about what teeth need to be replaced and discuss the costs associated when you sit down for a consultation.
Depending on your insurance, you may or may not have to pay thousands out of pocket. This is something serious to consider before you go through with a procedure.
When you decide to get dental implants, you’ll have molds taken of your teeth and a false tooth will be created to fit in the hole. In some cases, the implant is attached to the gum. Sometimes the implant is attached to the root of the old tooth. There will be some recovery time after the procedure, as it is technically a surgery.
Ask your dentist what they think about your potential implant. They’ll have some great advice. Then you can make an informed decision about your potential implant and new tooth.
