Dental Implants in Langford

For Long Lasting Oral Health

A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth and root which is anchored into the jaw bone as an alternative to other tooth replacement methods such as bridges, crowns or dentures. Implants are comprised of an artificial root system, made of titanium and titanium alloys, an abutment (to join the tooth and artificial root), and a porcelain tooth.

Prosthetics are a long-term solution for tooth replacement. Whether you are missing one tooth, several, or all, you could be a candidate for dental implants.

In order to be a candidate for dental implants, patients must have a fully developed jaw with sufficient bone. If you show signs of tooth grinding, your dentist may not recommend dental implants as the forces of the grinding could place excessive pressure on the implant, increasing the likelihood of the implant being unsuccessful in binding to bone tissue.

Understanding Implant Costs and Benefits

The cost of implants varies due to circumstantial factors. Considerations include how many teeth need replacement, how much material is required (including number of titanium posts and type of implant) and the amount of insurance coverage available to you. Implants used in combination with removable dentures or bridges may reduce the cost because fewer implants may be needed to secure the other prosthetic material.

Other factors, such as how well a patient is able to manage medical issues like diabetes, or the presence of infection, can increase costs as bone grafts or other procedures may be required in order to prepare the bone and gum tissue for implants. For example, periodontal disease that has moved into the bones of the jaw will require treatment such as root planing and possible bone grafting before implants can be safely considered.

Single implant pricing ranges from $1000-$3000 per tooth, with full restorations of the oral cavity ranging from $25000 to $96000. This number may come as a surprise, but implants aren’t just for looks, they have long term health benefits as well. For more information on costs for dental implants, please contact us to book a consultation with one of our dentists.

Kinds of Dental Implants

Implants can be installed to replace a single tooth, many teeth, or to anchor a bridge or dentures on either side. Depending on the circumstances, your dentist may suggest a mini implant rather than a full-sized traditional implant.

Mini implants are half the width of traditional implants, and their implant rod is roughly the width of a toothpick. This is ideal for replacing smaller teeth when space cannot accommodate a full-sized prosthetic tooth.

Bone Resorption and Dental Implants

In order to fully appreciate the impact of implants on the structure of your oral cavity, we must first understand the function of your tooth’s root system.

Our bones are continuously acted upon by forces when chewing. The pressure exerted on our teeth while chewing is reflected in the ligaments around our teeth and the roots that stabilize them. When bone is acted upon by the tooth root, it sends a message to the bones. This message instructs the bones of the jaw in that area to continuously remineralize, supporting the tooth as minerals are naturally lost with regular use. When the root of a tooth is removed, this action/reaction relationship is no longer available to the jaw bone, and the bone begins to resorb (reabsorb) into the body.

The implication of bone resorption is significant, accounting for about 25% of bone tissue being resorbed in the first year after tooth extraction or loss. The challenge with bridges and dentures is that while they retain the shape of the teeth, they do not maintain the integrity of the boney structure that supports your teeth. The result can be significant changes in the way that your facial structure appears. In fact, dentures only exert about 10% of the force required to maintain the jaw’s structural integrity.

Bone resorption can significantly impact the integrity of the sinus cavities as well. When teeth with larger root systems are removed, like the pre-molars and molars, the bone that separates the sinus cavity from the root system can resorb, requiring what is called a sinus lift in order to maintain the proper division.

How Dental Implants Prevent Bone Resorption

Dental implants are intentionally made of titanium because of a desired bonding interaction that occurs between the jaw bone and the titanium implant. This is called osseointegration and refers to the way that bone bonds with the titanium implant to further its stability. This means that not only are your teeth sturdy and well supported, they are also preventing resorption every time you bite down. In fact, dental implants are so effective at maintaining bone structure that one implant can exert as much as 99% of the required force on the jaw required to maintain bone. One implant can effectively support up to 3 or 4 teeth in a bridge, and when dentures are secured to 2 implants, between 70 and 80% of bite force is maintained.
