Why Choose Warnick & Semder Dentistry for Dental Implants?

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants not only improve the overall look of your smile, but they also give your oral health the boost it needs to avoid many of the most common problems associated with tooth loss. Because of the titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone, this area of your mouth remains stimulated, which is necessary to prevent a shift in your healthy teeth as well as facial collapse or “sagging.”

They also make it possible to eat, chew, and speak with greater ease because of the improved functionality and bite force you will regain. You can enjoy all the foods you love without worry about your restorations slipping or accidentally falling out.

It’s also worth noting that dental implants are designed to last decades if not a lifetime. With proper care and maintenance, you can embrace a smile that will give you the aesthetics and confidence you need when surrounded by family, friends, and colleagues.

Indications for Dental Implants

Since dental implants are a highly versatile method of tooth replacement, you can replace one, multiple, or all your teeth at our dental office near Teays Valley.

Missing Single Tooth

Using only one titanium implant, metal abutment, and a custom-made dental crown, we can replace your lone tooth without altering nearby, healthy teeth like we would if you were receiving a traditional fixed bridge.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Using an implant-retained bridge, we can replace multiple consecutive teeth in a row. Your healthy teeth will remain untouched. Instead, we will insert two implants into the outer sockets before securing a bridge comprised of fused dental crowns. This will give you a more stable restoration that fits perfectly like a puzzle piece.

Missing All Teeth

Instead of relying on traditional dentures to restore your smile, we can use between four and six dental implants to create a solid foundation for your custom-made implant-retained denture. Securing it to the top of your implants, you will enjoy a more stable, functional, and longer-lasting restoration that requires no messy adhesive to hold it in place.

Start-to-Finish Implant Placement

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The only way we can provide you with a clear cost estimate for your dental implant placement is to begin with an initial consultation. It is during this visit we will examine your oral cavity and facial structures to determine how many implants you will need as well as if you require any pre-implant dental work (i.e. periodontal therapy, bone grafting, tooth extraction). Once we consider all the factors, our team can formulate a proper estimate and go over all available payment options.

While it is true that dental implants are more expensive than traditional tooth replacement solutions (i.e. fixed bridge, full or partial dentures), they are actually more cost-effective when you consider how many times you’ll need to replace your traditional restorations.
