What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants, or teeth implants, are permanent replacements for missing teeth. Whether you have lost your teeth due to an injury, illness or aging, dental implants are the leading solution for permanently replacing missing teeth. Not only do dental implants restore your smile, but they also restore function and help prevent future bone loss. The decision to get dental implants can be challenging for some patients. They are more expensive than alternatives like dentures or bridges. However, a dental implant is long lasting and has the added benefit of preserving your jawbone.

Ideal Candidates for Dental Implants

Have you been asking, “Am I a candidate for dental implants?” We can help you find the answer.

Anyone who has all of their adult teeth can qualify for a gentle implant. Generally, the ideal candidate will be someone whose jaw is healthy and who does not have underlying oral health problems. However, in cases where you have suffered substantial jawbone loss, we can perform a bone grafting procedure to prepare your job for a dental implant.

There are very few people who do not qualify for our dental implant. We are able to place these implants even if you have gum disease, underlying medical conditions or currently wear partial or full dentures. Anyone who is looking for a permanent tooth restoration solution can talk to us about dental implants.

Different Types of Dental Implants

There are five types of dental implants that we offer. All of our treatment plans are customized to suit your needs. Dr. Jacobs will discuss the types of dental implants with you during your consultation and help you decide on the right kind for your smile.

Endosteal Dental Implants


Endosteal dental implants are the most common type of dental implants that we offer. These are formed by a titanium screw that is inserted into the jaw. This screw goes on to serve as the replacement root for your missing tooth. After it has time to heal, we will cover the screw with an artificial tooth called a pontic. This is a permanent dental crown that has been color-matched to your smile.

Subperiosteal Dental Implants


Patients who have insufficient bone density for regular implants can explore tooth replacement with subperiosteal dental implants. A metal framework is placed just beneath the gums to support the titanium screw. This means that the replacement tooth is ultimately positioned on top of the jawbone, rather than eventually being fused with it.

Zygomatic Dental Implants


Zygomatic implants are ideal for people with severe bone loss in their upper jaws. These implants are longer than traditional implants, so they can connect to the zygoma (cheekbone).

Placing zygomatic dental implants can be more complex than other types of dental implant surgery. You will work closely with an oral surgeon throughout the process to make sure that your implants are placed with minimal risk.


All-on-4 Dental Implants

If you are missing an entire row of teeth or are toothless, you may want to consider All-on-4 Implants. Four implants are placed to support a prosthesis, which can contain a full arch of teeth on the upper or lower jaw.

For full mouth reconstruction, all-on-4 implants deliver phenomenal results in just one surgical appointment.

Mini Dental Implants


For patients who have reduced bone density or who only need one tooth replaced in a single visit, we can discuss mini dental implants. These are smaller than traditional dental implants, making them easier to place. They also have a reduced recovery period, so they are ideal for many patients who do not have severe tooth loss but who still need to replace a tooth that has fallen out or been extracted.

What Is Dental Implant Surgery?

Dental implant surgery is the process of placing the implant into the jawbone or placing the metal framework that will support the future implant. Some patients also need additional surgery prior to dental implants to make sure that their jawbone can safely support the screw or future structure.

Dental implant surgery takes one to four hours, depending on the number of implants being placed.

When Are Dental Implants Needed?

Any patient who has lost teeth should consider dental implants as a replacement option. When you lose tooth, you also lose jawbone stimulation that maintains your facial structure. Without stimulation for chewing, the jawbone eventually weakens and can collapse. Detail implants are a great way to prevent this from happening, and they help restore confidence by rebuilding your smile.

Dental Implants Benefits

Replacing missing teeth with implants can transform your life. You can feel more confident when you smile and enjoy activities that you may have withdrawn from due to affected self-confidence or physical impairments from lost teeth.

We would love to help you discover the benefits of dental implants, such as:

Eliminate the risk of bone loss

Restore a smile's aesthetics

Improve your oral health

Enhance your self-image

Improve speech

Improve your ability to chew foods

Dental Implants Average Cost

The cost of dental implants varies from one provider to another and on a patient-by-patient basis. Your final cost will be determined by the number of implants required, whether or not you need bone grafting, the type of implants you choose and even what kind of anesthesia you have during your implant surgery.

Dental insurance may cover a portion or all of your dental implants. Be sure to check with your provider before starting treatment to fully understand your coverage and out-of-pocket costs.

Special Deal: We are currently offering implants for $2,800 each with restoration in our office! Contact us at 786-916-6937 today to book a free consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Type of Anesthesia for Dental Implants?

Teeth implants are usually placed with local anesthesia, but some patients may wish to explore IV or oral sedation. Let us know if you have dental anxiety, and we will be happy to discuss your options together.

Healing from implants takes several months, and every patient’s case is unique. The average recovery time for dental implants is six to 12 months. During that time, you will be able to maintain your usual oral hygiene routine. The longest portion of the process is after the implant is placed, as it takes several months for the screw to fuse to the jawbone.

Financing options are available for patients who are unable to pay for their implants directly. Please speak with us if you would like to discuss this further.

For patients with consecutive missing teeth, a dental bridge can be a more cost-effective solution because it is more cost-effective than placing separate implants. However, a bridge lasts for five to seven years, so you will have to factor in replacement as part of this treatment option. It’s also important to know that a dental bridge cannot provide the jawbone stimulation of an implant.

Please reach out to us if you would like to discuss the pros and cons of dental bridges vs. implants with a professional. We can also explore the possibility of using an implant-supported bridge to restore your smile.

With proper care, your implants can last a lifetime. They are highly durable and require no additional treatment beyond routine dental cleanings and daily brushing and flossing.
