Most people considering restoring lost teeth understand that dental implants are the premium option for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are the closest option to natural teeth, providing a wide range of benefits, from improved function and appearance to stimulating bone growth for preserving the facial structure. However, many people still have many questions about dental implants. Here are some of the frequently asked questions our patients ask us at Ora Dental Implant Studio.
Q: Is getting a dental implant painful?
A: At Ora Dental Implant Studio, we utilize sedation dentistry when completing dental implant surgery, so no pain is felt during the procedure. We use specialized techniques to reduce discomfort for our patients during and after their surgery. Most of our patients are happily surprised at how little discomfort they experience after their dental implant procedure.
Q: How much will dental implants cost?
A: The cost of dental implants varies depending on what procedure you are receiving. A single dental implant will be much less than a complete arch replacement, but a full arch replacement can be less expensive per tooth than a single dental implant. At Ora Dental Implant Studio, we provide a transparent, all-inclusive price with no hidden fees. At the time of this article, dental implants start at $1899 per tooth for single implants.
Q: I have very bad teeth. Am I still a candidate for dental implants?
Many people who lose one or more teeth have extensive dental problems, but that does not mean they are not good candidates for dental implants. Bone density is the primary concern, but even those with bone loss in the jaw can qualify for dental implants with bone grafting or other procedures. Candidates for dental implants should be in good health and non-smokers.
Q: How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants can last the rest of your life if they are properly maintained. Like natural teeth, you will need to maintain your dental implants with daily oral hygiene and routine dental visits for checkups and cleanings.
Q: Do dental implants look and feel natural?
The reason dental implants are considered the gold standard of tooth restoration is their natural look and function. Our team at Ora Dental Implant Studio will ensure that your new teeth look natural, whether you are getting one implant or a complete mouth restoration. Dental implants also provide the best functionality of any dental restoration option since they are anchored to the jawbone like natural teeth.
Q: Is there financing available for dental implants?
There are many affordable options to finance your new dental implants. At Ora Dental Implant Studio, we offer several options to finance your new teeth, with payments as low as less than $99 a month. We accept CareCredit and have other financing options available through our dental implant center in Elk Grove, CA.
