What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are often the best choice for patients with tooth loss, restoring both your tooth root and the gaps in your smile. Dental implants are composed of three main parts: titanium post, abutment, and restoration. They are designed for stability and longevity. Depending on the number of teeth you are missing, you can receive a custom crown, bridge, or denture to restore the function and appearance of your smile.

Do I Qualify For Treatment?

Dental implant treatment may not be successful unless patients meet certain basic requirements. Before scheduling your implant surgery, Dr. Cenk will take you through a detailed consultation to determine if the treatment is right for you. Factors we take into consideration include...

Oral Health

Patients should be in good overall oral health other than their missing teeth. You may require periodontal treatment, tooth extractions, or other preliminary dental work to get your oral health where it needs to be before implant placement.

Lifestyle

We never recommend dental implants to patients who are more likely to experience complications due to medical and lifestyle factors. Smoking, uncontrolled diabetes, and autoimmune disorders can all increase your risk during surgery and lead to poor results. 

Bone Density

Patients need to have sufficient jawbone density to support a dental implant. If you have sustained bone atrophy from longterm tooth loss, we may recommend a preparatory bone graft to improve your candidacy.

Consultation

During your initial consultation at our El Paso, TX, practice, Dr. Cenk will thoroughly examine your teeth and oral anatomy to ensure you are a good candidate. We will then discuss your options and develop a personalized plan treatment plan for success.

Implant Surgery 

We begin the procedure by administering an anesthetic to numb your mouth. Once you are comfortable, our dentist makes incisions in the gums and strategically places the titanium implant posts. Finally, we will stitch the incisions closed and provide you with detailed instructions on your recovery.

Osseointegration

Over the next four to six months the titanium implants will integrate with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. During this time you will be given a temporary restoration, allowing you to eat and speak normally until the healing period is complete.

Abutments

After the posts have successfully osseointegrated with your jaw, we will schedule your second procedure to place abutments. Abutments are small, screw-like components that attach to your implants and secure your future restoration. We will allow a few weeks for your gums to recover after the procedure before moving onto the final steps. 

Restoration

Using detailed impressions of your smile and oral anatomy, our dentist designs a custom implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture. Skilled technicians at our trusted dental lab craft the restoration from premium materials that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Once your gums have healed around the abutment, you will return to our office to have the prosthetics fitted and your treatment is complete.

The Recovery Process

It is crucial to follow our dentist's instructions as closely as possible while you recover from your implant surgery. In the few days following the procedure, you can expect minor swelling, bleeding, and discomfort. Dr. Cenk typically recommends applying ice packs to reduce swelling and a regimen of over-the-counter pain medication to mitigate discomfort. We also suggest eating a soft food diet for the first few days.

You will need to attend a follow-up visit in about one to two weeks so our dentists can assess your healing progress and remove your stitches. Do not hesitate to call or send a message to our El Paso practice if you have any questions or concerns about your recovery.

How Much Do Implants Cost?

The cost of dental implants varies from one patient to the next and is dependent on several factors, mainly the extent of your tooth loss. Since implants are priced individually (usually running from $1,000 to $3,000 per unit), a patient missing one tooth can expect to pay significantly less than a patient missing all of their teeth. The need for additional preparatory work can also add to your final costs.

While this may seem expensive, it is important to remember the significant longterm benefits that come with implants. The restorations themselves typically last longer than traditional crowns, bridges, and dentures, and will need fewer replacements over the course of a lifetime. Furthermore, your implants protect your gums and bone tissue and can save you from needing costly restorative procedures in the future. Most importantly, dental implants are the most comfortable, convenient, and functional of dental restorations, providing priceless improvement to your quality of life and self-confidence.
