Do you have missing teeth that you’d like to replace with dental implants, but you just can’t get over the fear of the procedure? You’re certainly not alone. Dental anxiety or dental fear affects many Americans. In fact, about 85% of adults have some form of dental anxiety. In nearly 10-20% of these people, dental treatments are neglected or avoided altogether due to their fears. While anxiety can keep some patients from even getting a routine dental cleaning, for a lengthier and more complex procedure such as dental implants, fears can be especially high.

Atlanta GA Implant DentistryWhether you are considering dental implants or you just had them placed, it is common for patients to ask about their staining potential compared to natural teeth. Can your implants show discoloration? If so, do they show it quicker or slower than normal teeth? These are questions we routinely answer at the office of Dr. Wayne Suway. Dr. Suway is a dental implants expert who welcomes the opportunity to tell you what you can expect from this revolutionary method in teeth replacement.

A Stain-Resistant Solution

Dental implants have an impressive 98% success rate. While the odds are in your favor as far as avoiding implant favor, it can happen and some patients heal better than others. The key to a successful implant surgery is the healing that takes place afterwards. There are things you can do before getting dental implants to ensure the stage is set for a quick and effective healing.

Your implant must fuse to the jawbone in order to be able to strongly anchor a prosthetic tooth or teeth. This is an integral part of the healing process. However, healthy gums play a key role. Your bone and implant get nutrients through the gums via your bloodstream. Therefore, any reduction or constriction in blood flow can affect how long or well your implants heal.

Atlanta GA Implant DentistryDental implants are one of the most valued long-term investments you can make. After all, your teeth play a key role in your speech, nutrition, health and appearance. However, when it comes to a patient considering dental implants, cost is often one of the first things that come to mind.

In the same way that every smile is unique, the cost of dental implants can be different for each patient. There are several factors that determine your implant dentistry expense, including the following:

While patients should certainly not rush into a decision about how to replace a missing tooth, timing is important. In fact, if you want to get dental implants, time is of the essence. When a tooth is missing, the tooth root is no longer able to stimulate the jawbone like it should. Besides the risk of your adjacent teeth migrating out of place, you will also face the potential of bone loss the longer you wait to replace a tooth.

Once bone has deteriorated, only a bone grafting procedure can build it back up. Dental implants require a certain amount of bone height and density to be placed successfully. If you want to ensure you qualify for implant dentistry and/or avoid costly bone grafting prior to surgery, you need to consider your timeline for treatment.

Marietta GA Dental Implants SpecialistGetting dental implants is nothing like it was a few decades ago. Modern technology and surgical processes have made it to where most dental implant treatments can last for the rest of a person’s life. The artificial tooth roots are that strong.

#1 — Replace as Few or as Many Teeth as Necessary
Implants are capable of supporting far more weight than your natural teeth. We can use as few as four or six implants to support a denture or extended bridge, replacing all of your teeth in that arch with a single prosthesis. Or, you can opt for a single implant to support an individual crown for just one missing tooth.

While there is no doubt that dental implants look, feel and function like real teeth, many patients have questions about whether or not their implants are prone to the same dental issues as natural teeth. Tooth staining is a top curiosity.

Dental implants involve a titanium post under your gum line (your artificial tooth root) as well as a crown or bridge above your gum line (your prosthetic tooth). It is true that the dental implant itself is not vulnerable to decay or disease. However, please remember that the surrounding tissues and bone certainly are. When it comes to staining or other forms of discoloration on your dental implants, the answer is more ambiguous.
