What are dental implants?

Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that replace the full root and crown of missing, damaged, or decayed teeth. The implant “root” is a screw made of strong titanium that’s surgically implanted under the gums, where it fuses with your jawbone. Attached to the screw is an abutment, which supports a single prosthetic crown or multiple crowns that are made of porcelain or zirconium for durability and a natural-looking appearance.

What are the types of dental implants?

Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full mouth of teeth. One surgically inserted implant can support a single crown.

  • If a few teeth need to be replaced, two implants can support a bridge of prosthetic crowns.
  • For full-mouth or full-arch (upper or lower) replacement, only four root implants are needed to support each arch, in a procedure called All-On-4. Even with minimal surgical implants, full-mouth or full-arch dental implants are still stronger and function better than tooth replacement alternatives.

What happens before, during, and after dental implant surgery?

Request an Appointment

1.The first step in the dental implant process is a thorough exam to plan exactly where the implants will go, and to remove damaged or decayed teeth as needed.

2. The dental implant surgery itself is split into two sessions: the first will involve implanting the titanium screws into the jawbone. Your dentist will attach a temporary abutment and stitch the gums closed over the implant. Stitches will be removed seven to ten days afterward.

3. The next portion of the surgery will have to wait until the first surgery is completely healed and the titanium screws are successfully fused to your jawbone. This can take four to six months. During the second surgical session, the dentist will make a small cut in the gums, remove the temporary abutment, and replace it with a healing cap that supports proper healing of the gum tissue.

4. Once your gums heal (10-14 days later), your dentist will make impressions of your mouth and remaining teeth to create customized prosthetic crowns.

5. While you wait for your permanent crowns, you will be provided with temporary crowns that will look and function like normal teeth. As soon as your permanent crowns are ready, we’ll replace the temporary ones, and you’ll be able enjoy your favorite foods and smile and laugh freely.

  • Avatar Elaine Reichl ★★★★★ 3 months ago
    I am very happy with Dr Hage and his staff. Thank you very much for such good care. My husband had a toothache and they took him in the same day. Very caring.
  • Avatar Erica Champi ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    Went in with a broken tooth and toothache. Staff were very professional and Dr was very kind. He explained to me that my tooth is broken below the gum line and a dental implant is the best option. They accepted my insurance and placed the … More implant the same day. It took only 10 minutes and didn't hurt at all. It didn't hurt after my numbness was gone either, my toothache was gone. I'm very happy that I found them so close to my work. Best part is that they close late and I can stop by for my checkups after work. Kylie is a real doll 🙂

What are the potential risks, complications, and problems with a dental implant?

Dental implants have a high success rate, but a very small percentage of implants do fail. Gum disease, insufficient jawbone, and smoking are three of the main reasons for failure of dental implants. As with any major surgery, dental implant surgery comes with the standard risk of infection.  There is also a risk of sinus problems when implants are improperly placed in the upper jaw, which is why it’s crucial to choose a professional, experienced dental implant expert to perform the surgery.

How much does a dental implant cost in San Diego? Does insurance cover the costs?

Dental implant costs vary depending on the dentist and sometimes regional factors, but in general a single implant costs around $3,000-$4,500, including the surgery and all components.

For full-mouth or full-arch dental implants, the cost can run from $12,000-$25,000.

Even though dental implants are stronger and last longer than other tooth replacement options, dental insurance policies consider them an “elective” procedure and will not usually cover the costs. However, some insurance policies may cover the cost of the prosthetic crown, at a rate comparable to covering regular dental crowns.
