▼Will insurance cover my implants?
Dental implants are generally regarded as being medically necessary due to their function of allowing you to eat, as well as supporting the surrounding teeth and facial structure. This makes insurance more inclined to cover such a procedure, but every insurance plan differs. Call your dental insurance company to make sure an implant procedure is covered.
▼How long does it take to get dental implants?
Getting dental implants generally takes five to eight months to complete, though this depends on several factors such as the condition of your oral health. After receiving your implants, you’ll need to wait for your mouth to completely heal before receiving your restoration. Your implant dentists can provide you with a more precise treatment timeline at your consultation.
▼If I have gum disease, can I still get dental implants?
If you suffer from gum disease, you’ll need to eliminate the infection before starting your dental implant treatment. Gum disease interferes with the jawbone’s ability to heal properly around the surgery site, which may interfere with your implant placement.
▼Are there age restrictions on dental implants?
Dental implants are the preferred method for tooth replacement because they can last a lifetime. Unlike other restoration procedures, dental implants increase your bone density, thereby preventing deterioration. You won’t have slippage or difficulty speaking like with traditional dentures, and you’ll quickly become accustomed to your artificial teeth thanks to their natural look and feel.
