The sterile piece is inserted into an exact location, and a smooth cover, or healing cap, protects the implant during the healing period.
In some cases, a temporary or permanent crown may be inserted at the time of surgery.
Implants can’t withstand normal bite forces until the bone has integrated fully into the implant body. Drs. Andrew and Joya Lyons will help you decide what will work best during the initial healing period, ensuring you’re able to function while still protecting your implants. This period usually lasts 3-6 months as the bone grows around the implant. Most patients experience minimal discomfort after placement, especially compared to an extraction.
A well thought out treatment plan that includes implants creates the opportunity for different restoration options.
After the healing period, crowns or bridges are custom-made and attached to the implants with small screws or dental cement.
Even with all the benefits, the cost of dental implants are an important consideration. When your case brings together the latest imaging, advanced training, and modern materials, this service offers one of the best values in health care. Compared to the replacement of other parts the body, most dental implant procedures can be done at a small fraction of those costs. Most patients carry on with normal activities right away and usually enjoy a lifetime of normal chewing, bite stability, and appearance. We know the cost of dental implants is an important part of creating a complete plan that works for you.
The cost of dental implant services involves several critical factors unique to each patient. A fee quoted without careful evaluation and treatment planning may not only be incomplete, but doesn’t consider what’s best for your mouth as an individual. Drs. Andrew and Joya Lyons customize your treatment plan after careful evaluation your current oral conditions, needs, wants, and budget.
