The Implant Process
Dental implants are so successful because they’re designed to replicate the root of your tooth, not just the crown. While the root stays hidden under the gumline, it’s actually doing the important job of stimulating your jawbone and stabilizing teeth. Without it, patients experience deterioration that leads to additional tooth loss and a hunched facial appearance. Implants are the only solution to tooth loss today that rebuilds the entire structure, preventing this problem.
The first step of your implant process is the placement of the implants themselves into the jawbone. Dr. Julovich works with a specialist in the area to provide this service ensuring that you’re taken care of every step of the way. Once you’ve healed from this procedure, you return to our Zionsville practice where we design and place custom restorations completing your new and improved smile.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Most patients receive dental implants, although additional dental care or surgical procedures are required before successful placement. To be an ideal candidate, patients fit the following categories:
- Generally good oral health
- Enough jawbone material to support placed implants
- A commitment to taking care of your oral health with diligent brushing, flossing, and professional check-up
Dr. Julovich reviews any concerns he has before treatment begins. Our goal is to form a personalized plan of action that results in the best chances of success.
How Much Do They Cost?
Every procedure is different, and the number of appointments and services required affects the overall cost. In general, dental implants are a big financial commitment, but one with numerous benefits and life-changing results you’ll be enjoying for years to come. Before you make your decision, the team at Trinity Dental discusses the entire process, estimated cost, and whether or not dental or medical insurance covers any of it. We want you to go into your dental implant procedure feeling well-informed and confident.
Dental Restoration Options
In cases of single implants, Dr. Julovich uses a dental crown to recreate the tooth’s natural look and strength without bothering surrounding teeth in the process. However, this option quickly becomes too expensive if there are several teeth to restore. Alternatively, an implant-retained prosthetic provides full coverage by attaching to several implants at once. These are fixed or removable, depending on which the patient prefers.
