      Want to know if you are a candidate?

      Dental Implants are appropriate for almost anyone who is missing teeth or at risk of losing teeth because of cavities, gum disease, accidents, etc.

      In such patients, normal eating and speaking habits are affected and in many cases individuals are completely unable to wear dentures. This loss of function is the primary reason dental implants are recommended. Along with improving an individual’s ability to chew and enjoy food, dental implants can make the patient feel more secure as speech and appearance are often improved as well.

      During the first appointment, specialized diagnostic studies are performed to determine the ideal treatment for each person.

      After careful evaluation of your health history, Dr. Alvarez will alert you to any conditions that may affect your treatment. Remember, age is not a factor.

      More about Dental Implants

      How safe and effective are they?

      You can rely on your new teeth to look, feel and function like natural teeth for years to come. There is no need to cut down healthy teeth and dental implants keep the bones from shrinking after losing your theeth.

      Research and documented scientific studies have proven the effectiveness and long-lasting success (over 30 years) of dental implants. If this treatment is provided by an experienced implantologist, your implants could last a lifetime.

      Dental implants have a survival rate of approximately 99%. The training and experience of your Implantologist also contributes to overall survival rates.

      Cost of treatment

      The cost of implant treatment depends upon the number and type of implants placed and the type of replacement teeth needed. For example, replacement of a single tooth using implants costs about as much as a dental bridge. The bridges necessitate “cutting down” adjacent teeth for crowns. Implant treatment does not. More complex treatment, such as bone grafting, will add to the cost.

      The improvement in your self-confidence, comfort, eating habits and appearance will make dental implant treatment one of the best investments you’ve ever made!

      The number of implants used for a given restoration is most important in terms of the success of the restoration, not the overall fee. It is certainly much more cost-effective when the same dentist both places and restores a patient’s dentition. A survey of 350 patients after completion of their implant treatment revealed that not only was it worth the investment, but that they would happily do it again.

      Guarantee

      Since there are health conditions and habits out of our control, the treatment can’t be guaranteed. However, the implant manufacturer covers the implant for 10 years.

      Treatment phases

      Prosthetic Phase (Teeth)

      Prosthetic Phase (Teeth)

      Once the gums have healed, an implant crown is fabricated and screwed down to the implant.

      First Surgical Phase (Implant Placement)

      First Surgical Phase (Implant Placement)

      Under Local anesthetic Dr. Alvarez places dental implants into the jaw bone with a very precise surgical procedure. The implant remains covered by gum tissue while fusing with the jaw bone.

      Second Surgical Phase (Implants Uncovery)

      Second Surgical Phase (Implants Uncovery)

      After approximately six months of healing. Under local anesthetic, the implants root is exposed and a healing post is placed over the top, so that the gum tissue heals around the post.

      Before & After

      Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

      Number of implants needed?

      Ideally one implant per missing tooth, but it depends on the type of bridge.

      What if I am missing several teeth?

      Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Alvarez could offer you diferent options like fixed, fixed-removable or removable bridges.

      What if I have no teeth?

      According to the quality and volume of your bone you can have different types of teeth:

      • FIXED – Removed periodically by your dentist.
      • REMOVABLE – Easy access for hygiene. The implants under it secure the bridge in place
      • FIXED REMOVABLE – Works like fixed with the easy access for hygiene.

      I like my dentures, but they move?

      Implants can be used as retention for your existing dentures, eliminating mobility and improving your chewing ability.

      When should I start this treatment?

      As soon as you lose a tooth, otherwise the bone starts shrinking.

      What if I have gum disease?

      Gum disease will need to be controlled, before placing the implants, improving your aesthetics and function.

      How long will they work?

      For life, as long as you maintain a healthy mouth, which is why we recommend periodic cleanings.

      Are implants difficult to clean?

      No more difficult than your original teeth.

      Will others know I have dental implants?

      Today’s implant treatment enables you to have your new teeth look, feel and function like your own. Even though others will be unaware you have dental implants, many patients are so pleased they tell everyone they know.
