What Are Dental Implants?

For long-lasting solutions to a missing tooth or teeth, our full-service practice is excited to offer dental implants to Cranston and Warwick, RI patients. Dental implants are typically made of titanium posts that are placed surgically within your jawbone to simulate the missing tooth root. The post(s) can be used to support a dental crown, bridge, or full-arch denture restoration that replaces the visible portion of natural teeth that have been lost. Replacing missing teeth is very important to your smile and oral health. Dental implants offer a tooth replacement alternative that looks and functions similarly to natural teeth. Cranston Dental Group is a local leader in dental implant solutions. If you've lost a tooth or need tooth extractions, we invite you to schedule a visit with our expert team to learn more about your implant options, including single implants, implant dentures, implant bridges, and All-on-4® dental implants.

Am I a candidate for Implant Dentistry?

Implant dentistry can replace one or more missing teeth through single dental implants, implant bridges, or implant-supported full-arch restorations. You may wish to consider a dental implant if you have a non-restorable tooth that needs to be pulled or are dissatisfied with the appearance or comfort of an existing tooth replacement. Implants work best in an oral environment that is free from gum disease and is supported by adequate levels of bone in the jaw. In some cases, a bone graft or tooth extraction may be necessary to prepare your mouth for implant placement. Dental implants may not be recommended if you use tobacco, are pregnant, or have certain medical concerns. During your consultation for dental implants, our Cranston, RI team can assess the health of your jawbone and gums to determine if implant dentistry is ideal for you.

What Are Single Dental Implants?

Ideal for the front or the back of the mouth, a single tooth implant replaces the root of a missing tooth and supports a natural-looking dental crown. With this procedure, our team surgically positions a titanium implant screw into the jawbone where the tooth has been lost. The implant will fuse with the jawbone over the next several months. A temporary restoration or healing cap may be used to cover the area as it heals. After the implant fully bonds with the bone, an implant-supported crown will be made and attached to the post, completing the tooth replacement procedure. At Cranston Dental Group, we use high-quality Sweden and Martina dental implants and can complete the whole implant procedure in our state-of-the-art facility.

What Are Implant Bridges and Implant Dentures?

When two or more adjacent teeth have been lost, an implant-supported dental bridge may be considered as a tooth replacement option. With an implant bridge, a set of dental implants are positioned in the jaw to support a bridge restoration (or a series of crowns fused into one appliance). Implant-supported dentures provide a full-arch dental implant option by replacing an entire arch of missing upper or lower teeth. Our Cranston implant dentists place a series of implants in specific areas within the jaw. These implants are then used to support a full-arch denture appliance.

What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

Manufactured by Nobel Biocare™, All-on-4 dental implants provide an advanced way to replace a whole arch of missing teeth with the benefit of implant technology. This procedure works by surgically positioning four specially designed implants into strategic locations in the upper or lower jaw. After placing the four implants, our dentists will attach a temporary restoration to the implants to maintain your function and appearance while the implant sites heal. When your implants have solidly fused with the bone, we will remove the temporary teeth and attach a new, custom full-arch appliance. Our skilled team will adjust your replacement teeth as needed to help ensure comfort and maintain a natural-looking appearance for your smile.

Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Based on your dental insurance company and specific coverage, a portion of your implant surgery or implant restoration might be covered. We will talk to your insurance company to check your policy and determine any personal dental implant costs. To help make tooth replacement with implants as affordable as possible, Cranston Dental Group accepts financing through CareCredit®, as well as an array of other convenient payment options.
