Dental Implants in Savannah

Dental Implants Are an Ideal Replacement

Dental implants appear life-like as they come up through the gums, and look and function just like real teeth. They return the ability to chew a variety of foods and give a full and healthy smile. Implants can replace one or many missing teeth. Those with no teeth can benefit, as they can replace dentures that slip and tilt and instead provide stability when chewing or speaking. There is no need to go to another dental office, as we have complete capabilities for this process from post placement to crown fabrication.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Easier eating – eat your favorite foods
  • No slipping – implants are permanently attached
  • Individually placed – no strain on other teeth
  • Look better – implants look and function like real teeth
  • Easier life – no removal or adhesives to deal with
  • Increased confidence and self esteem – get your smile back
  • Laugh, speak, and enjoy life as if they were your real teeth

How Successful are Dental Implants?

Each case varies, but a success rate of up to 98% is impressive. With the right care, your implants can last a lifetime.

Immediate Load Implants – Another Option

In addition to traditional implants, we offer our patients All-on-4™ immediate load implants. They are placed in your mouth and immediately are ready to absorb any pressure from chewing. Previously, there was a waiting time of six months for the adjacent bone to heal. As we can complete the entire procedure in our office in a single visit, there is no need to be referred to an oral surgeon. These will securely hold your dentures in place with only four implants and never need to be removed. They provide support as strong as your natural teeth.

How long do common dental restorations last?

Ideally, dental restorations would last forever. The truth, though, is most restorations simply do not. The average crown or bridge has a lifespan of approximately 5 to 7 years, although excellent care can often push this to a decade or so. Dentures need to be relined once a year and replaced every 10 to 15 years. Dental implants are the only dental restoration currently available that can reasonably be expected to last a lifetime with proper care.

    Are Dental Implants Right for Everyone?

    If you are healthy enough to have a routine dental extraction or oral surgery, you could be considered a good candidate for dental implants. The best way for us to guide you through the various options would be to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Chad Schnabel.

    He will inspect your gums, jaw, the condition of your teeth, and talk to you about your dental history. We’d also like to know about your concerns and expectations related to dental implants.

    Dental Implants are used for:

    • Replacing a single tooth – one implant and a crown is used
    • Replacing several teeth – an implant-support bridge is used
    • Replacing all teeth – an implant-supported full bridge or denture is used

    What Can I Expect After I Have Dental Implants?

    You will continue normal dental hygiene at home and continue regular visits to our office for cleaning and check-ups. Brushing and flossing your implants will feel like your regular teeth.

    We will monitor and keep a check on your teeth, gums, implants and review a ongoing care plan for your unique situation.

    The biggest change you will notice is a new freedom to eat and smile like you used to. You’ll forget you have implants and wonder why you hadn’t considered this option earlier!

    Do You Currently Have Dentures?

    Removable dentures can be inconvenient and embarrassing in certain situations. Dental implants can free you from the maintenance and daily routine of cleaning, adhesives, and eating challenges.

    If you are ready to discuss the alternatives to dentures, let us know. Our goal is to bring back your confident smile and let you get back to living your life.

    Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Dental Implants?

    Dental Implants and dental insurance coverage are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Dr. Schnabel can discuss your current insurance and guide you through your options.
