Dental Implants Replace What Your Smile Is Missing

Get Your Smile Back With Holistic Dental Implants in Sturgis, SD

Gaps in your smile, difficulty chewing food, and other issues associated with missing teeth  are bad enough. But the less noticeable effects are even worse. When you don’t have any teeth to stimulate your jaw, your bone shrinks and deteriorates over time. Fortunately, our zirconia (ceramic) dental implants in Sturgis, SD can restore your smile, save your jaw, and improve your health.

Dental implants function like your natural tooth roots. They should be made of a material that’s compatible with your body and doesn’t have any long-term harmful effects. That’s why our team never uses metal implants. In addition to keeping your bone intact, implants offer other benefits:

  • Teeth that stay firmly in place, with no adhesive needed, and don’t become loose or dislodged over time
  • A long-term, comfortable fit since your implants will naturally fuse to your jawbone
  • The ability to eat all the foods you love, including crunchy apples and corn-on-the-cob
  • A smile without gaps, whether you need to replace one missing tooth or all of your teeth
  • Comfortable replacement teeth that won’t irritate and inflame your gums like loose dentures can

At Synergy Dental Center, we use safe materials to ensure you get the best results. Zirconia implants are a strong and reliable biocompatible option. If you’re interested in knowing more, we recommend that you read the recently released information from the FDA regarding the possible adverse effects of metal implants.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Modern dental implants function as artificial roots for replacement teeth. Implants are anchored directly in your jawbone like the roots of natural teeth are. Your jaw bonds to the implants to keep them securely in place. This provides a stable support system for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implants also stimulate your jawbone, reducing your risk of bone loss, which is common after someone loses teeth.

Are dental implants painful?

The dental implant placement is oral surgery, so you will be completely numbed and sedated, if desired, during the procedure. You may feel some discomfort as you recover, but most patients report being able to chew food the day of their procedure. Many only need over-the-counter pain medication in the days following implant placement.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost for dental implant treatment can vary widely depending on the number of implants you need, their location, and the condition of your mouth. The only way to get a good idea of your cost is to schedule an initial exam and consultation. We’ll also take detailed images to help plan your treatment. Then we can give you an estimate of your cost.
