WHAT CAN IMPLANTS DO FOR YOU?
About Dental Implants
Dental implants offer our patients an incredibly effective and natural-looking solution in the event of tooth loss. Dental implants are a fantastic option for replacing teeth while protecting the integrity of your jaw bone and adjacent teeth. Implants can also prevent surrounding teeth from tilting and collapsing in the area of tooth loss that many patients are not aware of.
Dental implants are directly inserted into the jaw to act as ‘posts’ for replacement teeth. Over time, the bone attaches to the implant, allowing us to build a replacement tooth. The replacement teeth are made to match your existing teeth to provide a natural appearance. It is more stable than a denture and unlike ‘bridges’, they do not rely on neighbouring teeth.
Oryx Dental offers singular, multiple, or even full-mouth dental implants to give our patients the most options in restorative and cosmetic dentistry depending on their needs.

How long do dental implants last?
Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to dental disease such as decay; however, the health of the gums is vital to maintaining lasting implant success. Conscientious home care by the patient and regular professional cleanings and check-ups are essential elements for dental implant sustainability. Each patient is different and success relies upon diagnosis and planning, medical history, and a variety of other factors.
How much do implants cost and does insurance cover the cost?
In general, the cost of replacing a single tooth with a dental implant is almost the same as replacing it with a regular fixed bridge. Dental implant treatment may qualify for some insurance coverage, but situations vary. The cost will vary by patient needs, bone quantity, and region. Get in touch with our professional team for more information about cost.

What are dental implants?
What is the success rate of dental implants?
It varies from individual to individual and with health and habits. For a healthy individual with good oral hygiene and good health, dental implants are predictably successful with reported success rates above 90 - 95%.
Are dental implants removable like dentures or do they stay in your mouth?
No, dental implants are fixed solidly in the bone and allow teeth to be replaced in a manner that is closest to natural teeth.
How do dental implants help if I have full dentures or partial dentures?
Implants are actually most popularly used in patients who wear full dentures or partial dentures. Dental implants can be used to provide retention and support for fixed or removable denture solutions. Many people find implants an excellent solution to creating superior retention of their denture or replacement of their denture for a fixed/non removable and more aesthetic solution.
