Replace Missing Teeth For Life

Dental Implants

In today’s modern world, Dr. Ornelas strongly recommends dental implants for patients who have lost one or more natural teeth. This reconstructive service stands above the rest because of its comprehensive structure, unmatched stability, and incredible longevity – the new, finished “tooth” is virtually indistinguishable from the one that came before in every way! If you’d like to explore your options for replacement in greater detail, please contact us today in Crown Point, IN to schedule a consultation.

Why Choose Ornelas Family Dentistry for Dental Implants?

Benefits of Dental Implants

Your natural tooth has two components. There’s the white crown that everyone’s familiar with, and then there’s a tooth root that’s well-hidden inside the jawbone. Traditional tooth replacement services only bother with the crown, replenishing aesthetics; unfortunately, the bone tissue suffers from a lack of stimulation when a root is missing, which can lead to noticeable deterioration and higher risks for infection and additional tooth loss. Dental implants rise to the occasion by faithfully replicating every part of the tooth, starting with the stable root. This greatly improves the patient’s oral health while also creating a brand-new smile addition that is virtually indistinguishable from the original tooth.

Additional benefits of implants include:

Indications for Dental Implants

Have you lost one natural tooth? Are you struggling with several gaps throughout your smile? Dental implants can be successful for patients with a wide spectrum of reconstructive needs, and Dr. Ornelas will be sure to pair the ideal, custom-made restoration with your specific situation and preferences.

Missing One Tooth

An implant-retained, all-ceramic dental crown is the perfect fit for individual dental implants. Its placement will fit right in alongside natural teeth and won’t require any damaging alterations like a traditional bridge would.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Implant-retained dental bridges can replenish multiple teeth in a row. Instead of relying on the support of dental crowns, two implants will be inserted into the jaw on either side of the affected gap to serve as “anchors,” securing the new teeth safely and sturdily in place.

Missing All of Your Teeth

Implant-retained dentures can be effectively used to replace several teeth at once. Several options are available, including removable “overdentures,” hybrid dentures that are fixed permanently, and All-On-4, where a new, full arch is anchored with just four strategic implants.

How Dental Implants Work

Dental implant supported tooth replacement is a multi-phase process that can take months or even years from start to finish, but the end result is a repaired smile that will last for decades. Every person’s tooth replacement plan will be unique, but most implant tooth replacement processes include the following steps:

At Ornelas Family Dentistry, we strongly believe in providing our patients with the highest quality care possible. That’s why Dr. Ornelas often partners with periodontists, oral surgeons, and other specialists in the Crown Point community – they handle the surgical insertion of the implant(s) into the jawbone, and he facilitates the design and creation of a brand-new, highly customized dental restoration that will fit over the top. By combining these clinical strengths, the end-result is an outstanding, replenished smile that will last for many, many years to come.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Determining the cost of dental implants is a more complicated question than most patients first realize. There are several components to this transformative procedure, including:

Interested in dental implants? Dr. Ornelas would like to welcome you in for an in-depth consultation at his Crown Point practice. After assessing your smile’s unique needs and current level of oral health, our team can provide confident price estimates for the overall procedure. We do ask patients to keep in mind that while dental implants may initially seem like a significant investment, they’re designed to last for decades with very minimal maintenance in most cases. This means that their overall cost is often less than traditional dentures and bridges in the long-run, which are much more likely to require expensive replacements and repairs.
