Dental Implants Success Rate

Generally, dental implants have recorded a success rate of over 98 percent. In some cases, the percentage may vary depending on where the implants are placed in the jaw. However, the results of dental implants are predictable and long lasting compared to other options for tooth restoration. Remember to choose a good implant dentist for determining your candidacy for the procedure and receiving a reliable tooth replacement solution.

Who can get Dental Implants?

Anyone healthy enough to withstand an oral surgery or a routine dental extraction can get a dental implant. The patient should have healthy gums and bone. Also, the patient must practice good oral hygiene and regularly visit the dentist.

Patients who are heavy smokers, suffer from uncontrolled chronic disorders like heart disease or diabetes, or had radiation therapy for the neck/head area require special consideration. If you want a dental implant, consult with your dentist to check your candidacy.

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants involve replacement of the tooth roots.

The dental implant process starts with the development of an individual treatment plan to addresses your specific dental needs. A team of dental professionals experienced and trained in restorative dentistry and oral surgery prepare the individualized treatment plan. The team suggests best implant options and provides coordinated care accordingly.

Next, the implant (a small post of titanium), is placed within the missing tooth bone socket. Over time, the jawbone heals and grows around the metal post and anchors it securely within the jaw. The jawbone may take 6 to 12 weeks in healing.

Once the jawbone has bonded with the implant, a small connector post (an abutment) is attached to the metal post for securely holding the new tooth. After that, your dentist takes impressions of your teeth to create a model of your bite for making the new tooth or teeth. The model captures the arrangement and shape of your teeth.

The new tooth or teeth are created on the basis of this model. Later, a replacement tooth (a crown) is attached to the abutment. Some patients may have implants to support a removable denture.

Your dentist will match the color of your new teeth to the natural teeth. The replacement teeth appear, feel, and function similar to natural teeth with the implant secured within the jawbone. Many patients will quickly forget that they are using implants, and will use them just like the other healthy teeth.

    It's my first time giving a star rating to a dentist but I did like this one. I've been searching for a dentist and found the cleaning to be painful and some locations as they tend to just rip your gums apart. I'd recommend this office because the ladies here treat you like a family member and the place is immaculate (however one spells immaculalte - english isn't my major). anyway, I travel 4-hours from Maryland to Philadelphia just to see this dentist because he's just that good. I'm not kidding. If there were ten stars, then he'd get all ten...anyway before I ramble on and on, I've got to drive back to Maryland so just drop by and the ladies here will help. p.s. they are not hard on the eyes either.

    Thank you Dr. Spilkia for your caring professional services.In my last visit I spent almost 3 hours as you preformed a root canal and made my new crown. I would never have believed a person could actually nap through a root canal!

    I may be a little biased since Dr Spilkia is a close friend of mine; however he is the best dentist here in Philadelphia, PA I've ever had. I grew up with a phobia of dentists, but when he became a dentist many years ago, my fears quickly subsided thanks to his chair side manner. He has you feeling comfortable from the minute you step in. He is the only dentist I know of who actually phones you the day following major dental work to see how you're doing. Aside from being a great dentist, he really cares.
