Dental Implants – Lincoln, NE

Regain Lost Teeth Seamlessly

Having an incomplete smile can negatively influence a person’s life in various ways over time. Not only is their oral health directly affected, but they may also struggle with not being able to chew favorite foods, speak clearly with friends, or smile without embarrassment. At Weber Family Dentistry, we’d like to introduce these patients to a state-of-the-art method for lasting tooth replacement – dental implants.

Dental implants stand apart from more traditional services like dentures and bridges because they actually replace the entire natural tooth, including the root underneath the jawbone. This comprehensive approach is not only much better for a patient’s continuing wellbeing, but the finished result is virtually seamless in look, and feel, and function when compared to the original tooth. If you’d like to learn more about this transformative service or schedule an implant consultation with Dr. Weber, contact us today in Lincoln, NE.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • As stated above, dental implants start by rebuilding the tooth’s natural root, which establishes a sturdy foundation for the new “tooth” underneath the gum line. This helps the jawbone stay strong over the years and improves the patient’s overall oral health.
  • Dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Many patients aren’t even able to tell the difference after some time has passed!
  • Implants have a success rate of over 98%, which means that you can proceed confidently with the treatment process.
  • Because implants fit right in alongside natural teeth, there’s no need for your original dental structure to be excessively altered like with a traditional dental bridge.
  • Dental implants are designed to last for several decades or even the rest of the patient’s life with the help of professional maintenance and diligent oral hygiene at home.

Indications for Dental Implants

Contrary to popular belief, patients with a wide spectrum of tooth loss can successfully regain their full smiles with dental implants, from a single gap to an entire arch. Take a look below to see what situation fits your circumstances best and what types of restorations are available:

Missing a Single Tooth

When replenishing a single tooth, pairing a state-of-the-art implant with an all-porcelain crown is the ideal solution. The crown will sit atop the implant without threatening the health of surrounding natural teeth, and its appearance will blend right in. In fact, it’s very likely that no one will even notice the “tooth” isn’t actually natural.

Missing Multiple Missing Teeth

If there are multiple gaps throughout the mouth that need to be filled, implant-retained crowns can still be successfully used to recreate functional, attractive teeth. If the lost teeth appeared in a row, an implant-retained bridge is also available. We’ll place two dental implants – one on either side of the gap – to serve as anchors that hold the new prosthetic securely in place.

Missing All of Your Teeth

Instead of replacing each individual tooth with its own implant and restoration, an implant-retained denture can work wonders by helping patients recreate an entire arch of lost teeth in a reliable and cost-effective fashion. These prosthetics may be permanently fixed in place over a small number of anchored implants or kept removable in nature, which could be preferable for people who are already used to the convenience of a traditional denture.

We’ll take care of everything!

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

There isn’t a clear-cut answer when it comes to estimating the cost of dental implants, at least not before you’ve undergone a consultation with Dr. Weber. Every patient’s needs are different, and there are several stages to the treatment process that will incur their own prices, such as the implant’s initial surgical placement, the addition of an abutment (connector between the implant and the restoration), and the custom-made restoration itself. After assessing the condition of your oral health and the scope of your reconstructive needs, our team can provide a confident treatment plan that includes financial information.

While dental implants may initially seem like a significant investment, it’s important to remember that they will last for decades and almost certainly pay for themselves as time goes on. While more traditional services may require costly replacement and repair over the years, an implant-retained “smile” stays strong!
