About Dental Implants in Boulder A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth as a result of injury, periodontal disease, or any other reason. A dental implant consists of a metal post that acts as an artificial root and a dental crown that will replace the missing tooth. Our Implant Dentistry Process Boulder, CO cosmetic dentist Dr. Wasserman will first meet with you to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. Moving forward, he will create a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Wasserman will work with a local periodontist or oral surgeon to surgically place the dental implant (post) into the jaw. It takes about 3 to 6 months for the implant to heal and integrate with the bone. In many cases, Dr. Wasserman will attach a temporary crown or bridge to restore function during this time. Other times, Dr. Wasserman may be able to attach the permanent restoration of either a crown, bridge or denture. Dental Implant FAQs How much do dental implants cost? The cost of implants varies based on the location of the missing teeth, number of implants needed and type of restoration chosen. While dental implants are typically more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits. Dental implants are stronger than natural teeth and generally last 10-20 years. They are also a more favorable approach than bridgework since they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support. How do I know if dental implants are right for me? Dr. Wasserman will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. To receive dental implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the dental implant. You must also be committed to excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits as these are critical to the long-term success of dental implants. Are dental implants covered by insurance? As with most cosmetic dentistry procedures, dental implants are not typically covered by dental insurance. However, Dr. Wasserman will work with nearly all insurance companies and will help you maximize your benefits. We will perform a complimentary benefits check and handle all necessary billing and paperwork. We also offer other payment options like interest free financing for qualified patients.
