However, individual plans even under one dental insurance carrier can vary greatly in terms of specific procedures covered, allowances for procedures, and maximum annual allowances including implant therapy. You should always contact your insurance carrier to become informed of what coverage you have. Your dental healthcare provider will also assist you in determining the potential insurance contribution to your care.
Are same-day implants safe?
Yes, same-day dental implants are a low-risk procedure when performed by a qualified periodontist or oral surgeon. While there are always risks involved in any surgical procedure including infection, bleeding, and damage to surrounding structures, dental implant surgery has a track record of safety and success.
How long do All-on-4 implants last?
The dental implants themselves (the posts that are surgically implanted into the jawbone) have a success rate of over 95% to last 20 or more years. The prosthesis that is attached to the implants are subject to wear depending on the material used and may need to be replaced or adjusted after 7 years.Critical factors for the longevity of your teeth replacement is your own home care where proper oral hygiene is applied and the need to have regular dental visits to aid you in maintaining the dental prosthesis.
How painful are All-on-4 dental implants?
Local anesthetic is used to numb your gums and soft tissue during your dental implant surgery, so you will typically experience minimal discomfort with your All-on-4 procedure. These procedures are typically performed with light or moderate sedation to reduce any anxiety and discomfort. As the anesthetic wears off, you are likely to experience some discomfort and swelling. This is typically relieved with Ibuprofen or equivalent medication and, if needed, mild narcotic medication.
Do Teeth in a Day look real?
Yes, Teeth in a Day look just like natural teeth. You will work with your restorative specialist to develop the look you wish to achieve esthetically while he maximizes the functional result.
Do Teeth in a Day implants feel natural?
Teeth in a Day implants feel more natural than traditional dentures because they are anchored in place by dental implants, giving them more stability and greater biting force to eat the foods you love. That said, they don’t feel exactly like your natural teeth because they don’t have nerves that provide sensation like your teeth do.
