Are Dental Implants in Chesapeake Available and What Are They?
Implants are used to permanently replace missing teeth whether they’ve been lost due to trauma or deterioration or any other cause. The implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and function in the same manner as a natural tooth. The implant is a threaded, surgical steel post, called an endosteal implant, that is implanted into the jawbone and can be used for a single implant, mini implants, or several implants. If there’s not enough jawbone to support an implant, your dentist may use a subperiosteal implant. A subperiosteal implant is installed between the gum and the jawbone and is used only when there’s insufficient bone for a bone graft. When the gum has healed from the surgery, the artificial tooth will be placed onto it. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call our office in Chesapeake and we’ll gladly answer any questions you may have.
Are Dental Implants Cost Effective?
We realize that cost is very important to our patients and we strive to keep our dental implants cost at a price that makes them affordable.

The cost of dental implants in Chesapeake will vary according to the individual and will be affected by several factors including the age of the patient, the amount of work that’s needed, the type of materials selected, and insurance coverage.

What’s the Dental Implants Procedure?
Although the dental implants procedure steps will vary somewhat because of the individual’s unique needs, the general procedure will be the same. First, your jaw will be prepared for surgery and then an implant, usually an endosteal post, will be installed. When the jaw has fully healed, which usually takes less than 6 months, and the implant has fused to the bone, you’ll receive a custom-made crown to connect to the implant. Pain during a dental implant procedure is usually minor, particularly when compared to some other dental procedures. If necessary, you may receive a local anesthesia and OTC pain medications for the first day following the procedure.
What Are the Advantages of Implants?
Implants have become very popular because there are so many advantages to them when compared to other procedures available. Some of the implants benefits include:
- They are easier to maintain
- They have a more natural appearance
- They enable better oral hygiene than dentures and bridges
- Implants improve self-confidence
- They protect surrounding teeth, and improve jaw strength and stability
Do Implants Need Special Care?
All of your teeth and your gums require good oral hygiene practices in order to remain free from decay or other dental problems. However, implants don’t require special maintenance and should be cared for the same as your natural teeth with regular dental exams, regular brushing and flossing, and rinsing with a good antibacterial mouthwash.

How Long Does a Dental Implant Last?

The location of the implant is also important in determining how long your implants will last. Usually, implants last for decades or a lifetime.
