Are you wondering if dental implants are the right decision? If you are missing teeth and want a complete, natural-looking smile that’s also hassle-free then they could be perfect for you! Compared to other tooth-replacement options like bridges or dentures, dental implants look and function most closely to real teeth. They’re secured in place, make eating and speaking feel natural again, and can even be cleaned the same way as your other teeth. At Bobcat Dental, we can help you get back confidence in your smile thanks to dental implants!

How Do Dental Implants Work?
You can think of a dental implant like a replacement tooth root. The implant is a small, cylindrical post. It is surgically placed into the jawbone where your tooth is missing. Over time, the implant will actually fuse with your bone; this process is called osseointegration. We let the implant heal over the course of a few weeks or sometimes months so that it can become a strong foundation.
Once the implant has properly fused with your bone, a connector piece called an abutment will be placed on top. Then, a restoration will be attached to that, giving the dental implant its final appearance as a natural tooth. This restoration is oftentimes a dental crown, but it can also be a bridge or dentures if multiple teeth are missing.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
There are quite a few factors that affect how much a dental implant costs. To come up with an estimate, we’d need to see how many teeth you are replacing, where these teeth are positioned, and whether your insurance covers any portion (if you are using insurance).
At Bobcat Dental, we want it to be easy to fit dental implants in your budget because we know how life-changing they can be. We accept most PPO insurance plans, and we have a Community Savers Plan, which you can join to get a 15% discount on services.
