There are many dentists out there for us to choose from. Some are more experienced than others, and not every dentist provides complete implant care. Dr. Max Lingo of Evansville, Indiana, provides that complete dental care you are looking for. Some of Dr. Lingo’s services include: mini dental implants, final dental restorations, and even full-mouth implant dentures! His mini dental implant treatments actually require little to zero recovery time and can be placed in just one appointment.
Dental implants take away the worry, and offer convenience and reliability of natural teeth. Each implant is made of a titanium root that is inserted into the jaw where the missing tooth previously stood. After placement, new bone forms around the artificial root, and it becomes so secure that it can actually support more weight than a real tooth. Dental implants are most typically used for dentures, missing tooth restoration, multiple tooth dental bridges and full mouth implant dentures.
Dental implants are perfect for those who have lost their natural teeth. If you have a missing tooth due to disease, decay or even an accident, then dental implants are one of the best ways you can replace that tooth. The cost per tooth of dental implants makes it a viable and economical long-term option. Replacing a missing tooth can prevent other teeth from shifting out of place. Dental implants also help retain your natural biting function, self-confidence and avoid other types of problems caused by missing teeth.
What Exactly Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is actually an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw. The implant root, just like a real tooth, is used to support a fixed prosthesis. You can have an implant crown, bridge or even an implant supported denture anchored over the artificial root. Dr. Lingo’s success rate of dental implants is so high, that he guarantees results that last a lifetime.
How long do dental implants last?
Implants, when well cared for, usually last for a lifetime. Keep in mind that implants have the longest lifespan of any other type of tooth replacement treatment. In fact, dental implants last longer than traditional bridges, dentures and partial dentures due to their strength and stability. Having an implant specialist like Dr. Max Lingo handling your treatment will have a tremendous impact on your results.
Dental Implant Crowns, Bridges and Dentures
Once your dental implants are installed, our implantologist, Dr. Lingo, will create new implant teeth to go over your implant root. The type of implant teeth you choose depends on how many teeth are being replaced with implants. You may choose to have a crown over a single implant, or an All-on-4 denture that never comes out of place!
Dental implant procedures can sometimes be very quick to perform. Same day implants may even be covered by your dental insurance. The cost of dental implants depends on the type of implants you receive, as well as the implant denture, partial or crowns that are placed. To be a candidate for dental implants, your dental implantologist will need to see whether or not you have enough healthy bone to support the implant. Dr. Max Lingo has completed many dental implant procedures making him a perfect implant dentist to see to improve your smile.
