A dental implant is an artificial root. At Stoner Periodontic Specialists in Columbus, Ohio, we place the dental implant where the tooth used to be. It is a simple procedure that takes 10-15 minutes and is painless despite the fact that there is a small incision in the gum. You don’t feel the implant because your bone does not have nerves to it. There are nerves that pass through the bones, but not to the bone itself. By far the worst part about dental implant therapy is the removal of the tooth, and that has already occurred. If we can place the implant at the same time that we remove the tooth, you won’t even know that we placed the implant. And that is what we do about 95% of the time.
Cost of Dental Implants
We believe that dental implants are one of the best investments you can make. A dental implant is not like a car. From the day you buy a car, it only loses value. But if a dental implant is placed by the right periodontist, in 40 years it will have the same value as the day you place it. We see that value as an investment in your health. It will improve your health by giving you a tooth that allows you to chew food to the level you need to get nutrients out of it in your intestines. The return on your investment is priceless! With dental implants, the price is what you pay but the value is what you get – improved health.
The Best Dental Implant Results
The easy part of dental implant therapy is placing the implant. The hard part is making that tooth and your smile look beautiful and natural. Periodontists are plastic surgeons of the mouth. Our three extra years of training beyond dental school is limited to oral plastic surgery procedures and dental implant therapy. We understand the manipulation of soft tissues and tissues around the implant. Therefore, we feel we are best equipped to provide the most beautiful and natural feeling result. We want to give you the best smile that you can have!
