Dental Implants in Christiansburg, Blacksburg and Radford, VA

At Opulent Dental, people often come with the wrong concepts about dental implants. They consider it as an easy, day-to-day dental procedure- that it is not. Dental implant a surgical procedure and a gold standard treatment for tooth replacement.

You may ask why.

Well, first not everyone is a suitable candidate for a dental implant. Secondly, not everyone can afford it because it is way too expensive and not covered by dental insurance.

What is a dental implant?

Dental implant is a fixed prosthesis in which a titanium screw is placed surgically in the jawbone to replace one or more missing teeth. Once the screw and the tissues around it heal properly, an abutment is placed over which a dental crown is seated.

Even though the results are worth it, the procedure is a long-term commitment with ports-surgical discomfort and pain – that can be treated with medications.

Who can get a Dental Implant?

Dental implant replaces the missing tooth in the most natural way and can last a lifetime with proper hygiene maintenance and regular visits to the dental clinic. As appealing as implants sounds, and trust us, it looks even more attractive, not everyone is a suitable candidate for it.

Here is why you cannot ever get an implant, even if you have all the money in this world:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Smoking habits
  • Inadequate bone
  • Medical conditions such as diabetes or blood diseases
  • Old age

At Opulent Dental, we offer a thorough clinical examination to educate you about the tooth replacement options that best suits your health and dental conditions.
