Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Dental Implant, Post and Crown

How can we help you?

At Apollonia Dental, we believe in empowering our patients to understand and take charge of their dental care. We want you to understand the dental care procedures and therapies we perform, and we will always discuss your treatment options with you so that you can make a smart, informed decision. We have found that giving patients the tools to improve their own health results in more involved patients and a better commitment to healthcare routines.

The cost of your treatment may vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. We will discuss with you the cost of your treatment and each of your available payment plan options before you begin treatment, so that you can make the best choice for you, your smile, and your family. Your smile is yours forever, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best dental care whenever you need it. 

Please read through our selection of dental care questions patients often ask about our practice, the services we offer, and dental healthcare in general. If your question is not answered here, we invite you to give us a call or contact us using our convenient online form.

Dental Implant, Post and Crown

Missing teeth are a huge problem.

The roots of your teeth stimulate your jaw to constantly rebuild itself to hold the roots in place. When you lose a tooth, this process stops, and the bone begins to deteriorate and reabsorb. In time, this effect spreads, damaging your remaining teeth and leading to further tooth loss.

As you lose more teeth, you’ll begin to have difficulty eating fresh, healthy foods and your overall health will suffer. Missing teeth are also a factor in developing periodontal disease, a serious condition that has been linked to other systemic diseases including strokes, heart disease, diabetes, and pancreatic cancer. Additionally, concern over your appearance and the stigma related to missing teeth could lead to depression or social anxiety.

One way to stop this chain reaction is to replace your missing teeth with dental implants. The metal implant actually integrates into your jawbone and stimulates the bone to repair itself.

If you are missing teeth, call us today to learn more about dental implants and find out how they can help you.

We are able to place about 95% of all dental impants right here in our office. Call our office for a consultation if you are considering dental implants.

While dentures can replace your missing teeth and improve the aesthetics of your smile, there are some things that they can't do.

Dental implants permanently replace missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function just like the real thing. Dental implants become a permanent part of your mouth. The metal post integrates into your jaw and prevents bone loss, a function not shared by dentures. Additionally, you can care for your implants the same way you would your own teeth, and you'll never have to worry about your food choices or an appliance accidentally slipping at an inconvenient moment.

Call Apollonia Dental today to schedule a consultation to learn more about dental implants.

A full mouth reconstruction can involve several procedures to repair, replace, and improve the appearance of your teeth. Some of the most common procedures we use include:

  • Porcelain crowns
  • Dental implants
  • Partials or dentures
  • Bridges
  • Bonding
  • Composite resin fillings

We are happy to discuss your needs and your goals with you and create a treatment plan to help restore your smile and transform your appearance. Give us a call today to schedule your consultation with Middletown dentist Dr. Aditya Singh.
