What are dental implants?dental-implant

Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth (View Example). They are inserted into your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure that takes place in the dental office. After the implant has been placed in your jawbone, a completely lifelike porcelain tooth crown is attached. In some cases, the implant needs to fuse with the bone for several months before it is permanently crowned; in other cases, you can have new (but temporary) teeth the same day your implants are placed.

 

How many teeth can be replaced with dental implants?

You can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or all your teeth with implants (View Examples). You don’t even need one implant for every missing tooth. As few as two Implants can support a removable lower denture, while as few as four implants can provide a full, permanent set of top or bottom teeth.

 

Is dental implant surgery painful?

Most people find dental implant surgery very easy to tolerate. Any post-operative discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen or OTC pain-relievers. Ice can also be helpful.

 

Are dental implants expensive?

At the outset, implants are more expensive than other tooth-replacement methods such as dentures or bridgework. But they also last many years longer and in fact should never need replacement. So they offer the best, most cost-effective option when viewed as a long-term investment in your health, comfort and well-being.

 

How do you care for dental implants?

They require exactly the same care as natural teeth: daily brushing and flossing, along with regular dental checkups and professional cleanings. Although implant teeth will never decay, the gum tissues around them can become inflamed or infected in the absence of good oral hygiene. Properly cared-for dental implants should last a lifetime.

 

Can my body reject a dental implant?

Strictly speaking, implants can’t be rejected because they contain no living cells or genetically coded material. The titanium of which they are made is completely biocompatible, and allergies are extremely rare. But an implant can fail to integrate with the jawbone if an infection develops in the absence of good oral hygiene, or if it is subjected to biting forces too soon. However, this is rare; implants regularly achieve success rates in excess of 95%.

 

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

There’s a good chance that you are, but this can only be determined after a complete oral examination that includes x-rays of your jaws. Please schedule a consultation to begin the exciting process of restoring your smile and bite.

I recently had my first appointment, and could not have been happier with the service, especially with my dental history. I had jaw surgery on my upper and lower jaw two years ago and am typically in pain after dental appointments. Victoria and Dr. Rider were both wonderful, making sure I was comfortable through the appointment. I knew within 5 minutes it was different than any other dentist I’d been to. I highly recommend this practice!read more

Dr. Rider has always exceeded my expectations from a Dentist. He has been extremely gentle in all my visits. I recently had to replace two crowns and he was especially sensitive to my low pain tolerance and did and excellent job. His staff is wonderful and I would recommend Dr. Rider to anyone or any family who is in need of a "Great" dentist.read more

Dr. Rider has a remarkable ability to make his patients feel comfortable, informed, and appreciated. As a person who has spent my entire life battling anxiety about dental appointments, I was amazed to leave my first appointment with Dr. Rider feeling relaxed, well-cared for and shockingly ready to return.Dr. Rider made sure I knew details about what he was going to do and he supported his staff in keeping me informed.I never thought I'd have positive things to say about a dental visit, but Dr. Rider changed my mind. He has a natural ability to connect with people and clearly values kindness and service to his clients.read more

Dr. Rider has exceeded all expectations providing dental care for my entire family over the past few years. From a fun and educational approach for our young children, to his extremely detailed consultative approach for adults, we will continue to use Dr. Rider for the long-term. As a side note, the numbing shot I received on my last visit was the least painful I've ever had!read more

I have been a patient at Noblesville Dental Associates for several years and can give the practice the highest recommendation. I have had two crowns implanted by Doctor Rider and his able assistant Tiffany. They made sure I was comfortable, did great work and most of all I felt no pain. Vicki at the front desk is very pleasant to work with and my regular hygienist Victoria is the best!read more

This dentistry practice is the best! I have been with this office since I was a child. Noblesville Dental Asscociates bought the practice once Dr. Fink passed. However, I’ve been more than impressed ever since. The staff treats the patient like a “friend” and not another individual in the chair. They genuinely care about you. I don’t like dental work at all. However, I always leave laughing, with a smile on my face. Hands down - best in the area!read more

I’ve been a patient here for many years, but when my original dentist retired, I wondered how the practice would be with the new dentists. I have been very pleasantly surprised at how the experience has been with the new group. They take excellent care of my teeth and go the extra mile for me.read more

After not having been to a dentist since I was 18 (32 now) I ended up getting a type of infection through what at first I thought was a little cavity in a molar. On the surface it was small but was heading towards my root beyond the enamel. I left with with about %70 of that molar and a smile on my face. Kurt and his beautiful assistant were great and very attentive to my needs during the procedure. With professional accuracy and speed it was out with the old and in with a filling before I knew it. I feel I have found a dentist new to Noblesville that I can trust. I told him before the operation that "im sorry, but after this I'm going to hate you" but afterwards I felt the complete opposite and I'm looking forward to going back! I'll never fear the black chair again! Thanks for everything!read more
