Dental Implants—Lincoln, NE
The Premier Solution for Missing Teeth
A full smile is essential for self-confidence as well as overall health and wellbeing. If you need to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth, then our Lincoln dental office has a terrific solution for you. Dental implants can help you restore what you've lost and provide results that both look and feel natural. They offer the next best thing to real teeth, and at Pioneer Greens Dentistry, you’ll be treated by a team with decades of experience rebuilding smiles.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
What separates dental implants from their traditional counterparts? The answer to that is simple. Besides replacing your missing tooth (or teeth), implants also replace your missing roots. This will provide your restoration with vital support and added strength and stability.
Plus, these new roots can stop and even reverse one of the most common side-effects of tooth loss: bone loss. Placed within the jawbone, implants actually stimulate it and encourage the growth of new, healthy bone. This not only helps maintain the strength of the bite, but the overall shape and appearance of the face as well.
Implants are normally topped with 100% porcelain restorations, which gives them an extremely lifelike appearance. The only way someone will know that you have a dental implant is if you tell them!
Implants are also extremely reliable, having a 98% success rate, and they can easily last for 30 years or more with the proper care.
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
This service is versatile enough to be used by patients who need to replace just a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full row of teeth. Our team can help you choose which of the following restorative options would work best for you:
Missing a Single Tooth
To fill in a lone gap in the smile, an implant root can be topped with a custom-made crown that directly attaches to it using a connector called an abutment. This new tooth won’t require support from the adjacent teeth to stay in place, making it a seamless addition to the smile.
Multiple Missing Teeth
Instead of replacing consecutive missing teeth with individual implants, two implants can be positioned on either side of the gap and be used to support additional prosthetic teeth, forming a strong and reliable bridge.
Missing All Teeth
We can design a full or partial denture that fits on top of multiple implants, anchoring it directly to the jawbone, giving it a stability and fit a traditional removable prosthetic simply can’t match.
Full-Service Implant Dentistry
Treatment with dental implants is normally completed in two phases. In the first phase, one or more metal implants will be surgically placed into your jaw. Most practices must refer their patients to an outside oral surgeon for this phase, but at Pioneer Greens Dentistry, our team has the special training to perform the entire procedure in-house, meaning you can get everything you need in one convenient location.
Afterwards, we'll give your mouth time to heal, and when this process is complete, you'll return to our Lincoln office for the second phase of care, which will culminate in the attachment of your new restoration(s).
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Because implants are able to help patients dealing with varying degrees of tooth loss, the final cost of the procedure can be quite different from person to person. Factors such as how many teeth a patient wants to be replaced, where they are located in the mouth, and whether or not someone requires any preparatory procedures (such as a bone graft or tooth extraction) can all influence the overall price.
Despite this, implants are typically the most cost-effective replacement option thanks to their longevity. Traditional bridges and dentures typically need to be completely redone every 7-10 years, compounding their cost, while implants can easily last for 30 years or more. Over the course of a person’s life, implants can easily save someone thousands in periodic maintenance and retreatments.
