What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are synthetically developed tooth structures that are capable of replacing missing teeth to benefit appearance, function, and health. Rather than just sitting on the gum tissue like many restorative devices, dental implants connect with the jawbone and derive support and stability from your own connective tissue. This makes them more appealing as they last longer, feel more natural, and closely match the capabilities of a natural tooth.
The Implant Process
To ensure that the full process runs smoothly, a patient must follow a certain protocol on their journey to receive dental implants. As part of our process in Lake Station, IN, we consider how an implant might help the patient, as well as what pretreatment requirements might be required in order to ensure a successful outcome. This process is as follows:
Based on the patient and doctor’s consultation, a customized crown is built to match the patient’s preference for color, size, and shape. Once the crown is cemented or screwed into place, the patient will enjoy a strong, healthy, and appealing smile for a lifetime.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer numerous advantages over other restorative options. We believe the top benefit it offers patients is its impact on health. Since the implant consists of a post that embeds into the jawbone, it simulates the advantage of a natural tooth root. In addition to serving as a stable foundation for a tooth, a tooth root serves as a healthy stimulant for the jawbone. By using an artificial implant post, the jawbone is enabled to grow stronger and resist deterioration. Other benefits include:
The Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of a full implant procedure varies based on a multitude of different factors; this may include the type of implant chosen, the number of teeth missing, or your need for preliminary treatment. While it’s not possible for us to provide a true estimate of the expense due to these factors, you may be able to receive more information upon attending a consultation with our doctors.
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Dental implants are truly a marvel of modern dentistry, coming as close as possible to truly replacing a natural tooth. With numerous benefits offered by this procedure, it’s hard to say that there could be anything better; however, implants aren’t the right choice for everyone. Are they right for you?

I am deathly afraid of the dentist. These friendly helpful people, angels really, fixed a tooth I broke. The dentist was extremely patient, which is saying a lot because I am a nightmare patient. I won’t be going anywhere else for a dentist again.
I was really scared but the doctor and his assistant reassured me that I would be fine and I was very happy with the outcome.
Best dentist by far I’ve been to. My hygienist was very informative and polite! I was very nervous about my procedure and she made sure I felt calm and comfortable. She is also so patient with children. My daughter and I are looking forward to our next cleaning!
The dentist was understanding of my fears and the procedure was painless. I highly recommend Secure Dental and happy I found them.
