1. Are there any negative effects of dental implants?
Negative effects of an implant could be infection at the area of implant, injury/damage to the surrounding teeth or blood vessels, damage of nerves which could lead to pain, sensitivity, numbness in the natural teeth, gums, lips or chin or even sinus problems which could occur when the implants that are placed in the upper jaw protrude into the sinus cavities
2. Can existing dentures be used for implants?
Yes. Dental implants can support either permanent prosthetic teeth or even the removable denture. You can also modify your existing denture to fit on the dental implants if you wish to.
3. What would be the cost of a single tooth dental implant?
Many other teeth replacement options are available which might seem to be cheaper, but over a period of time, you would be required to keep paying for its maintenance and other needs, which might turn out to be expensive in contrast to a dental implant.
4. Are dental implants covered by insurance?
The crown which is fixed to the abutment of a dental implant could be covered under a few dental plans. There are a few medical insurance plans which are beginning to cover certain aspects of dental implants, particularly in case there are any medical complications due to tooth loss.
