Dentist in Trinity, FL
Dental implants are a safe, durable replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants function and appear like natural teeth. Trinity Dental Arts is committed to ensuring your optimal comfort and quality care. We use the latest techniques to ensure efficient, stress-free treatment.
Dental implants may be paired with replacement crowns for full tooth replacement. They may also be used to anchor dentures. Dr. Xhoana Gjelaj will recommend your teeth replacement plan based on your individual needs and preferences.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are an aesthetic, effective solution for tooth loss. There are many great benefits to choosing dental implants. Dental implants can:

- Provide a long-term tooth replacement solution
There are several factors that Dr. Xhoana Gjelaj will consider before recommending dental implants. Some of these include:
- Adequate bone support to anchor the implant

- Overall health, including any chronic illnesses
In some cases, Dr. Xhoana Gjelaj may recommend advance treatment for your upper or lower jaw. Your individual plan is based on your unique needs and goals for your healthy smile.

Cost and Benefits of Dental Implants
What do dental Implants Cost?
The cost of a dental implant or implants will vary based on which teeth are being restored and how many. For example, front teeth are often more difficult to restore with implants, and special custom parts are needed that are more expensive. Sometimes bone grafting or a sinus lift is needed prior to the implant placement, adding surgical procedures to the treatment.
In Florida, single tooth implant treatment for a molar, including surgery to place the implant and the prosthetic restoration on top of the implant, ranges around $4500-$6,000. This total cost can go up if bone grafting is required or you have an infection in the bone or gum tissue.
If you compare and find fees that are unusually low, it could mean lower quality non-brand implant parts, offshore labs, and inexperienced doctors are involved.
Dr. Gjelaj is highly trained and experienced in all aspects of implant dentistry and performs the entire procedure herself. She is also Double-Board Certified Implantologist (DICOI and DABOI). From your very first consultation to the creation and final placement of your implant crown, everything will be done here in our office. She also performs any needed procedures to ensure a successful implant such as a bone graft or sinus lift. Because you are not sent to another office for surgery, she is fully familiar with your entire oral health condition, and she can pass on cost savings due to her in-office Galileos 3D CT-Scan imaging and in-office CEREC CAD/CAM milling technology. Not only do her patients benefit from the efficiencies of one doctor performing all procedures with the latest technology, but they also benefit from the precision. Best results are ensured.
The cost of implant treatment may seem like a lot until you consider the following:
The benefits of the implant restoration,
The long term potential cost savings of an implant over a removable bridge or denture, and
The various stages and materials involved in the treatment.
Your investment in a dental implant gives you biting strength and stability. It also:
Helps prevent bone loss,
Helps keep teeth from shifting,
Helps keep your bite correctly aligned,
Helps prevent wear on your remaining teeth — and
Helps prevent changes in your facial structure.
THE POTENTIAL COST SAVINGS
Dental implants have an extremely high success rate today – over 98%. They are also surprisingly affordable when compared to the common eventual need to replace your prosthesis if you wear a bridge or partial denture. Because your jaw bone, gum tissue and bite are healthier with an implant, and because an implant eliminates the potential of damaging surrounding teeth when a bridge or partial denture are inserted and removed daily for cleaning, etc., you are maintaining better oral health that can preserve your natural teeth, eliminate more extensive dentistry, and also improve the overall health of your body.
Replacing a missing or injured tooth or teeth with dental implants involves a series of steps:
Diagnostic workup, including imaging,
Implant and other materials selection based on your oral health circumstances,
Bone grafting or sinus lift, if required, to establish sufficient bone, followed by a period of healing,
The placement of the implant in the jawbone, followed by a period of healing, as the bone grows around the implant, anchoring it firmly,
The placement of an abutment to connect the implant to the prosthesis,
Gum healing around the abutment,
Design and manufacture of your custom prosthesis — crown, bridge or denture (in the case of multiple missing teeth),
The placement of the prosthesis on the abutment, and
Any needed adjustment of the prosthesis.
In addition to the doctor’s training, knowledge, skills, and judgment, you will be paying for the time spent on diagnostic workup and the clinical procedures, the implant materials, the prosthesis materials and the lab time fabricating your restoration.
