Types of Dental Implants
The main factor that influences the price of your dental implant tooth replacement is the cost of your dental implant posts. Each implant is custom crafted from a high quality material and surgically placed into the jawbone, recreating the lost roots of missing teeth. Depending on the number of implants needed, materials used to craft them, and the manufacturer who crafts the implant posts, the price will vary. Additionally, utilizing dental sedation will add to the overall cost of treatment.
What are the Stages of Dental Implant Treatment?
Dental implant supported tooth replacement is usually completed in the following stages of treatment:
- Preparation – we prepare your smile with tooth extraction, tissue grafts, and other preparatory services to ensure successful implantation.
- Implantation – we surgically place one or more dental implant posts to support the replacement tooth or teeth.
- Osseointegration – the implant post fuses with the supportive bone and gum tissue, mimicking tooth roots.
- Restoration – abutments are affixed to the implant posts and the restoration is designed, crafted by the dental lab, and attached in our dental office.
Are Dental Implants Worth the Investment?
Many patients think the cost of dental implant supported tooth replacement is just too high, but when it comes to tooth replacement, there is no better option than an implant retained crown, bridge, partial, or full denture. Some of the many benefits of these tooth replacement options include:
