What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are one of the most effective solutions for people who are missing teeth. By attaching the implant to the same bone that supports your natural teeth you can get similar strength and functionality from your implants as you did with your natural teeth.
Dental implants are made from modern porcelains that have the same density and texture as your natural teeth, and according to people who have implants, it is easy to forget that you even have artificial teeth.
If you are missing just one tooth implants may be the right choice for you. People who are missing multiple teeth might want to consider dentures that are attached to implants.
Dental implants are not a viable solution for people who have lost their teeth to tooth decay, trauma, or periodontitis. However, if implants are a good solution for you, the procedure is comfortable and is compatible with several types of sedation dentistry.
So if you are missing teeth, complete dental implants could be very beneficial. It's also important to consider the costs associated with a long term solution like dental implants.
In this article, we will provide you with more information on our implant services and the average costs of dental implants.
Types of Dental Implants Include:
Endosteal, a commonly used dental implant is inserted into your jaw bone. These implants are typically made from titanium, and they are, in essence, small screws that anchor a dental crown.
Subperiosteal implants are inserted below the gum and above the jawbone. If your jawbone doesn’t have sufficient bone density or if the jawbone is not sufficiently healthy to support the dental implants, you may be eligible for subperiosteal implants.
If you don’t want to undergo a jawbone augmentation procedure, this type of implant may also be the most suitable for you.
Before moving forward with the implant, we will conduct a thorough inspection of your mouth, jaw, teeth, and gums to ensure that there are no potential issues or risk for infection. This will decrease dental implant surgery recovery time also.
The Average Cost of Dental Implants
The prices of dental implants vary, and the cost you have to pay for your procedure depends on your dental care provider, the surgeon and, most significantly, the type of dental implant that you need.
Conventional dental implants that consist of the endosteal or subperiosteal implant, the abutment, and the crown, cost an average of $4,000. This may sound expensive, but if you consider the value implants can add to your life, it may well be worth the cost.
A dental implant procedure also requires extensive advanced treatment planning. For this reason, many general dentists will refer you to a specialist dental care provider to perform the process.
Before the actual procedure, the dentist requires a three-dimensional image of your oral structures. Capturing these images requires a Cone Beam CT scanner.
Furthermore, the implants themselves have to be made from biocompatible titanium that can be in permanent contact with your oral tissues without compromising stability.
The costs of these procedures are also increased by the sedation options that you have available – not only to manage pain but to keep you relaxed throughout the procedure.
There are a few complications that can cause your surgery to become more expensive. Needing a bone graft is one such complication.
What is Bone Grafting?
If the bone that supports the dental implants has deteriorated, bone grafting might be necessary to replace the weakened tissue. If you prefer bone grafting from your bone, it can increase the costs of the procedure significantly.
Adding bone grafting material may also be necessary for ridge expansion if your jaw isn’t wide enough to support dental implants.
Affordable Dental Implants
Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement solutions. It is, however, one of the more pricy procedures also. However, considering the long term effectiveness and quality of life benefits, there is no better solution.
Non-implant prosthetics like dentures and fixed bridges don’t provide the same value as dental implants regarding lifespan, functionality, and comfort, even with extensive care. Because dental implants can last a lifetime, this may be the most cost-effective tooth replacement solution over the long haul.
We go to great lengths to deliver affordable products and services without compromising quality and value.
