The Benefits of Tooth Implants
Thetooth implant cost quite a bit higher than alternatives such as dentures or bridges, but the benefits makes the price well worth it.
The benefits of dental tooth implants include:
- Undistinguishable from natural teeth.
- Dental tooth implants can last over a decade if properly taken care of.
- Tooth implants prevent the overcrowding and misalignment of teeth.
- Protects the mouth from problems that could occur due to the gap.
- No need to remove tooth implants at night or when eating.
- Dental tooth implants are cleaned in the same way as natural teeth.
The only con would be the tooth implant cost, which can be easily managed with financial arrangements.
What is the Procedure Like for Tooth Implants?
There are three steps involved in the procedure of tooth implants.
Surgery Preparation for Dental Tooth Implants: Before the tooth implants are installed, the mouth needs to be examined and analyzed with the use of x-rays and CT scans. We will determine all of the factors involved in this procedure and give you an estimate of the tooth implant cost.
Insertion of Tooth Implants: During this phase of the operation the dental tooth implants are inserted into the jaw bone. As mentioned above, osseointegration will then take place. This can take a few weeks, so a temporary tooth will be provided to you.
Attaching the Crown to the Dental Tooth Implants: An artificial tooth is fitted onto the tooth implants. This step is quick, though it may require possible readjustments. The crown can increase the tooth implant cost by as low as $500.
After the entire procedure is complete, the tooth implant cost will then be paid and you’ll leave with fully-functional tooth implants that feel and look just as real as natural ones.
The Tooth Implant Cost
As with most dental procedures, there are several factors that can affect the tooth implant cost such as the type of teeth that need to be replaced and how many dental tooth implants are needed. After the initial examination, we will be able to give you a good estimate on the tooth implant cost.
The typical tooth implant cost starts from 4000.00 for a single tooth if there are no complications involved. Tooth readjusting, tooth extractions, and bone grafts are all procedures that may be necessary to add to the tooth implant cost depending on the condition of your teeth. If these additional procedures must be done, then the tooth implant cost can increase. We will let you know if these additional procedures are necessary during the initial examination before any tooth implants are inserted.
