Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the choice method for replacing missing teeth to help restore the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth. Implants also help prevent bone loss from deterioration when your permanent teeth are missing.

You can have implants to replace a single tooth or in an area where multiple teeth are missing with a dental bridge. They can be used to anchor in complete dentures.

Dental implants include a titanium “root” which is fused to your jaw bone. It has a crown at the top that is indistinguishable from a natural tooth, so no one will ever know it’s not your real tooth.

Why Should You Choose Dental Implants for Restoring Your Smile?

Dental implants are the best way to help enhance the appearance of your smile if you are missing teeth. They restore function while fitting comfortably. You can expect dental implants to last many, many years while maintaining a nice appearance and functioning like new.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Dental implants range in price and can vary greatly depending on factors such as the level of expertise of your dentist, your geographic location, and the number of implants you need. Each implant can cost between $3,000 and $4,500.

Whether you have dental insurance and what it covers also affects how much you can expect to pay for dental implants. Talk to your dentist to see how much you will pay out of pocket and ask about financing options.
