What are dental implants?
Dental implants are metal tooth root replacements. They are placed into the jawbone during oral surgery. These small, titanium posts are then restored over the abutment with a crown, bridge, or denture—depending on the needs of the patient.
How much do dental implants cost?
Dental implants vary in price, depending on how many are placed, how the dental implant is restored, and any preparations that need to be made beforehand. Additionally, patients with dental insurance that provides benefits for the placement or restoration of dental implants may be able to significantly reduce their out-of-pocket costs. We welcome patients to bring their dental insurance cards with them to their appointment so our front office team can access the benefits that can be provided for care.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants have several advantages. They include:
- Versatility. Implants can be used in several different ways to restore teeth. With a crown, they can replace one individual tooth. They can act as a support for a dental bridge or as an anchor for a full denture.
- Longevity. Dental implants are known to last a lifetime with proper care, making them a smart investment for many patients.
- Appearance. Dental implants provide a foundation for crowns, bridges, or dentures, which are made with high-quality materials to ensure they look as natural as possible.
- Stability. Because dental implants are inserted into the jawbone , they have a strong and stable foundation for proper functionality.
