Dublin dental practice describes the cost of implants treatment
At StarBrite Dental in Dublin, CA, our dental patients can learn about a wide range of treatment options, including those that can help restore the function and appearance of their smile when a tooth has been lost or extracted. The best treatment for each patient varies, and we work closely with patients to determine which solution is best for their lifestyle and budget. Dental implants are one of the most commonly requested treatments for missing teeth.
What are dental implants?
Patients missing one or more teeth often have several different tooth replacement options to choose from. One of the most popular is the dental implant. Our dentist at StarBrite Dental describes a dental implant as a small titanium apparatus that creates the foundation for several different types of dental restorations. The implant looks like a small post, which Dr. Munira Lokhandwala places into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery. Once the implant is held in place after healing and fusing with the bone, it becomes a reliable and stable foundation for the false tooth, much like a natural tooth root. The dentist can then restore the dental implant with a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on how many teeth the patient needs to replace.
What is the cost of a dental implant?
The cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient due to many factors that are taken into consideration, including:
- How many implants will be placed
- The number of teeth being replaced
- The type of restoration being placed over the implant
- Any dental insurance benefits that the patient’s insurer provides to reduce out-of-pocket costs
- The amount of bone available for placement and whether bone grafting is necessary
During a consultation visit with Dr. Munira Lokhandwala, patients can determine if dental implants are the best choice for replacing their missing or extracted teeth while ensuring they fit within their budget.
