Implant Dentistry: A Valuable Investment
Because dental implants fuse firmly into the jawbone, they are both sturdy and remarkably durable, and provide a marked improvement in functionality over alternative restorations. And since the prosthetic teeth they support feel and look natural, they offer considerable cosmetic benefits as well.
While dental implants carry a greater cost than traditional dentures, they provide a solution that will last for many years, and possibly even decades. To get a more detailed idea of how much dental implants cost, contact Dr. Nathaniel Podilsky in Edmonton, Alberta today.
The Cost of Dental Implants Varies
When investigating the cost of dental implants, keep in mind the factors contributing to their expense. The cost reflects the quality of the materials used in the implant and prosthetic tooth—such as titanium and porcelain—as well as the time and skill required for the procedure itself.
While quotes for dental implants typically range from $2,000 to $4,000, the exact cost of your tooth replacement will depend on several variables and may, therefore, fall outside of this neighborhood. Among these variables are the number of missing teeth that need to be replaced and the number of implant posts that are necessary to secure your dental restorations. Depending on the scope of your procedure, the cost of your treatment may be less or more than the average price.
Because the dental implant is anchored into the jawbone, it is also important that your gums and teeth be in good health and that you have sufficient bone in the jaw to support the implant posts. For some patients, bone grafting and other procedures may be necessary prior to the placement of dental implants. If you require any additional treatments in preparation for your dental implant surgery, these procedures will affect the overall cost as well.
Contacting the practice for a consultation is the best way to establish the precise cost of your implants.
