Dental implants are an option that allows missing teeth to be replaced with ones that look, feel, and perform close as possible like their own. Implant dentistry surgically places a titanium screw or post in the patient’s jaw. After the gums have healed around the embedded post, a replacement tooth is attached to the top of it.
Dental implants are a vast improvement over conventional dentures. They’re more stable and user-friendly than many other teeth replacement options, and because the posts that secure dental implants in place are integrated into the jaw, they also help prevent bone loss and gum recession.
The cost of dental implants varies depending on the number of missing teeth and the area of the country in which the implant dentistry is performed. Prior to treatment, your dental professional can go over implant prices and discuss your payment options with you. Fortunately, financing is available for people who require advanced treatment such as dental implant placement.
