Why Choose Dental Implants?

Illustration of dental implantA dental implant involves an artificial root anchored in your mouth. On the implant, a crown, bridge or denture can be attached to restore your missing tooth. Dental implants have become the gold standard in smile reconstruction. It can last for your entire lifetime and is cared for just like your natural teeth.

The many advantages of dental implants include their natural appearance, convenience and ability to maintain bone mass, which means a reduced likelihood of losing other teeth. You’ll be able to eat and speak without any concerns. Your self-esteem will increase and your facial profile will be preserved.

A Strong, Durable Tooth Replacement

An implant is a titanium screw and post. It can be covered with a denture, crown or bridge. Once the implant is placed in the jawbone, it needs to heal over several months. This process allows the implant to be accepted into the bone, making it act like a natural tooth root.

There are two types of implants:

  • Endosteal implants – Inserted into bone, the soft tissue then must heal. A surgery connects the implant with a post and an artificial tooth is affixed to it.
  • Subperiosteal implants – This type of implant is fitted into the bone below your gums.

The Cost of Dental Implants

It’s important to know that the cost of your procedure will vary depending on whether you need to complete other treatments first. It will also vary depending on the type of implant and the components of the materials and more. The full cost for a dental implant Madeley starts at $3950.
