Implant Dentistry: The Costs and Benefits of Dental Implants
Looking to understand the costs and benefits of dental implants? You’ve come to the right place!
First discovered almost 70 years ago, implant dentistry is the practice of inserting a man-made, root shaped titanium structure into the jaw bone. This allows for either a single or multiple tooth replacement and denture support. In layman’s terms, dental implants are artificial roots used to help restore and replace missing teeth.
Implant dentistry has greatly evolved since the 1950s, and of course, the techniques have greatly improved! One thing that remains constant? The importance of its role in restoring beautiful smiles.
How much do dental implants cost?
Timelines and costs vary depending on each individual case. Simple cases can be turned around in a day. The more complex cases typically take 4-5 months to complete. Costs for a single implant involving surgery and a crown can range from $3,800 to $5,000.
Does insurance cover dental implants?
Private insurance will often cover at least a portion of your dental implants. This is dependent on your individual insurance plan though. Our team will work with you to determine your insurance coverage and answer any specific questions you may have.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
The benefits of implant dentistry are vast. Implant dentistry is a great way to help you achieve the smile of your dreams and can also help in many other ways.
Who is the best candidate for implant dentistry?
