If you’ve lived with broken, decayed, or missing teeth for a long time, you may have forgotten just how wonderful it feels to eat, speak, and smile without pain or embarrassment. There are few things more confidence-building than being able to show a beautiful, shiny smile to the world each day. Dental implants enable you to experience all of those benefits once again.
For many people, they represent a new lease on life. Dental implants are the most durable and natural-looking replacement option for missing teeth. Made of biocompatible titanium, they can last a lifetime with proper, regular care. Taking all these into consideration, it can be difficult to calculate the true value of dental implants. Below we’ll explore a few of the factors that may figure into your dental implant cost.
Dental implants require you to have adequate bone in your jaw. When your jawbone becomes decayed, bone grafting may be necessary to rebuild the bone to the extent that it will support dental implants. We can restore your jawbone here in our Tavares, FL office by taking a piece of bone from another part of your body and placing it where the bone has deteriorated. As the graft heals it will become a permanent part of your jaw.
You may not only have missing teeth but decayed teeth that you want to replace with dental implants. If so, we will need to extract them in order to make room in your jaw for the dental implants. Tooth extractions carry an additional charge.
You may need anywhere from a single dental implant to two full arches of dental implants. The cost for multiple implants is proportionately higher than the cost of a single implant. That said, the eye-catching results of dental implants will speak for themselves, no matter how many you have placed!
The best way to determine your actual dental implant cost is by meeting with our dentists for a personal consultation here in our Tavares, FL office. We’ll listen to your concerns, do a thorough oral examination to assess your current state of dental health, and recommend a course of action which may include any or all of the procedures mentioned here, as well as others. We can also explain the dental implant placement process to you in greater detail, answering any questions you may have. From there, we’ll be better able to calculate your total dental implant cost.
