Types of Dental Implants

Dental implants are, by far, the most versatile restorative solution available. When it comes to replacing your missing teeth, it doesn’t matter if you’re missing one or all your teeth, they are capable of bringing new life to your smile. The cost of your implant treatment will also depend on how many posts you need.

  • Single Tooth – If all you require is a replacement for one tooth, a single dental implant can be placed. Apart from the post, you will also need a metal abutment and custom dental crown, which will sit atop your post and blend in with the rest of your smile.
  • Multiple Teeth – If multiple, consecutive teeth are missing, our team can insert two or more implants into your jawbone and create a customized dental bridge that will restore your smile’s natural beauty.
  • All Teeth – If you need an entire arch of teeth replaced, an implant-retained denture can be created. This is often the costliest option but when compared to traditional dentures, it is much more cost-effective in the long run because you won’t need to frequently reline and replace your prosthetics.

What Are the Stages of Dental Implant Treatment?

The process of receiving dental implants occurs in stages. From the initial consultation to the surgical positioning of your implants to the finalized placement of your custom restoration, each step incurs its own fee.

During your consultation, we will examine your smile and take impressions that will serve as a blueprint for your restoration creation. We will also discuss the process of receiving implants and how much you can expect it to cost.

Next, we will schedule an appointment to place your implants, which will require our team to surgically position and place your posts into your jawbone. Once this is accomplished, you will spend the next 3-6 months at home healing and allowing the implants to fuse with the bone and surrounding tissues to create a solid and stable foundation.

After you’re cleared to return, the final aspect of treatment is to receive your custom-made restoration. No matter if it’s a dental crown, implant bridge, or implant-retained denture, this unique and personalized prosthetic will be affixed to the top of your implants to create a beautifully restored smile.

Are Dental Implants Worth the Investment?

The benefits that come from having dental implants placed cannot be achieved with any other form of restorative tooth replacement. From their longevity and lifespan to their ability to provide a natural look and greater functionality when eating, speaking, or chewing, it is certainly safe to say that they are worth the investment.

Yes, dental implants do cost more upfront than a fixed bridge or dentures; however, when you look at the continual maintenance needed with other more traditional solutions, it’s no surprise that dental implants are a preferred method of treatment.

Does My Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Most dental insurance companies do not cover the cost of dental implant placement. It is advised that you look at your policy and talk to a representative just to be sure. Some companies are beginning to understand that implants are more of a necessity than a “want” and will cover some or all of your treatment.

Even if your insurance company does not agree to cover the surgical aspect, they might agree to pay for your initial consultation, custom restoration, or any pre-implant dental work you might need (i.e. bone graft, sinus lift).

No matter the outcome, our team is here to help ensure you get the smile you deserve while staying within your budget.
