Dental Implant is a popular method for addressing missing teeth. Titanium supports are placed into the bone where the tooth used to be, acting as an anchor for the replacement porcelain tooth.
Dental Implants are artificial replacements which are used in cases of tooth loss. The implant procedure falls under both prosthetic dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. If you suffer from tooth loss, Centennial Dental Hamilton can permanently restore your smile with our dental implants procedure.
There are several options to consider when treating missing teeth. However, dental implants have been proven more functional, effective as well as durable. In fact, there are many cases in which dental implants are the only solution in restoring the proper functions of the teeth along with the supporting structures. Dental implants are also often used to support several dental prostheses such as a crown, bridge and a permanent denture (All on 4).
Depending upon the conditions of your teeth and requirements of each individual case, a single dental implant can cost around $1,000 to $5,000. For patients without dental insurance or whose dental insurance does not cover the cost of treatment,
Your specific circumstances may call for additional procedures requiring extra work for the posterior mandible, sinus elevation, bone regeneration, and the diameter needed for the successful placement of the implant. These additional procedures can cause the cost of a dental implant to rise significantly resulting in fees anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000 to complete treatment.
However, there is a common misconception that dental implant procedures are more expensive than the alternative restorative options available. This is simply not true. Actually, dental implants are much more cost effective than the other procedures used in restoring tooth loss. The other procedures available for tooth restoration will require repairs, maintenance, replacements, and additional procedures to preserve the facial structure and prevent additional tooth loss.
For example, patients receiving a bridge restorative treatment will likely require additional procedures to treat teeth that were shaved down in the process, repairs to treat bone defects, or an entire replacement bridge. Over the course of 10 to 15 years, a patient may require bone repair and a single bridge replacement resulting in over $6,000. A dental implant along with a supported crown would’ve cost $2,000 to $4,000.
There are several factors that tie into the cost of a dental implant such as the dentist’s experience, location, the materials used to construct the implant, as well as the coverage provided by your dental insurance.
The cost for dental implants used in full mouth reconstruction will range from $24,000 to $100,000.
All-on-4 dental implants are a way to best restore the full arches of the upper and lower jaws. The procedure uses only four implants to secure all teeth in place hence, the name All-on-4. The All-on-4 procedure provides especially effective restoration in both the upper and lower jaw.
Previous treatments required patients to receive a total of six or more implants, with treatment extending throughout 18 months of treatment. The patients were then forced to leave the office without any teeth or a poorly fitting temporary denture for over a year! With the All-on-4 procedure, we make sure our patients leave our office smiling- with a brand new set of replacement teeth!
