Dental implants have become the standard of care in tooth replacement. Hassles and inconveniences of dentures are non-existent with implants. This option gets you the best looking smile compared to other tooth replacement options.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium roots that are placed in the jawbone to replace the missing root portion of a tooth. Implants provide a strong foundation for permanent or temporary teeth. There are several different shapes and sizes of dental implants, but the most commonly used now are known as “root form” implants.
It is the best available option for tooth replacement to restore function and to give you the best smile. Implants are easier to clean, maintain and lasts longer.

Why consider dental implants vs dentures?
- Improved look – dental implants look like your own teeth, giving you the best looking smile possible when replacing your lost tooth.
- Easier speech – unlike dentures, you have the piece of mind of knowing your dental implants will not slip while you speak.
- Stops the bone loss process associated with the loss of a natural tooth
- Improve confidence by allowing patients to eat and smile without worry of a prosthetic falling out or moving
- Dental implants last longer and can offer you cost savings over time

Dental implant cost
There are multiple factors that can affect the overall treatment costs. The price for dental implants surgery typically ranges from $3000-$4000 depending on following factors
- Skill of the dentist
- The geographic area of dental office
- Is there adequate bone for dental implant placement without having bone grafts or sinus elevations
- Is a 3D conebeam used in the process
- Will guided dental implant surgery be needed to carefully place implants around vital structures (sinus, nerves)
- Is there less bone width, requiring more than 1 implant to allow proper support for a single tooth replacement
- How many total teeth are being replaced
- Will the prosthetic teeth be removable or fixed ( cemented/screwed into place)
- For overdentures and hybrid dentures the number of dental implants and type of prosthetics can increase the cost (but are still more economical than replacing every tooth with a dental implant)
