Dublin area patients ask about the cost of dental implants
Dental implants are popular with patients who are interested in replacing missing teeth. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala, of StarBrite Dental in Dublin, California encourages patients to learn more about these restorations to determine if they are appropriate candidates. There are several benefits to dental implants, and by discussing the possibilities, many patients find that they are the most desirable option for their smile!
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants have many benefits. These restorations allow patients to replace one or more teeth. These versatile repairs can achieve a natural looking smile that functions as it did before tooth loss. The implants are titanium posts that are placed during oral surgery into the jawbone. The bone holds the implant in place and gives it the stability to function as a natural tooth root. The dentist can restore the implant in several ways. A single tooth replacement is often restored with a dental crown, while several teeth may require the placement of a bridge or full denture.
What is the cost of a dental implant?
There are several factors that affect the overall cost of placing implants. The first is the number of implants being placed. Second, how are they going to be restored? Third, is there a procedure such as bone grafting which may be needed beforehand to build up the bone and make it viable for placement? A consultation appointment can help with these determinations.
