Cost of Getting Dental Implants
Dental implants are the next best thing to having natural teeth. Therefore, for those who are missing one or more teeth, there is no better treatment than a dental implant. Understandably though, for those who are candidates for dental implants, one of the first questions they ask is, “how much do dental implants cost?”
Just as no two patients are alike, no two treatment plans for dental implants are exactly alike. The cost of a dental implant depends on many factors, including the number of appointments that will be needed, the type of implant needed and its location in the mouth. If you need a dental implant, your dentist will examine you and provide a treatment plan that includes an estimation of the cost of the treatment.
There are many benefits to dental implants over other treatment options. In the case of a single missing tooth, for instance, a bridge requires adjacent natural teeth to be crowned, but a dental implant only requires one crown.
There is more to consider about dental implants, though, than the initial cost outlay. Dental implants last longer than the alternative treatments for missing teeth. Bridges and dentures eventually break or wear down and need to be replaced. But implants that are properly cared for can last decades, even a lifetime. So, although the initial cost may be higher, over time dental implants tend to be no more costly than other treatments.
In addition to the durability, most patients also find the convenience that implants provide to be worth their cost. They are as easy to clean as natural teeth, and there are no restrictions on what you can eat.
