If you’re looking around for a smile solution, chances are you’ve heard of dental implants. But what are they, and what separates them from tooth replacements like crowns or bridges? If you want the specifics, you’ve come to the right blog. Let’s delve into all things dental implants.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are dental crowns taken a step further. Whilst crowns mimic the function and appearance of natural teeth, they don’t delve further than that. Dental implants, on the other hand, are titanium screws that a dentist places into the gums. They replace teeth down to the root and are considered a permanent smile solution. (Please note that dental implants come with compulsory crowns, which will likely require replacing every 15–20 years.)
Many of our patients choose dental implants because they’re the next best thing to natural teeth. Attach your crowns to replacement roots and you’ll never need to keep them by the bed in a jar. Implants not only make for stronger teeth, but also for a healthier jaw. Once the implants fuse to the jawbone, this will block the inevitable jaw recession that occurs once a tooth is missing.
How much are dental implants?
Dental implants in Lara cost anywhere between $1,500 to $3,000 per tooth. As is the case with most dental procedures, treatment prices vary depending on the case at hand. The more premium the materials, the more your dental implants will cost. Other factors affecting the price will include case complexity and the standard of service received.
