How To Find Low Cost Dental Implants

Dental implants have replaced missing teeth to provide improved appearance, function, and safety for patients. The replacement teeth can be used for speech therapy and chewing food. There are two types of dental implants: removable and permanent. With dental implants, there is no need to replace the adjacent teeth or gum for several years, as the dental implant is designed to last a lifetime.

Dental implants are not covered by most dental insurance providers. In order to get dental implants, patients will need to undergo a dental surgery procedure, which may include one or more dental surgeries (if there are more than one missing teeth). The average cost of dental implants, including the preparation, abutments, and implant placement, is approximately $3,500. It also includes the post-operative oral hygiene evaluation, x-ray, and CT scan.

The procedure can be done under local anesthesia, general anesthesia, or regional anesthesia depending on the patient's medical condition and preferences. After the procedure, the patient will be given an anesthetic to reduce any pain. The implant will be attached to the bone of the jaw through surgical stents that are made from stainless steel, titanium, or bovine titanium. The cost of dental implants greatly depends on the factors mentioned above, such as: the number of missing teeth, the location of the missing teeth, the procedure type, the size of the dental implants, and the period of the treatment.
