A dental implant is a small man-made titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to bond with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth can look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
The benefits of implant treatment include:
- The enhanced ability to chew and enjoy your food
- Offer protection of your remaining teeth and jawbone
Basic Implants are $1,200 - $3,500 each, but the total cost can go up to $4,000 - $ 6,000 depending on location, complexity and the need for bone or gum restoration work. We do offer a no interest payment option for qualified candidates.
Dental implants offer many benefits never before available for the treatment of missing teeth. In short, dental implants will look, feel, and function like your real teeth. Please contact our office if you have further questions or if you qualify for this service.
