Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants are widely recognized as the finest option available for patients who are missing teeth. The restorative solution can restore form and function to your smile, while also protecting your oral health. Many patients who suffer from tooth loss have questions about the cost of dental implants. The doctors at our Palm Harbor, Trinity, and Spring Hill offices can help you understand the different factors that affect the total price of dental implant treatment. If you have been considering dental implants or any other restorative procedure, please contact our offices to make an appointment with one of our doctors.
Restoring Your Smile
A dental implant is a zirconia or titanium post that is surgically embedded in the jawbone to replace the missing tooth’s roots. Implants are attached to a dental crown, bridge, or denture and provide unparalleled stability.
On the day of your surgery, your doctor will make a small incision in your gum tissue to expose the bone. The dental implant will be placed in its optimal location and angle. This ensures it can provide adequate support for your restoration while withstanding pressure and bite force from chewing and speaking. Many patients will have a temporary restoration placed while the site heals. For some patients, we are able to attach the permanent restoration immediately after surgery using Same-Day Teeth®.
