Dental Implants FAQs
1. What are dental implants?
Dental implants are made of biocompatible material called titanium. A hole is placed in the jaw in which the implant is inserted. Dental implants are the anchors to which replacement teeth will be screwed. Implants are used for single tooth replacements, multiple teeth, or entire mouth rehabilitation. Dentures are often stabilized with implants which allows for greater stability and function.
2. How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of replacing a a single tooth with a dental implant can range depending on your location. In most cases, they can range anywhere from $2,500 to $4,500. At Mt. Ogden Dental & Implant Clinic we offer affordable dental and implant services. One of the several perks you get as a patient at our clinic is that we will work with you in determining the best financial option for you.
3. What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants offer a variety of benefits for our patients. Not only do they replace 1 or more missing teeth, but they help preserve the bone, restore aesthetics to the face, and improve confidence.
4. How long do dental implants last?
Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to dental diseases and cavities.
Although each patient is different, the lifespan of dental implants depends on dental hygiene, medical history, and a variety of other factors.
