About a Single Tooth Implant
A Tooth Implant, also known as a dental implant, involves the process of replacing a damaged or missing tooth with an artificial tooth. The artificial tooth is made up of Titanium and is given the shape of screws. It is made to fit deep inside the roots so that it doesn’t fall or come out like dentures.
The treatment involves making an incision in the gums and creating space by making a small hole in the jawbone. Then a titanium alloy cylinder is inserted into the jawbone which serves as an artificial root for holding the false tooth. The implants are then allowed to be healed. The healing period can last from 4 to 6 months during which time the implant would fuse with the jaw-bone for providing strong and stable support to the implant.
After the surgical procedure, the patients are given antibiotics and pain relievers. Within a few days, the implants start showing signs of healing. Your dentist would cover your implant with a crown or a bridge. The crown would be custom made so that it can blend easily with your other teeth. Depending on whether you are getting a single tooth implant for front teeth, back teeth or multiple teeth, the crown would be made up of metal, ceramic, or porcelain.
Cost of teeth implants
Teeth implants are usually expensive compared to dentures and other traditional, corrective dental procedures. Roughly, the cost can vary anywhere between $1000 and $4000, per tooth. The cost of teeth implants depends on several factors, including the fact that if you are getting a single tooth implant or multiple teeth implants, the amount of work that is done before the implants are placed, the experience and qualification of the dentist who is performing the surgery, the type of implant done, and the implant devices used.
The cost for teeth implants would be low if you want to get an implant for a single missing tooth or a few misaligned teeth. But if you want teeth restoration for full upper or lower jaws or you want full mouth restoration, the cost of the implants would be quite high.
Enjoying success out of dental implants
Studies have revealed 95% success rate for dental implants. When done correctly and if patients follow proper oral care and hygiene, implants can last for 10-20 years. Implants are not at all uncomfortable and they do not fall, break or chip. They are permanent and look aesthetically very pleasing. If you have a missing tooth or you need to replace a few teeth, look for a qualified, experienced, and reliable dentist to get the tooth implant procedure. The result would be a beautiful smile and natural looking teeth and enhanced confidence and self-esteem.
