Dental implants are one of the most effective and long-lasting tooth replacement options on the market today. They are extremely versatile, and can be customized to each individual patient’s particular needs. For this reason, the overall cost of treatment can vary substantially. Factors include the type of restoration to be received (single tooth crown, multi-tooth bridge, full-arch denture) and the current state of a patient’s mouth. You may require preparatory treatment like a bone graft to help ensure successful placement, or encounter some other special circumstance.
While dental implants do represent a significant investment, it is an investment that patients find to be absolutely worthwhile. It is true that implants are more expensive than treatments like traditional bridges or dentures, but they also tend to last significantly longer than their traditional counterparts. Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care, something that traditional dentures and bridges can’t say.
