More often than not, your dental implants will be stronger than your natural teeth, and just as functional. Dental implants start with a titanium device implanted into the jaw bone to support an artificial tooth (or teeth). Once your dental implants are complete, you’ll be able to continue enjoying your favorite foods thanks to your healthy, beautiful replacement teeth.
The average length of treatment for a dental implant ranges from three to six months. A dental implant may take longer when jaw surgery and bone grafting are required. Most of the time for treatment is spent waiting for the bone to completely fuse with the implant below the gum line. Once that is complete, the remainder of the treatment is fairly quick. But you won’t go without your teeth — dentures or partials can be worn over the implants while they fuse with the bone.
This question requires knowledge of your specific situation — making it more complicated. However, in getting the answer, you’ll better understand your dental care priorities. The actual cost of dental implants depends on the quality of the bone foundation for the implant, the number of teeth needing to be replaced, the type of implants, and the total number of implants necessary. Once these variables are understood, the total cost of your implant can be more accurately determined. The average cost for standard dental implants can range from $1800 to $2500 per fixture, but there are many other costs that can contribute. The dentists at Cairn Dental have the expertise to determine the best course of action should you be interested in dental implants.
