What is the cost per tooth for dental implants in Daly City, California?
Patients faced with tooth loss in the Daly City, California area are often interested in discussing the benefits of solutions such as dental implants. Dental implants allow a patient to replace one or more teeth in the smile with the help of an experienced dentist. These restorations feel, look, and function as natural teeth.
How much does an implant cost per tooth?
There are various factors that need to be taken into consideration when it comes to determining the cost of a dental implant. The cost of a dental implant in Daly City and San Mateo County ranges between $2500 and $3500. We offer the dental implant placement, abutment, and dental crown for restoring a single tooth. Fortunately, patients who have dental insurance may be able to reduce these costs dramatically, reducing the out-of-pocket expenses of this and other procedures patients might need at our dental practice.
Am I a candidate for a dental implant?
Before moving forward with placing and restoring a dental implant, patients need to make sure they are viable candidates for implants. They are also patients who have not experienced significant bone resorption, or bone loss, in the jaw. To place a dental implant, it requires sufficient bone structure where the implant is surgically placed. If there is not enough bone, the treatment will be unsuccessful, and patients may need to consider alternative options such as bone or block grafting.
Can I become a candidate for dental implants?
If you have experienced bone loss but are serious about using dental implants to restore your smile, you may still have the option of preparing the area with bone grafting. This builds up the bone with man-made or natural bone donations to allow the possibility of placing implants later. This requires additional surgeries but may be a worthwhile investment for many patients serious about tooth replacement.
How long does it take to place an implant?
It takes a few hours to place a dental implant and a temporary crown can be provided on the same visit. Many weeks are needed to wait out the process of osseointegration, where the jawbone wraps around the implant to hold it in place. The entire treatment is finished in four to six months.
