When teeth are missing, patients may experience impairment in eating and speaking correctly. Additionally, they may deal with the inability to properly chew and digest their food. Teeth may space out if missing teeth are not replaced in a timely manner. Dr. Shivani Gupta and her associates at Peninsula Dental Implant Center in the San Francisco, CA area offer dental implant restoration, a cost-effective solution to missing teeth.
Understanding the dental implant
Implants used in the medical field are often made of titanium, a metal that is biocompatible with the body. This metal is also used in dental implants. The implant itself looks like a small screw that the dentist will place during oral surgery along the dental arch. It can be restored with a single dental crown to replace one tooth, or several along the dental arch may support a full denture to replace the entire arch of teeth. Regardless of how many teeth you are placing, CT Scans and x-rays are done to ensure patients are good candidates. These individuals should have enough bone of the jaw available for successful placement.
What is the cost of a dental implant restoration?
The cost of this treatment varies from patient to patient based on several factors. This includes:
- A patient’s dental insurance coverage
- The number of implants needed
- The method of restoration
- Any other concerns that may need to be addressed prior
- Bone grafting, if performed
Typical price for a single dental implant ranges from $2000 to $3500 and you can get new tooth in as little as one day.
