Teeth which are gone for good need to have a viable alternative which will give the remaining teeth a suitable companion so that they can all continue to function together in tandem, the same natural way in which they co-existed when they were all there.
If we take dentures as an instance, they are clearly not a suitable option even when all or most teeth are lost, since the mouth is not able to undertake its requisite functions optimally. On the other hand, with dental implants in place, the teeth – as indeed the mouth as a whole can continue to function the same way it always did, as though nothing was missing in the first place.
There is a multitude of factors that contribute to the cost of dental implants; therefore the final figure generally varies from patient to patient.
Typically, the basic dental implant cost consists of two parts. The first is the cost of the implant itself, which is the titanium post that goes into the bone and serves as the base. The second cost is for the “tooth”, the porcelain crown that is affixed over the titanium base.
Beyond these basic costs, a number of patient-specific factors can contribute to the final cost. For instance, the condition of the bone over which the implant will be affixed is very important. To determine this, a Computed Tomography (CT) Scan can often be necessary to determine the bone’s quantity as well as quality. If the bone is weak, steps will need to be taken in order to strengthen or regenerate the bone.
Finally, other costs can be accrued through doctor consultation, administrative and preparatory work, and of course the dental implant surgery itself.
