Before dental implants were developed, dentures were the only option for replacing missing teeth. Dental medicine has since advanced significantly. Implants are biocompatible prosthetics, using synthetic roots as anchors that fit where your tooth's root used to be. The jawbone fuses with the synthetic root, securing it into place so that it can support the attachment of a fixed restoration. Implants are so well designed that they superbly mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth.
Dr. Paschal has worked with dental implants for a number of years. Although we no longer place them in our office (we work with a specialist who provides the surgical phase of treatment), we continue to provide the permanent restorative prosthetics that are placed on top of the implant root.
Single Tooth Replacement (Implant Crowns)
Ceramic crowns are matched carefully to the shade and shape of your nearby teeth - and then attached directly over the individual implant root. The result? A new prosthetic tooth that looks just like the real thing.
Instead of wearing a removable denture or altering your adjacent teeth to attach a bridge, we can use implants. Because of their strength, they allow Dr. Paschal to replace more teeth at one time than conventional bridges.
All-on-4® Implant Retained Dentures
In some cases, as few as four implants can be used to attach dentures into place. You’ll love the slimmer design, improved comfort, and the stability that they provide.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
The simple answer to how much dental implants cost is this: it depends. Just like any surgery, there are numerous factors that can influence the cost of dental implants. We can provide you an accurate estimate after a consultation with Dr. Paschal. Considerations include:
- The quality, amount, and location of bone. If you require bone grafting, the total costs associated with your implants will be higher.
- The number of teeth that need to be replaced and the type of dental implant that will be used.
- Dental insurance. Some insurances cover only parts of implant treatment, or have a waiting period for eligibility.
If you're concerned about the cost of dental implants, call our West Reno dental practice to schedule consultation. We'll take the time to determine whether you're a good candidate for implants, and discuss all of your financial options with you.
