How much does a dental implant cost for one tooth?
Dental implant costs will vary by individual based on the condition of the existing tooth, if there is one, and their jawbone structure. If there is an existing tooth in place, it will need to be removed as part of the procedure to replace it with an implant. The cost of the existing tooth extraction will be added to the cost of the implant procedure. The placement of the implant will also impact the price as some implants will be more difficult to place correctly. Implants in the front of the mouth require more finite placement to ensure they align with the rest of the teeth for a natural look that won’t affect your bite. Your mouth, gums and jawbone will all need to be evaluated to determine the feasibility of the implant. Additional prep work may need to be performed on the jaw if there isn’t an adequate amount of bone density, typically involving a bone graft. Individuals who suffer from gum disease will need to have that treated prior to a dental implant procedure. Your dentist or the dental professional performing the implant will be able to give you a quote for the treatment that encompasses any preparation work or pre-treatment required for your unique situation. Also, it is also always best to check with your insurance company as different plans have different coverage options.
Can you get a dental implant for one tooth?
Yes, you can absolutely get a dental implant for a single tooth. In fact, you can get dental implants for as few or as many teeth as you want or need. A dental implant can have several advantages for tooth replacement over other options that have been used previously. Single teeth have commonly been replaced using a bridge, however the benefits of an implant are making it a feasible option that is growing in popularity. A dental implant looks and functions the same as a natural tooth, with it being firmly anchored into the jawbone. This not only gives the tooth stability and strength, it also keeps the bone of the jaw intact and healthy, whereas a bridge can cause it to deteriorate over time. Dental implants are also individually supported by the implant which acts as a tooth root and doesn’t require support from adjacent teeth that typically need to be ground down, which sacrifices the integrity of the nearby teeth. Dental implants are easy to care for as they act like natural teeth and when properly cared for, can last a lifetime.
How long does a single tooth implant take?
The length of time needed for a single tooth implant will vary based on several factors. The type of implant treatment being completed will determine how long the procedure will take, as well as any preparation needed on the patient’s mouth, gums and jawbone. The implant post will typically be inserted and then allowed to heal over the course of two to six months before the final tooth is placed. During this time, the patient will have a temporary tooth placed over the implant post to cover it during the healing process. Once the gums are healed, the dentist will create and attach the final prosthetic tooth onto the post, ensuring that the size, color and placement matches and aligns with the rest of the natural teeth to provide the individual with a natural, confident smiles. Your dentist will be able to walk you through the steps and timing based on your unique situation, so you fully understand the procedure.
