A dental implant is a small, titanium stud that is placed in the upper or jaw bone where a tooth is missing. Dental implants are the solution for most patients who are missing one or more teeth. Most of the time, only local anesthesia is needed.
Dental implants are placed in as little as one hour from start to finish, and one or more can be done in a single visit. However they require an average of 3 dental visits to complete the procedure; bone has to “grow” around the dental implant before the abutment and porcelain can be placed, and this can take about 4 months.
Our prices for a dental implant is $1500-1600 U.S. dollars. We work with Straumann dental implants. Our prices are between 30 to 50% less than in the U.S.
Dental implants are a great way to enjoy food again, whether you have upper or lower dentures, or both, they are a great way to support them and give you a way to enjoy your food at it should. Gastrointestinal problems is another factor why dental implants are important when it comes to enjoying food. The way we chew food and the quality of the portions are important to maintain a healthy overall gastrointestinal system; when food is correctly chewed, it provides the initial part of the digestive system. When we chew our food correctly we facilitate the digestive process and our body does not suffer in the long run to compensate for this part. Having fixed teeth, this being porcelain or acrylic (dentures), attached to dental implants makes a world of a difference.
