What Are Dental Implants and What Do They Cost

There is considerable confusion about what is a dental implant and what they cost! A dental implant is really just a replacement for the root of a tooth. They are secured to the jawbone. They are made from titanium or a metal alloy and are extremely strong! Where most of the confusion comes is that on top of the implant there needs to be a crown, which in essence is the replacement for what most people consider the “tooth”! Dental implants can be quite expensive. Prices can range from $1,000 to $3,000 for each implant, and then there is the cost of the crown itself, which can be as much as $750 each! So in essence, a full dental implant can be quite an expensive proposition! You can get dental implants in most family dentistry offices. You do not need to go to a specialist. As with normal teeth, you need to maintain your implants with flossing and brushing.
