Even a single missing tooth can cause big problems for both your smile’s appearance and health, and if you’re looking for a replacement that will look great and stand the test of time, then dental implants are exactly the solution you want. A single tooth dental implant resembles a missing tooth in every way possible, and when placed by a qualified dentist like Dr. Stirneman, they have a 98% success rate and can easily last for 30 years or more. If you’re ready to get rid of that space in your smile, schedule your free consultation today.
What is a Single Tooth Dental Implant?
A dental implant is actually a small titanium post that is placed directly into the jawbone, and this is then attached to an all-porcelain crown to restore the tooth above the gum line. This root not only gives a new tooth tremendous stability, but it also helps preserve the shape and strength of the jaw. In fact, while you are healing from the placement procedure (which involves a minor surgery we will perform in-house), this artificial root will naturally meld with your jawbone just like your other teeth. In the end, they provide a solution that completely resembles a real tooth both inside and out.
The Advantages of Single Tooth Dental Implants
More and more dentists and patients are choosing to get dental implants because they provide a number of unique benefits:
- Security: Compared to every other single tooth replacement treatment out there, dental implants are by far the strongest, giving a patient the stability they simply can’t expect from a partial denture or bridge.
- Longevity: Single tooth implants have been shown to last for 30 years or more, much longer than other conventional treatments.
- Appearance: Not only with the porcelain crown blend into your smile, but the implant itself will help maintain the shape of your jaw, which directly affects the overall look of your face.
How Much Does a Dental Implant Cost?
The cost of a single dental implant can vary widely from person to person depending on their dental health, overall health, as well as the height and width of their jawbone. On average, the cost, which consists of the placement procedure and the implant itself, can range from about $2,500-$5,000 per tooth.
While a dental implant may cost more than a partial denture or fixed bridge up front, It is the better financial decision over time. Also, more and more insurance plans are starting to cover dental implants, and our practice has a multitude of financing options that can break up the cost into smaller monthly payments.
