Your tooth is failing, and it is become increasingly more difficult to live with. Chewing is challenging because it’s a back tooth, and laughing is definitely out of the question since you can see the broken and discolored tooth. Your dentist has told you it needs to be removed, but you also know that it will need to be replaced. Here is why dental implants in Plainview may be the right solution.
Implants Give You the Look and Feel of A Natural Tooth
A dental implant uses a titanium post that is placed into your jawbone to replace your root. Titanium is biocompatible and naturally integrates with your bone over time, becoming part of your dental anatomy and creating a firm foundation for your new tooth.
Your implant crown is the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gum line. It is made of high quality ceramic porcelain that can be customized to match your surrounding teeth so it blends flawlessly with your smile. Since your crown is also designed to closely mimic your natural tooth, it also provides the same function you had before your tooth was lost, so you’ll be eating and chewing again with ease.
How Much do Dental Implants Cost?
The cost of dental implants varies greatly with each patient depending on their needs and the complexity of their case. Dental implants are capable of supporting dental prosthetics such as a bridge, partial, or denture that make it possible to replace multiple missing teeth. So the cost of one of these appliances will be higher than that of a single tooth replacement.
The range in cost of a single tooth replacement could be anywhere from $1500 to $3000. The best place to start to determine exactly what your own implant dentistry might cost is a consultation with your dentist in Plainview. They can discuss your needs, goals, and budget for your smile and give you an exact idea of what the cost will be.
Dental insurance doesn’t tend to offer much coverage for dental implants, and your dentist’s insurance coordinator can help you determine if your unique plan offers any benefit.
There are also companies such as CareCredit that offer financing for larger treatment plans such as implant dentistry. CareCredit can break the cost of your dentistry into easy and affordable payments that you make over time so that your treatment fits comfortably into your budget.
