Dental Implants Toluca Lake
Many people in the United States are missing teeth and nothing can ruin a smile more than gaps in your teeth. The best solution for replacing missing teeth is dental implants
and that’s why we offer high quality dental implants for our Toluca Lake patients.
What are dental implants?
They are small medical screws that connect to your jaw bone. On top of these screws we put a dental crown
that looks like all of your other teeth. The advantage is they are anchored to your actual jaw, like your real teeth. You can chew with them, bite down on hard things, and generally treat them like the rest of your teeth. Filling in the gaps in your teeth will restore your smile to full working condition.
What does it cost?
There are a lot of factors that can affect cost:
||Do you have enough bone in your jaw to support an implant? This could lead to needing a bone graft, increasing the cost.
||Do you have healthy gums? Periodontal disease can lead to implants falling out. It should be treated anyway, but that will increase the cost.
||Do you have a uniquely shaped root canal? Going around awkwardly shaped jaw features can add cost.
Barring any of these exceptions, dental implants can cost upwards of $2,500 out of pocket. It would most likely be out of pocket because most insurances consider dental implants a cosmetic procedure. Though it is cosmetic, there are so many other benefits from having a complete smile, and not necessarily the ones you are thinking of.
Should I get dental implants?
Have we talked you out of it? Think about that gap in your teeth. How many times have you gotten food stuck there? How many times have you thought “I can’t eat that” because of your missing teeth? A dental implant will fix these problems permanently. You can even get to a point where you forget that the implant is there.
Still not convinced about dental implants?
Dental Implants can save your teeth. When you are missing a tooth, your body re-absorbs the unused bone where the tooth used to be which weakens the jaw under the neighboring teeth. It could accelerate the loss of those teeth. Having a chewing tooth in your jaw causes your body to shore up the bone underneath it.
How much is a complete smile worth?
How much did you spend on your last bedroom set? Your car? How much do you spend on restaurants each year? Dental implants can make those restaurants better. They can make you feel better about yourself too. There are so many things you must pay for that you don’t really feel from day to day. Take advantage of the one that will improve your quality of life.
