Single Tooth Dental Implants
Rebuild Your Smile from Root to Crown
All of us at Premier Care Dental have seen the challenges that go along with having a broken or missing tooth. Your speech, ability to eat and your self-confidence may all be compromised. Fortunately, we’ve also seen what dental implants in Medford can do to remedy the entire situation. With these tooth replacements, your smile is restored, so you can get back to your regular routine without a care!
What Are Single Tooth Implants?
A single tooth implant is much like one of your own natural teeth. A small post—usually made of the biocompatible metal titanium—is surgically positioned in your jawbone. With time, the post and surrounding bone tissue integrate to form a solid foundation. This replaces the root of a missing tooth and helps to maintain the natural shape of your jaw. After a few months, the process is completed when your dentist in Medford attaches an abutment and dental crown. The post, abutment and crown comprise the entire dental implant that will look, feel and function just like a real tooth. To care for your dental implant, just brush and floss as you usually do. Be sure to schedule regular dental checkups, too, so we can assess the integrity of the implant from time to time.
How Much Does a Single Dental Implant Cost?
Every patient’s situation is different, so the best way to determine how much a dental implant in Medford is going to cost is by scheduling a consultation with the dentist. Generally speaking, however, a single tooth dental implant runs between $3,000 and $5,000.
Most dental insurance does not provide coverage for dental implants, but be sure to check the details of your plan. A portion of the process, such as the tooth replacement itself, may be covered.
In addition, we would be glad to help you finance your dental implant with Care Credit, an industry leader with a large presence in the health care lending marketplace.
CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that allows you to cover the cost of many dental treatments including restorative procedures such as dental implants. The difference between CareCredit and other credit cards such as Visa or MasterCard is that this offers special financing options to accommodate your budget.
