The costs of dental implants differ depending on the number of teeth affected and implants needed. Also, services such as the dentist, the implant placement and the denturist, who will make your dentures, are added to these costs. The investment goes beyond a few thousand dollars, depending on the treatment chosen. A simpler intervention will, of course, be more affordable.
On the other hand, to have an optimal result, it is important to choose the treatment that will best meet your needs. We will present to you all the possibilities of costs and reimbursements to allow you to prepare your mouth to accommodate new dental implants.
For those who have dental insurance, unfortunately, they do not take the surgery but usually cover an amount on the prosthetic part that equates to 15 to 20% of the treatment. Implant dentures are precision prostheses made by your denturologist. They are attached directly or indirectly to a titanium implant that acts as an artificial root.
These implants are inserted into the jawbone. The operation, performed by a dental surgeon, allows dental implants to adhere to bone tissue permanently. In this process, your denturologist works in collaboration with a dental surgeon who specializes in the placement of dental implants.
On average, 2 to 5 dental implants can be inserted into the lower jaw (the mandible). For the upper jaw (maxillary), 4 to 10 implants may be needed. This advanced process makes it possible to stabilize the dental prosthesis almost permanently. Only a few minor adjustments may be necessary during a lifetime.
The solution of implant dentures is the best that your denturologist, with the help of a specialized dentist, can offer you.
