You may be knowing, that dental implants are one of the most preferred options for missing tooth or multiple teeth. Implants are titanium posts which are machine-made replacements for tooth roots. They can be used to anchor on a single or multiple missing teeth, support a denture or restore an entire mouth.

What concerns most people, is the cost factor , whether it’s a painful procedure, the chances of success and its durability. Here are some quick answers to some basic questions related to single implant placement:

Are you a candidate for dental implants?

Well, your prosthodontist (trained in restorative dentistry like crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants, cosmetics) can best tell you after assessing a number of factors such as your overall general health, quality of jaw bone, oral hygiene, diabetes, lifestyle habits such as smoking etc.

How much does a dental implant cost for a single tooth?

Dental implant costs vary from office to office and from patient to patient depending on the location of the placement of implant, the oral and bone health, the quality of implant, the technologies used and the experience and expertise of the dentist.

The basic fee for placing a single implant with suitable bone , can range from $1500 to $3000 without bone augmentation. Where the bone quality is poor, bone augmentation or bone grafting is a must and this can significantly increase the cost of the procedure.

Additionally, the cost of the titanium or zirconium post that inserts into the implant, and the cost of the crown that sits on the post, adds up – the cost of the post plus the crown can range from $1500 to $3000. Further, if the procedure involves two different specialists to do the surgery and the prosthetics, the cumulative fee can be higher.

What to expect for a dental implant placement for a single tooth?

Generally having a single implant placed is not considered to be a serious surgery. The procedure to surgically place a single dental implant is most commonly performed with local anesthesia (sedation dentistry), and almost painlessly.

Post operation, patients often report that they experienced less pain from having an implant placed as compared to a tooth extraction. Once the anesthesia wears out, some discomfort may be expected which can be well managed with analgesics.

What is the success rate of Dental Implant placement for a single tooth?

The success rate and longevity of dental implants continue to improve with enhancements made in implant design, technologies, the experience and the expertise of the dentist. At Langley dental center the, success rate is 95% to 98% for almost all areas of implant placement.
