Well, having ALL of your teeth replaced by dental implants will rival the cost of a nice car. However, most dental implant treatment is much simpler than that, and possibly not as much as you may think.
For instance, if you wear a loose lower denture, 2 implants may be placed with attachment (or "snaps") to convert it to a "snap-in" lower denture, for roughly $5000.
Or, if you're only missing a single tooth and don't want to grind down the tooth on either side for a bridge, for less than $1000 more than the cost of a 3-unit bridge, you may be able to simply replace that missing tooth and not attack your other teeth, especially if they are healthy!
Of course, this all depends on whether or not you have enough bone to hold an implant. If you would like to find out if you are a candidate for simple implant placement, or if you have any implant questions, please feel free to call our office at 972-414-7195 to schedule a complimentary implant screening exam and x-ray.
