Determining Your Treatment Cost
It is important to remember that when you choose to receive dental implants, you are not only purchasing the restoration itself; you are also paying for highly personalized and precise dental care. There are several elements that can influence the cost of dental implants. For example, if you have compromised jawbone health, you may need a bone graft or sinus lift procedure. In addition, the number of implants you need, the material you choose for your restorations, and even the type of sedation you receive can all have an impact on the cost of your treatment.
To make the most of your investment, you should choose a highly experienced implant specialist who can treat you with the latest technology and superior skill. During his dental residency, Dr. Wu concentrated on oral medicine, and he gained further surgical experience during his time at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. Dr. Dowd completed her dental residency in a program focused on prosthodontics. This expertise enables them to treat patients with the highest-quality dental care.
Investing in Your Oral Health
Implants are the only restorative treatment that can prevent the jawbone degeneration that accompanies tooth loss. The implant post actually becomes a permanent part of your body, and in some cases, implants can actually help to regenerate lost jawbone cells.
While implants usually have a larger upfront cost than other restorative treatments, they typically last much longer than other dental restorations. In fact, with proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Because of their longevity, implants often cost less than other treatment options in the long run. While other restorations may need to be replaced periodically to accommodate changing jawbone structure, implants will remain stable for decades.
Advanced Technology for Enhanced Patient Care
In addition to their longevity and ability to protect your oral health, implants offer many other advantages. Perhaps most significantly, implant-supported restorations are nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth. At Signature Smiles, we work with the highly esteemed Nakanishi Lab® to provide our patients with customized restorations made from the strongest and most lifelike materials.
Implants also function like natural teeth. Our doctors precisely place each implant using computed tomography (CT) scans. These images enhance the placement of your implant posts, ensuring they heal properly and can restore your bite for years to come.
