Advantages of Implants
Implants are Cost Efficient
The price of dental implants are very cost-efficient. If properly cared for, your dental implant can last for many years.
The titanium post helps to retain bone density in the jaw by providing the necessary stimulation to the bone, making it one of the healthiest ways of replacing a missing tooth. All other remaining teeth are kept whole and intact, as there is no need to grind down any healthy teeth for a bridge.
Dental Implants are Versatile
Dental implants can be used for a number a procedures. They can replace a single crown or replace many teeth. Dental implants can support bridges or even dentures, keeping them firmly in place so you can get on with your life with confidence.
Mostly a Straightforward Procedure
The actual implant process is quite straightforward and most people find it easy to cope with. If you are nervous then our office can offer you extra sedation to make sure you are comfortable throughout the surgery.
There are various different implants available, and the choice will depend on your individual needs and will be chosen to ensure the success and longevity of your implant. Although it may be possible to place the implants and restorations within a few days, some case may require a longer healing period.

Cost of Dental Implants
If you are missing one or more tooth then you may well have considered dental implants. For anyone who is suitable, having a dental implant is by far the best long-term way of replacing lost teeth.
What’s the Average Price?
But what is the average price of dental implants, and are they really worthwhile? The average price for an implant is comparable to replacing a tooth with a bridge.
in the Houston area a single replacement back implant tooth will cost around $3,450. This Includes Everything – Most of the Time*
This is for a back tooth if no bone needs to be built back up.
Front teeth are much more difficult to replace and cost more, and will usually need some bone added before the implant can be placed.
This includes the surgery to insert the titanium post and the implant crown.
*However this is only a guide as certain people may need extra procedures in order for the surgery to be successful. This can include adding bone, sinus elevations or guided tissue regeneration.
Disadvantage of Dentures and Bridges
If you already live with a dental bridge or denture then you’ll know these solutions are far from ideal. Dentures have a tendency to move around, making it difficult to eat all the foods you used to enjoy, decreasing confidence levels as they can make it tricky to speak.
Dentures are also quite an impermanent solution as they need replacing every three to six years. Even worse, if you have a denture for a number of years then you’ll notice the bony gum ridges getting flatter as the bone is reabsorbed. This can make it increasingly difficult to successfully retain dentures.
Dental bridges may last a little longer, but are still likely to need replacing every ten years or so.
What are the Parts of a Dental Implant?
Remember, that an ‘implant‘ is only one part of a usable dental implant. The actual dental implant is made up of 3 unique parts:
- Implant – a screw made of titanium that becomes the new tooth ‘root’. Titanium is not rejected by the body.
- Abutment – a small piece that insures a snug fit of the crown and implant – Made of ceramic or titanium.
- Crown – as a last step a crown or bridge is attached to the top of the implant as the final stage of the process
More to an Implant than Just an Implant
Remember, when looking at dental implant pricing a low quote may be a quote for only the implant or screw, not the entire dental implant. Call us and we will gladly review any quotes that you are concerned with.
