WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants are artificial teeth roots that provide a base for a permanent crown. When you think of false teeth, you are probably thinking of dentures. Dental implants are a type of false tooth, but they’re not dentures. They are permanent and attached to your jaw. The implant itself is just a base. The crown is the part that looks like a tooth and gives you that beautiful bright smile!
HOW MUCH DO DENTAL IMPLANTS COST?
The cost of dental implants will vary based on how many implants a patient receives, and where they receive them. Some insurance carriers provide insurance for restorative dental care. Ask your insurance provider if they give an allowance for dental implants. Contact Light Touch Dental Care for a dental implant consultation, and to receive a figure for cost.
HOW LONG DO DENTAL IMPLANTS LAST?
Dental implants are permanent. They are designed to be a forever solution to tooth loss. If properly cared for, dental implants should last for your lifetime, but the lifespan of a dental implant has technically been predicted at twenty-five years. However, many people never need their implants replaced after installation.
