Do I Need A Dental Implant For Every Missing Tooth?
This depends on how many teeth you are missing and where they are located. It also depends on whether you are suffering from serious issues (gum disease) with your remaining teeth. If you’re missing just a couple of teeth, it’s wise to replace each missing tooth with an implant.
However, if you’re missing a large number of teeth, we may opt to use dental implants to anchor an entire new set of upper and/or lower teeth. Typically, four to six implants are usually needed to restore an entire arch of teeth.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Dental Implants do in fact have a very high upfront cost compared to most other dental procedures, but they become more of an economical choice in the long run. Once you schedule a consultation, Dr. Kutlay will consult with you to find the best plan, but remember the total cost will be affected by how much work you need to be done. We offer many different finance options to fit your budget because our main goal is to help you receive the smile you deserve
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
There is no known limit to how long a dental implant can last. If you keep your gums and surrounding teeth healthy, there’s no reason your dental implants won’t last the remainder of your life.
After the dental implant procedure, you will receive all the benefits of natural teeth with your dental implants. It is important to continue good oral hygiene with the implants to prevent bacteria buildup, which can cause gum disease or bone loss.
