What Dental Implants Can Do?
- Replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.
- Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.
- Provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
Treatment time from placement of the implants until final restoration may take three to twelve months. Fees are based on the number of implants placed and the type of final restoration. They may range from $1,000 to $25,000 depending upon the patient's needs. The fees can be more accurately determined following the definitive diagnostic work-up by the prosthodontist and surgeon team members and will be dependent on many factors, such as patient needs, etc. Dental insurance may cover a portion of the treatment costs.
To ensure the best possible outcome, prospective implant patients are screened by a team of dental implant specialists at the UI College of Dentistry. The team includes either a periodontist or an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who implants the posts into the patient's mouth, and a prosthodontist who designs and makes the replacement teeth or permanent bridge. At the screening appointment, the specialists use an X-ray of the patient's mouth to determine if the bone in the jaw is adequate to hold the titanium posts. Models of the mouth may be made using a soft, pliable plastic compound.
